DAILY SCHEDULE – IEC Online


Schedule for 28th May (Thursday)

During the 4 days of IEC Online, you’ll be able to participate in (or rewatch) almost 100 workshops, presentations and art shows.

We intend to have as much meaningful exchange, sharing, and learning, along with connectedness and fun, as possible from our homes during the coronavirus times, and create an atmosphere of relaxedness, openness, curiosity, and playfulness in this collective meaning-making.

See the schedule of the 2nd day at IEC Online!

MORNING PRACTICE

Katharina Pilhofer

Flow – Bring your body into Flow through embodied Yoga

7:00 AM – 8:00 AM (CEST)

This gentle Yoga morning practice will get your body-mind ready for the first day at IEC online! We will engage in an embodied form of Yoga in which we provide care and nourishment to the body so that you feel ready to join the program from home. This will be a gentle dynamic flow practice that leaves enough space for your own exploration, pace and needs. Your body is the main guide here! Get a Yoga mat and a few props ready (optional, if available) and see you on the mat!

INTEGRAL SPIRITUALITY

Chris Alder

The Subtle Art of Practice Design

9:00 AM – 10:30 AM (CEST)

Once you grasp the significance of the Integral Framework it is inevitable that you start to see the world through a developmental lens. This leads most to engaging in some kind of Integral Life Practice (ILP) or series of inter-related practices that develop capacities in key areas. There are plenty of ‘off the shelf’ practices that will support your development, but how you know what’s truly needed? And how would you go about designing your own Integral informed bespoke practices that can stretch your own edges of development in the most impactful way?

In this workshop, Chris will guide you through the Subtle Art of Practice design from an ICC perspective. You will learn how to identify what you most need to develop and how to design practices crafted for your unique needs in 3 very important lines of development, Somatic, Emotional, and Spiritual. You will leave with your very own ILP and gain glimpses into your own AQAL Constellation™ which will guide your future development.

BREAK

10:30 AM – 11:30 AM (CEST)

James Eaton

Finding true safety in uncertain times

11:00 AM – 12:30 PM (CEST)

Through meditations, live music, silent connecting, sense-based exercises & intimate dialogues, James will guide you with gentle precision towards realising who you really, REALLY are, on the deepest level.

From that ‘place’ of clarity and openness, you will begin to acknowledge the unconscious fear-based patterns, self-beliefs and physical clenches that block you from expressing fully, freely and authentically in life.

In discovering how to meet those uncomfortable feelings from the unconditional, loving openness that you truly are, those frozen blockages can begin to thaw enabling your essential qualities—of sensitivity, tenderness, playfulness, courage, compassion, strength, power, etc.—to naturally flow.

In the atmosphere of absolute acceptance and support that James offers, there is also the chance to PLAY with acting spontaneously and intuitively—with LIVING freedom.

Ultimately it all adds up to a celebration of life with openhearted sharing, music, singing, silence, tears, and laughter.

ROOM 2

INTEGRAL SHADOW WORK

Bart De Coninck

Reconstructive, a new dimension

9:00 AM – 10:30 AM (CEST)

Reconstructive is a new method, a new way of learning and developing consciousness. Carola Castillo created it out of the work of Bert Hellinger, shamanic influences from the Amazone-area and old and new wisdom from different sciences and religions. It is the body-experience of an altered state of consciousness. Like a deep meditation or a state of trance but in movement and interaction with a small group. In this process the body receives information and finds solutions for emotional blockages or unsolved issues. It integrates insights and strength. Our potential as human beings is far bigger than we realize. As children we learned how to adapt. We carry negative images, fear and blocked emotions. Somehow we lost connection to our core. We can’t feel the full potential of our strength. In Reconstructive our perception changes. Our awareness grows. We receive information about what is ‘bigger than myself’, ‘bigger than this life’.

BREAK

10:30 AM – 11:30 AM (CEST)

Ildikò Császár Rozsovits

Revealing Golden Shadow Through Body And Sounds

11:00 AM – 12:30 PM (CEST)

Shadow… what can we find there? Suppressed negative thoughts and feelings, like pain, fear, anger, aggression – and a lot of undiscovered beauty, joy, courage, power, connection! In this workshop our golden shadow will be in the focus. We will use our bodies and authentic voice to discover, unfold and express some of our hidden potentials. We will use Bodywork group therapy which is a kind of dance and movement therapy working with authentic movement, connection, and touch, developed in Hungary over the last decades. It focuses on both intrapersonal and interpersonal dimensions in order to reach past experiences that have their traces in our bodies and finding new experiences to express ourselves in a more authentic way. Besides your movements, you will also be encouraged to make sounds for more integrated self-expression. Since we will meet online I suggest you create a space where you have some room to move, and the possibility to make sounds freely during the workshop.

