Description

They are very concerned with advancing their own knowledge and have made a commitment to lifelong learning. The Cultural Creatives brings us spectacular, inspiring good news: our long-desired sea change has occurred, each of us 'cultural creatives' is not alone, together we now amount to a critical mass sufficient to transform America!

The problems they discuss are truly international and include: `Corporate actions that cause large-scale environmental destruction and harm people's health'; `ignoring massive global extinctions of plant and animal species'; `discrimination against and abuse of women'; increase in `deaths from heart disease and cancer caused by poor diet or smoking'; `expecting people to stay in churches or religions that are stultifying, dead, and lacking in spirit'; `treating the psyche as steeped in sin . Do you dislike all the emphasis in modern culture on success and "making it," on getting and spending, on wealth and luxury goods?Richard Florida published a series of books on this identified 'creative class' and their upcoming economic importance. It describes the three main categories of people in the Western world: the Moderns, the Traditionals, and the newly-emergent Cultural Creatives. In Washington and on the Sunday morning news shows, politicians would certainly have strong opinions about what it all means, and pundits would be expressing their views with their usual certainty.

The underlying values that support these ideas include fairness, society-mindedness, global-mindedness, and the diffusion of power from the hands of the few. The underlying themes express serious ecological and planetary perspectives, emphasis on relationships and women's point of view, commitment to spirituality and psychological development, disaffection with the large institutions of modern life, including both left and right in politics, and rejection of materialism and status display. They take a deep interest in developing their spiritual body as much as their physical body and often turn to learning about many forms of religion or spirituality to satisfy their need for holistic spiritual growth. Having done a couple of courses with the lovely ladies of Cultural Creatives I can't recommend them highly enough.In her forties, settled in Northern California, she was writing about questions that wouldn't go away. Visionaries and futurists have been predicting a change of this magnitude for well over two decades. Use of the term 'integral' in reference to the creative-spiritual growth and transformation of human species was first made in early 1900s by Aurobindo Ghosh, who published teachings on Integral Yoga along with Mirra Alfassa, who founded the first international community of 'Cultural Creatives' in 1968, known as Auroville. Since 2000, she has also been a teacher of inner work that is, as you might have guessed, devoted to asking deep questions (the Diamond Approach to Spiritual Development®).
