Facing the Shadow: An Integral Approach to the Dark Side
The Integral Map points us towards expanding spiritual realization, but cautions us to learn to work with Shadow elements of consciousness before they work with us. You may be able to access expanded states of awareness, but still get hung up when addressing personal or interpersonal matters. One of the goals of integral practice is to address this discrepancy between the personal and the transpersonal work, and to give people the tools they need to address the aspect of the self that needs to be worked with.
In this dialogue we will focus on the element of Shadow work in Integral practice, including the Integral tool of 3-2-1 Shadow work and integrating projections. We will also differentiate between shadow material, negative emotional patterns, and expression of trauma. We will further explore the challenge of navigating shadow in relationships and the collective realm, so that our spiritual awareness can be fully manifested in everyday life.

Today's leading spiritual luminaries are converging online for an unprecedented exploration.
Their question: How does the spiritual path need to evolve to serve the evolutionary needs of humanity in the 21st century?
The great wisdom traditions emerged at a time when life was radically different than it is today. The world has changed immeasurably in the past two thousand years. And human beings have changed along with it.
We are a new humanity facing a new set of challenges—and a new set of opportunities.
How can we liberate the spiritual impulse from the outmoded structures of the past, so it can guide us in creating the future?
We’d like to invite you to join us in our quest for answers.
Each event will explore this question from a unique angle. We'll look at how the discovery of evolution is giving birth to an entirely new spiritual impulse-- as well as a new framework for engaging in spiritual practice. We'll ask how the great traditions of the past can be brought up to date and kept relevant to a rapidly changing, increasingly complex world. We'll explore some of the new, more integral forms that spirituality is taking, from the emergence of new paths of self-inquiry to the birth of collective enlightenment. And we'll think together about the vital role each of us can now play in creating a more enlightened future for humanity.
