Episode 57: Being evolution through doing revolution

In this episode I have the delight of connecting with author, teacher and integral revolutionist Terry Patten who is visiting Oslo, Norway in February 2013. In our conversation we engage some of the core themes that Terry has been advocating the last couple of years. For instance, how can we – both individually and collectively – find a balanced and integral expression of our human propensity for doing and being? Is it possible to transition from only being a seeker to becoming a practitioner? And if so, how can we become effective change agents in the ever present expression of evolutionary processes? These questions, any many others, have been consistently explored by Terry through different mediums, such as the highly acclaimed book Integral Life Practice, which he co-wrote together with Ken Wilber, Marco Morelli and Adam Leonard, and the popular teleseminar series Beyond Awakening.

If you feel inspired or provoked by our conversation feel free to add your comments after the interview. You can also send in a written piece of work and get it published together with this episode. Further details can be found here.
