The Second Axial Age — Are Religion and Spirituality Really Evolving?
Time & Location
About the Event
Historians of the great religions often refer to the First Axial Age (centered on the 6th century BCE). A religious and cultural “turning of the axis,” it was marked by the emergence of a new individual consciousness that made it possible for ancient humans to step forth from purely tribal existence. This series will explore the idea that human culture has entered a Second Axial Age, which is giving rise to a new global consciousness. Still acutely aware of our individual existence, we begin to recognize our roles as global citizens. Participants will encounter the two great periods of human spiritual evolution and hear Eastern and Western insights into the transformation that may now be underway.
