Self as Instrument ~ Video

Authenticity as a practice has limitations and blindspots. After all, it is only one perspective and one practice. Rob McNamara and Maria Bailey offer a beautiful critique of relational practice and illuminate some of the deeper currents that can help integrate and guide the application of Relational Leadership.

For a full weekend of relational skill building join us for Aletheia January 20th-22nd!

Contact Improvisation

Every Other Thursday 7pm-10pm in the Studio

Contact Improvisation is an improvisational partner dance art form based on the principles of momentum, shared weight, and following a shared point of contact. In this class we will explore some fundamental skills of falling, rolling, counterbalance, and attentiveness to our partners and environment. The class will lead into a contact improvisation jam: an open space in which we can practice and witness these principles and skills, exploring the form of contact improvisation. In the class, I will offer concepts and techniques with which to enter the jam space. You are welcome to join in and dance at the jam even if you do not attend the class.

Class 7:30-8:30pm Jam 8:30-10pm
Free for Integral Center members/ $10 donation

Margo Ende, a life long dancer, began exploring contact improvisation in 1988. Margo has had the great honor to have studied, danced, jammed, collaborated, and performed with incredible innovators in dance improvisation from around the globe. Margo’s many years of enriching research and experience inspire and inform her approach to teaching and dancing.

Men’s Group

12 Thursdays 7pm-9pm Starting January 26th in the Red Room

To the men out there…

We are excited to bring another round of this 12 week men’s group format to the Integral Center. After a fantastic maiden voyage last fall we are super keen to drop in with a fresh group and take this journey again. If you’ve been wanting to start your own journey into the rich world of men’s work or have already started down this path, this could be exactly what you need. If this is you, we’d love to have you on board. For more info, please reach out to Bryan (blaursen@gmail.com) or David (david@davidlorraine.com)

For one hundred thousand years, men have been sitting together. Around the fire after a successful hunt, after vanquishing foes on the field of battle, to celebrate initiation into manhood, to hear the stories of old… Sitting together and sharing the experience of being a man.

We don’t do that any more.
Our culture is missing something because we don’t,
and we want to change that.

It wasn’t so long ago that we did this… we sat with our brothers, our fathers, our elders, and tapped from a wisdom greater than ourselves. We knew we had each other backs. We supported each other in times of strife and challenged each other to be better men.

If this strikes a chord in you, join 8 other men for this 12 week exploration and journey into themes and challenges of the modern man and experience the magic that can happen when men get real with each other.

From: 7:00 – 9:30PM Thursday nights starting January 26th through April 13th
Cost: $195 for IC Members, $350 for non-members
Where: The Integral Center, Boulder CO in the Red Room
Led by Bryan Laursen and David Lorraine, with special guest Integral Center Course Leaders
