Integral Self-Management: Peace-based Development

Integral self-management is a method of integral development of human potential whose theoretical basis is the integral theory and other contributions such as those of David Hawkins, Gerardo Schmedling and Jeffery Martin; as well as disciplines such as the Enneagram and psychotherapy. Likewise, my therapeutic practice of more than a decade has allowed me to validate details for its maximum functionality.
The method is composed of 5 sequential stages referring to the relative aspect of human experience, and one element referring to the absolute aspect linked to the process called AWAKENING. These 5+1 stages allow the person to go through the pathways of integral development such as Growing, Awakening, Cleansing, Manifesting and Opening; in an efficient and fluid way, adding to this journey elements from human development protocols. This paper is entitled “Peace-Based Development” because the method places a primary value on the state of PEACE and GOD which is accessed through specific practices and included from the beginning and during each phase, in order to provide meaning and background to the relative process of human development.
We will also see the importance of recognizing the unique aspects of the participant as well as aligning their strengths and generating a sufficiently powerful and sustainable momentum that allows the transformation journey to be successfully completed, preventing the various practices from becoming diluted over time.

Gary Villar is an independent researcher in the field of human development and spirituality. Business administrator, Gestalt therapist, life coach and Enneagram instructor with training in Neurosciences, meditation and NLP. After 13 years accompanying integral development processes with individuals, couples and organizations, he designed the Integral Self-Management method based on integral theory and other significant contributions. He is an entrepreneur and he directs the School of Integral Self-Management.

Peace is built in the family
La paz se construye en familia

What if the conflicts, fights and misunderstandings that we have daily in our homes and relationships had an “obvious” but invisible cause for our current way of looking at the world and understanding peace?

What if this were the main dilemma? A continuous misunderstanding that leads us to perpetuate the problem instead of solving it?

The vast majority of us have been formatted practically from birth to compete, demand, fight and be right. In short, to participate in the world from the limited perspective of “this is right or this is wrong”. This disintegrating form is seen as so natural that very few times do we dare to question it and we take it for granted that “we are separated”.

In this conference/workshop we explore the landing of the comprehensive AQAL theory to parenting and family well-being. With intentional pragmatism I will show the ideas and tools emerging from my own practice and experience.

¿Y si los conflictos, las peleas, malos entendidos y desencuentros que diaramente tenemos en nuestros hogares, y relaciones tuvieran una causa “obvia” pero invisible para nuestra actual manera de mirar el mundo y comprender la paz?.

¿Y si este fuera el principal dilema?, una contínua malintepretación que nos lleva a perpetuar el problema en lugar de resolverlo?.

La gran mayoria de nosotros hemos sido formateados prácticamente desde nuestro nacimiento para competir, exigir, luchar y tener la razón. En resumen  para participar en el mundo desde la limitada mirada de “esto está bien ó esto está mal”.  Esta forma desintegradora es vista tan natural que muy pocas veces nos animamos a cuestionarla y damos por hecho que “estamos separados”.

En esta conferencia/taller exploramos el aterrizaje de la teoria integral AQAL a la crianza y el bien-estar en familia. Con un pragmatismo intencionado mostraré las ideas y herramientas emergente de mi propia práctica y experiencia.

Upgrade Your AQALWARE and Be the Peace You Want to See

It seems that it is increasingly difficult to live together peacefully, due to the challenge of polarizing events that constantly confront us with each other. Global conflicts such as Covid 19, the war in Ukraine or the cultural struggles that are taking place on social networks, condition us to react from our most primitive impulsiveness: attack, defense or flight.

What to do to meet that challenge? Ken Wilber proposes the evolution of consciousness, because as you advance in it you are more inclusive, respectful and loving. To this end, he provides us with his brilliant maps that illuminate those hidden paths, along with useful tools like his Integral Mindfulness.

