Integral Europe Conference 2023 (IEC23) provided an experience of how the Integral Movement explored the theme of Planetary Awakening 2.0 along a Gravesian Change Curve (as explained in prior blog here). Not only were the sessions and speakers themselves pointing to the sounds and situations of change, but the conversations and exchanges of participants reflected these sounds.
In this table I have hinted at the complexity levels in the change states – starting with Alpha at Healthy Green; Beta reverting to linear Orange; Gamma downshifting to ordering Blue; Gamma Traps fighting it out in red; Delta releasing into Yellow; and New Alpha hinting at Turquoise.
The table above reflects many of the topics and how I heard/saw the change lens that speakers explored.
It was my experience that the most powerful and optimistic voices came from women – Marianne Bozesan on the nature of consciousness and fractal time versus the fear of AI; Gail Hochachka and her perspectives on climate change engaged through peoples’ consciousness (and not just techno-matter); and the ever-powerful voice from the subtle realms of Shaman Brigitte.
I think the change curve analysis shows the dynamic state of the Integral Movement in a world of ever-increasing dynamic change. We continuously face the challenges to meet people where they are at and the need for us to build capacity as a daily practice.
