We are lucky to live in a time when several living streams of spiritual awakening are interconnecting and integrating. In this evening we’ll engage an experiential exploration of the intersection between:
Integral evolutionary spirituality
A “higher we”—and the Soul of the We
In Soul work we come into a deeper relationship with our Soul and the Soul of the earth, learning to trust our Soul, ourselves, and life itself. In this process, we learn to deeply listening, through which we discover our unique creative nature and purpose for being on the planet. From this soul-centric perspective, even transcendent awakening, to nondual consciousness is just part of the soul’s journey. Read more »
We proudly announce the 1st Integral European Conference 2014 from the 8th to the 11th of May. We gather to witness and celebrate “The Emergence of Integral Consciousness in Europe”. An estimated 500 people from approximately 20 countries all across Europe and overseas will meet in beautiful Budapest. We will help the birthing of a European identity that will also represent the continent in the global integral movement.
It’s not a seminar or a conference, with a set curriculum, but a warm gathering of friends, gently facilitated to bring out the best of each of us. Held at the Integral Center in beautiful Boulder, Colorado, the Integral Living Room is designed to be intimate, human scale, affordable, and ALIVE.
Hosted by integral veterans Diane Hamilton, Terry Patten, and Jeff Salzman, the gathering will embrace the spirit of integral living, which manifests as a kind of inquiry: How can we embody and express the insights into interconnectedness (aka “Integral Theory”) that have inspired us so deeply? We’ll explore topics such as: Read more »
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 Reichian 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.
During this weekend workshop, Terry Patten will guide participants in gaining a felt understanding of the next wave of Integral consciousness, which has already begun to shape and change the world.
Terry will also be exploring the "strange attractor" of a positive evolutionary future and how we can tap into a virtually unlimited source of energy and inspiration by allowing ourselves to be pulled toward that future. He’ll also look at what it means to practice integral evolutionary consciousness on a daily basis, allowing our highest consciousness to work through us, as us!
And he will re-contextualize the global crises we face at this time in our evolution as a spiritual and existential challenge.
Terry Patten is a leading-edge teacher through whose work dharma is finding fresh and passionate expression. I heartily recommend him to any serious seeker of spiritual awakening and conscious evolution.
