Integral Enlightenment founder 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 culture and consciousness itself. Craig’s work articulates the vital relationship between individual and collective evolution, and provides practical spiritual training and tools to facilitate it.
As the guiding force behind Integral Enlightenment, Craig offers guidance and teachings to a growing international community of thousands of students in nearly 50 countries around the world. Through his online Academy for Evolutionaries, he teaches a series of experiential virtual courses leading participants through a process of awakening into an “evolutionary relationship to life.” This educational and transformational process supports people in evolving individually and collectively, developing and optimizing themselves to make their highest contribution.
Craig’s work at Integral Enlightenment integrates decades of intensive spiritual practice and inquiry 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, under the direct guidance of its founder–ultimately playing a key role in the leadership of this thriving international spiritual community.
Craig is a founding member of Ken Wilber’s Integral Institute and a member of Deepak Chopra’s Evolutionary Leaders Forum, and was a participant in the Synthesis Dialogues, a 35-person interdisciplinary think tank presided over by His Holiness the Dalai Lama. His celebrated conversations with other luminaries 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.” Craig lives with his wife, Claire, in Fairfax, California.
