Are your an evolutionary? If you are reading this, the answer is most likely "yes." Kundalini is surely a major engine of evolution of consciousness, and those of us undergoing its awakening process are therefore, by definition, "evolutionaries." We are in the forefront of this all important phenomenon, and--I feel--that what we do and experience is in service to the higher cause of the advancement of humanity.
This evening, there will be an important radio presentation by Carter Phipps, who is the executive editor of EnlightenNext, a major publication dedicated to the study of expanding consciousness. Carter is an extremely perceptive and articulate spokesperson for the evolution of consciousness. Further, he and I share a special bond.
A few years ago, his magazine (then called What Is Enlightenment?) was doing a piece on the use of the internet for spiritual purposes, and he was conducting a telephone interview with me about my (this) blog. In the course of our conversation we discovered that we both grew up in the same state (Oklahoma) and had attended the same university (Oklahoma University). Carter then mentioned that his mother had attended graduate school there (in English) and it turned out that I knew her for I had also taken graduate work in English at the same time she was there. I thought this was a rather remarkable synchronicity, and since then have felt a special connection with Carter.
I urge you to listen to his talk tonight or, if that is not possible, then you can hear it later by following the instructions given below. Here is more information from the internet:

Are You An Evolutionary?
The Birth of a New Kind of Spiritual Practitioner
with Carter Phipps
Today, Thursday, December 16th
at 5:00pm Pacific (GMT-8)
I hope you'll join me tonight for my dialogue with Carter Phipps. Carter is an fresh and authentic observer of the leading edge of consciousness and culture. Every time I hear him speak, new connections, provocative insights, and inspiring possibilities emerge. Our subject: how a new understanding of "evolutionary" spirituality is creating a powerful bridge between the worlds of spirituality and social activism.
Carter has recently been finishing his important new book, slated for release in the fall of 2011, Evolutionaries: The People, Passions, and Perspectives That Are Shaping a New Synthesis of Science and Spirit. He asserts that something new and important is emerging at the leading edge of the evolution of consciousness and culture. Maybe you've seen and felt it yourself -- are you an Evolutionary?
Please join us to find out and to engage the conversation!
