Consciousness in Evolution, a book by Wilfried Ehrmann, combines insights into the history of mankind with perspectives of personal development and integral healing. The book was first published in German by J. Kamphausen Verlag and is now available in English for the first time. Using a framework of seven stages of development, the author leads readers through the story of mankind and simultaneously through their own inner worlds. The seven stages are: Belonging, Emancipation, Guidance, Performance, Self-inquiry, Interconnectedness, and Universality. Both urges from inside and challenges from outside have shaped humans into who they are today. But many people do not consider that every step of inner development is connected to the collective development of mankind. From the earliest days of childhood up to adult maturity, individual growth is affected by universal needs, fears, hopes, values and ideals. These imprints can stimulate as well as impede personal and collective progress.
When we become aware of crucial patterns and dynamics, new possibilities for action in our daily lives open up. With the help of effective practical exercises, this inspiring and well-researched book helps readers to detect inner conflicts and overcome them. It helps readers heal wounds from past experiences, and shows how one’s own potential can be completely opened.
The model of the evolution of consciousness described in Consciousness in Evolution is derived from the work of Cowan and Beck and adapted and deepened by Ehrmann. It fits with the integral philosophy of Ken Wilber.
