Awakening Global Integral In A Post-Pandemic World

What can voices from the Global South teach us about the potential of a post-pandemic world? How does integralism integrate ways of knowing from diverse cultures? The decline of Western dominance has been underway for decades, and the pandemic has only accelerated the process. In this workshop, spiritual and community leaders from across the globe–Africa, Southasia, Oceania–join us live to speak about their integral visions for a new global future. Each presenter will present themselves, their thoughts on the post-pandemic world, and offer a question to the IEC audience. After these short presentations, we will facilitate an emergent dialogue between the audience and the panelists to explore the potential of a real global integral awakening.

For the past five years, One World in Dialogue has been amplifying the voices of integrally informed spiritual leaders, activists, and changemakers from around the world—with a particular emphasis on the Global South. Created by Dr. Elizabeth Debold, and joined by Dr. Thomas Steininger, One World aspires to expand our understanding of what is integral so that new epistemologies, spiritualities, perspectives, and rationalities can be honored on their own terms, and not just put into a Western model, so that we can create a polyphonic and synergetic whole.

I am vitally interested in creating We Spaces where contradictions and differences can be held in an integrative wholeness–from this something new and unexpected can emerge. I founded One World in Dialogue to create spaces where human beings from around the globe can meet and integrate perspectives. As a developmental psychologist, I am thrilled by the “simplicity on the other side of complexity” that makes it possible to hold complexity in a new synthesis. This is what One World explores.
