Andrew Cohen is a pioneering spiritual teacher who has relied upon his own fiercely independent inquiry to inform the unique approach to spiritual life, he calls Evolutionary Enlightenment. With his growing international body of students, Andrew seeks to create new pathways for the evolution of consciousness and for the future of spiritual life.
Lee Lozowick is a maverick guru with students around the world, who draws upon core teachings and methods from a variety of traditions. A modern teacher with a deep love for the wisdom at the heart of the great religions, Lee endeavors to weave together these venerable strands into potent and relevant forms for spiritual life in the 21st century.
In a profound and intimate dialogue, these two American masters discuss the core issues and common challenges inherent in the endeavor to enlighten other people. And in our postmodern culture driven by materialism and self-infatuation, their job isn’t getting any easier. Traditional models—still as relevant as they were a thousand years ago—describe a dynamic hierarchical relationship between teacher and student. But even this sacred bond is now mired in the modern fixation on equality at any cost, and kept in check by the commonly held suspicion toward any form of authority whatsoever. Still, Cohen and Lozowick spare no effort in their engagement with the world of samsara and with the aspirations, and equivocations, of seekers and students alike, driven as they are by the mysterious, compelling, and timeless mandate to teach.
