This is to announce a summer seminar by ICE directors Steve McIntosh and Jeff Salzman focusing on the integral philosophy that animates ICE’s perspective. For three and half days—August 18-21, 2016—we will gather at the Integral Center in Boulder, Colorado for a deep dive into the integral (a.k.a. “evolutionary,” or “post-postmodern”) worldview. Here is a link to the seminar’s webpage:

“The Integral Seminar was a profound experience of integration: The head and the heart, the theoretical and the practical, the political and the spiritual. The bonds created helped me to clarify my own gifts while appreciating the beautiful gifts of others.”— Greg Thomas

Polarity #4 is MERCY & JUSTICE. Mercy for the individual becomes unjust without concern for the good of the whole. And to be truly virtuous, justice must be balanced with care for each person.
Polarity #3 is COMPETITION & COOPERATION. One without the other can become problematic. But when both of these are brought together in a mutually correcting relationship that provides for both *challenge and support,* the value-creating potential of each side is maximized.
Polarity #2 is REAL & IDEAL. Each pole needs the other. Realism alone can lead to a cynical acceptance of a dysfunctional status quo. And unrealistic idealism can result in ineffectual wishful thinking. But through mutual co-correction they can fortify our power to improve things
