Avoiding the Ambush of Hope:
A Week-end for Exhausted and Overworked Leaders and Activists
Nalanda West, Seattle, Washington
September 26-28, 2014
“Expectation is just premeditated disappointment.”
Those of us actively engaged in changing things for the better-in our families, organizations, communities and world-are robbed of vital energy by a false assumption. We believe that we have to have hope. Without hope, we will have no motivation, no energy and no perseverance for the increasingly difficult work of creating positive change. We often feel that if we let go of hope, we will plunge into despair and useless lives.
In Buddhism, hope is not an isolated energy. It is always and irrevocably described with its intimate companion, fear. Fear is the shadow side of hope: we expect a certain outcome, then are anxious it won’t happen. We work diligently to create a good result, then plunge into despair when it doesn’t materialize. The stronger our hope, the stronger our fear. Therefore, in order to be fearless, we need to be hopeless…

Fourth International Integral Theory Conference
July 16th to July 19th, 2015
MetaIntegral Foundation will host the fourth international Integral Theory Conference, the world’s largest academic conference devoted to the field of Integral Theory and practice. The conference will take place on the Sonoma State University (SSU) campus in the new Student Center and will include a curated art exhibition, as well as villagestyle lodging, performances, social activities, and other innovative cultural offerings. ITC 2015 will be held in partnership with The HUB: An Integral Center for Diversity, Vitality & Creativity, which is located at SSU.
The theme of this fourth ITC event is: Integral Impacts: Using Integrative Metatheories to Catalyze Effective Change. Integral Theory is currently being applied in over 35 distinct disciplines and yet there has been relatively very little work done to demonstrate how an integral approach is more valuable, more effective, and more sustainable. So while it is generally assumed an integral approach is better than a non-integral approach we have not made a very strong case to our non-integral colleagues that integral approaches are more impactful.
Proposals will be subject to a refereed review process. As noted above the deadline for proposals is November 15th, 2014. Please send proposals or any questions you might have to ITC@ metaintegral.org. Notification of acceptance or rejection will occur on January 15th, 2015.
THE INTERNATIONAL JEAN GEBSER SOCIETY
Forty-Fourth Annual Conference
CRISIS AND MUTATION
Judson Memorial Church
New York City, 17-18th October 2014
This conference invites its participants to examine the liminal space of “Crisis and Mutation” in order to concretize the ever-latent (yet ever-present) origin. In doing this we seek to unveil the integral presence underpinning the complex and conflicting undulations of human evolution.
Some of the questions this conference seeks to address include:
- How can the symptoms of disintegration that fragment our world be understood as negative indicators of the integral (i.e. what is the solution hidden in the dissolution)?
- How can tension be used to liberate ourselves from the extremes that create this very tension?
- What is the “alchemy” of consciousness by which we can engage and transmute deficient manifestations into integral concretions?
