The idea of “teal organizations” described in Frederick Laloux’s book Reinventing Organizations is gaining popularity today both globally and in Russia.

Hundreds of entrepreneurs and business leaders in various companies—from IT to banks—are seeking new forms of self-organizing. They’re tired of the limitations that are inherent in classical hierarchical subdivisions, their low efficiency and effectiveness and incapacity to flexibly adapt to the VUCA world (that is, our world now characterized by volatility, …

Eugene Pustoshkin Holoscendence and Multidimensional communication

Eugene Pustoshkin

In this article I want to tell about the concept of multidimensional communication pioneered in Holoscendence, an integral meta-method of human development, first introduced and developed by Sergey Kupriyanov, PhD in Medicine, a Russian-born Integral therapist from Helsinki, Finland (Kupriyanov 2013).

Dr. Kupriyanov—during the many years of his work in USSR as a practicing psychotherapist and researcher of family therapy and psychosomatic medicine (e.g., Kupriyanov 1983)—became interested in the evolution and further …

Eugene Pustoshkin

Ilya Kuznetsov, aka MC 1.8, is a dear friend of mine. He comes from a simple background, and witnessed a lot of violence in his youth—which commonly happened in the post-Soviet era and which often serves as a crucial existential background for a rapper (such as him). To me, he is a warrior of spirit, a person who shows in his own life path that the

Russia cannot be understood with the mind alone . . .
Fyodor Tyutchev (1803–1873), a poet

Russia is enigmatic mystery. It is full of paradoxes, contrasts, and opposites, a kind of simultaneous divergence of the opposites and coincidentia oppositorum, the country of both dissociation-fragmentation and the thirst for wholeness, healing, and transcendence.

Here, very rich coincide with very poor, scarcity of spirit coincides with spiritual abundance, damnation of souls with …

We live in truly interesting and turbulent times, as the events of 2014 show us. Geopolitical and sociocultural landscapes, gigantic tectonic plates of meanings and socioeconomic factors begin to move, bringing forth noticeable shifts and re-distributions of power relations. It is extraordinarily difficult to orient in the sequence of sociopolitical earthquakes and hurricanes, for the complexity of the situation beats all records and demands a truly panoramic vision. The panoramic vision itself, …

November and December 2013 were rich on Integral events in Russia.

In November, the Russians finally saw the fruits of literally a few years of publishing endeavors. The long-awaited Ken Wilber’s works Integral Spirituality and Boomeritis were released as ebooks; and Moscow-based Postum Publishers printed Wilber’s A Theory of Everything. Now a team of enthusiasts (myself included) works on preparing the Russian ebook editions of Integral Relationships by Martin Ucik, …

I went to sleep and woke up thinking about something Ken Wilber said in the previous day’s talk at the Integral Center (Boulder, Colorado, USA)—an important talk which I recommend all to watch.

At some point in the talk Wilber spoke about the differences between translation and transformation (I partially touched this issue in one of my previous post regarding obstacles to the transpersonal).

In my own words, he spoke that transformation …
