Weekly Update for 4/26/17

April 26, 2017

Greetings Community,

I’m deep in the question of how to give the world what I have to give. What I want to give is the means to work together to create an economy where everyone can thrive. I have a theory of how to do this, the question is where to start applying it. I’ll be diving into this theory and discussion some options for getting started at my talk next Wednesday. I hope you can join me!

Real World Integral Consulting

Charles Crutchfield

In this session from the Relational Leadership Summit, veteran Integral consultant Charles Crutchfield, discusses stories from 15 years applying Integral Theory in the world of business and the lessons learned about meeting clients where they are, seeing their perspectives, and (often in homeopathic doses) teaching a little theory along the way.

Alex & Alyson Grey – Why Visionary Art Matters

Sunday May 7th 6:00am-9:00pm in the Chapel

The worldwide underground movement of visionary art is evolving the cultural body through icons of interconnectedness. Appearing at psychedelic music festivals, tents full of visionary art remind pilgrims of their own inner journeys and validates sacred yet outlawed states of consciousness. This is just the latest wave of expression to come from humanities ancient connection with sacramental plants and chemicals.

Visionary mystical experiences are humanity’s most direct contact with God and are the creative source of all sacred art and wisdom traditions. The best currently existing technology for sharing the mystic imaginal realms is a well-crafted artistic rendering by an eye witness. Since mystic visionary artists paint the transcendental realms from observation, their work offers a growing body of evidence substantiating the divine imaginal realms and by extension, Spirit itself.

By projecting crystallized visions of spiritual illumination, Mystic Visionary Art helps engineer higher mind states in the viewer. Relevant Sacred Art activates the subtle light-body surrounding and interpenetrating our physical body. By visualizing deities and ideal forms, our subtle body is purified, uplifted and healed. The presence of Ultimate Reality absorbed through Mystic Art attracts the viewer toward their own spiritual template and Supreme Identity.

For eons, artists have created images and temples born from their mystic visions. On prehistoric cave walls and throughout Egyptian Greek, Buddhist and Hindu temples, traces of mystic artists are embedded in sacred art the world over. Unique in spiritual history, we now have instant access to the full spectrum of wisdom traditions offering an unlimited and integral approach to art & culture. Visionary art allows us to see the cosmos, ourselves and others as a reflection of the divine.

Join Alex Grey & Allyson Grey for a journey through the history of Visionary Art and get an update on the Entheon project, now in construction at CoSM.
The Grey’s are artists and co-founders of CoSM, Chapel of Sacred Mirrors, an interfaith church in the scenic Hudson Valley of New York.

The New Economy, Beyond Capitalism

Wednesday May 3rd 6:30pm-8:00pm at the Impact Hub

Part of the New Economy Seminar Series, a partnership between the Impact Hub Academy and The Integral Center with bi-weekly seminars in alternating locations. See the full lineup at http://integralcenter.org/neweconomy

Brian and Jacki have worked together to define a new economic system that shifts the underlying structures of our businesses and the paradigms in which we operate. In this talk we will discuss how capitalism as we know it is designed to maximize returns to shareholders at the expense of people and planet and how employing a combination of social and economic structures can fundamentally change that dynamic. What we propose isn’t Socialism or Communism either. We see a new paradigm emerging that takes us out of the old dichotomies and creates a completely different possibility.

Business in the new economy will be designed from the ground up to regenerate degraded ecosystems, revive debased communities, and recapitalize the middle class. We can create a just and regenerative economy now by growing and replicating existing systems that do business in revolutionary ways. Business practices such as cooperative ownership, distributed authority governance, regenerative agriculture, agile development, fair trade, open-source innovation, and micro-finance have the potential to turn the entire economy around. Come find out how you can apply these innovations to your business and life to join the New Economy.
