Alter Ego holds an annual gathering of political thinkers and doers to explore a deeper vision of progress. Alter Ego is
premised on the idea that the self as ‘given’ is an idea we need to grow out of to survive and thrive in the 21st Century.
The big idea, broadly, is that progressive politics is underachieving because it doesn’t have an adequate conception of
how to relate to features of human experience that are broadly spiritual. Progressive renewal may therefore depend
upon a better shared sense of the relationship between personal change (human development, spiritual growth) and
political and economic change.
