For the launch I will be offering an inspiring video teaching on the Mystery of Resurrection from the perspective of evolutionary spirituality.

Home for Evolving Mystics
Over twenty years ago, on a silent sea-side retreat, the universe revealed itself to me as a living, radiant display of Spirit-in-matter, involved with this great adventure of becoming that we call evolution. The illusion of separation between spirit and matter, humans and Earth, G_d and the universe, dissolved as my eyes and my heart opened to the mystery of the evolutionary process as a sacred story. I saw that very atom, amoeba, plant, every creature, including humans, played an integral role—each an intimate and beautiful expression of the evolving universe. Everything changed. I knew that I would spend the rest of my life coming to terms with this evolutionary awakening. I started to write books, speak, and travel throughout North America and Australia to share what had been offered to me. This started to occupy more and more of my time. What was being asked of me?
Last year, I left the security and stability of a thriving congregation ministry after 27 years to honour the “blessed unrest” I was feeling. I felt like I was walking a tight rope into an an unknown future. This is what it meant for me to find my own frothy edge of evolution. For the past seven years, wherever I gave presentations, the first question was always the same. What are the next steps? And, where do I find a home community to explore more this more deeply? Welcome home.
Then one day, it clicked. With the time I had left I wanted to offer the gift I had received to as many people as possible. I remembered Jesuit priest and paleontologist, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin’s idea of the noosphere. Writing in the early 20th century, he envisioned a time in the near future when Earth would be wrapped in a collective mind, an envelope of consciousness analogous to the geosphere and the biosphere on the physical level. Earth would evolve a mind capable of instantly connecting people from every corner of the planet. I wondered if the Internet was a partial realization of his vision, as well as a way forward for me. This is how Home for Evolving Mystics was born.
In my travels, I encountered a lot of diversity in people’s spiritual orientation. Many of you located yourself in the lineage of Jesus. You loved the community, but wanted to go deeper into the Christ Mystery. Others had no institutional affiliation, and shared with me unhappy stories of church. Some of you identified yourself as spiritual but not religious. Others were Buddhists, atheists, and secular humanists. But all of you shared one common desire: to connect with others who want to practice evolutionary spirituality. Teilhard de Chardin captured this longing for an evolutionary community succinctly:
“There is an almost sensual longing for communion with others who have a larger vision. The immense fulfillment of the friendships between those engaged in furthering the evolution of consciousness has a quality almost impossible to describe.”

None of us have the time we’d like to delve into our spiritual path. There is so much information out there, so many books to read, and videos to watch. Given the accelerating pace of change it’s hard to keep up. Relax and know that a home place exists to harvest and distill the quintessential information and practices of evolutionary spirituality. This comes naturally to me and I’ll be sharing everything that comes my way with you. But you know what’s really excites me? Each of you will also be sharing the resources that have changed your life. We’ll be building an unprecedented library of resources together. I hope that you will sign up today.
“Bruce Sanguin is an inspired teacher and a leading proponent of Evolutionary Spirituality. His courses resulted in the reframing of my relationship with the Divine and indeed the reconsidering of my definition of God. With Bruce you are not being given the word from on high, rather you are accompanied by an encouraging friend on the journey to enlightenment.”
The Evolution of Love
I’ve saved the most important benefit for the last. In my life the core evolutionary driver has been a yearning for love, both personally and in spiritual community. I’m not talking about the Hallmark version of love. We all know that love is costly, it’s subversive and decidedly unconventional. Much of my path has been, and continues to be, about mining down through the layers of fear in order to get to the diamond that is love. But the promise of realizing deeper, broader, and higher manifestations of love kept me moving forward. It has been a constant source of allurement in my own life. In all the great religious lineages, including the Judeo-Christian religion, mysterious source of allurement is associated with G_d, the Oneness manifesting in the glorious diversity and beauty of this evolving cosmos. Join us, as we support each other to take our next, best step in and toward the Heart of the Cosmos. I love this video. After you sign up I’ll send you a follow-up email. Remember we’re going live on April 20th!
