Solving the Existential Crisis of Humanity Through the Evolution of Consciousness with Practical Applications: Cultural Integration Fellowship 8/7/2022
A talk at the Cultural Integration Fellowship San Francisco, Ca. on August 7, 2022 by Santosh Krinsky.  The Cultural Integration Fellowship was founded by Dr. Haridas Chaudhuri in 1951 along with his wife Bina.  He also was the founder the California Institute of Integral Studies.  Santosh Krinsky is the editor in chief at Lotus Press, a published author of 16 books focusing on "Readings" in the main writings of Sri Aurobindo, and author of a daily blog at http://sriaurobindostudies.wordpress.com    The talk focuses on the crisis we are facing in the world today, its causes and potential lines of solution, the evolution of consciousness and the transitional phase we are in today, with a view toward the next stage of evolution and how it can help to solve the problems we experience in today's crisis.  There is also a discussion of the role of Auroville as a cauldron of experimentation in applying a new paradigm to the evolutionary crisis, and the Flourish program sponsored by Auroville International USA http://www.aviusa.org/flourish
