Global Spirituality Event and Ken Wilber (The Author Rob Bell Loves!)
So how does a supposed Christian minister of the Gospel [Rob Bell] end up promoting someone [Ken Wilbur] teaching doctrines of demons? (All spiritual paths lead to your highest god-self.) How is it that Bell is the darling of evangelical Christians when he loves the work of Ken Wilber?
Good questions. And how is it that Dr. Stephan Joubert and Dr. Guillaume Smit will not listen to our warnings against Rob Bell’s teachings?
Mr. Wilber is busy promoting his new global spirituality. Today I received a promotion for his Integral Spiritual Experience event where a new, globally integrated religion is being promoted. You can see that Contemplative Spirituality is a big part of this. (See the photo of Brother David Steindl-Rast as one of the speakers.) Rob Bell, in his book, Velvet Elvis, heartily recommends that readers take three months to read Wilber’s book, A Theory of Everything. (Velvet Elvis, Page 192, Endnote 143) Well, here is what Rob Bell’s author is teaching:
Hundreds of thousands of people around the globe have been touched and inspired by the vision of Integral Spirituality, a spiritual path that can integrate the wisdom and practices of every major spiritual tradition, east and west, with the best of science, philosophy, and psychology, bringing them together in a sophisticated world spiritual philosophy.
Occurring each year over the New Year’s holiday, Integral Spiritual Experience kicks off December 30, 2009 – January 3, 2010 with “The Personal Spiritual Journey – Your Unique Self,” which will guide you through a personal exploration of your unique life and purpose at this particular time in history. As the foundation of the 5-year journey, Year 1 will explore the Unique Self through an integrated prism of perspectives including Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, New Spirituality, Integral Psychology and others. We will then help you identify the practices you need to uncover your deepest and truest Self.
