The Arrogance of the Imperial Integral Mind

The Arrogance of the Imperial Integral MindI need to post an opinion of one panel discussion at the recent ITC 2015. I hope this is a good place to do so.

What paths lie ahead for religion and spirituality in the 21st Century? How might the insights of modernity and post-modernity impact and inform humanity's ancient wisdom traditions? How are we to enact, together, new spiritual visions – independently, or within our respective traditions – that can respond adequately to the challenges of our times?

This group is for anyone interested in exploring these questions and tracing out the horizons of an integral post-metaphysical spirituality.
