Evolutionary Enlightenment is a spiritual term used to marry mystical teachings about Enlightenment from the Eastern wisdom traditions with a Western scientific understanding of cosmic and cultural evolution.

In contemporary culture, it is associated with the work of Andrew Cohen, founder of EnlightenNext, and Ken Wilber, the leading figure in the Integral movement.
