Spiritual Evolution: Where we have come from and where we are going

This is a recording of my conversation with Rupert Sheldrake at Alternatives, which meets at St James Piccadilly, London, on Monday 10th February 2020.

We use the evolutionary ideas of Owen Barfield to talk about our times of spiritual experimentation. People are exploring an enormous range of powerful practices that expand inner life and reveal the transcendent. So how can we make sense of this moment? What’s emerging? Are there things to learn from similar periods of evolution in the past?

We range from the significance of Christianity in the past to the possibility of cosmic consciousness in the future. En route, we encounter Advaita Vedanta, the music of angels, the meaning of tragedy, quantum physics and spiritual practices.
