"Andrew Cohen has arrived at an insight that is crucial for our historical situation. Enlightenment is not a movement out of the everyday world but is instead a profound entrance into deep participation in the evolution of the universe. Rarely have I encountered such simple, searing wisdom connecting religious ideas about enlightenment with the scientific understanding of an evolutionary cosmos."
Brian Swimme, Ph.D.

"What Is Enlightenment? performs an essential function in our time, awakening people to the plight of the planet and to their own great sacred potential."
Rabbi Zalman Schachter Shalomi
Founder, ALEPH Alliance for Jewish Renewal
"In clear, straightforward, often informal language, Andrew Cohen leads us on a journey to the awesome spiritual realm that lies beyond ego. This rare gem of a book ends with a description of enlightenment’s purpose that may shock some traditionalists but will delight those who see the essential role of spirit in life’s further development."

"Hardhitting, opinionated, smart, and unique - not words one would usually associate with a 'spiritual magazine. But that's what this magazine pulls off. You may not always agree with its articles, but you will always be challenged to think, feel, and seek with more clarity and depth."
Cofounder, Omega Institute
Author of The Seeker's Guide
"I believe that What Is Enlightenment? is perhaps the finest magazine available on the topic of spirituality, modern and ancient. It asks all the right questions, the really hard questions; it is not afraid to challenge sacred cows or postmodern clichés; it cuts through to the very heart of the matter."
