What is Integral Living?

The question of how to live fully resonates with any of us who are paying attention to what is happening in our lives and the world. We live in a period of complex, fast-paced change that has many of us literally chasing the tail of our own busy lives. We often ask ourselves if we are really making any progress towards the life we truly want to live.

If you think briefly about your job, what motivates you, how you communicate with others, your exercise and nutrition, your spiritual practices (or perhaps lack thereof), your friends, your relationships, what you read, etc.... do these things all make sense to you in a way that feels like you are living an authentic expression of who you are, or who you want to be?

If not, Integral Life can help you better understand your life and how you experience it. We strive to enable you to take full advantage of what is emerging in the world for yourself, your family and friends, your career and the contributions you desire to make to a smarter, more considerate human experience on the planet. These are cutting edge conversations that did not exist five years ago.

Living integrally means a life where things finally make sense through broader and deeper awareness. This means that you will likely constrict less about what’s challenging you and clearly identify the opportunities that are emerging at the leading edge of human imagination. Integral awareness allows you to expand and deepen your experience of every moment, make sense of your world and your relationship to it, and to organize all the fragmentation of modern living in a way that doesn't exclude any part of you. An integral life is a way to process your own life experience that includes everything you are while leaving nothing out. Imagine living in a state of self-awareness such that in every moment you are capable of saying "Here I am, fully present. I know who I am in this moment and why."

This is what integral awareness can do for the life you lead right now, just as it has for some of the most successful people in the world, from the world's most respected academics and spiritual teachers to Hollywood producers; from journalists to heads of state; from university professors to yoga dads. If you want to join the conversations taking place at the Integral Life, we welcome you, and look forward to getting to know you.

If you want to make a living doing what inspires you, deepen your relationships with the ones you love, sort out what’s important to you from the overload of voices that vie for your attention and feel a connection to something larger than yourself, dive into Integral Life’s weekly media releases or sample one of the IL Presents web courses and DVD sets we have created with the brightest and most innovative commentators on the planet.

This is the next level. The next stage of human evolution.

This is humanity 2.0.

Welcome to Integral Life!

Rather infomercial like but maybe that's because I am just tipping over that hill. I think it is dilemma to have a marketing campaign that will appeal and at the same time try to convey a challenge to the culture whose medium you need to use to convey it. "The medium is the message" Marshall McLuhan.

I love it, finally a commercial for integral.

While I like the site revamp and the emphasis on a communal forum as well as individual blogs, I felt that this video is controversial at best, and a little too market-oriented and product-selling at worst. As someone who has read Wilber and is enthusiastic about integral thought and evolutionary spirituality, I feel it does not truly represent me. I love the team behind integral life, but feel this was not the best way to market it to newcomers. Or old comers. Like myself!

For more information, here is a good, albeit critical perspective via Duff McDuffee's wall that I found to have some very important points:

We definitely share a 'We' space on this, shamansun.

A little bit o putty and a little bit o paint make you look like what you aint.
