From Homeland Earth; A New Manifesto For The New Millennium, Morin, Edgar 2018 California Institute of Integral Studies

From Homeland Earth; A New Manifesto For The New Millennium, Morin, Edgar

Journal of Conscious Evolution

Now that the fantastic adventure begun in the 15th century has come to an end, the shout of Columbus’ lookout man takes on at last a planetary meaning: Land! Land!1 Even up to 1950-1960, we were living on a misapprehended Earth, on an abstract Earth. We were living on the Earth as object. By the end of this century, we discovered Earth as system, as Gaia, as biosphere, a cosmic speck—Homeland Earth. Each one of us has a pedigree, a terrestrial identity card. We are from, in, and on the Earth. We belong to the Earth which belongs ...


The Evolution Of The Culture Of Enterprise, Laszlo, Ervin 2018 California Institute of Integral Studies

The Evolution Of The Culture Of Enterprise, Laszlo, Ervin

Journal of Conscious Evolution

At the top echelons of contemporary business, managers are becoming concerned with the unsustainability of the way companies now operate. A transformation of basic business strategies appears more and more indicated. For such transformation to be effective, the culture of the enterprise--the goals it pursues and the vision of these goals entertained by managers and collaborators--needs to change. Consequently there is a growing questioning of the viability of the typical culture of today's enterprise, and a search for more functional and timely concepts for creating anew and more timely cultural pattern.

Death And Resurrection: Enlightenment And The Body Of Light, White, John 2018 California Institute of Integral Studies

Death And Resurrection: Enlightenment And The Body Of Light, White, John

Journal of Conscious Evolution

Enlightenment or God-realization is not purely a psychological event. Bodily changes also occur, most dramatically in the higher phases of enlightenment. In the final phase, according to esoteric teachings in various sacred traditions and hermetic schools, the body is alchemically changed from flesh into light, becoming immortal. This transubstantiated body is called different names, such as resurrection body, light body, solar body and diamond body. This presentation looks at the phenomenon from a cross-cultural and evolutionary perspective. It then focuses on Christianity as a sacred tradition whose purpose is to enable people to develop through the resurrection of the body ...


Chi Kung Facilitates Integral Growth: An Empirical Investigation, Arnold, C., Bruggerman, E., Kim, H., Combs, A. 2018 California Institute of Integral Studies

Chi Kung Facilitates Integral Growth: An Empirical Investigation, Arnold, C., Bruggerman, E., Kim, H., Combs, A.

Journal of Conscious Evolution

Chi Kung Facilitates Integral Growth: An Empirical Investigation C. Arnold, E. Bruggerman, H. Kim, & A. Combs[1]

Swiss cultural philosopher Jean Gebser (1949/1986) proposed a theory of the evolutionary development of structures of consciousness that describes the common ways people living in different periods of history interpreted reality and constructed their worldviews. These included four major structures corresponding to four historical epochs, an archaic, magic, mythic, and mental structure which remains dominant today. Citing changes in art, literature, and scientific during the 20th century, Gebser also proposed the emergence of a forthcoming fifth structure, that he termed integral consciousness.

The transitions from each structure to the next, which Gebser termed mutations, do not imply the replacement of previous structures. Rather, as Feuerstein (1987) and Combs (2002) note, there is a sense of increasing complexity with each successive new mutation, in which a structure comes to dominate the earlier ones. Thus, the modern human, operating predominantly in the mental structure of consciousness, continues to experience the world to some degree through the older structures as well. These structures are described elsewhere, and will not be reviewed here (Combs, 2002; Gebser, 1949/1986; Feuerstein, 1987; Wilber, 1981).

The integral structure of consciousness, however, incorporates a balanced synthesis of all four earlier structures, and was regarded by Gebser as the highest potential for human experience. Although Gebser focused mostly on the emergence of integral consciousness in terms of its wide occurrence across the human species, late in his life he came to regard meditation and other spiritual practices valuable for the cultivation of integral consciousness (Combs, 2002). Gebser was particularly fond of Taoist thought, acknowledging the play ...

Alchemical Transformation: Consciousness And Matter, Form And Information, Peat, F. David 2018 California Institute of Integral Studies

Alchemical Transformation: Consciousness And Matter, Form And Information, Peat, F. David

Journal of Conscious Evolution

There has grown up, relatively recently, a nucleus of interests called ìconsciousness studiesî in which physicists and mathematicians, as well as neuroscientists and psychologists, attempt to discover the origins of ìconsciousnessî within the brain. A variety of approaches are employed, some based upon neural networks, others that argue that consciousness must have a quantum mechanical basis, or involve self-organization arising out of non-linearity. A common thread is a certain sense of optimism that ìthe question of consciousnessî will yield its secrets in the same way as, for example, the genetic code or sub-atomic matter. I must confess that I find ...


