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 [...]

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 - [...]

Stop the RealtionshiT – Grow Your Relations

More than 50 % of the Western population as divorced or never married. The good old relationship which lasted “until death do us part” hardly exists any more in the Western world - and if a couple succeeds to live the whole life together than they have or done a lot of work to grow together or they leed a relationship which doesn’t really merit this name.   I believe that everyone who has reached a certain age, let’s say 40, has lived one or more periods of “relationshiT”, periods of anger, disappointment, insatisfaction or worse. Some people sort of accept that life is like this and go on as a victim with no hope for a better future by tolerating what is done to them - or what they themselves do to others. Some people chose to separate or divorce and to find a different mate with whom the same game most probably goes on again. [...]

Transform Your Relationships – with CONJUNCTIVE COMMUNICATION

Why would you you feel a need to transform your relationships? Our human relationships can grow and thrive when we find a way to be together with respect and appreciation - AND when we are able to communicate with each other in ways which create communion instead of separation by feeling not understood. Most intimate relationships and non break apart not because of missing love or attraction, but because of missing communication skills which make us end up in an eternal downward spiral of disappointment, anger, desperation - which finally destroys the very basis of the relationship.   Ask yourself the question: how did I resolve the latest conflict between myself and xyz? Was I able to resolve it? Or is it still latently present even though we are “going on well” together? What did you do in the face of the conflict? Did you run away? Or did you talk about it? And if so, how [...]

Competition as only drive for evolution?

My husband told me about a thread in facebook where  someone  presented some ideas - and then this tread was taken over by men who were fighting about who was better and more right than the other - and the sense of the discussion was completely lost in the battle of predominancy.   Nothing unusual, you might say. But there is a BUT. The people involved claim to be “highly evolved” in the “integral state of consciousness” and on the “leading edge of our present culture”.   Wow! Do they really believe that about themselves? Don’t they instead behave like humans have behaved for thousands of years? The fight for “being the boss” and dim down the others under MY power? If not physical power, it has become the power of the mind, the power of knowing more - all still used in the very old ways of putting oneself on the pedestal and devaluating others. Far [...]

Integral Flow Therapy – an experiential way to grow

Talking about RELATIONSHIPS: Are your relationships in a flow? Are they easygoing, smooth and satisfying? And how is your relationship to yourself? These are the topics we often talk about here in this blog. To create really good relationships with others necessitates to have a REALLY good relationship with ourselves and from there go out into the world. My friend Bence Ganti is really successful with his "Flow Therapy", which is not really a therapy for when you are not well, but it is a process for growing up and waking up. As you know, we are working on the same subject but with different methods.  Interesting to watch others and how they do their work (I participated in one of his workshops which was great) Check out the website of the Integral Academy in Budapest HERE
