THE FORUM

The International Forum on the Evolution of Consciousness is an annual event that brings together visionaries from around the world to share inspiring discoveries, emergent paradigms and new perspectives that catalyze evolution in our awareness and transform culture.

Today we face global issues and contradictory demands, which combined with a growing complexity and ever increasing speed of change, make us feel individually and collectively powerless to cope with the challenges of the 21st century.

Instead of giving in to cynicism, depression or egocentric self concern, it’s important to realize that as Einstein suggested, we will only find new solutions by changing our way of thinking and seeing, developing broader and more inclusive perspectives. This is the evolution of consciousness!

Culture can be defined as the sum of our shared values and ideas. Thus, when our perspectives and values change, our culture, our civilization and the world we know, also evolves.

We become, as Gandhi said, “the change we wish to see in the world”.

By deeply internalizing this fact, we cease to feel victimized by our circumstances and become creative contributors of the future! This changes everything…

This Forum is for anyone who is searching for positivity and anyone who wants to understand the forces that govern evolution in order to innovate and be part of the solution.

These are “Evolutionaries”. (see the Declaration of the Evolutionary« )

The Forum will be a unique opportunity to connect with international pioneers and visionaries in France, in the fields of philosophy, sociology, education, science and spirituality. They will share an extraordinary cultural potential of the future, which they are already experiencing now. This is an opportunity to experience an expanded cultural consciousness with people like you who aspire to consciously co-create the future.

Forum 2016

After the Big Bang that gave birth to the creation of the universe,
then the begining of life and finally the emergence of intelligence,
are we living a 4th big bang ?

Are Love and Consciousness the starting point ?

And towards which destination ?

This is what we want to discover thanks to pioneers and inspiring leaders in collective intelligence workshops with all participants.

Have you ever tried to look beyond the daily life to explore the hidden sense of reality, to find an answer to identity and sense questions which are fascinating humanity since the beginning and to live an upright life, free from fears and desires ?

Have you ever questioned your destiny, your place in the Universe, your role in the Evolutionary process ?

Do you know the secrets of the Universe, its source, its history and its direction ?

In the initial Big Bang, matter and energy came out of nothing, then out of a dead universe life emerged and once, the living universe has become self-conscious thanks to human auto-reflexive capacity for consciousness. Three mysterious quantum leaps that are the landmarks of an infinite path whose direction now depends on us.

So what is the next step for evolution? Are we the cells of a next ,overwhelming and compelling quantum leap ? How to be part of, how to initiate the fourth Big Bang?

This 5th edition of the Forum will be an opportunity not only to discover how the multi-millennia notions of love, consciousness or enlightenment, are part of the great cosmic fresco of Evolution, but, above all, how to give rise and live an unprecedented emergence we know nothing about.

Forum 2015

After having established in 2012 the indispensability of the evolution of consciousness as the key to our future, after having reminded in 2013 that we share the responsibility to co-create the future consciously and, in 2014, having studied together the science of  the evolution of Consciousness, we propose for the 4th edition of the International Forum for the evolution of consciousness to share the experience of these evolutionary who devote their lives to embody their vision and realize their utopias.

According to a tradition that is traced to Plato’s Republic, utopia is an ideal society, a quasi-fictional place of happiness and harmony. But can this place exist without inner transformation? Are we still able to believe and, even better, are we able to realize our dreams, to fulfill our destiny and to co-evolve Consciousness and Culture?

To deepen these issues, we will listen to the testimonies of men and women who dedicate their lives to build their utopias, and will share their discoveries, their joys but also their difficulties.

Then we will travel beyond the known, with the help of the pioneers of the evolution of consciousness and 500 participants of the Forum, to explore the source of our ideals, be aware of the obstacles that deviate us and find out how to contribute to the great project of Human Evolution.

Forum 2014

The first two editions of the International Forum for the evolution of Consciousness have posed this evolution as the essential character to our future and defined as an evolutionary someone who sees the potential of the present, deeply believes in the future and feels himself or herself personally responsible for it. The evolutionary workshops of the Forum 2013 had led to experience a collective potential but the Forum 2014 aims to help us understand how to evolve and live an evolutionary daily life.

Because experience is not enough. Whether it is meditation, collective intelligence or psycho-spiritual contemplation, it is necessary to interpret these experiences to give them meaning, to understand and integrate them in order to embody new perspectives and more inclusive values able to bring out a new culture and a better future.

For this, we’ll invite this year researchers of Consciousness – philosophers, scientists and mystics – to help us better understand the fundamentals of Consciousness , its evolution in time and culture, and also, share techniques or practices that allow us to grow it in us, individually and collectively.

Forum 2013

To be an Evolutionary is to understand that our future is not written, that we are free from the past and that we can forge our destiny and influence history with our individual and collective choices.

What is our true relationship to evolution, to our future and to life? Are we deeply convinced that life is positive? Can our future flourish despite our daily burden of challenges and bad news?

The 2013 Forum will provide answers and help us understand how the evolution of consciousness can liberate us from the cynicism that often defines our western culture and emerge the potential that lies within us.

Thanks to a creative and participative format, the help of evolutionary leaders in the fields of ecology, sociology and spirituality, together we will discover how to evolve in consciousness and develop the confidence to face the big issues of our time.

Speakers : Pierre Rabhi, Jean-Louis Servan-Schreiber, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Mary Adams, Antonella Verdiani, Gopal Krishnamurthy, Cyril Dion.

Forum 2012

Today we face global issues and contradictory demands, which combined with a growing complexity and ever increasing speed of change, make us feel individually and collectively powerless to cope with the challenges of the 21st century. Instead of giving in to cynicism, depression or egocentric self concern, it is important to realize that as Einstein suggested, we will only find new solutions by changing our way of thinking and seeing, and developing broader and more inclusive perspectives. This is what the evolution of consciousness means.
