Ken put on a remarkable conference about the fourth turning more than a decade ago. If you wish to experience the talks, you can purchase the entire conference from his website.

The conference occurred April 4 – 6, 2014 at The Baha’i Center in Denver, Colorado.

The conference was led by Ken Wilber, Diane Musho Hamilton, Doshin Michael Nelson Roshi, and Patrick Sweeney, in addition to other authors and teachers. It was a non-sectarian summit uniting many of the leading thinkers in the field.
