Dear Friends,

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!).

AGENDA:

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,
Sincerely,
Jana and Eliot
