Integral and Metamodern Politics

The “Leadership for Transition (LiFT) – Politics” project is a EU-funded Strategic Partnership (Erasmus+) exploring political innovations and pioneers in collaborative, co-creative deliberation and decision-making based on integral and meta-modern paradigms. In the first part of the workshop, we will share some of LiFT’s approaches and insights with regard to the foundations, principles and resources of integral/meta-modern politics, as well as methodological tools used for supporting next-stage political cultures and practices.
The second part of the workshop will be interactive and co-creative, inviting participants to contribute to LiFT’s process of mapping integral/meta-modern political innovations from different contexts and to test out pioneering approaches and tools in a lab setting.

Complexity from the Inside

We hear a lot about the increase of complexity and the need to manage organisations in a VUCA world. Complexity theory/science is getting a lot more attention in academia and business in recent years. But what about the inner dimension, how could we connect these concepts and sometimes abstract notions to an embodied experience?

The focus of this experiential process (workshop) is to actually embody different levels of complexity. We explore our ability to be at ease (or not) with complexity and to observe/perceive what occurs in our different bodies (physical and energetic bodies). We will also explore complexity as experienced from within different development stages/value systems. Finally, we exchange our different insights for further meaning-making and scaffolding, both individually and what that could mean for our collective operating in the world.
