Thats a great question. For starters, it seems like intersubjective spiritual practices, such as “we space” practices, circling, and “social meditations” seem to be all the rage nowadays amongst young spiritual seekers. Which makes sense, since true to the postmodern shift in recent decades, spirituality/consciousness is moving from the isolated self of the UL quadrant to the LL social dimensions, from traditional phenomenology to intersubjective phenomenology, sometimes called “intersubjective enlightenment.”
One of my friends (34) developed an Integral educational program in Hawaii offered to high school kids through a non-profit. The goal is to train the next generation of Hawaiian leaders through Integral practices including contemplative exercises, education on the AQAL model (and fun ways of applying it), communication techniques, leadership development, etc… They just finished their first year, which was a blast. We covered everything from altitude improv games to spiral moral reasoning to dream yoga.
Another one of my friends (36) is a teacher at a college in Iowa, who is teaching classes on transformative leadership, community development, and sustainability using the Integral model. Part of the students capstone project will be to upload their Integrally informed project onto an online website, which will function as a sort of online, Integral museum, which will archive the students explorations in applying integral to social change models.
As an organic farmer, I have been trying to piece together an Integral agricultural model, which would not only integrate the best of different farming traditions from around the world (such as biodynamic, permaculture, grow bio intensive, Korean natural farming) but also emphasize the internal development of the farmer, which is in my opinion, very important for next generation farmers. Many young farmers in Hawaii, who are mostly at green, tend to be “flaky” and shy away from hard work and the industriousness necessary to be a successful farmer, which stands in stark contrast to the older, traditional amber and orange farmers of large-scale industrial ag. We need to develop the consciousness of future farmers to promote environmentally sustainable agriculture while also being financially feasible.
A far off dream of mine is to put together an Integral political platform, combining the best of far left socialism with far right anarcho-capitalism, perhaps with some Crowdocracy thrown in there too, and run a campaign in Hawaii that would hit every relevant value-meme in the community in a transpartisian narrative. The campaign would also prepare us for the future of AI and automation, while being aimed at uplifting human consciousness in the process, so even if we didn’t win, the very act of the campaign would have an uplifting and unifying effect on the community.
In the near future, I am designing Integral educational materials to present to non-profits in Oregon, with the goal of leveraging green consciousness and helping it tip over into 2nd tier, which is sorely needed even for purely practical reasons. Many of these green non-profits are receptive to Integral ideas, especially when properly framed in the green language of “diversity, equity, and inclusion,” although one has to be cautious of presenting anything appearing hierarchical to green.
Thats a few things off the top of my head
