INTEGRAL WORLD: EXPLORING THEORIES OF EVERYTHING
An independent forum for a critical discussion of the integral philosophy of Ken Wilber
Publication dates of essays (month/year) can be found under "Essays".
This is a list of individuals, groups, newsgroups on the Net, initiatives in
politics, education, science etc., that are inspired by the work of Ken Wilber,
but have no official relationship to
the Integral Institute. It's purpose is to foster contact between people who
are working in the same field, but are often unaware of eachother's existence.
If you feel you should be on this
list, don't hesitate to
me about your integral initiatives. To avoid spamming practices, the email addresses on the Integral Initiatives page have been rewritten as "-at-" instead of "@". Before you send an email, please undo this change.
