The world needs beings that can see the bigger picture, and beings that can take compassionate action, to help evolve culture as a whole. Fortunately, the pathway to cultivating Great Compassion and bringing its fruits into the world has been elucidated by the teachers that have come before us. Join Rev. Bu Nan Brown as we take a guided tour through the Embodied Heart Practices of Buddhism. In this field of practice we will explore the depth of somatic Heart practice, and integrate it into the fields of interconnection.
Friends, it is time to return to holding a good old fashioned book in our hands by taking a bit of a break from the endless YouTube videos, podcasts and streaming TV. Instead, let's commit some time to engage in Ken Wilber's Integral teachings, which are best absorbed as a psychoactive process of reading. And there is no better way to do this than by coming into community to study, inquire, learn together and generate collective wisdom.
Jean Gebser (1905-1973) was a Swiss poet, integral philosopher and phenomenologist of consciousness. His magisterial work, The Ever-Present Origin (1949) has made significant contributions to both Ken Wilber’s Integral Theory and the field of Integral Studies at large. Gebser describes — in vivid detail — the unfoldment of human consciousness across the span of history: from our origins in the archaic to the magic, mythic, and mental, and still further onto our collective integral futures. The great breadth and depth of his knowledge of art and culture, shared through the unique prose of a man who was both a poet and a contemplative, allows for a truly radiant vision of human consciousness that shines through and past concepts of linearity and hierarchy.
In this conversation Susanne Cook-Greuter, along with Nomali Perera, will explore some of the subtle ways in which Integral and adult development psychology may be blind to their WEIRD biases. WEIRD is "Western, educated, industrialized, rich and democratic." English as the main mode of exchange is a language with a peculiar structure. It squeezes the multitude of languages and world conceptions into a single form. It colonizes our minds by what it stresses as important and what it leaves out. What if Integral became more aware of Indigenous cosmologies and sources of wisdom: They include interdependence as a foundation, reciprocity with nature and long-term historical and cyclical awareness These are not linear, progressive and do not see humans as the pinnacle of evolution.
Somatic Attachment Repair: An Integral Approach" is a series that explores the intersection of Integral Theory and somatic attachment repair. Through this series, you will learn how to integrate mind, body, and spirit in the healing process. The series will cover topics such as the role of the body in emotional healing, the integration of mindfulness practices, the use of somatic techniques, and the role of developmental stages in attachment repair.
n this series of practice-oriented writing classes, we will investigate the nature of a writer’s experience at the interface of language and consciousness. Each class will include creative and contemplative components. This class will start with the practices of the Modernists and move through a brief tour of select spiritual writing methods and schools to arrive at the possibility and practice of post-postmodern, integral writing.
Join this session to meet Bence Ganti, the leading convener and visionary behind the Integral European Conferences since 2014. Many of us are inspired to spread the integral vision. Are we doing it locally or globally? If we are thinking globally what does it really mean? Are we spreading our offerings internationally, or are we also creating forums for the global integral movement to be connected and to meet and interact with each other? If so, what are the skills we need to have, and what are the pitfalls that we should avoid?
We know that the vast majority of climate change to date has been caused by humans, and the impacts are increasing worldwide. But, what do we do now? What can we do as individuals? And how might we work generatively with the values clashes and culture wars that surround this issue. In this group session, we will sit with the tensions of climate change as an individual and collective challenge.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I join a session?
As long as you are a current member of Integral Life, simply login and visit the detail page of the session you’d like to join; you can access session detail pages on the home page or on the main Calendar (see top of the site navigation). You can quickly and easily add sessions to your personal calendar using the links provided inside each Practice Session (Google or iCal). A button to join that session will be live 15 minutes before the session begins inside the session details page. Also, be sure to set your time zone in your account settings so that you always see each session’s start time in your local time.
How are sessions organised? Do I need a camera and a microphone?
Practice Sessions are designed to be safe, confidential containers for practice and discussion led by Practice Leaders and amongst other members. Having your camera on and your microphone working is an important part of creating the right experience for everyone, though it may not be strictly mandatory in every case (it is left to the Practice Leader’s discretion).
Why don’t you record / make any of the session recordings public?
This format of ILP is designed to be a live, confidential container for practice with other people. Members rely on this policy to feel secure they can show up fully.
Can I participate in some practice if I missed the previous sessions?
Yes! All Practice Sessions are available to all members at all times.
Should I participate in the same practice session more than once?
Yes! Building new mental, emotional and behavioral habits takes time and repetition, so we highly encourage you to attend as many of the same Practice Sessions as you can until you feel like you’ve built the skills and the transformation within you has occurred.
Are there any guidelines or rules I should know before joining any of the sessions?
Over the years of our own practice we have collected a set of guiding principles that can help you get the most of the live sessions (click the image below):
What happens after my $1 trial expires?
You will be charged at the regular monthly membership rate. You can cancel or switch your membership at any time.
Can you organise more sessions for people outside of US/Europe timezones?
We are trying to schedule sessions to meet the needs of as many people as possible, but even in the United States, where a lot of our members reside, we have to cut back on Practice Sessions that are not well-attended. So we’re balancing a diversity of topics and times with the need to make sure each is well-attended enough to make the entire offering sustainable. We have consciously designed ILP’s timing to try to make some sessions available at convenient times from East Asia to London to Sydney.
