Paradiso Integrale and the Power of Relationship

. Welcome to our blog! We are so happy you have found us and our website! And we are even more happy that we have found YOU, dear reader and listener! We are looking forward to a lively exchange of experience, knowledge, learning. We are all together called in this specific period of time to evolve, to grow up in order to really thrive in our lives. On the basis of thriving there are the life conditions we are living in. There are all these huge global problems today, like global warming, fracking, radioactive leaks, poisoning of the ground, GMO crops and industrialized foods, and many many more. We are trying to get hold of these problems, at least some of us, and some country governments take some halfhearted measurements. We believe, if we only could get these counter measurements in place, we could solve the problem. But this is not the case! Unless we change [...]

Sex, Purpose, Love: Couples in Integral Relationships

A conversation with the author of the book Martin Ucik The ideas of creating robots for sex seem to somehow make obsolete the question: how are sex and relationships, connected with a deeper purpose valid tools for creating a better world? What would you prefer? Creating a better world by couples in intimate relationships which combine sexuality and a common purpose. Or sex-robots as the inevitable idea in a technology obsessed humanity? I don’t know you, but only the idea of sex-robots make me shiver and envision a world where the isolation and separation has arrived at the extreme. If the biological need for sex doesn’t lead anymore to look for other people to create bonding but just to a machine which can give you some mechanical satisfaction - how can we survive as humans, let alone THRIVE? In my opinion this leads to a destruction from the inside out, by messing [...]

The World of Men is Dangerous! (by Mark Davenport)

“Get ready.  They’re waiting for us,” Heidi brusquely called me. I grumpily began to respond by quickly ending a sentence I was typing, making a trip to the bathroom, and changing into appropriate clothes. She had already exited when I left the house so I took a shortcut through the parking lot. Dashing through an empty space, a van with two men in it rushed into that space, pinning me between their bumper and a cement wall with not more than an inch of wiggle room for my legs. Frozen, I glanced to the driver who held up both palms to me as if to reassure me that he was as surprised as I was.  After a few seconds I began to inch my way forward out of the way while he continued to stand on the brakes with his hands up, never backing away nor even touching the gear shift lever.  Exiting the tight space I [...]

What about getting older? – Integral Ageing at the Integral European Conference

Racism - sexism -- AGEISM!? You recognize it when it comes to you, with 40 (when people tell you you should better buy expensive cosmetics for not getting wrinkles), with 50 (when we women go into menopause: no fertility - does it mean we are useless?), with 60 when people consider you to be old and with 70 when you yourself begin to think that you are old and and and..... What is the problem about getting older? Mainly probably the fear of old age and suffering which poisons our time when we are younger and hinders us to be fully alive. It is not really the age which creates us problems, but our expectations about our life and the expressed expectations of younger generations about what we should be. All that combined with an insufficient support which, if ever, is concerned only about our bodies and they try to keep it alive by all means - [...]

Getting to Know Each Other – with Modern Technology – by Heidi Hornlein

Technology is advancing quickly, solving many problems, creating new ones - and allowing us humans to get to know each other across our national and even continental borders. After Skype and Google Hangouts there is a new technology available which has the potential to make friends between complete strangers by direct interaction. It is ancient wisdom that fear is nurtured by ignorance, by telling ourselves stories about people and things which lack a reality check. Humans can kill other humans only when they don’t see them as equal to themselves, when they believe them to be in a certain way which seems to give them permission to treat them however they want. The very best antidote is getting to know your enemy - so they can become humans like yourself and even friends. Countries like France and Germany introduced an exchange project for students after WWII to bridge the gap and make sure that they wouldn’t go [...]
