Relationship as a Path

How do your relationships compare to your other practices?
What’s possible when we welcome the challenges that arise in our partnership as opportunities for growth?

In this conversation with Jayson Gaddis, we discuss the ways in which we can treat our relationships similarly to how we hold our personal development and spiritual practices. Since our relationships are so much a part of our daily life (what else is there?), the more we give attention to them, the more we can grow, find peace, and be of greater service to the world.

If you enjoy this recording, I recommend you check-out the video of Jayson’s recent presentation at the Integral Center here.

The Power of Practice

I recently had a great conversation about practice with my friend and Integral mentor, Terry Patten. Terry was part of the core team at the Integral Institute that developed Integral Life Practice, which distills ancient and modern practices into an intelligent contemporary transformational lifestyle. He co-authored a book on the subject as well as leading week-long ILP workshops for years. In this conversation Terry and I discuss what practice is, how we can develop a lifestyle of practice, and the power of choosing to enact our practice even in simple conversations–as Terry demonstrates on the call. We then discuss the challenges and rewards of developing a community committed to practice and how important that is these days.
Terry will also be joining us for our New Years gathering, Scenius (think Scene plus Genius), and if you want to learn more about Terry’s work, I highly recommend hearing his recording on the 5 Spiritual Myths that Sabotage Your Conscious Evolution.

You Are Not Alone

A Truly Integral Space for a Community that Keeps Waking-Up and Growing-Up in Service of a Better World

Our community was started by people who care deeply about connection and relationship–as a path to better lives, and ultimately to inspiring a healthier world. It’s a radically simple view: more loving people create more loving families and neighbors, which creates more loving communities, more loving cities, and ultimately a more loving world. It may sound simple, but like most essential truths it’s not as easy as it sounds and relationship is the place where our least loving and aware tendencies get highlighted *fast*.

Why We Need Your Help

We were one and a half years into our lease when we got hit hard by the epic Colorado floods in September. The pipes in our building backed up and filled our first level (7000 square feet, half of our entire space) with toxic water and sewage. The water destroyed all the flooring, carpeting, furnishings, plumbing, boiler and other property on that level. To make things more complicated, our insurance policies denied us without even looking and forced us into a back and forth battle with no end in sight.

Celebrate the New Year with iCommunity

Screen Shot 2013-10-31 at 12.25.01 PM

 4 Days of Integral Practice & Play

The Integral Center presents:
Scenius ~ The More Integral the Community…
the More Genius for the World

Join us in Integral Practice & Play for four days in the Rockies, in the company of an international blend of do-gooders, intimacy geeks, Integral nerds, a few Burning Man gypsies & all manner of community leaders!

Conscious Community =
1. The Most Potent Catalyst for Evolution OR
2. A Hugely Expensive/Distracting Drama Fest
…It all depends on how fiercely we hold Integral standards and practice them together.

We’re proud of our center in Boulder transmitting the Integral Meme to broader and broader audiences, and though we took a *major* hit this Fall as a flood destroyed half of our building and supplies, our community is emerging stronger than ever.

If you spend the New Years with us, you’ll be exploring Integral approaches to:

    • Balancing Being & Becoming, Autonomy & Communion
    • Metabolizing Conflicts into Opportunities
    • Power & Exclusivity (Integral Cliches)
    • Sexuality & Romantic Relationships
    • Generational Richness – Parenting, Eldership & Rites of Passage
    • Blending virtues of discipline & loyalty with enjoying our lives together
    • Walking a path of the ancestors while being uniquely yourself 

*Brian Eno coined the word “Scenius” to capture an extreme creativity that groups, places, or ‘scenes’ can sometimes manifest. In places like Boulder, the Integral scenius continues to develop…and it’s time again to gather the tribes.

Throughout history, small groups brought together for a common purpose generate a collective magic inclusive of each individual’s contribution, yet far greater than the sum of individual contributions they possibly could’ve created: Building 20 at MIT, Camp 4 at Yosemite, the Inklings at Oxford, Burning Man. Ken Wilber reminds us of the significant role that Salons in Europe played in the emergence of the Western enlightenment. Today intentional communities worldwide come together around spiritual, social or ecological values.

Perhaps you consider yourself part of an emerging Integral Scenius. Perhaps you’re simply passionate about fostering more loving and real community on our planet. In either case, please get yourself to the Integral Center in Boulder for this New Year’s 2014.

    • Experience our favorite interpersonal practices for fostering deep in-the-moment authenticity

    • Meet fellow integral practitioners, facilitators, and community builders from around the world

    • Harness the power of the collective through a guided series of experiences together

    • Celebrate another year of kosmic evolution

The Integral Worldview

  • Integral begins with a recognition that we are evolving through growth stages in individual consciousness and culture.
  • Each of these stages has something important to offer: a dignity, insight and capacity, which shines most brightly when combined, or integrated, with the dignity, insights and capacities of other stages.
  • This integration creates more than the sum if its parts, giving rise to new emergent capabilities.
  • These capabilities include the ability to harmonize previously conflicting perspectives and worldviews and to see and enact solutions that have not been seen or tried before.