ROOM 3

INTEGRAL HEALTH TECHNOLOGIES

Christine Doan; Lan Diep

Hack your Immune System with Transformative Technologies

9:00 AM – 10:30 AM (CEST)

Transformative Technology is a freshly burgeoning sector of the digital revolution. Will it help us expand and integrate but yet avoid, even repair, the collateral damage of much of the digital revolution? We could speculate about ethical and developmental elements. However, we have a more pressing concern right now: COVID-19. Endless research and speculation have resulted from the Novel Corona Virus, while less attention is paid to the necessity to build up our individual and collective immune systems. Are there novel ways to create robust immunity to help us stand up physically and emotionally to the pandemic’s toll? Explore with Christine Doan and Lan Diep, two devoted integralists from Down Under, how one beautiful example of Trans Tech might speed up and bolster the development of our immunity. Christine introduces the Focus Band, an EEG in a headband, which gives feedback in real-time of what each of our brain waves is creating. Lack of flow or coherence can impede or eventually crash immunity—along with performance and even happiness! Lan explores with participants what might this Transformative Technology means to us using the integral three domains of reality lens: beauty, goodness, and truth. Trans Tech Global is the parent organisation to Trans Tech Australasia. They define Trans Tech as “technology which is scientifically and medically validated to produce greater mental health, wellbeing and thriving.”

Olli Sovijärv

An integral and comprehensive approach on biohacking immunity

11:00 AM – 12:30 PM (CEST)

In the near future, the potential still remains for a global highly contagious pandemic that can be resistant to existing treatments such as antivirals and antibiotics. This is why preparedness is not just wise but recommended.

In this 90-minute presentation Dr. Olli Sovijärvi (M.D., online certificate on Integral Theory) goes through the basics of the immune system, mechanisms of epidemics, disease prevention from the collective and individual point of view, individual means to a strong immune system and which technological, biological and nutritional biohacks work for the immune system.

Spirals of connecting to ourselves and others

9:00 AM – 10:30 AM (CEST)

In this workshop participants can create a spiral process of connecting to themselves and to others. We go through different levels of connectedness. Starting from the heart, going through body-and-heart to body-and-heart-and-spirit.
After an Overture, we start with an exercise for Opening the Space of Heart. In this exercise, one can find the whole process in a seed form. The next circle in the spiral is bodywork that aims to attain your Highest Self.
The circle of free dance meditation works with connections by rhythm, and movement. In this exercise, we are looking for opportunities to connect to ourselves and to others in a deeper level to experience joy. Participants are free to find connections either to their deeper self or to others – as they are inspired in the here and now.
The last part of the workshop is for raising awareness by a reflection from the heart.

Angela Halvorsen Bogo

An Anchor in the Unknown

11:00 AM – 12:30 PM (CEST)

We are on the edge of something fantastic. Forced to be online to connect, in a challenging moment, capacities that accelerate subtle connection have surprisingly emerged for many. For Angela, used to teaching in person, necessity and curiosity led her to a series of explorations with Transformational Play (improv, storytelling, and mindfulness) this spring. By adapting her work to the online world, practices developed that release stress, create ease, and broaden our bandwidth to notice and be with more in any moment. To be able to hold ourselves and each other steady as the world rocks and shifts is a greatly needed, generous act. In this approach to play, we get grounded together across the earth and collectively increase our capacity to enjoy, to receive, to feel, to take in more beauty, truth, and goodness as it is emerging. We help each other to open to inspired ideas for action, reorient ourselves, and hold light as the changes are happening.

Unearthing complexities: COVID-19 versus climate change

4:00 PM – 4:30 PM (CEST)

Alongside frustratingly slow action on climate change, in a matter of a few months at the outset of 2020, a dramatic, fast and widespread transformation of society occurred in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. In comparison, while climate science converges as never before regarding global warming, public opinion on climate change is fractured and collective action is slow. What happened here, and why are the two responses so markedly different? Applying Integral Theory to understand the differences between COVID-19 and climate change, in this presentation I harvest lessons from the pandemic to arrive at a novel perspective on why responses to the two crises have been so distinct. Join me on a deep look into four psychological aspects that made the coronavirus accessible and actionable in a way that climate change is not:

1) the complexity of meaning-making required to galvanize behaviour change,

2) the psychological distance that complicates buy-in and ownership over actions,

3) the approach to cross-domain and transdisciplinary responses, and

4) the salience of the issue being seen as worthy of immediate attention. Through discussion, we will consider these in turn and discuss how they compound and synergize, providing some clarity on the effective drivers and the tenacious sticking-points for transformations to sustainability.

