Radical Regeneration: Sacred Activism and the Renewal of the World
Andrew Harvey will plunge into the central themes of his new book, Radical Regeneration, co-written with Carolyn Baker. He'll describe his vision of our current global dark night as the evolutionary birthing ground of a new humanity.
In this session, you’ll discover:
- How the dark night is an ordained evolutionary transformation that destroys dangerous delusions and habits
- How to draw upon the wisdom of the great evolutionary mystics Shri Aurobindo and Father Bede Griffiths
- The transfiguration engoldenment process and its link to Sacred Activism, the peaceful revolution of Love in Action that he believes can renew the world
Andrew Harvey is an author, speaker, and founder/director of the Institute of Sacred Activism, an international organization that invites concerned people to take up the challenge of our multiple contemporary global crises. By becoming inspired, effective, and practical agents of institutional and systemic change, we the people can create peace and sustainability.
Andrew has taught at Oxford University, Cornell University, Hobart and William Smith Colleges, the California Institute of Integral Studies, and the University of Creation Spirituality, as well as at various spiritual centers throughout the U.S. He was the subject of the 1993 BBC documentary The Making of a Modern Mystic, and appears also in Rumi: Turning Ecstatic and The Consciousness of the Christ: Reclaiming Christ for a New Humanity.
He's a co-author of the bestselling The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying, and has worked with the great Iranian Sufi dancer Banafsheh Sayyad in producing a film, In the Fire of Grace, which marries Sufi-inspired dances to the stages of Rumi’s understanding of the path of divine love. He has written or edited more than 30 books, and received many awards, including the Benjamin Franklin Award and the Mind Body Spirit Award.
