Dr. Krikor Andonian (KR3TURE)
What we inherited from our ancient ancestors and how we can direct our future evolution.
How did humans evolve to have such unique culture and self-aware consciousness? How has human culture been evolving over time and when in our ancestry did spirituality appear? How can the blessings that we inherited from our ancestors constrain our current and future potential? And how can we move to the next level of our potential? Together in this workshop we will go back in time and uncover the biological and cultural processes that led to the current human state of affairs and also develop the tools to aid in next major cultural shift, our Conscious Evolution.
