    A New Politics of Culture - Steve McIntosh discusses his new book, Developmental Politics

    A New Politics of Culture - Steve McIntosh discusses his new book, Developmental Politics

    In this episode integral philosopher Steve McIntosh and I discuss his new book: Developmental Politics—How America Can Grow Into a Better Version of Itself. Steve employs integral political philosophy to help overcome America’s hyperpolarized cultural condition. He offers a pragmatic yet inspiring approach to our national political dilemma through a new politics of culture—one that goes right to the heart of this entrenched, complex issue.

    Steve’s proposals for overcoming hyperpolarization are founded on an emerging form of “cultural intelligence” that directly addresses the conflicting values underlying our poisoned politics. This new way of seeing leads to an inclusive vision of social progress—a new American Dream—that can help revive our collective sense of common cause and thereby restore the functionality of our democracy. Developmental Politics provides the fresh thinking we need to transcend America’s contemporary political impasse.

    In his book, and this episode, Steve offers one of the best applications of integral thinking I know of, and right on schedule for our times. I hope you’ll find it as inspiring as I do.

    Choosing the Best Psychotherapy for You - Guest: Integral Psychotherapist and Zen Priest, Chad Bennett

    Choosing the Best Psychotherapy for You - Guest: Integral Psychotherapist and Zen Priest, Chad Bennett

    Like everything, the practice of psychotherapy is evolving. Emerging in the field today is a new integration of modalities that have previously been siloed, each claiming to be the best. But best for who – and what?

    My guest today is integral psychotherapist and Zen priest, Chad Bennett, who explores the new integration of therapeutic processes that is taking shape. He starts by describing the three major streams of psychotherapy:



    * Shadow work seeks to penetrate psychological issues, which are resolved by thinking and insight.

    * Trauma work deals with biological issues, which are resolved by sensing the body.

    * Attachment work addresses issues that are ultimately spiritual in nature, and are resolved, as he puts it, by “being”.



    In this episode, Chad explains how each modality works – separately and together – and maps their integration in a way that serves as a guide for both choosing and managing your therapeutic adventure. Our conversation made a lot of pieces fall into place for me, and I trust it will for you, too!

    Chad Bennett is an Integral Zen priest studying with Doshin Roshi, and has been a practicing psychotherapist for many years. You can find out more about Chad at his website Integral Somantic Awakening.

    Befriending the State of the World - Terry Patten and I take our perennial argument to the next level

    Befriending the State of the World - Terry Patten and I take our perennial argument to the next level

    My longtime friend and integral comrade Terry Patten and I have argued for many years about the state and trajectory of the world. And though we both strive to bring an integral perspective to the question, we do see it differently, and in ways that I think reflect differences of views within the integral community, and maybe within your own psyche. In this episode, we share the latest of our ongoing discussions. We enjoyed the heck out of it and, as always, finished a little bigger than we started. We hope you do the same!

    This episode is a co-production of The Daily Evolver and Terry’s new podcast, State of Emergence.

    Trump Trips the Trigger on Iran

    Trump Trips the Trigger on Iran

    President Trump’s drone assassination of Iran’s General Qassim Suliemani has dramatically increased the tensions between the US and Iran. It also raises concerns about Donald Trump’s motives and judgment in carrying out a U.S. President’s most deadly option, and what the ramifications may be. In this episode, I attempt to shed some integral light on the situation.

    Integral European Conference Preview

    Today my guest is Bence Ganti, the driving force behind the upcoming Integral European Conference, a major six-day event for the Integral community which will commence on May 26th at the Azur Resort at Lake Balaton in Hungary. This fourth biennial conference will be the biggest and most comprehensive yet, with over 700 participants from 50 countries.

And there’s goulash night too, the Hungarian specialty cooked in cauldrons over an open fire … then trance dance … then a firewalk!

    The Path of Virtue - How an internet quiz made me a better person

    The Path of Virtue - How an internet quiz made me a better person

    Integral philosopher Steve McIntosh helps us usher in the new year (and decade) with a fresh look at an ancient formula for living a happy, productive and meaningful life. In this episode he explains “the virtues”, a philosophical concept with living roots reaching back to antiquity, including Plato and Confucius, as well as modern validity in the findings of positive psychology and social science.

    Virtues practice is a powerful means of personal growth, and Steve gets us started by introducing The Character Exercise, an eight-minute internet quiz that helps us clarify our highest ideals and create a personalized “portrait of the good”. You are invited to do the quiz midway through the podcast … your answers generate a printable chart that serves as a practice tool for cultivating happiness and fulfillment. I took the quiz a few months ago and I can honestly say that it has significantly changed my life for the better. I am surprised at its power and trust it will be helpful to you too (let me know!). (let me know!).

    Later in the podcast, Steve imagines the virtues as illuminating the path through our hyper-polarized political culture, a prospect he explores more fully in his upcoming book, DEVELOPMENTAL POLITICS, How America Can Grow Into a Better Version of Itself.

Finns svensk motsvarighet?

Om du verkligen vill förstå vår samtid är The Daily Evolver ovärderlig. Jeff ger en alltid nya perspektiv att ponera med utvecklingstanke i bakgrunden. Om USA främst, mycket amerikansk politik men även om den senaste storfilmen eller populärkultur i allmänhet.
