Integral Russia: Art, Thought & Practice

The Russian-speaking spiritual, cultural, and intellectual milieu, though historically over-represented with thousands of thinkers, artists and visionaries, remains a terra incognita for the rest of the broader integral community. This milieu’s feature is its integrative nature that claims universality and seeks to reveal a cohesive and non-contradictive “theory of everything” as well as to transform the reality. Our intention is to present this milieu to the integrally-informed audience, making them aware of the possible Russian role in the global integral enterprise and sharing our experience of some integral projects in today’s Russia.
