Call to Wisdom
While the human ability to think and reason have certainly propelled human evolution forward, today more than 200 years after “the age of enlightenment” we find ourselves asking if knowledge and thinking are enough to really grasp the true meaning of existence? Or is there something more?
The ancient Greeks believed there was another dimension and they called it Sophia, wisdom, and believed it was the ultimate good. In Eastern traditions, wisdom is often synonymous with the Truth, the true nature of existence, available to those who can see beyond the ever- changing.
"The Call to Wisdom" examines what wisdom really is, how it is recognized, and why our survival today, as a species and a planet may depend on it. "The Call to Wisdom" features two authors and teachers: Jean Shinoda Bolen, an author, Jungian analyst, and activist; and Roger Walsh, a professor of psychology, philosophy, and anthropology. Bolen and Walsh come together for the first time to discuss this rich topic and address some rather urgent questions which face the human race such as: Are we now as a species, headed for wisdom or catastrophy?
