Practical Integral: An Introduction to the Integral Vision

Some say Integral Theory may be the first comprehensive world philosophy, which is interesting but why does it matter to you? It matters if you’re interested in your own development. It matters if you need evidence of human’s potential. It matters if you’re confused about how different disciplines and methodologies cohere. It matters if you cannot understand how some people think/behave. But most of all it matters if you need hope for the future of the planet. The Integral Vision is at its core, a map of humanity’s capacity for increased care, compassion and love, which we need in large doses for our planet to survive and flourish.

Catch the Integral Vision! Join me for a four-session course introducing the elements of Integral Theory. This course will whet your appetite and guide you to the myriad of resources available if you’d like to take a deeper dive into this exciting new vision.

We’ll have four 1 ½ hour sessions and the cost is $200.

Rather than set a course time and date, I’m asking people to email me at barbara@barbaraalexander.net if you’re interested in either class. Once I have enough requests we’ll find a time that works for the group. If you have questions about the class, please email me as well.

 

Practical Integral: Applying Integral Theory for Coaches, Spiritual Directors and Therapists

This five-session course will first introduce the five aspects of Integral Theory (quadrants, levels, lines, states and types) and then focus on four key lines of development to give helping professionals an understanding of their usefulness with clients. Clarity about specific lines of development, including the emotional, spiritual, values and ego development, enhances your capacity to experience how a client experiences the world. In addition it gives clues to what issues are salient for an individual and therefore what practices will help them develop. Cost for the five sessions is $250.

Comments from previous students:

Being with Barbara, in general, is like soaking in a pool of unconditional love.  In particular, her teachings on Integral Theory convert a subject that is complex and esoteric into practical and useful action in my coaching practice.

Deborra Oser, Certified Integral Coach

This course was extremely helpful to embodying my understanding of the lines in Integral Coaching. Barbara’s skill as a teacher is remarkable — she presents the information well, invites deep inquiry, and makes plenty of space for discussion and discovery. No question is too big or too small! And her respect and love for the material, the students, and our clients feels boundless. She creates a wonderful container for the class.

Molly Morgan, Certified Integral Coach

Barbara Alexander is a truly gifted teacher.  She provides clear guidance through complex concepts fraught with ambiguity and paradox.  All the while, she is inviting, patient and affirming.

Paula Zand, Spiritual Director
