Become the Relational Special Ops for Your Tribe

In this 20min recording, Jayson Gaddis of the Smart Couple podcast, and I discuss some pro-tips for being the relational leader in your family, work, and life.

Some of what we talk about:

~ How to develop your relationship maturity and be able to take more responsibility
~ Having an explicit “relational authority” for your work or family to facilitate when things get dicey
~ How to create a “secure home base” for your relationship
~ Some shortcuts for re-establishing connection, without “processing” all night

Listen to the recording here.

Jayson will be joining us for the Relational Leadership SummitOct 26-29th 2017, at the Integral Center in Boulder Colorado. The conversation is really starting to heat up, and we have some amazing contributors coming on board. There’s a super early bird discount that expires next Thursday, Aug 31stLearn more about the gathering and get your tickets here.


Integral Living Room

November 9th – 12th 2017

Our fifth gathering in November of 2016 was a great success, but it was emotionally intense. We began the event the morning after election day, and our conversations unfolded amidst the shock waves of the election. After many exchanges regarding our hopes and fears about the outcome, the three of us kept talking. We took some time to contemplate direction the of the next Integral Living Room, and after several months, we decided on the theme of:

A Shout From the Heart!

We want to pick up on Ken’s injunction to wrestle with our moral obligations in this time.
We want to explore how we “speak out, to the best of our ability, and shake the spiritual tree, and shine our headlights into the eyes of the complacent.”

We are excited to do it again, to explore what we have learned about taking action built on spiritual practice and enacted through a developmental lens. The Integral Living Room is a gathering where we come to talk, explore, and learn from each other’s work in the field. At the Integral Living Room, we are always catalyzed to a whole new level of intimacy, vulnerability, and mutual trust. There is nobody we would rather learn from than you.

We hope you can join us in Boulder November 9-12, 2017, to hang out with some very special friends, old and new, in a space that lets us all go as deep and wide as our hearts and minds allow.

In the meantime. scroll down for five years of Integral Living Room community podcasts and blog posts on topics ranging from politics and religion to science and culture.

Bridgehouse Community Service

Friday September 1st 4:15pm – 6:00pm at St. John’s Episcopal Church

“You just being here and having a smile on your face, giving good healthy food, being willing to talk to people for a while will make a difference.” ~ Robert McNaughton

Come and join us to share our practice and give back to Boulder. Don’t miss out on our September IC COMMUNITY SERVICE.

You will be giving a good healthy meal to someone who really appreciates it with hands-on and direct service to about 100 homeless locals in boulder at Bridge House – A Local Soup Kitchen at the First United Methodist Church.

We’ll want to aim for about 8 – 10 volunteers during those hours.

“Volunteering is more than just serving food, it’s about relating & human interaction.”

There will be minimal preparation because all food is provided: yummy, warm and healthy. You will have a chance to serve food and also a chance to sit down and talk to folks during the meal if you want to.

To volunteer for Bridge House is to experience and participate in that sense of humanity with the homeless and less fortunate to show that people really care, are compassionate and have enough interest to come and share their hearts with them.

WE are The Integral Center.

It takes a village to make a difference and we need you as part of our community. Let’s bring our practice. Let’s come together and give back to boulder.
