INTRODUCTION TO INTEGRAL (LECTURE AND CONVERSATION)
The goal of the framework is to find the most balanced, comprehensive and inclusive set of perspectives in every sphere of life and it has a very practical outworking that only serves to enhance ones tradition, not replace it. It makes use of multiple models including developmental “levels” which seek to interpret all manner of difference (for example cultural, psychological, or ideological) as a function of natural stages of on-going growth and evolution.
Integral’s application to religion is fascinating. Being co-hosted as an interfaith event by the Cape Town Interfaith Initiative and the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat, a progressive Islamic community, it can be viewed (but not limited to) as working towards an “Integral Islam”. This concept is virtually unknown and untried, and one should approach the lecture and conversation as predominantly a creative workshop and a safe space to raise questions.
Nic Paton is a member of the CTII and Friend of the Ahmadiyya Jamaat. He has been an Integral student and practitioner for many years.
