Since its inception as a small semiannual publication in 1992, EnlightenNext magazine has spent nearly two decades tracking and shaping the leading edge of contemporary spiritual thought.
Initially bearing the name What Is Enlightenment?, the magazine was founded by spiritual teacher Andrew Cohen as a vehicle for making sense of often competing ideas about the nature and relevance of enlightenment in our time. Featuring interviews with hundreds of respected mystics, yogis, philosophers, activists, futurists, and scientists, it soon became known as one of the world’s most authoritative forums for serious spiritual inquiry, eventually evolving into an award-winning international quarterly published in multiple languages in print and online.
Over the last ten years, EnlightenNext has dedicated itself to helping define a truly comprehensive and progressive evolutionary spirituality for the twenty-first century. Bringing its unique perspective to bear on many different domains of contemporary life, from spirituality and religion to business, science, politics, the arts, and the environment, the magazine has sought to explore and illuminate the growing role we all can play as active participants in the continuing evolution of consciousness and culture.
This timeline display, organized into four distinct eras, illustrates the evolution of EnlightenNext over the past eighteen years and includes all forty-six issues of the magazine.

  • 1. The
Evolu*on
of
EnlightenNext
 Magazine
 1992
‐
Present

  • 2. Since
its
incep0on
as
a
small
semiannual
publica0on
in
1992,
EnlightenNext
magazine
has
spent
nearly
two
 decades
tracking
and
shaping
the
leading
edge
of
contemporary
spiritual
thought.
 Ini0ally
bearing
the
name
What
Is
Enlightenment?,
the
magazine
was
founded
by
spiritual
teacher
Andrew
 Cohen
as
a

vehicle
for
making
sense
of
oJen
compe0ng
ideas
about
the
nature
and
relevance
of
enlightenment
 in
our
0me.
Featuring
interviews
with
hundreds
of
respected
mys0cs,
yogis,
philosophers,
ac0vists,
futurists,
and
 scien0sts,
it
soon
became
known
as
one
of
the
world’s
most
authorita0ve
forums
for
serious
spiritual
inquiry,
 eventually
evolving
into
an
award‐winning
interna0onal
quarterly
published
in
mul0ple
languages
in
print
and
 online.
 Over
the
last
ten
years,
EnlightenNext
has
dedicated
itself
to
helping
define
a
truly
comprehensive
and
 progressive
evolu0onary
spirituality
for
the
twenty‐first
century.
Bringing
its
unique
perspec0ve
to
bear
on
many
 different
domains
of
contemporary
life,
from
spirituality
and
religion
to
business,
science,
poli0cs,
the
arts,
and
 the
environment,
the
magazine
has
sought
to
explore
and
illuminate
the
growing
role
we
all
can
play
as
ac0ve
 par0cipants
in
the
con0nuing
evolu0on
of
consciousness
and
culture.
 This
0meline
display,
organized
into
four
dis0nct
eras,
illustrates
the
evolu0on
of
EnlightenNext
over
the
past
 eighteen
years
and
includes
all
forty‐six
issues
of
the
magazine.

  • 3. What
is
enlightenment?

 Exploring
perennial
spiritual
truths.
 Issues
1‐8

  • 4. “I
have
found
and
con0nue
to
find
that
 there
is
so
much
confusion,
 misunderstanding,
and
misinforma0on
 as
to
what
Enlightenment
actually
is
and
 what
it
really
means.
That
is
why
I
have
 encouraged
my
students
to
start
this
 publica0on
as
a
vehicle
to
present
our
 ongoing
inves0ga0on
into
this
ques0on,
 and
to
share
our
discoveries
with
those
 who
are
also
interested
in
this
vast
and
 most
subtle
subject.”

challenge
awai0ng
us
is
to
go
 much
deeper
as
human
beings,
to
 abandon
superficial
prejudices
and
 preferences,
to
expand
 understanding
to

of
 which

experiments

truth,

and
primary
subjects

 investigation

Indeed,

completely

the
very
 edge
of
our
own
spiritual
 understanding.”

the

 implica*ons
of
evolu*on?
 Issues
21‐41

  • 29. “A
theology
of
evolu0on
sees
God
as
 deeply
involved
in
the
evolu0onary
 process
of
the
world.
God
is
making
 the
world
by
means
of
evolu0on.
And
 the
evolu0onary
process
in
its
turn
is
 seen
as
striving
toward
God.
So
God
 is
Self‐expressing
and
Self‐realizing
in
 evolu0on.

  • 40. “We
have
no
choice.
Evolu0on
is
 conscious
of
itself
now.
There’s
no
 going
back.
Therefore
we
have
to
 take
it
into
our
own
hands….
So
if
 you’re
spiritually
ac0ve
today,
you’re
 helping
to
understand
evolu0on.
 That’s
my
strongest
belief.

we

to
create
a
post‐ traditional
consensus
about
the
great
 significance
and
place
of
Spirit
in
the
 human
experience.
And
this
has
to
be
 generated
by
those
of
us
who
have
seen
 beyond
the
veil
of
appearances
and
 have
experienced
those
deeper
 metaphysical
domains
to
such
a
 profound
degree
that
we’re
willing
to
 bear
witness
in
public.”
