One of the “meta-challenges” of the cChallenge opportunity that attracted me was the opportunity to view the cChallenge in the context of a “meta-community”. I was curious if we would attract participation from what I call the 4+1 Voices of the Human Hive; namely, Citizens, Civic Managers, Business/Innovators and the Third Sector – plus [...]

Ever since I embarked on the journey of discovering what an Integral City might mean, I have anticipated that the city would be the site where human collective intelligence is most likely to unfold. Why? Because it is where we are gathered together in collectives – i.e. families, groups, teams, departments, organizations, sectors, neighbourhoods, [...]

Ecstatic Dancing was featured in the second evening at IEC2018. What happened in ecstasy behind the door was counterpointed by the trail of shoes left behind in the hall. When you look at the shoes, what paths can you see? What preferences have been chosen? What talks have been walked? How do Allies [...]

Much of my academic interests and Integral City work has involved the principles of Action Learning (Action Inquiry, Action Research).

To move is to act. In response to a stimulus. Or in response to an intention. My moving here to Findhorn, Scotland has been for many of my friends and acquaintances a conundrum. They could not easily understand why I would move away from the comforts of home and all things familiar. But [...]
