Again, we strongly believe that this is a truly revolutionary practice in terms of actually facilitating evolutionary growth and integration (and the group members are really enjoying doing it!).

We decided to have our next meetup in June to give everyone plenty of time to complete the homework assignment.

The agenda will be our new tri-part format of BODY:MIND:SPIRIT. We'll start with body-mind practice of UZAZU/16 Ways following the video. (New to UZAZU? You are welcome to come and simply watch and learn more; check out the site for more info: http://www.uzazu.org/.... Following we will have our discussion based on the homework and topic and we will wrap up with a 15 minute formless meditation.

Our discussion will remain on the topic of Critical Thinking (Metacognition). Ken Wilber talks about how many so-called 'spiritual' circles have a tendency towards anti-intellectualism, as the conceptual and cognitive realm is seen as 'anti-spiritual'. He goes on to reveal how cognition is actually a requirement for grounded spiritual development and awareness (the prerational/rational/transrational distinction). (For more, read p. 113 of Integral Spirituality).

Our new homework is understanding the common fallacies: http://philosophy.hku......and the reading of Critical Thinking Development: A Stage Theory:http://www.criticalth... .

If you have missed our previous sessions on critical thinking here is an Introductory Article: http://catdir.loc.gov...

Also, if you are new to Ken Wilber's theory and works, a great article to start is: From the Great Chain of Being to Postmodernism in Three Easy Steps: http://wilber.shambha...

Looking forward to seeing you all,
with our shared love of learning, evolution, and growth,
in body, mind and spirit.

All the best,
Jana and Eliot
