Evolutionary Consciousness and the Human Species

February 23 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every 2 weeks that begins at 1:00 pm on Tuesday, repeating until February 23, 2021

Part 1    What is Evolutionary Consciousness in Light of the Human Species?

We will look anew at how the emergence of Homo Sapiens two hundred thousand years ago was a bright, celebrative moment in the evolutionary process. We will open our eyes today to the awareness of humanity as a beautiful creation in the Universe. As an integral part of the cosmos, all are in relationship with a capacity to know, live, love and create. Our species is a significant presence in the web of life.

Part 2   The Responsibility of the Human Species in Light of Evolutionary Consciousness

This presentation will explore where the human species is right now, what the place of humankind is and what will sustain our kind in the movement forward. Joanna Macy names where humankind is right now with these words, “Now, in this very time, these three rivers—anguish for the world, scientific breakthroughs and ancestral teachings flow together.” The power of evolving consciousness continues to awaken us to what it means to be alive on a living planet in this 21st century.
