Integral Studies

What is Integral Philosophy?

Integral philosophy is a school of thought and practical wisdom that genuinely seeks to integrate all aspects of knowledge gifted to us throughout history by various disciplines and traditions.

Introduced more commonly by the late Aurobindo Ghose, “Integral” is a term popularized by Ken Wilber to teach his wide-ranging philosophy. More broadly, however, “Integral” is a level of development to which all humans aspire. Integral perspectives transcend and include humanity’s rich history through pre-modernity, modernity and post modernity, while anticipating an ever more inclusive and emergent integral worldview. As you learn more about integral theory you will see how seemingly disparate disciplines are, in fact, able to co-exist with one another in harmony, with equal validity. There is, indeed, a path to marrying science and soul, the objective and the subjective, the tangible and the ineffable. There is, indeed, a path to honor one’s unique individuality while also honoring the deep cultural complexity and magic of our collective “we-space”.

Seeing the world through an integral lense is a powerful invitation to:

  • Give equal value to Goodness, Truth and Beauty
  • Explore our multiple intelligences and the developmental stages
  • Get to know our fascinating personality types and states of consciousness, from asleep to awakened!
  • To remind ourselves that while integral is an incredibly comprehensive map, it isn’t yet the territory; therefore guiding us to turn Integral philosophy into a life practice that connects the dots of who we truly are, a non-dual presence from which all else arise.
