Leadership Quote
06/29 Gandhi
Gandhi We but mirror the world. All the tendencies present in the outer world are to be found in the world of our body. If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. This […]

06/29 – Going Slow to Go Fast
Jody Jones
Jody Jones Often when we want to make a change, it is because a pattern of behavior, beliefs and confirmation bias has become entrenched and isn’t working for us any longer, even though in the past it served us rather well. Once the commitment to change is activated, there is a strong push to kill […]

06/29 – Transdisciplinary Curriculum: Educational Philosophy and Rationale
Sue L. T. McGregor
Sue L. T. McGregor Higher education is one of the most important arenas in which the transdisciplinary (TD) approach should be applied (Güvenen, 2016). Fortunately, educational institutions are “evolving [so they can] answer the demand for transdisciplinary skills” (Güvenen, 2016, p. 75). In concert, “educators are recognizing the vital significance of designing a transdisciplinary curriculum” […]
06/29 – More Statesmanship, Less Leadership Please!
Edward Kelly
Edward Kelly According to this model of adult development, less than 10% of our leaders have the developmental capacity to match the complexity of the issues they face, and that includes President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Theresa May. This mismatch, which gets resolved at the next stage in our or their development, looks more […]
06/29 – Limitations of Frankfurt School Hauptseminars From a Perspective of the Dialectical Thought Form Framework (DTF)
Otto Laske
Otto Laske While resurgent interest in the writings of the Frankfurt School, especially Adorno, is over-focused on the ideological content of his writings, a much more relevant aspect of Adorno’s work is that of a teacher of ‘deep’, or dialectical, thinking. Adorno’s ‘Negative Dialektik’ spells out his teaching only in a form once-removed, rather than […]
06/29 – Gandhi’s Integral Leadership to Greatness for All (Sarvodaya): With Truth (Satya), Nonviolence (Ahimsa), and Self-Rule (Swaraj)
Ray Gehani
Ray Gehani Many prominent leaders and major media have almost unanimously acknowledged Mohandas K. Gandhi (1869 – 1948) as one of the 20th Century’s greatest leaders for humankind (Time, 1999).  Gandhi is also recognized as a firm believer and practitioner of truth and nonviolence with high integrity.  Albert Einstein noted, “Generations to come will scarce […]

Cristina, Gabriela, and Gonzalo Alcalde
Cristina Alcalde, M.

06/29 – Toward a Technology Infrastructure for the Second Tier
Don Dulchinos
Don Dulchinos Integral thinkers Don Beck and Ken Wilber have both cited Pierre Teilhard de Chardin’s noosphere as a model or metaphor for the Turquoise stage of human development.  Teilhard spoke of “a harmonised collectivity of consciousnesses equivalent to a sort of super-consciousness.” [1] I published a book entitled Neurosphere (after noosphere), in 2005, the […]
06/29 – An Attempt at a Trans-Contextual Learning Model: Extracting a Meta-Model Across Time, Space, and Discipline
Ian Roth
Ian Roth It is self-evident that the most useful education is one that facilitates learning-how-to-learn.  While the reasons for past failures to provide such an education are undoubtedly multivariate, among them must certainly be counted the apparent difficulty of delivering such an education.  The more bureaucratized and institutionalized the educational context becomes, the more this […]

06/29 – The Desire for Mutual Recognition: Social Movements and the Dissolution of the False Self
Barbara Nussbaum
Barbara Nussbaum This book has already been singled out by its academic publisher, Routledge, nominating it for the best nonfiction book in 2018. But for me the compelling reason for a broader audience to read it, is the artful way it embodies its own timely message for humanity. Peter Gabel makes a compelling case for […]
