About This Activity

Spend your summer at the edge of individual and cultural transformation.

Overlooking the birthplace of the Renaissance in Florence, Italy, discover a new, rational approach to spiritual awakening—and a fresh perspective on how to create change in yourself and in the world.

Change is often challenging—whether you’re aspiring to change yourself, the world, or both. But according to spiritual teacher Andrew Cohen, founder of EnlightenNext and best-selling author of Evolutionary Enlightenment: A New Path to Spiritual Awakening, there is a source of deep inspiration that can carry you beyond the personal and cultural obstacles that arise when you decide to engage with the inevitably complex process of change.

In fact, Andrew’s contemporary spiritual path, known as Evolutionary Enlightenment, is designed to empower you not only to embrace the process of change as your own spiritual practice, but to actively play your own small but significant role in shaping the future.

And during this year's Summer Being & Becoming Retreat, the 5th annual retreat of it's kind you will have a full ten days to immerse yourself in the experience, principles, and vision of Evolutionary Enlightenment—a spiritual teaching uniquely equipped to meet the challenges of life in the twenty-first century.

This is a spirituality that's built for the modern person. —Todd M.

From the depths of meditation to the heights of shared philosophical and spiritual inquiry, you’ll discover the deeper dynamics of what it means to transform not only yourself, but the relationships and values you share with others.

As the highlight of only three opportunities of its kind this year, the Summer 2013 Being & Becoming Retreat is a rare opportunity to benefit from Andrew’s twenty-six years of experience at the leading edge of individual and cultural transformation.


The Summer 2013 Being & Becoming Retreat will give you the chance to spend long periods of time in meditation, contemplation, and active discussion with other like-minded individuals from across the globe. Throughout the retreat, you will be able to:

    Engage directly with Andrew Cohen every day as he guides you deeply into the path, practice, and philosophy of Evolutionary Enlightenment

    Spend long periods of time discovering the liberating power of meditation

    Awaken to what Andrew calls the “evolutionary impulse”—the part of you that’s only interested in creating the future

    Explore the spiritual physics of change and practice the key principles of Evolutionary Enlightenment in focused discussion groups facilitated by senior instructors.

    Build new relationships with other “evolutionaries” who share your interest in individual and cultural transformation

    Leave with a renewed sense of possibility for the future—and a path forward to begin putting Evolutionary Enlightenment into practice

Schedule and Costs

Andrew, along with the team at EnlightenNext, have designed this two week-long retreat to give you an experiential understanding of the deeper dynamics of individual and cultural transformation at our unique time in history.
