The Integral Dojo
Individual and collective development in and through an integral context.
We live in a complex world. For those of us who wish to better understand and navigate this world, the Integral map known as AQAL is a valuable tool. We hope to deepen our understanding of how AQAL can help us navigate today's dynamic internal and external universe. We are actively seeking some of the most challenging arenas to tackle using the Integral Lens. Previous topics have included the Middle East/Palestine, new models for recreating business and leadership, the Internet and America's transportation system. Integral Philly is a group is for seekers who wish to apply the Integral Theory lens to help understand complex issues and topics around emerging consciousness and our changing world.
You will find progressive and spiritually awakened people in this group.
We have two requests of meeting participants:
1) Participants in our meetings are expected to have read through at least the introductory material shown below. Your ability to participate and ask meaningful questions will be enhanced by investing 30 minutes or so in the model.
2) Our meetings are currently structured with a specific Integral Dojo format. The format is roughly:
- Opening with Admin
- Speaker facilitates a topic/discussion or activity exploring Integrally informed topics
- Expression of gratitude
We are continuing to explore new structures, processes and methods to create an "Integral Dojo" for integrally informed training. We welcome constructive inquiry and exploration in our conversation but insist that all interactions remain positive and respectful. We seek to maintain a positive, upbeat energy throughout our meetings.
Our intention is to deepen our understanding of our world and consciousness using the Integral model - and to embody its wisdom through practice in both form and formlessness. We support and sustain each other; learning from each other’s experiences. We are committed to providing a safe harbor of community and friendship. Together we evolve; developing progressive, open-minded perspectives and deeper understanding. We find joy through aligning and sharing our hearts and minds with each other - as well as others in our lives.
Please contact our Organizer if you have topic you'd like to suggest.
