Evolutionary Landscapes is a multi-media online magazine exploring the evolution of human culture and consciousness.
At EL, we trace the intersections of politics, media, cultural studies and spirituality, searching to understand the transitional and liminal times we inhabit. Inspired by the concept of “integral,” or a-waring “wholeness” as described by cultural philosopher Jean Gebser, EL attempts to be a place that can hold many spaces within itself. A crossroads, where the critical exchange of ideas and perspectives create a more robust, and most importantly, more human understanding.
Exploring Consciousness, Human Potential: Present & Future
EL is a crossroads. A borderland of ideas and perspectives. Although “the evolution of consciousness” is a singular topic, it bridges many disciplines. It is a complex hermeneutic, made up of both academic and personal narratives. It is both the voice of our time and the sophisticated analysis of it. It is both spiritual and scientific, liminal and social. So at EL, we are interested in adapting multiple avenues of exploration. Both the well-paved roads of thought, and the little nooks and crannies that burst open into un-tread lands.
We live now in such transformative, rapidly changing times where so much is at stake. So much needs to be re-examined, or some argue re-discovered, about our consciousness: our relationship to the planet, to the environment, each other, to spirits or ancestors or the psyche. Our psyche cries out for excavation and renewal.
Many are calling for a “new consciousness.” EL examines what that “new consciousness” might look like, drawing from both academics, independent scholars, futurists, anthropologists, mystics, shamans, and much more.
We believe that versatility comes from the ability to traverse different worlds. So academics as well as esotericists are encouraged to partake in our discussions. Robustness comes from the meshwork of exchanging ideas; speaking between worlds, stepping through new doorways. Therefore, EL welcomes contributors of all kinds and creeds. It is a collective experiment that draws from the intelligence – and wisdom – of many traditions, seeking to understand our inherited age.
Contribute to EL
We have invited, and collaborated with many writers who stem from depth and transpersonal psychology, the humanities, yoga, art, integral theory, integral yoga, esotericism, Traditionalism, mythology, and social science.
Of particular interest and passion for us is bridging the worlds of social activism and spirituality. Writers who wish to contribute in this regard are strongly encouraged to email us, and submit their work.
As far as mediums go: all are welcome.
We encourage poetry, photography, blogs, essays, articles, YouTube videos. Whatever else is possible to publish, we will. Eventually, we hope to have EL create e-book publications for Kindle and other e-Readers.
EL also seeks to be a place of engaged education. A learning space should be participatory, we believe. Active and dancing with ideas. Immersed in life with books under our arm.
For this reason we hope to provide high-quality articles studying the evolution of consciousness, while also making our content accessible and interesting for all. We wish to bring the subject of consciousness evolution to a larger audience, and believe it is not only possible, but relevant for the complex and multicultural times we are living in.
So welcome. Bring your words, your voice, your intrigue. Come writers, academics, story-tellers and myth-makers. Come counter-culturalists and esotericists, there’s a seat waiting for you beside the philosophers and social scientists, folklorists and dancers. Here we make a new song and dance, and attempt to unravel just what this age of ours is all about.
