ITC 2015 will be held from July 16-19 on the beautiful campus of Sonoma State University in the heart of California Wine Country. Come experience the world's largest academic, professional, and artistic conference devoted to Integral Theory and its application.
Terry Patten will be presenting a paper on Integral Soul Work and leading a pre-conference workshop:
In this workshop, we will create a safe space to notice, relax, and release the armoring around our hearts, which can open us into intimacy with ourselves, our bodies, and Spirit itself. Our process will include three kinds of work: Relational practices to cultivate intimacy with ourselves, each other, and Spirit; Embodied transformative work anchored in breath and somatic psychology; and an intelligent framework that can help us integrate the work. In the spirit of “all life is yoga,” we will do yogas of breath and body, heart and spirit — daring to open our bodies, embrace our wounds, and befriend our exiled parts. Simultaneously, we will make our way to the authentic joy at the heart of life.
This journey will support us as we:
· Reconnect with our passion and source of embodied power
· Free up our contact with the tender places inside that we tend to protect
· Break through our inner taboos against ecstasy Read more »
When Terry teaches, I feel that his heart is on fire. He has tremendous passion for integral theory, especially for its potential to catalyze human transformation. Terry models a wonderful combination of intellectual lucidity, a full embrace of nuance and paradox, authentic and unself-conscious spiritual gravitas, and hot devotion.
