I’m excited to announce my upcoming online course titled: Cultural Intelligence: Transcending Race, Embracing Cosmos, presented through the Aligned Center. Here’s a description:
Our country’s current racial and cultural crises have invoked a dire need to reexamine our understanding of race and reflect on our own blind spots. I invite you to join me virtually at the Aligned Center to delve into our crisis of meaning and the meaning of crisis in his timely new nine-week series.
As a culture we’re coming to understand the value of emotional intelligence in our personal lives and interpersonal relationships. In this class, I explore culture as another form of intelligence–a discipline of human values, feelings and behavior that enrich our own lives and that of our fellow citizens (and even our opponents). I identify three stages of cultural intelligence: cultural literacy, culture-in-action, and personal application via conscious culture.
Emotional intelligence, social intelligence, scientific intelligence and spiritual intelligence provide essential insights into the human experience. In the course, we will investigate how cultural intelligence may be a final piece of this cosmic puzzle to co-evolve a better, brighter and more coherent future for our families, neighborhoods, towns, cities, regions, nations, and the global community.
I suggest that the next stage of human development demands cultural intelligence as a guide, as a vision and story for a heightened quality of life.
Join me for this nine-week series on Wednesday nights from 7-9 pm EST beginning on October 14, 2020. Here is the link to sign up and for more information:

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
In this new article by Carter Phipps, he asks where 50 years of "I'll do me and you do you" has gotten us.
This tweet is the first in a series of our favorite positive-positive interdependent polarities: LIBERTY & EQUALITY. These two values need each other to maximize their value creating capacity. Through a dynamic relationship of challenge and support, each pole trues-up the other.
