Welcome to Houston Integral Consciousness! We are happy you found us... ! Our group is filled with people actively wanting to live more free and whole lives by applying the theories and practices of integral philosophy (Ken Wilber), Spiral Dynamics (Don Beck), Steve McIntosh, and many others, to our everyday lives. Our topics and discussions are less philosophical in nature, and more focused on exploration/sharing/discovery/and application in all aspects of our daily living. We thrive on getting "out of our heads", and embodying the principles we find resonating with us.
We are people wanting to take honest inventories of ourselves and our shadows, our personal growth "edges", and seeking deeper levels of what it means to live more "integral" lives. We examine first individually, and then as a group, how to incorporate those skills and values into our world -- again starting with ourselves.
Individuals best suited for this group are people already interested in Integral theory/practice, and who want to join us in spaces of openness, listening, engagement, consideration, substantive dialogue, introspection, observation, silence, and play, with the goal of becoming more personally "integral".
Our group members are committed to creating a safe environment in which everyone may explore living more integrally through self-discovery/awareness and self-mastery. We genuinely value each other, having direct and nonjudgemental communications, and ever-growing our compassion for one another, and our world. We also believe that creating a space to do this together increases our individual effectiveness at integrating all levels of ourselves, and our collective consciousness at the same time, adding to the evolution of our world consciousness.
Sharing in our group is as personal or as general as each member feels comfortable. Your level of involvement is up to you. Community (or "tribe"), honest dialogue with self and others, plus personal and collective exploration towards greater integral consciousness and be-ing are the cornerstones of our group.
Ours is a unique group in that we are vibrant, and excited about our journeys together. We are more than just a group that meets together to discuss topics; we genuinely enjoy the bond we have created among our members. We have fun together, as we progress down our individual paths. Our vision was to create a strong, warm, integral tribe and we have done just that. We are also beginning a long-overdue movement in Houston, tapping into the powerful, nourishing movement sweeping the entire world. We are playmates excited to find our other 1%! (To combine a few member-comments.)
To get a feel for who we are, please scroll through the many comments from members about our group, on individual"past meet-up" pages, as well in the gallery at the bottom of the "Home" page.
We create our group together, and it evolves in interesting, exciting, and delicious ways. Ideas and feedback are always richly welcomed! If this sounds like a space you'd enjoy, please, we'd love for you to join us.

On the 2nd WEDNESDAY of every month, we explore various topics, speakers, and concepts in a multitude of ways and mediums (videos, seminars, in-group or guest speakers, etc.).
On the 4th WEDNESDAY of every month, we explore together our experiences, thoughts, feelings, challenges, and insights from working through a specific part of the book Integral Life Practice: A 21st-Century Blueprint for Physical Health, Emotional Balance, Mental Clarity, and Spiritual Awakening.
We also meet in-between those dates, for integral outings, movies, potlucks, and other fun, get-to know-you/bonding times to enhance our embodiment of community and self in-community. Please join us for any and everything that looks interesting to you!
