Workshop: Breakthrough!The Grit & Grace of Integral Practice
One of the most powerful and persistent ideas to emerge from the Integral movement is Integral Transformative Practice. In this workshop, we will go beyond the idea of ITP and anchor it in our collective experience. What does it take to get started, keep our practice going, and what are the fruits? Specific tools for achieving our goals in each essential line will be discussed and practiced: body, mind, the emotional life, its shadows and its pressing, often hidden gifts; and the spiritual line, in which we come to realize on a stable, ongoing basis who and what we are at the deepest level.
Workshop participants will walk away with new clarity, growing grit, and a palpable sense they are not alone, but riding a wave leading the way to a life that confronts, grapples with, and becomes the answer to the issues that plague us—a life in which we become the instruments of compassion, skillfulness, and creativity that our current Zeitgeist is calling us forth to embody.
