Chris Parish

The Ultimate Adventure

A Voices from the Edge event in London


For almost two decades, Chris Parish has been studying and introducing people to the Evolutionary Enlightenment teachings of spiritual teacher Andrew Cohen. In association with Cohen (who is also the founder and editor in chief of What Is Enlightenment? magazine), he has been developing an accessible, intersubjective process by which people can explore—and literally co-create—the leading edge of consciousness itself.

Parish has been leading these “Enlightened Communication” forums, ranging in size from six to sixty people, in the U.S., the U.K., and across western Europe. Participants have the opportunity to directly experience and explore the revelatory depths and ecstatic intimacy of the enlightened perspective. The groups have become a living laboratory for Parish's exploration of our collective human potential and for the potential of Cohen's unique, 21st-century spiritual path.

In this Voices talk, recorded live in London, Chris discusses the historical basis for this work (invoking the work of evolutionary philosophers Hegel, Aurobindo, Teilhard de Chardin, and Ken Wilber) and presents a compelling portrait of the remarkable advances and discoveries he has made in this new and revolutionary field of conscious evolution.

Much of the graphics and text Chris refers to in his presentation are available on Andrew Cohen's website, and we've included specific links below:
