An Update on Ken Wilber's Health
Over the past few years there has been a tremendous outpouring of compassion and concern from the integral community for Ken Wilber's wellbeing. As many people know, Ken has been dealing with some health-related challenges in recent years that have impacted his ability to show up for public appearances, and worse, has forced him to take a brief sabbatical from his writing. In this clip from his 2012 What Next keynote address, Ken offers us a brief update about his health and makes an incredibly exciting announcement:
Ken is writing again!
Watch this free video from the 2012 What Next Media Collection to learn what Ken is up to these days....
This clip is excerpted from the 2012 What Next Media Collection, and is part of Ken's full 2 hour 15 minute keynote address. What kind of future we are imagining for ourselves? For the integral movement? For the impact of the integral vision on our shared future? These are precisely the sorts of questions that prompted us to hold the What Next Conference this past New Years. After almost 10 years of the online integral movement, we wanted to see what the integral vision can really offer to the world and to our rapidly evolving cultural conversation, and wanted to create a space where we could come together as a community and look forward to all the wonderful possibilities waiting for us to enact.

One of the greatest highlights of the recent What Next conference was a very special 3-hour tribute to Ken Wilber on New Year's Eve, where many of us who have been so touched by Ken's work had the opportunity to express our love, admiration, and gratitude. Today we thought we would share one of our favorite moments with you all: Kermit the Frog's tribute to Ken Wilber.
Out of the several hundred hours of Ken dialogues we've shared in the last eight years, it seems fair enough to say that at least 99% fall into the realm of Ken speaking on quadrants, or levels, or states, or some other theoretical aspect of Integral living. Given this history, we assume that you might be ready for something completely different. Well, if so, the hour long segment you're about to engage is simply one of the most raw and most intimate set of personal reflections we've ever published—and we suspect you'll enjoy this change of pace as much as we did....
For someone who likes to talk so much about spirituality, we don't get to hear about Ken Wilber's personal spiritual life very often. In this extraordinary clip, Ken offers an intimate recounting of his own subtle state experiences and spiritual practices, past and present, offering us a unique insight into Ken's ongoing spiritual life.
Ken Wilber is the founder of Integral Institute and the co-founder of Integral Life. He is an internationally acknowledged leader and the preeminent scholar of the Integral stage of human development. His many books, all of which are still in print, can be found at Amazon.com. Some of his more popular books include Integral Spirituality; No Boundary; Grace and Grit; Sex, Ecology, Spirituality; and the "everything" books: A Brief History of Everything (one of his largest selling books) and A Theory of Everything (probably the shortest introduction to his work).
