The guest speaker is Carter Phipps , author of the newly-released book EVOLUTIONARIES: Unlocking the Spiritual and Cultural Potential of Science’s Greatest Idea which is now available from all good bookstores! Award-winning journalist Carter Phipps introduces the visionary scientists, philosophers, and spiritual thinkers who are quietly revolutionizing our understanding of life, the universe, and just about everything.
We’ve all heard about fossils and fruit flies, Darwin and Dawkins. But Carter Phipps argues that the idea of evolution is much more profound and far-reaching. What if our current scientific understanding of evolution was just the tip of the iceberg? What if there’s a way to see evolution that could transform not just your understanding of the physical world, but also your most fundamental sense of self-identity? That could give you a rational, intellectually informed sense of optimism for the future? That could even provide a new source of spiritual insight and inspiration?
That’s what you’ll discover in EVOLUTIONARIES, the new book by former EnlightenNext magazine Executive Editor Carter Phipps. Described by Publishers Weekly as “masterful” and highly recommended by Ken Wilber, Deepak Chopra, and other luminaries, this book is essential reading for change-agents everywhere. http://readevolutionaries.com
