Integral Spirituality is being widely called the most important book on spirituality in our time.Applying his highly acclaimed integral approach, Ken Wilber formulatesa theory of spirituality that honors the truths of modernity andpostmodernity-including the revolutions in science and culture-whileincorporating the essential insights of the great religions. He showshow spirituality today combines the enlightenment of the East, whichexcels at cultivating higher states of consciousness, with theenlightenment of the West, which offers developmental and psychodynamicpsychology. Each contributes key components to a more integralspirituality.Onthe basis of this integral framework, a radically new role for theworld's religions is proposed. Because these religions have such atremendous influence on the worldview of the majority of the earth'spopulation, they are in a privileged position to address some of thebiggest conflicts we face. By adopting a more integral view, the greatreligions can act as facilitators of human development: from magic tomythic to rational to pluralistic to integral-and to a global societythat honors and includes all the stations of life along the way.
