In this 1.5 hour video Steve presents his latest book, The Presence of the Infinite. The video includes a 57 minute talk with slides, followed by wonderfully sophisticated questions from the Boulder audience.
Recorded at the Integral Center in Boulder, Colorado on October 22, 2015, this “book talk” has now been presented in multiple cities across the U.S. In the video Steve describes the emergence of evolutionary spirituality and how it can expand our grasp on spiritual experience—especially the spiritual experience of the beautiful, the true, and the good. He then goes on to discuss “the spiritual teachings of evolution” and how these teachings can enhance our spiritual practices and deepen our experience of ultimate reality. During the audience discussion in the second half of the video, Steve addresses questions on truth, providence, the nature of consciousness, the potential pathologies of the evolutionary perspective, and others.
Scroll down for short excerpt videos including: the main “take away” from the talk (30 seconds), an evolutionary view of ultimate reality (7:40), evolutionary spirituality’s emerging method for evolving consciousness (5:45), personal versus universal truth (3:30), and the integration of love and nonduality (5:33).
Here’s a sample of what people are saying about the video:
“This was fantastic and beautiful. I love the way Steve organized the talk. I was deeply touched by his answer to the question about: ‘all things happening because they are supposed to.’ I have always resisted that sentiment. His response was articulate and passionate.”

“I have always known that a new spirituality was imminent … Listening to Steve speak is helping me remember why I care so deeply about this and why.”