Transition To Transcendence: Franklin Merrell-Wolff's Mathematical Yoga, Baruss, Imants 2018 California Institute of Integral Studies

Transition To Transcendence: Franklin Merrell-Wolff's Mathematical Yoga, Baruss, Imants

Journal of Conscious Evolution

Mathematicians--those who develop new mathematics--spend much of their time proposing the existence of mathematical constructions whose existence they then proceed to try to prove from the mathematics that has already been developed. Following that, they often try to prove that those mathematical constructions are unique, that there are no other constructions with the same characteristics. In practice, it is often easier to prove the uniqueness of a mathematical construction than its existence, so a mathematician may proceed by first proving uniqueness, as though the mathematical construction existed, and then using clues from the uniqueness proof to prove existence. I want ...


The End Of Death? Conscious Life In Global Cyberspace, Purdy, Michael 2018 California Institute of Integral Studies

The End Of Death? Conscious Life In Global Cyberspace, Purdy, Michael

Journal of Conscious Evolution

In The Ever-Present Origin, Jean Gebser, in talking about the magical structure of consciousness[1], states: "All directing implies a consciousness process" (EPO 49). And so to die is to become not consciousness, to lose the power to direct, ultimately to lose control over our own destiny. Being only human, and realizing that death is often more real than an afterlife that we cannot experience while alive[2], we actively fight any loss of control-we fight the passage to death. In that directedness, the glimmerings of which began with magical consciousness, and that came to full awareness with the mental-rational ...


A General Introduction To Integral Theory And Comprehensive Mapmaking, Saiter, Sean M. 2018 California Institute of Integral Studies

A General Introduction To Integral Theory And Comprehensive Mapmaking, Saiter, Sean M.

Journal of Conscious Evolution

While attempting to keep to the larger vision of integral studies as a whole I shall be proposing a rudimentary outline of an underlying assertion primarily based upon the works of Ken Wilber, Jean Gebser, Don Beck and Christopher Cowan (based on the work of Clare Graves), and Mark B. Woodhouse. Robert Kegan, Howard Gardner, James Mark Baldwin, Susan Cook-Greuter, and Carol Gilligan are influences working in the background.

Perhaps the most important thing to keep in mind when trying to understand integral studies as a field is that a fundamental, underlying message in Wilber's, Graves', Beck's, Gebser ...


Evaluating The Predictive Validity Of The Implementation Beliefs Assessment On Classwide Management Components, Sarah Alexa Metallo 2018 Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College

Evaluating The Predictive Validity Of The Implementation Beliefs Assessment On Classwide Management Components, Sarah Alexa Metallo

LSU Doctoral Dissertations

Given the broad framework of the Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports model, its barriers to adaptability and implementation in schools have affected an increased emphasis on exploration and measurement of treatment integrity. A tool directly linked with a model of treatment integrity is the Implementation Beliefs Assessment (IBA; Sanetti, Long, Neugebaur, & Kratochwill, 2012). The IBA has preliminary evidence indicating it is a psychometrically sound measure; however, since it is a measure related to behavior change, assessing its predictive validity of treatment integrity is a useful indicator of this tool’s value during the consultation process. The current study utilized multiple regression to expand the psychometric properties of the IBA and investigated its association with ...

Personality, Perceived Benefits, And Willingness To Mentor In Formal Programs, Kristen Voetmann, Dana Kendall, Scott Campanario, Vatia Caldwell, Mathea Krogstad 2018 Seattle Pacific University

Personality, Perceived Benefits, And Willingness To Mentor In Formal Programs, Kristen Voetmann, Dana Kendall, Scott Campanario, Vatia Caldwell, Mathea Krogstad

School of Psychology, Family, and Community Research Conference

We examined the relationship between perceived benefits and willingness to mentor in a formal program with personality as a moderator. Findings indicated that the relationship was more strongly positive for individuals who demonstrated high levels of conscientiousness and openness than for those with low levels.


