The Integral Movement has been the most important influence for me in making sense of the world; it has created a comprehensive map of human understanding and practices for directly experiencing the many facets of our lives. The audacity and clarity of the visions presented through the movement have been inspiring, humbling and astounding for me and have allowed for many important changes and insights I have been fortunate enough to experience. My engagement with the integral vision has waxed and waned through the years, but it has become the undercurrent of everything I do.
Recently, the hub of the movement, Integral Life, underwent a redesign and shared a video to promote the relaunch. The movement can be guilty of high enthusiasm, idealism and utopianism, and the video is full of that energy. I’m willing to forgive the hubris and excitement that surrounds integral because the framework it provides is so valuable for —and essential to— improving the world.
Something amazing is happening right now. All around the world, a new culture is beginning to emerge. It’s a culture of people like you—people who are bringing more beauty, more love, and more wholeness to our world and to our lives. It’s a culture of people who are creating an entirely new vision of who we are and where we are going—a positive, inspiring, radically hopeful vision of the future.
