Wilber outlines these tenets in his book Sex, Ecology, Spirituality (Shambhala, 1995), and he describes them as “patterns of existence” and “tendencies of evolution.”

On this webcast, we will look into the first group of tenets, which are the following:

Wilber presents and discusses the Twenty Tenets in his magnum opus, Sex, Ecology, Spirituality, and also in A Brief History of Everything. The tenets describe reality—both interior and exterior—as composed entirely of “holons”—entities that are always wholes, and always part of a larger whole.

These complementary approaches are a match made in evolutionary heaven!
