Conscious evolution for thinking people
Millions of people around the world find themselves searching for a more meaningful, relevant, and profound way to engage with life. Not only do they want to become more conscious as individuals, they want to personally participate in the creation of a better world. Often they turn to spiritual media to help them understand the complexity of our world, and to find purpose and meaning.
Many media outlets today, from small niche publications to mainstream television shows, are seeking to meet that need. Indeed, if you’ve been paying attention to the convergence of spirituality and popular culture, you’ll notice a variety of trends: some media outlets cover positive news—think Ode magazine and Current TV; others help individuals to find more personal purpose, meaning, and happiness in life—think Oprah and her online course with Eckhart Tolle; and still others attempt to engage people in more meaningful social action—think Good magazine and Mother Jones.
Where does EnlightenNext fall within that spectrum? Well, from a certain perspective, it doesn’t. Although EnlightenNext shares audiences and certain similarities with other spiritual media, it is also doing something decidedly different; it is creating a category of its own. That’s why we’re just as easily associated with Wired magazine as we are with Harper’s and The Economist and yet none of those associations adequately pinpoint the core value of EnlightenNext’s role in culture. You might call that core value “conscious evolution for thinking people.” At EnlightenNext we call ourselves “the magazine for Evolutionaries.” We are a niche publication for those “Evolutionaries,” for people who are passionate about the evolution of consciousness and culture. We are the place that leading thinkers in science, spirituality, politics, ecology, and business look to for an in-depth perspective on these many areas of life.
EnlightenNext provides content that is at once philosophically rich, spiritually deep, and immediately accessible. Its in-depth features are a refreshing respite from today’s sound bite culture. Yet it also includes enlightening and pithy commentary that go far beyond the status quo of today’s spiritual marketplace and the world of cultural commentary and current events.
Ultimately, EnlightenNext is offering a new way to think about—and live—life. For individuals who find themselves at the crossroads of the old and the new, EnlightenNext answers questions that traditional religious worldviews and even science can no longer satisfy: Who are we? Why are we here? And where are we going? We give our audience a “meta” context—a new worldview, or perspective, that synthesizes the relationship between self, culture, and cosmos into one coherent whole. And we do so not simply as a group of investigative journalists gathering opinions and reporting the news, but rather as leaders in this evolutionary movement who care deeply about where our world is heading and are inspired to create a better future.
Calling All Activists, Idealists, and Evolutionaries
If we are serious about creating a better future, it’s up to us to make sure it happens! How? By participating in the greatest endeavor there is – the evolution of the leading edge of consciousness. The fourteen-billion-year project that is our evolving universe has reached a critical juncture where it needs conscious, creative human beings to help build the next step, together.
