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.
