Andrew Cohen delivered a fantastic talk in the presence of over one hundred people, in the immaculate venue of St Johns church on Princess St Edinburgh. In two hours Andrew laid out his Kosmocentric vision for who we are, where we have been, and where we are going. His emphasis was to engage people and encourage them to think in a much broader way by laying out the fact that we have all been produced by a cosmic process and that process is going somewhere!
He explained that in Spiritual development, peace or transcendence is only part of the picture. The emphasis in Andrews Cohen’s teaching is that meditation is not an end in itself but it’s the foundation of what he calls the new enlightenment-the awakening to the evolutionary impulse. When we have an experience of this evolutionary impulse we experience an overwhelming ecstatic sense of care for the life process that liberates us from any sense of self contraction Then the goal is to do the spiritual work individually and collectively by riding on the waves of this energy to transform ourselves out of the culturally conditioned self to become higher more integrated conscious expressions of spirit in action! After the talk – Director of Edinburgh Inter-faith presented Andrew with a tartan scarf as a memento of his trip. This was a beautiful touch.
