Banyen's Description: 

This book details the vision of interspirituality within a comprehensive and powerful synthesis of world religions and spirituality, the discoveries of modern science, and the developmental and evolutionary view of history. It is the first book to review and predict the ongoing history of world religions and spirituality in the context of developmental history, the evolutionary consciousness movement, and current scientific understandings of anthropology, human cognitive development, brain/mind and scientific consciousness studies.

 This book addresses Brother Wayne Teasdale’s vision of “The Interspiritual Age,” a vision that parallels the equally well-known visions of the world’s developmental and evolutionary consciousness movements (known therein as the coming “Integral Age” or “Age of Evolutionary Consciousness”) and the international humanist movement (known therein as the emerging “International Ethical Manifold”). As such The Coming Interspiritual Age is the first synthesis of interfaith and interspirituality with the popular writings of integral leaders Ken Wilber and Don Beck.

The book includes provocative sections regarding the inherent unity within the world’s religious and spiritual understanding (especially their shared mystical understandings), the relationship of these and modern scientific studies of consciousness and brain/mind, the developmental and evolutionary views of history, the inevitable ongoing processes of world globalization and multiculturalism, the emergent understanding of the Divine Feminine, the nature of spiritual experience and the reputed spirit realms, and the various predictions around and surrounding the year 2012. The book concludes with extensive “how-to” sections regarding the development and practice of interspirituality as it can happen both within the world’s current religious traditions as well as in new, creative, and entrepreneurial settings worldwide.

Interspirituality is the natural discussion among human beings about what we are experiencing... In terms of our developing human consciousness, interspirituality is the movement of all these discussions toward the experience of profound interconnectedness, unity consciousness, and oneness...

This experience ultimately renders secondary the importance of beliefs, creeds, and theologies. It is enough, they say, to truly discover and live in loving recognition of one another.

“If you’re not sure what this all means—and even if you are—get this visionary book and find out what all the excitement and enthusiasm is about. It might very well change your world!” —Ken Wilber, author of The Integral Vision