LEADERSHIP AND POWER SHIFT

Diana Claire Douglas & Christiane Seuhs-Schoeller

Spiralling through Love and Power

6:00 PM – 7:30 PM (CEST)

The evolutionary drive towards Interdependence counters fragmentation and duality caused by the separation of Love and Power.” What happens when Love and Power are experienced as One? Using Spiral Dynamics as the structure, participants will experience Love, then Power, then LoveandPower through the spiral. How does this Love shift and Power shift inform us individually and collectively in how we take action in the world?

7:30 PM – 8:00 PM (CEST)

Building Blocks of the PowerShift Economy

8:00 PM – 9:30 PM (CEST)

First Tom Thomison, Founding Member of encode.org, will talk about how now even more than just a few months ago, we see how our economic systems have outlived their usefulness. They are taking their toll on people and the planet. Humanity’s consciousness is evolving – a deep yearning for collaboration calls for a shift from “power over” to “power with”, for being powerful together in service of the greater whole. But what is that power shift? And which role does the economy play in all this? Learn which 3 foundational building blocks – when put together – form a broader, power shifted economy: Power shifted legal and capital structures: moving from subservient entitlement as an employee to earning a living through ownership and the investment of energy, time and talent in purposes people are aligned with and care about. Power shifted organizational structures: organizing purpose-oriented work with distributed authority and dynamic steering; holarchic, autonomous and transparent. Power shifted people structures: encouraging and supporting independent agents of purpose to find and engage with purposes they care about and catalyzing the economies of scale with the groups of purpose agents’ purchasing power for social benefits, insurance and investment programs, training programs and much more.

Following this, Joost Schouten, Founding Member of PowerShift Capital, will look into how current investment and capitalization structures are incapable of supporting today’s necessary shift in our economical system. He will be pointing out how our commercial organisations are capable of tremendous impact, yet this impact often is not a reflection of the values and needs of those working in the organisation or those impacted by the organisation. More often than not the impact is experienced as decremental to the societies they function in. This is a symptom of mismatched incentive structures. The incentives of a few owners of the organisation and their ability to drive its course versus the incentives of all those contributing to and affected by the organisation.

In this session Joost will explore these incentives and some solutions around how to align these opposing forces. And how we can harness the tremendous ability to impact our societies with commercial organisations in a way that is reflective of its collective needs. He will invite participants to explore how funding organisations can be a catalyst for a purpose and value driven society.

INTEGRAL RESEARCH

Tom Murray, Geoff Fitch

Is wisdom “the simplicity on the other side of complexity?”

6:00 PM – 7:30 PM (CEST)

Integralists, developmentalists, spiritualists, and leadership gurus love the idea of “the simplicity on the other side of complexity.” We will draw on an emerging model of “wisdom skills,” “complexity capacity,” and “spiritual clarity” to engage us in reflecting on the nuances of this idea—when is it useful vs. wishful thinking? Tom will present a model that emphasizes the equal importance of learning (increased complexity) and unlearning (releasing complexity)—which draws from the STAGES model. This will orient us to a conversational and embodied dive into the relationship between ascending and descending modes of wisdom and ego maturity.

Communicating the Climate Crisis by Design (Acad)

8:00 PM – 9:30 PM (CEST)

As author and editor of a book on integral sustainable design, we each have 13 years of experience in the scholarship of applying integral thought. Recently, we have delivered numerous presentations on “Solving the Climate Crisis by Design”. This paper presents four different models for disseminating this scholarship and research to academic and crossover communities. Audiences in Lebanon, Scotland, Australia, and USA consisted of design and construction schools, building science educators and a mixed audience at a spirituality and peace center. Models included two different 4-quadrant approaches, a Big-3 approach, and a format where worldview levels dominate. Each presents problems and building/urban solutions. From different integral framings, the climate crisis looks radically different and its solutions also vary. Presentation design and scholarship about this work are guided by an IMP with reflective practitioner (Schon) and emergent learning (Darling) methods. In other words, we present a narrative of 40-60 minutes, informed by a history of scholarship where an integral approach informs the content, the message, the structure of the talks, its delivery, and how we assess and improve this dissemination over time. We learned to only speak integral to integral, that too much bad news activates a collective shadow, that green values and amber science miss the opportunity to enroll the prerational level, that a multilevel message is needed, and much more.

