I started a thread on Gebser at the old pod at this link. I also saved the thread as was thinking of starting a new thread on Gebser here linking to the Google docs where its stored. If you want to start the thread please do and I'll provide the new link.

Welcome to the group, Shaman Sun! Nice to see you here.

Best wishes,

What paths lie ahead for religion and spirituality in the 21st Century? How might the insights of modernity and post-modernity impact and inform humanity's ancient wisdom traditions? How are we to enact, together, new spiritual visions – independently, or within our respective traditions – that can respond adequately to the challenges of our times?

This group is for anyone interested in exploring these questions and tracing out the horizons of an integral post-metaphysical spirituality.
