Craig Hamilton: Integral Enlightenment

Craig Hamilton

One of the things I plan to do throughout this year and next (assuming I survive cancer) is interview and write blog posts about people that I consider to be Big Integrity leaders, or significant evolutionaries. A couple of months ago I introduced Billy Grassie. Today I'm writing about a dear friend and Great Story colleague, Craig Hamilton, founder of Integral Enlightenment.

I've known Craig for 6 years, since he was Senior Editor of What is Enlightenment? (now EnlightenNext) magazine. As I began writing Thank God for Evolution in the fall of 2006, I was led to start a men's STAR cluster, or deep integrity group (as I discuss in Chapter 10 of TGFE). I invited ten of the most amazing male evolutionary leaders I knew onto a conference call and to my amazement almost all of them expressed a strong interest. Given everyone's schedules, it was rare that we were all on the phone at the same time. But Craig was one of the 6-8 guys who met via conference call once a month for a year.

In addition to being a gifted writer and spiritual teacher, Craig is also a fabulous coach. One of the greatest blessings as I was working on my book, given the fact that I only had two months on Prouts Neck (the coast of Maine) in order to write the bulk of it, was Craig volunteering to coach me through the process. His assistance in keeping me on-track and productive was invaluable.

Over the course of the next two weeks (October 2009) Craig is launching an online "Academy for Evolutionaries" and beginning a 9-week teleclass on Awakening to an Evolutionary Relationship to Life. Knowing him as a man of deepest integrity and passion for life and evolutionary emergence, I highly recommend Craig's teleseminar. I also suggest browsing his website. You'll find lots of good stuff there.