The Integral worldview is an emerging public philosophical agreement, and a new way of being human. Integral is used by individuals who can see and appreciate all other worldviews. These people find ways to take the best of these views and harmonize them into coherent social structures that point the way to what is worth doing in fields as diverse as religion, politics, business and personal transformation. Integralists are keen on the development of strategies to effect change in people, institutions and culture. Integral adherents believe that an emerging combination of theory and skillful means will have far- ranging effects similar to those experienced by humankind through the philosophy of the western enlightenment, which emerged as pubic philosophical agreement about 300 years ago. The Enlightenment provided an intellectual foundation which changed the world forever, out of which arose fundamental pillars of our current world including Democracy, individual rights, liberal arts education, religious freedoms, and free enterprise just to name a few. Integralists believe that Integral philosophy, theory and practice is poised to create a similar shift in the evolution of human consciousness, which will provide better solutions to many of the most pressing problems confronted by humanity today.

Some Core Values of the Integral Worldview.

  1. Supporting the ongoing evolution of all human beings.
  2. Confidence in the potential of evolutionary and developmental philosophy.
  3. Appreciation of natural growth hierarchies.
  4. Low antibodies to change and willingness to engage in the process of change.
  5. Realization that truth is fixed only at a given state and stage of human development.
  6. Harmonization of previously conflicting world views: Science and Religion, Ascending and Descending paths of Spirituality, Interior and exterior.
  7. Personal responsibility that is solution- oriented. No deconstruction without a new solution. We “criticize by creating”.
  8. The return (in their healthy forms) of parts of consciousness and culture that have been cut off, through processes like shadow work.
  9. The ability to find a functional fit for the situation, something that works- without absolutes.
  10. Metabolizing the whole spiral of developmental stages through the ability to see the entire spiral and to digest and use all the insights and tools of all ways of being human.
  11. A flex flow approach to problem solving, more than one right answer.
  12. Seeing all reality as arising in four quadrants with four primary perspectives, Subjective (individual interior) Intersubjective, (collective interior) Interobjective (collective exterior); Behavioral. Individual exterior).
  13. Useful orienting generalizations given to the world: States and Stages; the Pre-trans Fallacy; AQAL model, (quadrants, levels, lines, states and types). Level/ line pathologies, etc.
  14. Opening into the highest states and stages available- aspiring to the place beyond current conceptions of the self that is revealed in the “spiritual experience” and operation from that state and evolutionary stage.
    Practice, Practice, Practice.

A Confession About My Relationship

by Shana James of the Authentic Woman Experience (AWE)

There’s something I (Shana) want to get off my chest. After I share it I don’t know what you’ll think of me. You may trust me less. You may think I shouldn’t teach dating and relationship courses. Or you may trust me more. I really don’t know.

I’m going to take a risk because I keep finding that if I don’t risk, I live in fear of what might happen. I feel half alive. I don’t know whether others like me for who I really am.

When I risk, especially when I’m scared, I discover whether I can be more connected with people. And others share their vulnerable truths with me, which makes life so much more rich and fun!

So here it is, the confession:

My husband and I don’t have an easy relationship. We don’t have one of those relationships where we are always sweet to each other, where we agree on everything and never fight.

We are each passionate and stubborn in our own ways. We are wounded from our childhoods. We are scared to show parts of ourselves. We can be manipulative or harsh without meaning to be. We sometimes feel ashamed of our desires and lash out to protect that.

At times we’re each afraid we have to “get it right,” and then feel uninspired to get “it” at all. We have days when we feel deeply in love and days when we wonder if we’re a good match.

Phew! There it is. The truth.

A deep breath. It actually feels like a relief to let you know. I’m tired of being careful, of thinking I need to paint a picture of a perfect relationship to the world so I’ll be trusted.

I’m not perfect. Neither is my relationship. A part of me knows this is a good thing. I’m more in tune with the difficulties of love and relationship. But I still feel scared you’ll judge me. And I’m learning to be okay with that.

I haven’t chosen the easy path. My relationship is even more complex because I look under every “stone,” to move through any blocks in our intimacy. I want to stay true to myself and live fully. I want my husband to do the same.

It’s painful to watch the facade of relationship I often see couples engage in. I’ve coached couples who haven’t paused to look into each others’ eyes for a long time, who no longer appreciate each other, who don’t ask questions to evoke each other’s hearts and dreams.

I don’t write this to judge. My bar for intimacy is really high. And I’d love for yours to be too. Because then you can have love that lights you up and inspires you.

When you light yourself up from the inside and stay connected to your truth…When you uncover the wounds and shame that cause you to lash out or pull away…that’s when love is real. That’s when relationship lasts, rather than falls apart.

