We are Peer Spirits learning to read five Maps

[i] of Integral City’s Intelligences and dance with her Communities of Practice.

Peer Spirits in the Dance

Apart, we situate our connections in the city as mentors[ii] to individual growth;

as coaches[iii] to holarchic relationships between individuals and groups;[iv]

as facilitator[v] for fractal synergetics of micro, meso and macro capacities;

bringing the ashram into the marketplace[xii]

as we connect to Integral City’s Communities of Practice.
