The evolve salons are biotopes of the possible in a time of unreasonable demands.

YOU ARE INVITED to participate in an enlivening inquiry into the pressing (and daunting) questions of our times in our live, online evolve Salon.

The Salon will meet the third Thursday of each month, beginning at 19:00 Central Europe Time (and lasting about 90 minutes).

What is evolve Magazine?

evolve is a German-language quarterly print magazine that explores the frontier of consciousness and culture. Known and respected in both the Integral and metamodern scenes, the magazine brings together in dialogue new and diverse views on the pages of the magazine and in live salons held in nearly 30 locations in German-speaking countries. evolve tracks culture changing movements, memes, innovations, projects, and people. The magazine seeks to open up inquiry into the root causes in human consciousness of the crises and potentials of our time.

evolve content now in English...


With the creation of the new web platform, evolve World, content from the magazine will be made available in English. Many of the interviews printed in the magazine start out in English–given that evolve seeks out the most interesting and innovative people and projects from across the globe and English is often a language they speak.

For the online English evolve Salon, you will be given PDFs or links to the original English interviews and articles (before they were translated into German). About one-third to one-half of each magazine issue begins in English. We are very happy to be able to share this provocative and inspiring material with you.
We kick off our next evolve salon season with a new issue. For Spring we have a topic that’s all about Landmarks of a Culture of Consciousness.

It is easy to wish for a new culture in which awareness and depth play a leading role. But how do we achieve such a culture? Our sense of wholeness plays an essential role when we try to leave the fragmentation of our time behind us. It is not without reason that many spiritual activists today speak of our ability to interbeing. Interbeing means a new aliveness in inseparability for which there are no blueprints yet.

This is precisely why our imagination is particularly in demand here. What can our life on this planet look like if we bring powerful images of togetherness into the world?

Topic: Landmarks (Wegmarken)

How can a new culture of consciousness develop? We have been exploring this question with evolve magazine for ten years now. And we have compiled some milestones in our anniversary issue. How can sustainable activism take shape? What role does our ability to imagine play in this? How can our relationship with the sacred guide us? And how can we walk this path towards new forms of interbeing together and in dialog? These are big questions that we would like to explore together with you in the upcoming evolve Salons.

Salon May 16
The last articles from our issue Landmarks open the horizon by some heart-opening insights. Joanna Macy, the pioneer of deep ecology, has worked for decades on a cultural shift. Her experience: "We belong to each other. We ache for a sense of solidarity and wholeness." In her work she discovered many ways that can lead maybe to a new human identity that overcomes separation. In the eyes of Irish poet David Whyte, it is precisely dialog that can bring us closer together again. For him, it is clear: "No one survives a real dialog." What he means by that is: If we really give ourselves to our shared presence, the unexpected becomes possible. How can we walk together this path?

Your Salon Hosts...

We are lucky to have two hosts for these online virtual salons: Diana Spiegel and Denise Mueller. Both are located in the US–Diana in Ohio and Denise in California.

They are not there to provide answers or to dictate how to engage together. They do, however, have experience in deepening dialogue and bringing the space between us alive with synergy.

Die Salons für die aktuelle Ausgabe 41

Tod, Leben und Transformation

Unsere Zeit ist auch eine Zeit des Sterbens. Kriege und Konflikte vernichten menschliches Leben. Lebewesen und Ökosysteme gehen verloren oder werden bedroht. Eine Lebensweise, in der wir uns eingerichtet haben, bricht zusammen. Können wir dieses Sterben spüren? Sind wir so mutig? Und finden wir darin Zeichen der Transformation, die unausdenkbare Neugeburt?

Über all die Fragen, die sich daraus ergeben, möchten wir bei den evolve Salons in den Dialog kommen. Wir freuen uns auf anregende Gespräche mit euch! Bitte meldet euch formlos per E-Mail bei den jeweiligen Gastgebenden an.

Kein Salon bei euch dir der Nähe? Bei Interesse, können wir dich dabei unterstützen einen Salon in deiner Region zu gründen.

Die Salon finden von Februar bis April statt.