Integral Filmmaking: Dimensions of Heroes Journeys

6:00 PM – 7:30 PM (CEST)

The classical map of Hero’s Journey (Campbell-Lukas-Vogler) is uncompleted. It works rather well, but only in a certain (mythological) domain which is unreasonably spread over by numerous fallowers as universal structure for whole human life. The integral cartography of the hero’s journey is connected with the ancient shamanic three-dimensional chart of reality with special emphasis on the four-quadrant middle world (human or existential domain). So, there exists three different kinds of the Hero’s journeys – Mythological (Submitting life energies), Existential (Growing Up), and Spiritual (Waking Up), – that have different textual, semantic and historical base, structure and meaning. Existential Hero’s journey can be further presented as six Journeys of the ways we grow in personal domain: Growing Up (vertical), Cleaning Up, Relating Up, Showing Up, Realizing Up, Centering Up. This provides new opportunities for understanding the filmmaking and the mechanisms of mass media and mass culture influence.

Embodied Creativity

8:00 PM – 9:30 PM (CEST)

Creativity does not have to be confined to the arts, it can be uniquely mobilized in the service of learning. This is how Gaia Orion likes to share her practice allying art-based learning and coaching. This 1h30m online art workshop will give you an opportunity to reconnect with your child’s spirit and put it to the service of your life right now. We have all been experiencing various levels of distress and anxiety with the recent global events. With creative tools, you are invited to go in, feel ‘what is’, and express it all in a visual form. If you find yourself stuck lately, if you need answers and clarity over a specific issue at a personal level or in your professional life, or if you just want to relax with a bit of fun, this session will be just what you need. We will “draw, paint, collage” (depending on what art supplies you have laying around at home) and then reflect on the ‘symbols’ created to gain insights about our present lives. No artistic experience is necessary to attend this workshop, all the contrary! The fresher your mind, the least you “know” about drawing, the more interesting the process will be for you.

Unique Self, a new narrative of identity, in a time between stories

6:00 PM – 7:30 PM (CEST)

In a time between worlds, how do we raise to the invitation of the moment and give birth to “the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible”? It all depends on how we will answer the question “who are we?” Today’s crisis is calling us to evolve how we respond to that question as a global community. The old narrative of separation won’t take us home. The Unique Self theory maps 4 distinct stations of self: Separate Self, True Self, Unique self, and evolutionary Unique Self. Through this journey, we realize that the goal of enlightenment is not to dissolve into an impersonal Oneness, but to emerge from it and to individuate as a unique expression of that One. As a Unique Self, each and every one of us has a unique perspective with the world that informs precisely the unique gifts we were born to give. Our unique gift is the original medicine that the world needs. Unique Self and Evolutionary Unique Self-consciousness emerge as we start bringing these gifts in synergy, as an act of love and service to the world, in Unique Self evolutionary partnerships.

Primal Dance – Awakening the 7 basic capacities

8:00 PM – 9:30 PM (CEST)

Primal Dance is a method for self-exploration and personal, and interpersonal development based on performing simple, primordial movements and gestures accompanied by specially selected ethnic and contemporary music to produce non-ordinary states of consciousness.
The method, developed by Argentinian psychologist Daniel Taroppio, uses a synthesis of Eastern traditions like the chakra system described in traditional yoga, Qi Gong and the modern Western psychological approaches to personal and transpersonal development (Wilber, Grof, etc.)
Its practice doesn’t require any dancing experience, as it does not consist of performing complicated choreographic movements but in harmonizing our energies through spontaneous, primordial or archetypal body movements, postures, gestures, and sounds.
Following the map of the chakra system, Primal Dance looks to harmonize and activate the bio-psycho-social and transpersonal capacities related to the different chakras. In its deepest form, Primal Dance is a moving meditation that helps us access in a systematic way higher, subtle and expansive states of consciousness.
In the session, we will work with highly experiential, individual and group exercises to explore, heal and unfold our innate capacities for basic trust, joy, personal power, emotive and affective expression, creativity, intuition, and transcendence.
