This is one of four initial threads of the Integral International Development Center - aka INTEGRAL WITHOUT BORDERS - that will go live soon.

The initial four
discussion threads will be on:

1.   Integral theory (with some reference to international development)
2.   Integral praxis (i.e. theory and practice) related specifically to international development
3.    for beginners to Integral International Development
4.    contemplative practices (we may not activate this thread right away, but want it to be here for the future)

The Co Directors of this Center are Gail Hochachka and Paul van Schaik.

A thread for those new to Integral Theory, 19 Apr 2007 21:59:25 GMTee28e699-b6ce-41f9-9b68-f4b3d2b14a5b:21878drishti3 discussion thread will focus on Integral Theory and the Integral Approach in more introductory terms, for those newly into this exploration. We will also begin to work with how an Integral Approach can be applied in international development.
Social Holons, 28 Apr 2007 14:12:11 GMTee28e699-b6ce-41f9-9b68-f4b3d2b14a5b:22101Teilhard2 everyone,

I thought the stream on Social Holons was so important that it needed its own thread.  Agree Emine? 

It's great to be here and to have a place where we can spitfire words at each other - in lieu of being warmly in the same room as we were in Perpignan - but I guess this is what we'll need to work with for now.

This is a carry-over of our off-line discussion from the past several weeks.  What I'd like to hear (read) people talk about is what kind of attention or shift do we need to apply to the lower quadrants?  i.e. social holons?

Emine has dumped some pretty nifty thoughts on us already - but what do other people think?  Come on folks -let's get dirty!

Cheers, Brian.
