Ross Robertson
Senior Associate Editor, EnlightenNext magazine.

Ross Robertson is a senior associate editor of EnlightenNext magazine. Since 2003, his in-depth reporting has covered an eclectic range of topics, from studies of postmodern neo-tantra, manliness, and Gen-X cultural forms to explorations of evolutionary philosophy, consciousness studies, and critiques of popular New Age art and media. In particular, Robertson has worked to help define and articulate an emergent perspective within twenty-first century environmental thought known as “bright green.” His workshops, lectures, and roving reportage for EnlightenNext have taken him from the halls of MIT and the University of Massachusetts to the utopian streets of Burning Man and the Italian spiritual community of Damanhur. Earlier incarnations of Robertson’s professional life saw him working stints as a farmer, cabinetmaker, and environmental activist with a wide variety of nonprofit organizations, including Planet Drum Foundation and the Natural Resources Defense Council. He is a graduate of Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, and of Naropa University’s Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics.
