When I see a new book coming out from someone involved with the integral movement (Stamper co-founded and led the Seattle Integral salon), and especially the Ken Wilber version of integral theory, I steel myself for the seemingly obligatory two to three …

When discussions turn to the multifarious complexities of interconnected challenges and possible solutions, Ken Wilber is well known for sitting back, laughing, and saying “yes, it’s an all-quadrant-phenomenon—all the time!”  

By this—in integral terms—he means that we all have our first person, second person, third person, and third person plural experiences of reality going on simultaneously all the time. But, to history’s …

Integral Leadership in Action 2012, Evolving Leadership for an Awakening World: Transforming Leadership through Theory, Action and Application

Notes from the Field / August 2012

Lisa Norton and Lynne Palazzolo

LN: The Integral Leadership in Action (ILiA) conference May 17-21, 2012 in Santa Cruz, CA, created both an emergence and a continuance of the WE space in the Integral Community. During DJ Sosan’s fabulous dance party, Jennifer Blalock asked me if I would like to write a brief post-conference reflection. Upon returning home to Chicago, my solitary efforts did not begin to convey the shared feeling of ILiA. It seemed that Lynne Palazzolo had experienced …

When a meditation college from Mainland USA identified the most remote place in the world as an ideal location for higher education study-abroad programs, the college initially looked within for commitment from 10 of its current undergraduate students who together formed the initial cohort of an experimental semester in sustainability education. For the college that pioneered the first Sustainable Living degree in North America, the Big Island of Hawai’i would become home to a series of …

8/31 – Trusting Desire: A Trans-lineage ‘Living Spirituality’ that Actually Leads to Action

Feature Articles / August-November 2016

Zach Schlosser


In this paper I outline a trans-lineage spirituality rooted in our intrinsic and discovered desires. I begin with a critique of Buddhism and then draw on insights from Saniel Bonder’s work developing the contemporary awakening school Waking Down in Mutuality, Bonnitta Roy’s Process Model of Integral Theory and her notion of View, Bruce Alderman’s and A.H. Almaas’s recent trans-lineage reconsiderations of ontology and soteriology respectively, process philosophers such as Charles Hartshorne and Eugene Gendlin to respond to …

8/31 – A Couples Line of Development

Integral European Conference #IEC2016 / August-November 2016

Thomas A. Habib


A couples line of development is proposed from an integral perspective. The couples line specifies developmental stages, tasks for each stage and describes cultural messages that impede development. It reveals the nature and effects of an integral concept called a pre/trans fallacy unique to early intimate relationships and how this often results in widely arrested development at the second and third stages.  It locates the efforts of therapists who provide conjoint therapy, identifies developmentally targeted skill …

8/19 – Exploring the Triple Impact of Evolutionary Co-leadership

Feature Articles / August-November 2015

Alain Gauthier


The purpose of this paper is to explore – from an integral perspective – what it means and what it takes to transcend and include individual leadership in moving toward evolutionary co-leadership, as well as the triple impact it can have – at the individual, group, and societal levels. There are profound shifts occurring across all sectors of society that have many leadership implications about what can be learned from the evolutionary perspective. These considerations lead to …

2/15 – (Re)Joining the Conversation: Commenting on Integral Voices on Sex, Gender, and Sexuality: Critical Inquiries

Book Reviews / January-February 2015

Diana Claire Douglas


Sarah Nicholson and Vanessa Fisher were inspired to start a conversation within the Integral Community about sex, gender and sexuality. Their edited book Integral Voices is the result, and for many of their authors, just the beginning of that conversation.

Invited to review Integral Voices, I was aware that I was dropping into many conversations that already had a history, some of which I knew something about, and some I didn’t. I found myself needing to
