What Is Enlightenment? – The Magazine.

by Colin Whitby


As you will have noticed this edition of The Magic of Being was inspired by a magazine called What Is Enlightenment? which it’s introduction advises ‘is not a spiritual magazine’.

Well, it’s not just a spiritual magazine, they say. It is a spiritual, cultural, philosophical, and otherwise category-busting magazine committed to bringing a new perspective to politics, business, science, the arts, and the environment.

WIE is the engaged, evolutionary movement that has emerged from our passionate pursuit of the question of what enlightenment really is, and what it means in the world today.

At its core, WIE is about finding new ways to think: new answers to the difficult questions that are the challenge of our moment in history. Those answers, we strongly believe, can only be found by looking freshly at the emerging reality around us, without relying on older solutions that were sufficient for simpler problems.

And what we need are not just answers, but new ways to find those answers. This is the real mission of WIE, for which we need not only radical individual creativity, but radical collective engagement.

The latest edition of WIE explores Ecology, Politics, and Consciousness, Rebooting Environmentalism for the Twenty-First Century. Will a new environmental movement's fearless embrace of technology and human ingenuity help pave the way to a “bright green” future? Does integral philosophy have what it takes to solve the seemingly impossible puzzle of global politics? Can the human potentials currently being discovered at the leading edge of consciousness help guide the way?

WIE explores these provocative questions—and others—in an attempt to envision a truly life-positive twenty-first-century world. Featuring Ken Wilber, Steve McIntosh, Thomas de Zengotita, Jim Marion, and more.

We loved reading this magazine, and we found it enlightening too….
