I like Ken,Spiral Dynamics,and non-dual sages(Krishnamurti, Lao Tzu,etc.),for the"big picture"(and going beyond"pictures"),as well as lots of other people for their insights and perspectives on the details - in the quadrants, lines, vMemes,waves,etc.
If you have read some of Ken Wilbers books (particularly Integral Spirituality as it uses the current model) and want to try to put it to use with authenticity, accuracy, grounding and clarity, in community, you might get value from this group. We are an integral group, with a focus on understanding, analysis and application, using a grounded multidimensional framework for making useful distinctions in terms of genealogical development, healthy (as opposed to pathological dominator type) hierarchies of values, subject / object relations, and the appropriate contextualization of content. At the simplest level, it is learning to think "AND" rather than exclusively "OR", and learning to think in terms of contextual appropriateness more than absolute "right or wrong" in the manifest relative realm.
