What we're about

Integral theory braids philosophical and cultural, as well as spiritual and psychological aspects of life. With emphasis on inclusion and human development, this group meets to put theory in to practice.

Integral balances depth and breadth of all major contemplative traditions, both the Western and Eastern, as well as scientific and spiritual. These vast disciplines have three common tracts for cultivation: Waking up, Growing up and Cleaning up.

Integral Life Practice includes four modules: Body practice, Study practice/Mental training, Spiritual /contemplative cultivation and Shadow work.

This group may be for you if you are familiar with Integral and would like to contribute to a practice group, or if you are just discovering Integral or meditation or psychology and have curiosities that you'd like to test.

If the group is full you can join us on Facebook and and attend our meetups though Facebook as well.

Yoga, Qi & Meditation

Portland Integral Hub

This meet is time in a space dedicated to self care. A time to connect with the layers of self, explore your body and take care of it. A time bookmarked for physical self-care. You’re invited to meditate too. Or simply lie on the floor and rest, quietly together. The cork floors in the workshop space work wonders for stretching and dancing if you so choose. There’ll be a little music, tea, snacks, and plenty of physical self-care tools. Stretching and breathing before bed helps shed sticky patterns and sets up for a wholehearted sleep. Resets the system so more can be processed during sleep. Good for working with addictions of any kind - emotional or physical. If you want to learn Qi cultivation, stretches and yoga poses that clear specific emotional systems located in highways in the body, ask Natalie for private instruction. Bring a yoga mat and any other favorite practice tools, props, sweaters, blankets, etc. Donations are not necessary, but also are welcome.

Integral Discussion & Study

Portland Integral Hub

This group studies Integral models and contexts. We talk about life, development and inclusion. We also explore how these concepts can be used, and are already being used, in life and communication. It is intended for new as well as seasoned students. Whatever your depth of understanding, you are invited to contribute. Many of the concepts are intuitive and practical in a way that they’re easy to grasp, but hard to learn deeply. “A Brief History of Everything” by Ken Wilber is the first book we are reading. We’re halfway through. You’re welcome to dive-in in the middle. If you haven’t read or don’t have a copy, no problem. Let’s see what comes up and how we relate to it. A great opportunity to ask and share questions and your experience. You can purchase the book at Powell's: https://www.powells.com/book/-9781570621871

Sunday Community Practice - Holon Developmemt

Portland Integral Hub

Integral Life Practice includes four tracts of development: mind, body, spirit and shadow work. Sunday Practice Meets include three practices: body & Qi practice designed to ground and integrate physically, two 20-minute meditation periods and a relational integration practice in the style of holon development. Holon Development? What’s that? Holons are a symbol that represents how life is organized physically, mentally, emotionally, culturally, spiritually, and even in systems. A holon is whole, and it is part of something bigger than itself and also has wholes that are part of itself. We are growing together as whole parts of something bigger than ourselves, and we take care of our parts. This group meets weekly to grow, exchange, support, celebrate and work with the challenges that bump up in our lives. We use Integral tools to understand and include more contexts, more parts of ourselves and others. Not a drop in meetup, if you are new, you are invited to begin with us either on the first Sunday of the month, or, Tuesday Study Meets are always drop-in style. We meet at Portland Integral Hub at 1523 SE Haig St., Portland, OR 97202 on consistent Sundays from 2 - 5pm. Tea is provided. Suggested donation: $10-20. Integral Life Practice! Help us shape our present and future. Do contact us if you have any curiosities.
