Publisher's Summary

Is it possible to develop an all-inclusive vision of God that can satisfy scientists, philosophers, and priests at the same time, one that can help you deepen your own connection to the divine? It is, teaches best-selling author Ken Wilber, if you are able to understand the "1-2-3" of God. According to this premiere modern philosopher, the seemingly innumerable ways humans conceptualize God can actually be broken down into three basic perspectives. From this simple 1-2-3 foundation, it is then possible to understand how God has been perceived in different religions and cultures throughout history, and how you can broaden your own experience of "the ultimate" to an integral level. Join Ken Wilber to learn about:
The "I", "We", and "It" views of God: how different religions and spiritual paths tend to focus on only one of these three fundamental ways of relating to the divine

Is there really a God? Ken Wilber's direct and surprising answer

God in the AQAL model: how Wilber's integral framework can help you connect with spirit in every state and at every stage

Guided sessions for deeply experiencing each of the three aspects of God: mystical, devotional, and objective
Through his best-selling books and his work as founder and president of the Integral Institute, Ken Wilber has become one of the world's most recognized and respected pioneers of modern spirituality. With The One Two Three of God, he now brings his unique gift for lucid insight to the most essential question asked by spiritual seekers throughout history: What is the true nature of God?

Highly Recommended

This is a wonderful book and I've been blurting out what I've learnt to anyone prepared to listen for the last few days. I would recommend it to anyone who is confused about their spiritual development, not knowing where they stand or where they are heading. It's also a great book for anyone who like me sometimes feels slightly embarassed about having any religious belief at all and has to combat that uncomfortable feeling. Ken Wilber puts those feelings into perspective

Many "Ah-ha" Moments for me!

I have to disagree with a previous reviewer who saw this discussion as a rehash of Wilber's other books. Yes, it builds on his four-quadrant, multi-stage framework. But here, he adds another dimension to his work.

It would have been really confusing for most listeners if he hadn't reviewed his AQAL model in this discussion. I know I would have been lost if I hadn't read six of his other books. In fact, if you are a novice to Integral philosophy, this is not the best place to begin. "A Theory of Everything" is a good primer. Start there, but DO come back to this one!

Bottom line: Listening to this talk definitely deepened my understanding of integral spirituality! I highly recommend it.
