Weekly Update for 5/11/17

May 11, 2017

Greetings Community,

You may have noticed that Game Nights are not on the schedule any more. We plan to keep having them ad-hoc as people in the community want to lead them, but not do it unless there is genuine interest. Let Jason Digges jaydigges@integralcenter.org know if you want to lead a Game Night in the future. We do have several people in the community coming together to do Contemplative Dance Practice & Authentic Movement in the Studio every Thursday. Margo Ende, Steven Morris, Maggie Kelly, and Jovahna Pena are some of the leaders and others can lead as well. Contact Margo or come on Thursday if you’re interested.

In This Issue:

  • Jonathan Bender and Robert MacNaughton recorded a conversation about Authenticity in Performance.
  • Sofia Diaz and Erin Keeley will be teaching a free Hanuman Pre-Festival Class on Sunday May 21st.
  • The next New Economy Seminar is at The Integral Center with Bob Dunham on Wednesday May 17th.

There’s a lot of great events so look at our online calendar for more info and any last minute changes.


In Community,
Jacki Saorsail
Membership Coordinator, Building Manager, etc.

Is Authenticity a Performance?

 Let’s break-down what people mean when they say authentic. What does it mean to just be yourself? Are we referring to presence? Which self are we just trying to be?

Seasoned performance teacher Jonathan Bender helps us sort all of this out in this 10min conversation. Here’s a hint: focus on expanding your range of self-expression instead of being more authentic. Listen to the recording here.


Jonathan is bringing his flagship 3-day training, The Performance of Your Life, to the Integral Center in Boulder, June 2-4th. There’s an early registration discount if you register soon, and an additional $100 off if you use the discount code aliveness. Learn more here.

Hanuman Pre-Festival Community Class

Sunday May 21st 8:30am – 10:30am in the Chapel

Join Sofia Diaz and Erin Keeley in this FREE two hour Hanuman Festival inspired community class.

Taking Our Practice Off the Mat: ‘Hanuman-ing’ ‘mad-monkey-mind’ into True Human Devotional Regard

Elational Asana practice brought into community, brought into the relational/devotional centers of our bodies. Walking tall, smiling big with the whole front of the body, empowering the feeling dimension of open nadis into all of our relating. Making peace with the world by liberating joy & trust in our heart-full humanity.

Sofia is a heath yoga master, and beautifully shares her body wisdom teachings, making them accessible for the modern western mind.

The Human Center of Action in the World

Wednesday 6:30pm – 8:00pm in the Community Lounge


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

The great spiritual and transformative traditions have shown that transformation goes beyond a personal internal shift to new actions and results in the world. Bob Dunham has spent decades exploring how the core elements of being human are the foundations of effective action in the world. Bob has used these foundations to reconstruct the skills and practices of action domains including leadership, teamwork, management, and community.

Join Bob for an exploration of how core elements of our humanity enable us to go beyond the mainstream mechanical interpretations of action and organizations to engage people in practices of creating shared futures, value, and meaning together.

Bob Dunham is founder of the Institute for Generative Leadership (IGL) and is co-author of The Innovator’s Way – Essential Practices for Successful Innovation with Dr. Peter Denning, published by MIT Press (www.innovators-way.com). The Institute for Generative Leadership (IGL) (www.generateleadership.com) delivers the human-action based disciplines of Generative Leadership in the Institute’s Generative Leadership Program™ (GLP) and the Coaching Excellence in Organizations program. The Institute has affiliates in India, Spain, and Latin America.

Bob holds two degrees from Stanford University, was on the staff that developed the three-year Ontological Design Course, and has studied the discipline of embodied learning and leadership extensively. Earlier in his career, he led the on-board software development team for the Hubble Space Telescope for several years, and co-holds patents for workflow technology based on the structure of human coordination.

Prior to founding the Institute Bob developed his leadership disciplines as a VP in several companies. He has also been a guest lecturer in the Executive Certification Program for Presidio Graduate School and in the Leading by Design Fellows Program for the California College of the Arts. He was Adjunct Faculty, Executive in Residence, in the Presidio Graduate School MBA program in Sustainable Management and previously taught at the University of San Francisco. He is currently exploring Chinese inner wisdom traditions for their contribution to understanding and embodying generative leadership.
