December 19, 2023 at 10:00 am - 11:15 am PST

This event starts in:

This Integral Life Experience is only available to the supporting members

Theme for the next two weeks: Leo Tolstoy and his famous short story, “The Death of Ivan Illych.” Please join us, even if you haven’t read the story.

Join this session to explore how Integral and integrative perspectives shows up in literature throughout history. We will explore the mapping of Integral Theory onto the art form of the written (and spoken) word–something that Ken Wilber proposed long ago. Roberta, your host, will bring different excerpts/prose/poems/ideas for different session, and you are welcome to join even if you may not know those themes.
