Ken-Wilber: Integral Reflection on Europe

Integral Reflections on Europe‘ takes a hard look at several recent crises in the European Union – particularly terrorism and immigration – and gives an Integral overview of each, along with diagnoses and specific recommendations for handling them.

This is a genuinely important topic, because the European Union faces a severe challenge with these many crises, and only, I believe, an Integral approach can truly and deeply alleviate the problems. This presentation explains why in vivid detail.

About Ken Wilber:

Ken Wilber is one of the most important philosophers in the world today. He is the most widely translated academic writer in America, with 25 books translated into some 30 foregin languages. Ken Wilber currently lives in Denver, Colorado, and is still active as a philosopher, author and teacher, with all of his major publications still in print (something of a record). In 2007 Wilber co-founded Integral Life, a social media-hub dedicated to sharing the integral vision with the world wide community, as well as, connecting both laypersons and practitioners, while also documenting and catalyzing the progress of the integral movement. Located at www.IntegralLife.com, it contains, among many other items, weekly dialogues between Ken and the world’s leading thinkers. In 2014 Wilber co-founded Source Integral and began developing the Integral Society initiative, which in collaboration with recognized global experts, will demonstrate how to develop human societies in the most comprehensive manner possible. The first product is the Ukraine Project, to be released this year.

Stanislav Grof (Skype), Erica McKenzie, Ted Esser, Katie Mottram, Rozalia Kovacs Napier: Making Spiritual Experiences Acceptable and Legal

Spiritual Experiences are often “outlawed” in our modern Western culture, because we lack the experience, understanding and background to properly hold them. This becomes especially obvious in times of spiritual emergence when life-transforming spiritual experiences emerge and often need support for a healthy integration into the Self.

Sometimes these look similar to mental disorders that make traditional mental health professionals regard it as pathology. Moreover, mental illness might also be an attempt of the psyche to grow towards wholeness through temporary disintegration but if we suppress the process it gets stuck.

The International Spiritual Emergence Network (ISEN) is a collaborative platform that assists networks around the world that offer compassionate and expert support to those who understand their experiences to be a spiritual crisis, rather than a mental illness. Medical professionals and health care workers also should be trained to do so. Grof and ISEN offer fresh approaches to these issues and riddles.

About Stanislav Grof:

Stanislav Grof, M.D., Ph.D. is a psychiatrist with more than fifty years experience researching the healing and transformative potential of non-ordinary states of consciousness. His groundbreaking theories influenced the integration of Western science with his brilliant mapping of the transpersonal dimension.

On October 5, 2007 Dr. Grof received the prestigious VISION 97 award granted by the Foundation of Dagmar and Vaclav Havel in Prague.

He is one of the founders and chief theoreticians of Transpersonal Psychology and received an Honorary Award for major contributions to and development of the field of Transpersonal Psychology from the Association for Transpersonal Psychology in 1993. Dr. Grof is also the founding President of the International Transpersonal Association (ITA) and was its President for many years.

Thomas-Hübl: Collective Trauma - from Integration to Insight

In order to reinvent Europe we need to look at what is preventing intercultural harmony and unity. This includes consciously dealing with historically accumulated pain, as well as present tensions in our own lives and in society.

The current crisis has woken us up, giving a chance to transform into a higher unity – not only politically, but in its spirit and soul.
Thomas Hübl will share his rich experience from dealing with cultural shadow in the process of spiritual awakening and personality development. He will help the participants to reflect and work on these issues, not only with theoretical reflections on what should be done, but by creating a field of actual experience that will empower everybody to authentic action and transformation.
With Thomas we join today’s edge of the collective spiritual awakening and personality growth work by utilizing the collective field to rewrite our common future as Europeans together and beyond in the world as a whole.

About Thomas-Hübl:

Thomas Hübl is a contemporary spiritual teacher, who practices mysticism in his own life, and also imparts it to others, in a manner that is entirely in keeping with the times.
His work integrates the essence of the great traditions of wisdom with scientific knowledge and his own personal experience. His work, which he executes with uncompromising clarity, leads to the birth of new ‘we-cultures’. He has the special gift of truly understanding people and being able to apply the timeless knowledge that has been revealed to him when engaging with them – enabling people to gain a deeper dimension of self-awareness and responsibility.

Annette-Kaiser: Rooted in Silence - Moved by Love

Europe faces many challenges at the present moment, being part of a world in transition. Looking at it in depth, we recognize an evolutionary crisis. In essence it’s about a shift in consciousness from separation into Oneness as Not-Two.
Being rooted in silence and moved by love we can find solutions to the problems we have today in Europe. Each moment is an invitation for all of us to the power of being a conscious human being, that is able to co-create a new Europe – a new world – rooted in Prior Unity. We begin right now!

About Annette-Kaiser:

She is devoted to transconfessional and transcultural evolutionary spirituality, which implies an open aware state of being as a natural expression of an integral way of living. This is a leading into Universal Spirituality and Universal Cooperation as Not-Two. She sees the 21st century as a call for us to recognise itself as inseparably One, co-creating a new culture in collective wisdom and love of One Heart.

 

“The Integral European Conference is providing one of the most sophisticated, up-to-date, genuinely Integral (not pretenders), most exciting source of fundamental and leading-edge Integral ideas and practices to be found anywhere in the world.”
