Time is running out in 2017 to help ProgressiveChristianity.org. We are sustained by donations averaging about $25. If everyone reading this right now gave just $15, we would reach our goal of $60,000 by the end of the year. We are a small non-profit with a very small staff trying to do big things in this world. We keep our site free of external ads so that you can trust and rely on what you see and experience here.

Most of what we offer, we offer for free. And that includes thousands of articles, books, liturgy and community resources, music, reviews, curricula, and a thriving and growing international network of people like you searching and building community, all with a focus on spiritual practice, sacred community and positive social transformation.

ProgressiveChristianity.org is a global portal for hundreds of dedicated volunteer authors that simply want the movement to grow. For the same amount one spends on coffee each month, you can help sustain an organization dedicated to spreading the word of a compassionate and informed Christianity. Please help us keep ProgressiveChristianity.org online and growing. Thank you.

Crazy Wisdom

 
Building around the revolutionary work of Harvard psychologists Robert Kegan and Lisa Lahey called Immunity to Change, Tom has designed a process for participants in small groups to develop a new, expansive awareness. Using this process, individuals and eventually communities, are able to make important changes while developing the greater mental and emotional complexity required in today’s world. Tom makes the audacious claim here that faith communities are uniquely situated to lead the evolution of human consciousness to help create a more just, caring and sustainable world. Crazy Wisdom is dedicated to answering how we just might go about doing that.

About the Author Tom Thresher

 
Tom has just completed his fourth career: his first was as an economics professor, then an artist/craftsman, and most recently pastor of an integral Christian church. Now an unintentional author, he has written four books with a fifth in the works. His focus is on the evolution of human consciousness: developing practical tools and cultural stories that nurture expanding perspectives. His work is grounded in eight years of transformational practice during his 20’s, a PhD in Education and 20 years studying Integral Theory. Tom’s latest book, Crazy Wisdom: Tools for Evolving Consciousness, reflects 12 years experience leading individuals through deep personal change in a faith setting. Beginning with the Immunity to Change process developed by Harvard psychologists Robert Kegan and Lisa Lahey, Tom expands their work for the unique opportunities of the faith setting.
