Sat. February 4: Toward the Ascendant: Theology & Spirituality Today with Ken Wilber
Toward the Ascendant: Theology & Spirituality Today with Ken Wilber
Saturday, February 4
Presented by: Bruce Garrison, Pastor of Dwelling Place Church
Ken Wilber is one of the greatest psychological and spiritual thinkers of the 20th century. Taking the spiritual writers from all the major world faith traditions, Wilber helps us to go from what he calls "flatland" thinking, with no spiritual awareness
or understanding, to a place where we are living in the ascendant, in true union with the divine. During "Toward the Ascendant," we will explore some of Wilber's larger ideas and attempt to bring some spiritual and also practical meaning for our lives in the 21st century.
