Big Awesome List of Integral Voices


#1

I thought folks might like to share resources/ people/ organisations they consider to be integral. Perhaps with links and more info if something useful can be collated and organised over time. For now just going to throw a bunch of names out as personally I’m starving for some awesome integral voices. Be nice to hit all the quadrants:

Don’t think anybody needs introducing to Ken Wilber but feels right to name him regardless.

Alot of these have been featured on Integral Life, but having a big can only be useful. Some could well be debatable as integral but I think that debate would also be useful:

Warren Farrel (gender activist)
Diane Hamilton (Zen/ gender)
Elizabeth Debold (Gender/ Culture)
Jeff Salzman (Politics/ Culture)

Saul Williams (musician)
Stuart Davis (comedian/ musician)
Alex Grey (artist/ psycheledics)

Keith Whitt (therapy/ relationship)
Robert Augustus Masters (therapy/ relationship)
John Dupoy (iAwake founder - meditative states, also Integral Recovery)
Leslie Hershberger (Enneagram/ Christianity)

Rupert Sheldrake (subtle energy/ science)

Shawn Phillips (fitness)

Cynthia Bourgeault (Contemplative Christian)
Father Thomas Keating (Contemplative Christian)
Richard Rohr (Contemplative Christian)
Doshin Michael Nelson Roshi (Integral Zen/ Mondo Zen)
Genpo Roshi (Zen)
Sally Kempton (Tantra/ Hinduism/ Subtle Energy)
Jun Po Dennis Kelly (Integral Zen/ Mondo Zen)

Tripp Lannier (Life Coach - The New Man Podcast)

Barbara Marx Hubbard (evolutionary/ spiritual)

Don Beck (spiral dynamics)

Enlightennext/ Andrew Cohen
(The above definitely a problematic inclusion given all the abuse surrounding Cohen but arguably elements of his output were integral or other formers members of the organisation. Personally I see promise in some of the other members of the organisation. Not sure how active they still are - Jeff Carreira, Carter Phipps etc).

Thanks for the list. I’ll just add here Terry Patten’s New Republic of the Heart Website, which has a whole cornucopia of integral resources: https://www.newrepublicoftheheart.org/community-resources/

Saniel Bonder and Linda Grove-Bonder (former Integral Institute Charter members and holder of the Waking Down in Mutuality lineage).

Deborah and Terry Patten were married for many years, Terry was a former Waking Down in Mutuality teacher as was Deborah and many of the Trillium Awakening teachers.
Deborah and Sandra wrote a piece for the Cohering the Integral We-space ( which overviews several integral oriented groups, you can read the Amazon preview to get a jist of those folks, some area already mentioned).

Craig Hamilton (integralenlightenment.com)–meditation practices and courses; courses in “awakening the evolutionary impulse”

Sean Esbjorn-Hargens–check out his recent interview at dailyevolver.com on “taking aliens seriously.” For anyone interested in subtle-state phenomena/practices, multidimensionality, etc.

And of course, Integral Life’s own Corey deVos

Great stuff. Is really enough out there to collate a list that’s useful for folks to look at.

Who knows about M.A. Carrano? Author of “Asleep in the Helix: Survival & the Science of Self Realization.”
For real? Expert on Coral? Insights about pathology of Coral valid?

It’s hard to tell if he’s a blustering, brilliant poser or a deeply insightful resource. Haven’t read the book, but pulled in and interested. https://youtu.be/Fp1jNZOuAu0