So, this year I don’t have empty promises. I can’t guarantee you’ll live happily ever after with the love of your life. But I do know that you, like other women who have worked with us, can call a caliber of men into your life that you may not know even exists! You can be treated with more respect and adoration by men than you ever knew was possible.

You can find men who are emotionally available, and inspire them to open up even more with you. You can have dates that rock your world. You can have men come closer, rather than walk away. You can have passionate, connected sex. You can make peace with “neediness” and create a life you love.

You can create relationships with women that are honest and profoundly supportive. You can be loved for who you truly are, by more people than you imagined being loved by.You can fall deeply in love with yourself and trust yourself!

This year I will continue to explore how to live in the most alive, in-love, authentic, passionate, undefended way. I will continue to walk through fear and shame, to where love resides. I will speak my truth more often and choose what I really want, rather than what may make me look good or be desirable.

I will be transparent, even if I think something makes me look stupid or inadequate. I will share my emotions even if I’m afraid to be seen as overly emotional or high maintenance. I will be me, even though I may no longer be wanted!

I invite you to join me. What do you want to create?
What do you want to let go of?
What parts of your humanness and imperfection do you want to celebrate?

If you want more, please join us for our first AWE intensive
in Boulder, CO: http://integralcenter.org/authentic-woman-experience/

With love and honesty,
Shana

Exquisite Organization – An Introductory Taste of Holacracy

Saturday January 12th
1:30pm – 5pm

Is your organization agile and adaptive to its environment – even as it scales? Are the roles within your organization clear, yet also continually evolving, and driven by those doing the work? Is the work aligned with your organization’s purpose, without egos getting in the way?

This workshop introduces Holacracy: a real-world tested “social technology” for structuring, governing, and running a purpose-driven, agile company. Holacracy fundamentally changes how decisions are made and how power is distributed.

Key benefits of Holacracy include:
~ Effective tactical meetings to identify and process anything in the way of getting work done into clear next-actions and target outcomes.
~ A dynamic governance process that transforms work and removes bottlenecks through clearly defined authority and expectations.
~ Organizing people around purpose, free from bureaucracy and politics.
~ This experiential introduction to Holacracy offers a fast-paced, concise taste in a single session. It also satisfies the prerequisite for attending our Practitioner Certification Training.

Learning Objectives
In this training, participants will:
~ Experience a transformative governance process that creates crystal clear roles and accountabilities even while dynamically evolving as-needed
~ Interactively explore Holacracy’s self-organizing structure and double-linking paradigm, and learn how it scales across organizations small and large
~ Experience Holacracy’s lightning-quick, action-focused Tactical Meetings
~ Connect the dots to see Holacracy’s end-to-end approach to move from aim to action, and how it grounds an abstract purpose in concrete next-actions

Steve McIntosh presents his new book: Evolution’s Purpose

On Tuesday night, October 23rd, integral philosopher Steve McIntosh will speak about his long awaited next book: Evolution’s Purpose: An Integral Interpretation of the Scientific Story of Our Origins. Evolution’s Purpose presents a fresh and compelling view of evolutionary science and philosophy, and shows how a deeper understanding of evolution itself can lead directly to a more evolved world. Without relying on spiritual authorities or unscientific theories such as “intelligent design,” Steve demonstrates how evolution’s purposeful progression reveals profound truths about the universe that are compatible with many forms of contemporary spirituality. The event will consist a 45 minute presentation followed by an audience dialogue.

Tuesday, October 23rd, 7 – 9pm
The Integral Center, Chapel Room
2805 Broadway St. Boulder, 80304

“Evolution’s Purpose is a masterpiece!. . .”
—Andrew Cohen, author of Evolutionary Enlightenment, and founder of EnlightenNext

“Steve McIntosh’s brilliant ideas are both stimulating and comforting . . .”
—Marianne Williamson, author of A Return to Love

“McIntosh is persuasive in his arguments. . . .”
—Holmes Rolston III, Ph.D winner of the 2003 Templeton prize, and author of Environmental Ethics

“Evolution’s Purpose is truly excellent, clear and convincing. . . .”
—Dr. Ervin Laszlo, Distinguished system scientist, and author of over 30 books on evolution.

“This seminal book places the Evolutionary Worldview on the “memetic map” of global culture. . . .”
—Barbara Marx Hubbard, Futurist and founder of The Foundation for Conscious Evolution

STEVE MCINTOSH J.D. is a leader in the integral philosophy movement and author of the books: Evolution’s Purpose and Integral Consciousness. He is also a co-founder of the new think tank: The Institute for Cultural Evolution. In addition to the think tank and his work in philosophy, McIntosh has had a variety of other successful careers, including founding the consumer products company Now & Zen, practicing law with one of America’s biggest firms, working as an executive with Celestial Seasonings Tea Company, and Olympic-class bicycle racing. He is a graduate of the University of Virginia Law School and the University of Southern California Business School, and now lives in Boulder, Colorado with his wife and two sons.
