Integral Spirituality is the forming of a fundamental spiritual concept based on the best of our available knowledge structured in the most accessible form, adaptable and suitable for any stage of spiritual development. For the last 30 years, this concept has been moulded to give a clear, no bullshit approach with consideration to our current stages of psychological development.
The concept identifies the magic, mythic, rational, plaural and integral stages of life context, covering first, second and third person perspectives. We can identify stages, present tools and practices that can develop and integrate your experiences and perspectives to allow a meaningful whole of the spiritual landscape around you.
To be brief, the ardent study of Buddhist monks, their dedication to improve and preserve knowledge and essentially transcend generation to collectively amass thousands of years of experience has uncovered some fundamental truths of human subjective experience. Those seeking these common truths will have much in common with the general and more accessible philosophies of Buddhism and on a spiritual path, or a journey of interpersonal subjective study, these are great guides to be understood. Taoism can be viewed as the shortest and most poetic form of these philosophies, and we will engage in a discussion on the Tao Te Ching and its impact on the minds of many Western gurus, such as Alan Watts, Ram Dass, Stephen Mitchell and so on.
The law of impermanence, mindfulness and being present, western concepts of love and eastern concepts of compassion, how to respond to strong emotions, the importance of patience and simplicity in lifestyle are some of the concepts that can be discussed.
