Welcome to Ken Wilber's
Full Spectrum Mindfulness
Full Spectrum Mindfulness is a groundbreaking new web course that combines Western approaches to Growing Up with Eastern methods of Waking Up, taught by one of the world’s greatest living philosophers of the mind, Ken Wilber.
Full Spectrum Mindfulness combines hard-hitting mindfulness practice with leading-edge discoveries in neuroscience and developmental psychology, giving you what you need to dramatically deepen your awareness and skill by awakening the eight major levels of evolution alive in you right now.
Through this course you will learn how to take a “full spectrum scan” of your total being, shining a light into some of the hardest-to-reach corners of your psyche. It will help you locate and upgrade outdated coping strategies, discover and heal trouble spots in your system, and tap into the power of mindfulness at eight levels of your life, mindset, patterns, and behavior.
What makes Full Spectrum Mindfulness different from the rest?
Simple. It gets beneath the surface.
Most other approaches to mindfulness allow you to become more conscious of whatever is happening in the moment, helping you bring more awareness to your thoughts, emotions, and surrounding environment as they arise in your consciousness. There are dozens of truly amazing mindfulness techniques out there that truly excel at this, any one of which can become an important part of your own Integral Life Practice.
However, while these traditional techniques do an excellent job of helping you become more mindful of the surface features of your moment-to-moment experience, they have a much more difficult time getting to the deep features of your consciousness — those aspects of your psyche that cannot easily be seen through contemplation or introspection alone, yet exert an enormous influence upon your perceptions, your reactions, and the way you make sense of the world.
These are the invisible structures through which you filter all of your experiences. Studied, tested, and verified across all known cultures by some of the world’s greatest psychologists, these deep structures give shape to your thoughts, add color to your emotions, and bring coherence to your identity.
Eight Powerful Mindfulness Techniques in One Elegant Teaching:
The base of the pyramid, survival mindfulness is a critical component of managing your health, enhancing your vitality, and breaking free of the stranglehold that food holds over your life.
Sexual mindfulness is the root of maintaining erotic polarity, being present with your lover and maintaining a lifetime of deep sexual connection.
Own it, wield it wisely, and learn to navigate it, because power mindfulness is a foundation of setting boundaries and knowing where you stand in this world.
Love mindfulness supercharges your deepest relationships and connections with the most important people in your life in the deepest way possible, aligning your heart with something much greater than yourself.
Achievement mindfulness aids your ability to author your own life and future, helping you learn to channel your power and focus on delivering the real-world results that move the needle in your life.
Harmony mindfulness grounds a deep sensitivity to the most pressing moral issues of a world in pain with the presence and love to act as a healing force wherever you go.
In a world of seemingly-irresolvable tensions, competing mindsets, and differing worldviews, wholeness mindfulness gives you the capability to gauge and respond to every situation with wisdom, presence, and skillful clarity.
Modern science has shown how your happiness, deep flow states, and even your life purpose are tied to awakening to and serving something bigger than yourself, which is what unity mindfulness—one of the pinnacle forms of mindfulness—is all about.
Also includes exclusive Full Body Mindfulness practices:
Changing your relationship to your food drives is the foundation of your health. Get control of the hunger drives, food addictions, and emotional eating that create chronic problems with weight and dissatisfaction with your diet.
Your body is 95% water, and the quality of your hydration contributes to the total health of your body. Move beyond your addiction to additives like caffeine, sugar, alcohol or toxins and give your body the awareness and fuel it needs to thrive.
Strength, agility and energy are the foundation of an active, movement-centered life. Not only does cross-training body practices accelerate your mindfulness, it also helps you to develop a new appreciation for the incredible beauty and strength of your own body.
Pain and pleasure drive much of our behavior, especially around food, exercise, and our daily activities. Full body mindfulness entails moving beyond a confining and narrow “comfort zone” and becoming fully aware of how much your thinking, decisions and behavior are driven by the pleasure you’re seeking or the pain you’re trying to avoid.
What You'll Learn
About Ken Wilber
Ken Wilber is a preeminent scholar of the Integral stage of human development. He is an internationally acknowledged leader, founder of Integral Institute, and co-founder of Integral Life.
If you haven’t already heard of him, Ken Wilber is one of the most important philosophers in the world today. He is the most widely translated academic writer in America, with 25 books translated into some 30 foreign languages. Ken Wilber currently lives in Denver, Colorado, and is still active as a philosopher, author, and teacher, with all of his major publications still in print.
What makes Ken Wilber especially relevant in today’s world is that he is the originator of arguably the first truly comprehensive or integrative philosophy, aptly named “Integral Theory”. As Wilber himself puts it: “I'd like to think of it as one of the first believable world philosophies...” Incorporating cultural studies, anthropology, systems theory, developmental psychology, biology, and spirituality, it has been applied in fields as diverse as ecology, sustainability, psychotherapy, psychiatry, education, business, medicine, politics, sports, and art.
"If ordinary people don't perceive that our grand ideas are working in their lives then they can't develop the higher level of consciousness, to use a term that American philosopher Ken Wilber wrote a whole book about... The problem is the world needs to be more integrated, but it requires a consciousness that's way up here, and an ability to see beyond the differences among us."
-President Bill Clinton
Wilber explains the need for an Integral Approach in the following way: In our current post-modern world, we possess an abundance of methodologies and practices belonging to a multitude of fields and knowledge traditions. What is utterly lacking however, is a coherent organization, and coordination, of all these various practices, as well as their respective data-sets. What is needed is an approach that moves beyond this indiscriminate eclectic-pluralism, to an “Integral Methodological Pluralism” — driving toward a genuine “theory of everything” that helps to enrich and deepen every field through an understanding of exactly how and where each one fits in relation to all the others. Through the Integral approach, we reveal the previously unseen possibilities for a better, more compassionate, and more sustainable future for all of us.
In short, the Integral Approach is the coherent organization, coordination, and harmonization of all of the relevant practices, methodologies, and experiences, available to human beings. Ken Wilber states “You can’t [realistically] honor various methods and fields, without showing how they fit together. That is how to make a genuine world philosophy.”
The twenty-first century literally has three choices: Aristotle, Nietzsche, or Ken Wilber.”
– Jack Crittenden Ph.D., author of Beyond Individualism
Ken Wilber is also the founder of the Integral Institute, which is the first organization fully dedicated to advancement and application of the Integral Approach in relation to contemporary global issues. It was formed in collaboration with over 200 scholars and experts, specializing in education, politics, business, medicine, psychology, spirituality, as well as, law and criminal justice. The Integral Institute is currently partnered with Fielding Graduate University.
In 2007 Wilber co-founded Integral Life, a social media-hub dedicated to sharing the integral vision with the world wide community, as well as documenting and catalyzing the progress of the integral movement.
“The most comprehensive philosophical thinker of our times.”
–Tony Schwartz, the president, founder, and CEO of The Energy Project, and the author of What Really Matters: Searching for Wisdom in America
