Craig Hamilton

Craig Hamilton is a pioneer in the emerging field of evolutionary spirituality. In his inspired writings, talks, and teachings, he calls us to awaken beyond the confines of the separate ego and dedicate our lives to the further evolution of consciousness itself.

As the founder and guiding force behind Integral Enlightenment, Craig offers spiritual guidance and teachings to a growing international community of students in 25 countries around the world. Through his online Academy for Evolutionaries, he teaches a series of experiential telecourses guiding participants through a process of spiritual awakening into an "evolutionary relationship to life."

Craig's work at Integral Enlightenment integrates decades of intensive spiritual practice with insights gleaned during his eight years as Senior Editor of the award-winning What Is Enlightenment? magazine. For 13 years, he participated in the dynamic living “laboratory of evolution” known as EnlightenNext, ultimately playing a key role in the leadership of this thriving international spiritual community. In his current work, he is helping to articulate an authentic “evolutionary mysticism”—an “integral enlightenment” which illuminates the vital relationship between individual transformation and collective evolution.

Craig is a founding member of Ken Wilber's Integral Institute, a member of the Esalen Center for Theory and Research, and was a participant in the Synthesis Dialogues, a 35-person interdisciplinary think tank presided over by HH the Dalai Lama. His celebrated conversations with other luminaries are regularly heard by New Dimensions Radio’s seven million listeners, and form the basis of the acclaimed webinar series, “The Great Integral Awakening: Pioneering A New Spiritual Path,” and "Awakening the Impulse to Evolve: The Birth of Evolutionary Spirituality." A contributor to Shift magazine and co-author of IONS’ 2008 Shift Report, he is also co-writer of the forthcoming documentary film THE SHIFT. Craig lives with his wife, Claire Zammit, in Berkeley, California. WWW.INTEGRALENLIGHTENMENT.COM
