An Experiential Vision Quest Workshop
In this workshop, he will begin with an inspirational talk about the individual quest for purpose and vision and why that is important in our times. This will be based upon his many years of being a vision quest guide in the wilderness and a longtime practitioner of meditation and interior prayer. He will lecture for a bit, and this will be followed by either a 30- or 40-minute meditation using one of iAwake’s powerful brainwave entrainment audio tracks that can place people in a state of consciousness in which the wisdom voice and the interior voice can speak quite clearly. This will be followed by breakout groups, in which our participants talk about their experience, and then we will come together for a final Q&A session and a discussion about whatever participants would like to share about their vision quest meditation.
John has found in his work and personal life that often we don’t get the answers because we don’t ask the right questions. In this workshop, participants will be instructed to ask Spirit, or Higher Power, “What is my life path?” And for those of us, who have already had that initiation, the question will be, “Is there anything I need to do or not do to enable me to walk my vision more effectively and with greater wisdom and compassion?”
This workshop will be an opportunity to use powerful, specific-state experiences to foster spiritual and emotional growth and health.
John Dupuy, MA, is the founder of Integral Recovery®, author of the award-winning book Integral Recovery: A Revolutionary Approach to the Treatment of Alcoholism and Addiction, and CEO of iAwake Technologies. John is an experienced vision quester, wilderness guide, and has guided hundreds of students on their own vision quest journey. He is also a pioneer of guiding questers in online Vision Quests, using iAwake’s sound technology to facilitate altered-consciousness breakthroughs.
Web3 and the Holoverse for an Integral Renaissance
A major focus of our integral approach to the techno-economics emerging now as Web3 is in applying integral theory, developmental psychology and a post SDi philosophy which has come together as the Holoverse alternative to the Metaverse (which can be seen as the dominance of the descenders). By innovating novel Integral data science to Web3 in a way that definitely births the Holoverse vision needed to reformat enough societal-infrastructure leverage points (in crypto, P2P nature of markets, DAO self governance movements, human factors depth UX, open technocratic informatics sovereignty, consumer data autonomy) to allow for integral to freely flourish. As of now Integral is repressed and cannot come into being beyond a closed commons. We can effort all we want, yet we will fail without these key technological doors opening.
Founder of Enaxion, InterEnactive and the Bay Area’s first Integral Commons (2002-2004; also first in the USA), Farsam Shadab has taken a background in Cognitive Science as well as 20 years of Integral studies (both academic and applied) into the world’s first full-realized Integral platform for “Holonomic” interactivity that marries decentralization tools (Holochain) with holistic AR. In 1998, Farsam also seeded Jimmy Wales with his first concepts for what would become known as Wikipedia.
