Down to Earth Integral Wisdom

In this podcast, Jeff examines current events through the lense of integral theory, relying most heavily on developmental stages (often using the language of Spiral Dynamics) and the four quadrants. I read many of Ken Wilber's books before I began listening to The Daily Evolver, and while they were illuminating in many ways, they didn't do a great job of helping me understand how the concpets of integral theory actually apply to on-the-ground, real life events, which is where The Daily Evolver excels. It has personally helped me to get a better felt-sense of the various developmenal stages as they manifest through political figures, public discourse/debate, social movements, etc. The podcast has also given me a more hopeful sense of the "beautiful but not pretty" arc of history, which Jeff frames as moving, overall, towards greater complexity, truth, goodness, and beauty, and does so in a convincing way. The Shrink and the Pundit series with Dr. Keith Witt is also superb, and has helped me to get a much better sense of how integral theory can be effectively applied to psychology, relationships, and therapy. Some of the episodes, such as the one on regulating anxiety, have been very helpful to me personally. And they're just so fun to listen to! A frend of mine said they are like the Click and Clack of psychology.

Perspective on world events

Jeff is great at using world events to help apply and understand integral theory. The clarity I have gained his greatly reduced my anxiety about what is happening in the world. It is also help to guide my interactions with those I may not agree with.
