Event Details

Aligned Center teacher Jeff Carreria has a new book coming out this October and you’re invited to his online launch!


When I speak to people — including Americans — about American philosophy, people often look back at me somewhat bewildered. Americans are not known for their philosophy. And yet the truth is that we do have one, and it contains a magnificent vision of a universe that grows as one dynamically interconnected whole. We are not separate from the universe any more than our mouths are separate from our faces. We grew out of the universe like a leaf grows out of a tree. – Jeff Carreira

Upon attending a conference focused on the work of Ralph Waldo Emerson in 2004, Jeff became fascinated with this complex literary figure—his ideas, his societal outlook, and his extraordinary spiritual awakening. For the next five years, Jeff began posting weekly in his blog, Philosophy is Not a Luxury, detailing the profound insights and concepts of both Emerson as well as his Transcendentalist contemporaries. In his new book, American Awakening: Evolutionary Spirituality, Duality, & Free Thinking in the Tradition of American Philosophy, Jeff recounts the spiritual journeys of great American thinkers

In American Awakening, Jeff chronicles of the rich wisdom from mid 19th century Transcendentalism through the rise of Pragmatism and even the late 20th century ideas of Richard Rorty. This book will help you discover a radical understanding of reality based in a deep recognition of the inherent unity of mind and matter. You will see how many of the notions of contemporary alternative spirituality were developed through a detailed adventure from venerated philosophical pioneers. Jeff captures the seldom recognized tradition of American spiritual enlightenment through individuals who revel in the great mystery of life. Celebrate this exciting book launch with us on October 4th where you will hear Jeff read several excerpts and answer any questions!

With a focus on the Lower Right Quadrant, this event embraces conscious awareness and transformation through a cross-historical, global view.
