There is a new spiritual teaching emerging, rooted in spiritual experience, unfolding naturally with our evolution as a human species.

Articulating this new wave, or second renaissance, as Steve McIntosh calls it, is his purpose and passion, and he speaks about it with great fervor and heart in this philosophical commentary.

This new teaching is not reliant on belief structures, traditions, or religious practices, rather, it is a process of allowing conscious evolution to inspire and steer us towards our particular purpose in its unfolding, a more whole version of ourselves, and a greater appreciation and expression of goodness, truth, and beauty. This new path integrates the best wisdom from ancient religions, scientism, and pluralism to carry forth what we already know to be true, while allowing for expansion and change to include more perspectives as evolution unfolds, making it more applicable and appealing to our post post-modern world.

Join Steve as he lays out the history of our evolution as a species thus far, and its promise and possibility for the future. We stand on the edge of an exciting precipice of new understanding. We are changing more rapidly than we ever have before, and discovering our role and responsibility in this unfolding brings a new sense of personal empowerment and spiritual maturity to bear. How is evolution its own spiritual teaching? Watch and find out...
