There are three ways to approach the mystery of the divine. The first practice is prayer. The second is meditation. And the third, and most important, is conversation. ~Rumi

A Message From Your Hosts

Thanks for checking in! Our fifth gathering was a great success and we are pondering the next incarnation of the Integral Living Room.

The three of us have worked together for over ten years, leading many significant Integral events, including the Integral Institute Seminars of 2004–2007, the Integral Spiritual Experiences of 2009–2012, and the What Next Integral Conference over the New Year’s holiday four years ago.

But nothing has been more fruitful—and fun—than the Integral Living Room gatherings which we’ve conducted in beautiful Boulder, Colorado.

As you can see from the material on this site, with each Integral Living Room event we have tried something a little different. Some aspects have worked (amazingly!) in all four quadrants. And some things were less successful. That’s the way the creativity of the Kosmos does its thing—by prototyping, getting feedback, refining and trying again. This creative process is how we evolve culture together.

So we’re excited to do it again, to build on what caught fire and to try out some new ideas to make it even better. The Integral Living Room is a gathering we not only want to lead, but attend and enjoy ourselves. As old friends and collaborators, the three of us found it especially gratifying as we were catalyzed to a whole new level of intimacy, vulnerability, and mutual trust.

We hope you can join us next time to hang out with some very special friends, old and new, in a space that lets us all go as deep and wide as our hearts and minds allow.

In the meantime scroll down for five years of Integral Living Room community podcasts and blogposts on topics ranging from politics and religion to science and culture.

Diane, Terry and Jeff

Your Hosts

We’re thrilled to announce that Integral pandit extraordinaire Ken Wilber will be joining us in the Integral Living Room! If, like most of us, you have been inspired by Ken’s brilliant insights and writing, you will love the chance to hang out with him in this informal setting. Ken is a delight in person, and will share his latest thinking (including his up-to-the-minute writing on Volume II of the Kosmos Trilogy), answer questions, and schmooze on any topic the group is engaging.

It’s a rare chance to get up close and personal with the man who has sparked the modern integral movement and is still its leading light.

Ken Wilber is the most widely translated academic writer in America, with 25 books, translated into some 30 foreign languages, including the recent Integral Spirituality. Ken is an internationally acknowledged leader and the preeminent scholar of the Integral stage of human development. He is the founder of Integral Institute, Inc. and the co-founder of Integral Life, Inc.
