Integral New York: A New Republic of the Heart Discussion with Terry Patten
April 23, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm EDT
Integral New York is excited to host author and (R)evolutionary Terry Patten, who will read from and discuss his new book A New Republic of the Heart: An Ethos for Revolutionaries. We hope you’ll join us! Learn more and register here.
Terry Patten’s new book, A New Republic of the Heart: An Ethos for Revolutionaries, has been called “required reading for all humans over the age of 16”, and “THE manual for all who want to meet this moment as the historical call to action that it is.” Terry reveals how our personal practice, and our relationships, can and must be an effective response to our world’s larger crises, recognizing “what time it is on the planet”. Wholeness, he shows, has potent agency. In our age of fragmentation, the most subversive act is to practice wholeness — to awaken and embody love and integrity.
This groundbreaking book expands the definition of Integral Life Practice and of activism. It synthesizes personal and interpersonal practice with the outer work of service, politics, social entrepreneurship and lifestyle transformation. And through a series of powerful new insights it knits integral theory with current events as never before. A breath of fresh air is reinvigorating integral evolutionary culture by making obvious how a more integral consciousness must rise, and is rising, to meet the challenge of our political and ecological emergencies.
During the evening, Terry will give a short talk, facilitate small group conversations, and engage questions and answers about the issues of our times.
