In our current post-modern world, we have at our fingertips an abundance of methodologies and practices from a multitude of fields and knowledge traditions at our fingertips. We can quickly flip from online videos to online courses to websites and online full-text archives to discover almost any informational data we may be seeking. Unless coherently organized in a comprehensive and integrative worldview though, the perspectives are fragmented. The Integral approach, originated by philosopher, Ken Wilber, drives toward a genuine “theory of everything,” that harmonizes all of the relevant practices, methodologies, and experiences available to us. Through this Integral approach, possibilities for a more compassionate and more sustainable future are explored and can be realized.
As we look toward the launch of the second VoiceAmerica special on Conscious Business for a flourishing world tomorrow (click here for The Convergence on VoiceAmerica), we are delighted to share this background video on the principles of integral theory. In this recording, Ken Wilber discusses the Integral Vision and Integral Principles with Peter Matthies, a Guest Editor of Conscious Business Magazine and Founder of the Conscious Business Institute. This supplemental discussion backgrounds his appearances in Conscious Business Magazine’s VoiceAmerica Special and premier issue of Light on Light’s Conscious Business Magazine, “Conscious Business for a Flourishing World.”
Ken Wilber emphasizes that the Integral Vision and Integral Principles universally background all areas of human discourse and activity and are being applied by thousands of thought leaders, entrepreneurs and CEO’s around the world in nearly 100 areas of engagement and expertise. For more about integral, visit www.integrallife.com and www.kenwilber.com. The tutorial specifically mentioned by Ken Wilber in this audio is available online here. It is very user-friendly and well illustrated. We highly recommend it.
It is our hope that this supplemental offering spurs you to further investigate integral in application to your own areas of expertise, engagement, leadership, service—and life. Join us in looking forward to the launch of Part 2 of the Conscious Business VoiceAmerica Special tomorrow!
From us at Light on Light with love,
