n this episode of Integral Justice Warrior, Diane and I are joined by our very good friend Rob McNamara, integral teacher and author of The Elegant Self, in order to take a closer look at climate change through all four quadrants.
Watch as we discuss:
Upper Left (“I”, subjective)
- Aligning our personal views and values with the unique challenges of our time
- Managing and making space for feelings of both hopelessness and hopefulness
- Cultivating more embodied and wise responses to our climate challenges
- Finding our center and grounding our efforts in timeless reality
Upper Right (“It”, objective)
- Committing yourself to real skill development
- Learning how to work with your own nervous system in order to manage feelings of anxiety and overwhelm
- Choosing a course of action that is realistic, achievable, and makes you feel like you are more directly engaging the problem
Lower Left (“We”, intersubjective)
- Developing our capacity and willingness to manage conflict and communicate across different views and values
- Overcoming polarization and finding shared reality
- Making our embedded intersubjective patterns into objects of awareness
Lower Right (“Its”, interobjective)
- Embracing new technologies and new economic models that can help leverage innovative solutions
- Understanding how the way information moves in the LR has a massive effect upon how we think, how we relate, and how we behave.
- The impacts being made by tech innovators such as Elon Musk
And be sure to join us for the next episode, where special guest Gail Hochachka will join us to discuss climate change across multiple altitudes of development. You can join the live discussion for FREE on Saturday, December 28th at 2 PM PT (5 PM ET), only on Integral Live.
