Urban Retreat Barcelona

Awaken into Action: An Urban Retreat in Barcelona


Happy Yoga Laforja

Awaken into Action

March 8th - 10th 2019

Interior work versus activism

As a species, we are facing overwhelming challenges: climate change, political turmoil, overpopulation, hunger, poverty and potentially even our own annihilation. Many highly respected scientists and thought leaders tell us that unless we act now the future is profoundly bleak.

When facing such great upheaval, some in the spiritual world say that the time for inner work is over – only taking urgent action will offer us any chance of saving ourselves and the planet.

In these dark times, it’s all too easy to forget how far we have actually come. While we cannot afford to be complacent, it’s important to remember the extraordinary progress we have made. Despite the challenges, the creative potential we have to catalyse great and positive change, both individually and collectively, is enormous.

But we need to ask ourselves some searching questions. What is the deepest reason for our current predicament? In this video presentation, Andrew argues that it is not ill will that drives the issues we face, but rather human ignorance. 

There is always farther to go in solving the problem of human ignorance, and the more profound the challenge, the deeper the answers must be. Ultimately these are found in the cultivation of higher consciousness, so in reality the choice between interior work and activism is a false one.

To find creative solutions, we need to discover a way to reach far beyond our personal dramas and egoic self-concern. We need have deep and consistent access to the source of creative inspiration itself.

Evolutionary Enlightenment is a spiritual teaching that asks each and every one of us to awaken to the deepest and best part of ourselves – and shows us how to actually do that.

Only by continuing to work on the evolution of consciousness in ourselves, by evolving consciousness beyond ego, can we hope to find an inexhaustible source of creative inspiration, meaning, and purpose that will give us the strength and courage to confront all of these immense challenges.

What people are saying

Andrew Cohen's teachings are brilliant in their simplicity. I have been a spiritual seeker for 25 years, and have experimented with multiple teachings. I find Andrew's approach, temperament and commitment to be not only powerful, but also fully approachable. His dual approach of merging traditional spiritual teachings with evolutionary spirituality cuts through much confusion and distortion. Andrew Cohen is a truly inspiring teacher.Rudy
As a scholar, I live in a world where people are passionate about articulating the nature of the dual world. Andrew Cohen is different – he is pioneering the articulation of the non-dual and the inter-penetration of these two realities. There is quite simply no other teacher who can do this right now. In a loud and confusing spiritual marketplace, Andrew is the real thing. His transmission will change your life forever, if you let it.Sally
I feel a deep sense of honor and joy having been a part of Andrew's first Evolutionary Enlightenment online course. His stable and enlightened presence allows room for the full discovery of me in a relative sense and also provokes an ongoing and living desire in me for true freedom and liberation. Karen