A Review Of Collaborative Biopsychosocial Healthcare Worldwide, Sadie Teal, John Charleson, Jyssica Seebeck, John Thoburn 2018 Seattle Pacific University

A Review Of Collaborative Biopsychosocial Healthcare Worldwide, Sadie Teal, John Charleson, Jyssica Seebeck, John Thoburn

School of Psychology, Family, and Community Research Conference

This review calls attention to the importance of collaborative care in international settings and highlight advances in models of care that are emerging globally. As our understanding of physical and mental health increases, healthcare continues to move towards a systemic approach to the mind-body dichotomy. This shift has resulted in increased provider collaboration and formation of multidisciplinary healthcare organizations. We propose that collaborative care is an effective way for providers to meet the physical and mental healthcare needs of patients across cultures. We further propose categorizing collaborative care models on a continuum of the degree of physical and functional integration.


We Are Amta: Evidence-Based Strategies For Volunteer Leadership, Sara Cannon 2018 Seattle Pacific University

We Are Amta: Evidence-Based Strategies For Volunteer Leadership, Sara Cannon

School of Psychology, Family, and Community Research Conference

The purpose of this study is to provide information and insight about volunteer leadership experiences in the American Music Therapy Association through qualitative data gathered from 35 music therapist volunteer leaders nationwide. Appreciative inquiry, an approach that focuses on what is working well within a system, was utilized to discover (a) what experiences have been meaningful and impactful for music therapist volunteer leaders, (b) how these practices can be enhanced and applied to increase the pipeline of volunteer leaders, and (c) increase positive outcomes for the organization, the field of music therapy, and music therapists seeking leadership skills and experiences.


A Taxonomy Based Meta-Analysis Of Risk-Sensitive Foraging Models From 1950 To Present, Rachel Donka, Josh Sevigny, Derek Riegel 2018 Seattle Pacific University

A Taxonomy Based Meta-Analysis Of Risk-Sensitive Foraging Models From 1950 To Present, Rachel Donka, Josh Sevigny, Derek Riegel

School of Psychology, Family, and Community Research Conference

Analysis of over 180 articles is being conducted related to risk-sensitive foraging in mammals, birds, reptiles, and arthropods. Articles span research conducted from 1950 to present. Articles will be coded to identify the primary models supported by research in addition to experimental methodologies using a formulaic ranking system. Primary goals include identifying trends between and within taxonomic categories in sensitivity, comparing different models of foraging (e.g., optimal foraging, daily energy budget, sequential choice, scalar expectancy theory), specimen origin (e.g., lab reared or wild caught), experimental location (e.g., field or lab), and deciphering key trends within the literature ...


A Comparative Study Of The Availability Heuristic In Risk-Sensitive Foraging, Rachel Donka 2018 Seattle Pacific University

A Comparative Study Of The Availability Heuristic In Risk-Sensitive Foraging, Rachel Donka

School of Psychology, Family, and Community Research Conference

Cognitive biases, or heuristics, are well known and established within psychological literature, but little research exists on whether these biases significantly alter decisions where variability or risk is involved. To date, no research on cognitive bias in animal behavior has been completed. The proposed study seeks to determine if individuals, both human and nonhuman, utilize the availability heuristic to evaluate the probability of outcomes when probabilities are objective and known. Risk sensitive foraging models, in which participants choose between a constant and a variable option, will be utilized to evaluate reliance on heuristics, increasing understanding of cognitive valuation and choice.


Images Of Aging, Well-Being, And Life Satisfaction Among Independently Living Older Adults, Delaney O'Brien, Jan Anderson, Maddie Grigg, Naomi Isenberg, Samantha Jacobson, Karen Tanzy, Nicholas Van Baak, Nancy Weinbeck, Michael D. Roe 2018 Seattle Pacific University

Images Of Aging, Well-Being, And Life Satisfaction Among Independently Living Older Adults, Delaney O'Brien, Jan Anderson, Maddie Grigg, Naomi Isenberg, Samantha Jacobson, Karen Tanzy, Nicholas Van Baak, Nancy Weinbeck, Michael D. Roe

School of Psychology, Family, and Community Research Conference

The U.S. is an aging country in an aging world, and yet negative age-related stereotypes abound and continue among the most institutionalized of "isms." Such stereotypes in older adults are associated with poor mental and physical health. In contrast, older adults with more positive views of aging experience better mental and physical health, engage in more preventive healthy behaviors, and enjoy greater longevity. These positive aging outcomes are confirmed in the present study of independent living residents in Bayview, a retirement community in Seattle (n=41; 26 females, 14 males; ages 70-94 years). In addition, this study reports findings ...