In line with this, I want to present, at IEC 2022, a newly created technology called Aqalware Update (AW). With it, we intervene in the underlying structures of the quadrants and levels, to integrate and transcend both those polarizing challenges that prevent us from being the peace that we want to see in the world; as, the evolutionary anchors that delay the evolution of consciousness.
AW is based on the Big Mind method of Zen master Genpo Roshi.

Pareciera que cada vez es más difícil convivir pacíficamente, debido al desafío de eventos polarizantes que nos enfrentan permanentemente unos con otros. Conflictos globales como la Covid 19, la guerra en Ucrania o las luchas culturales que se libran en las redes sociales, nos condicionan a reaccionar desde nuestra impulsividad más primitiva: ataque, defensa o huida.

¿Qué hacer para afrontar ese desafío? Ken Wilber propone la evolución de la conciencia, porque a medida que se avanza en ella se es más inclusivo, respetuoso y amoroso. Para este fin, él nos alcanza sus mapas geniales que iluminan esos recónditos caminos, junto a herramientas útiles como su Mindfulness Integral.

En línea con ello, deseo presentar, en el IEC 2022, una tecnología de reciente creación denominada Actualización de Aqalware (AW). Con ella se interviene en las estructuras subyacentes de los cuadrantes y niveles, para integrar y trascender, tanto aquellos desafíos polarizantes que nos impiden ser la paz que queremos ver en el mundo; como, las anclas evolutivas que retrasan la evolución de la conciencia.
AW está basada en el método Big Mind del maestro zen Genpo Roshi.

Decisions of love in times of war
Decisiones de amor en tiempos de guerra

What decisions are made in times of war to avoid becoming anchored in resentment, suffering and destruction? Colombia, my country of origin, is a country that has lived more than 6 decades in war, it has the paradox of being a country in which various proposals towards peace have been organized. In the midst of conflict, inequality, marginalization and structural violence, a large multi sectoral population has chosen an active and non-violent peaceful path towards peace, sowing visions of peace in different contexts of national daily life. I see this as a manifestation of the omnipresent force of love that favors the unfolding of life in its maximum potential.

I join the seeding of world peace, inviting you to bring seeds of imperfect peace and positive peace into your daily life based on the love that helps evolve.

Initially, I will share an omniscient view of peace decisions that a large part of the Colombian population has made in their daily lives and that has given them the impetus to move forward, opening paths for life and for the evolution of consciousness.

In the practical part I will invite you to explore and make deep decisions of reconciliation in the face of the legacy of war, based on the love that helps you evolve. It will be an opportunity to transcend some of the internal conflicts that emerge with it and manifest in the four quadrants of our experience.

¿Qué decisiones se toman en tiempos de guerra para evitar anclarse en el resentimiento, el sufrimiento y la destrucción? Colombia, mi país de origen, es un país que ha vivido más de 6 décadas en guerra, posee la paradoja de ser un país en el que se han organizado diversas propuestas hacia la paz. En medio del conflicto, la desigualdad, la marginación y la violencia estructural, una gran población multisectorial hemos elegido un camino pacífico activo y no violento hacia la paz sembrando visiones de paz en diferentes contextos de la vida cotidiana nacional. Esto lo veo como una manifestación de la fuerza omnipresente del amor que favorece el despliegue de la vida en su máximo potencial.
Me uno a la siembra de la paz mundial, invitándote a llevar semillas de paz imperfecta y paz positiva a tu vida cotidiana basándote en el amor que ayuda a evolucionar.
Inicialmente, compartiré una mirada omnicuadrante sobre decisiones de paz que una parte amplia de la población colombiana ha tomado en su cotidianidad y que le ha dado impulso para seguir adelante, abriendo caminos para la vida y para la evolución de la consciencia.
En la parte práctica invitaré a explorar y tomar profundas decisiones de reconciliación ante el legado de la guerra, basándote en el amor que ayuda a evolucionar. Será una oportunidad para trascender algunos de los conflictos internos que emergen con ella y se manifiestan en los cuatro cuadrantes de nuestra experiencia.
