We’re all being overwhelmed, as never before, by collective challenges and modern stressors. Life on a global level, and in our day to day, can feel daunting – our hearts and hopes sagging, our inspiration and creativity dried up.
So where do we find refuge and spiritual sustenance?
In the heart of truly evolutionary relationships, which include not only our primary intimate partner but also our heart-friends, spiritual allies, and collaborators in our larger mission.
In the beautiful container of a higher love relationship, you can become more fully yourself, discover new dimensions of your being, and fuel your greatest acts of creativity, activism and service.
Higher love or what Andrew and Chris call "Evolutionary" love is the gateway into your greatest fulfillment and your deepest blessings.
It’s where you can show your vulnerability and be loved for your authenticity and idiosyncrasies. It’s not merely a union through which you seek passion — it generates the passion you need to bring your most authentic creative self forward. It’s what makes life all the more worth living.
For too long, we’ve thought of love in limited ways, applying only to romantic relationships.
But the truth is that we can forge multiple relationships that are tender, real and deeply healing... as well as exhilarating in their depths, creativity and power. Our husband, wife or partner may be the most central but there’s no reason to limit evolutionary love to one person alone.
In fact, as you open to this all-inclusive love, you realize that truly evolutionary love is the passionate energy that can propel your career, your higher calling, and your legacy.
Through evolutionary love, authenticity finds freedom and generates love in every direction.
In this special call event, two world-renowned spiritual mentors, who have forged an evolutionary love relationship in service to their work in the world, share the fruits of their journey — including the methods they explore in their recent release, Evolutionary Love Relationships: Passion, Authenticity and Activism.
