Evolutionary is a word we hear more and more at the leading edges of progressive culture, but what does it really mean? Why is it important? Who or what is an evolutionary anyway?
Join Carter Phipps, the Executive Editor of EnlightenNext magazine, for a fascinating journey into the next wave of personal and cultural change, as he explores the subject of his forthcoming book: Evolutionaries: The People, Passions, and Perspectives That Are Shaping a New Synthesis of Science and Spirit.
