    Todd,

    Thanks for the referal to Brett Thomas' site.  I will take a look

    We will connect on the phone it sounds like,

    But would like to keep open a converrsation in this forum about integral aspects of community.

    Could you share your integral approach to dance and community work?

    Anyone else out there who wants to discuss/explore integral implications of community?

    John

    John,

    I am sorry to be so late in responding, I have been on the road.

    Personnaly, I use these tools and practices within  group facilitation, as a participant and in one on one coaching.   I  read subtle energies and use both appreciative inquiry and intuition to help me understandand honor the reality within which my clients exist , their culture, types and states of consciousness, their own developmental path etc which helps me to adjust my approach in any moment or on a given day. 

    Locally, we have a community of practice of people who have been trained in a principle-based psychology known as "health realization"  This approach is very aligned with the "big mind" process as I understand it.  The people who participate are homemakers, childcare providers, community activisits, a local judge, health care providers, teachers, headstart outreach staff etc..  We are using this approach within healthcare and human service organizations and with pretty oppressed communities. We will pilot a school-wide approach with a local middle school this fall training faculty, students and parents in the understanding of mind, thought and consciousness.  We are very excited.

    I agree that the Healthy Communities movement is not very integral, there are individual leaders within the movement that certainly are, but the  institutional power of healthcare in this movement is a huge barrier.

    Becky

    Hi Becky,

    Really fascinating work! I would love to hear more about the details. I will contact you via your email, if I can figure out the private contact avenue of this site.

    On line, however, since the topic of this thread is "integral approaches to community", I would be interested in your framing of your approach in the context of a social holon, and more broadly, AQAL.  I can see it in what you already have said, but it would assist in comparing more apples to apples with some of the integral approaches to community which I pursue.

    John

    Hi All -

    As I stated last week, I inteded to put the model plus the presentation up this week.  That would actually take up quite a bit of space Surprise [:O] and so anyone who is interested in the powerpoint that I used to explain how to begin to apply the model to health programs can simply e-mail me and I will send you the power point presentation via e-mail.

    Hope that works!

    Todd
