Interior and Exterior

Interior and Exterior | The Integral Landscape Café | Scoop.it

The Evolution of Consciousness is nothing short of the evolution of everything we experience on the gross and subtle planes. Biological evolution is not separate from this. For it is the nucleus (governing center of consciousness) of any sentient holon that dictates the *use of resources* of that holon thus altering the structural landscape of its matter-energy composition irrevocably. Mind and matter are but the interior and exterior of a single unfolding. (Leo Marrs)

New UK Government Publications on an Integral Approach to Climate Change

New UK Government Publications on an Integral Approach to Climate Change | The Integral Landscape Café | Scoop.it

The UK Government (Environmental Ministry) just published a significant report regarding societal and industrial adaptation to climate change. It was written by David Ballard (who has published in the Journal of Integral Theory and Practice) and his team. This is a pretty significant application of AQAL integral theory (using quadrants, levels, and lines) and has undergone peer review process to be formally published by the UK government. We thought you'd appreciate seeing this! -

Aesthetic sensitivity. Precision Consciousness - James Hillman

Aesthetic sensitivity. Precision Consciousness -  James Hillman | The Integral Landscape Café | Scoop.it

 

„ A theology of immanence means treating each thing, animate and inanimate, natural and man-made, as i fit were alive, requiring what each living thing requires above all else: careful attention to ist properties, their specific qualities. This plant needs little water; this wood won’t bear much weight and burns with a smoky fire. Look at me carefully: I am an aspen, not an oak. Notice differences, pay attention, give respect (re-spect = look again). Notice what is right under your nose, at your fingertips, and attend to it as it asks, according to its needs. Aesthetic sensitivity. Precision consciousness. “

James Hillman: Kinds of Power,

Anne Caspari's insight:

James Hillman, Kinds of Power. Such a beautiful book; worth while reading, again and again.. His re-viewing the concepts and constructs of; efficiency, growth, service (see exerpt) and maintance alone is worth while,  taking us way beyond hopelessly defining/limiting theories and definitions that invite polarities and dialectics. Opening up new stories, and new ways to treat this world. Only then he dives into a full appreciation and phenomenology of power in all its facets, shadow sides included.

Ecopsychology 101: James Hillman and the pain of community loss

Ecopsychology 101: James Hillman and the pain of community loss | The Integral Landscape Café | Scoop.it

Ecopsychology, as propounded by James Hillman, a therapist based in northeast Connecticut, seeks to redefine the goals of psychology by paying heed to the health of one's environment just as one would the pathology of one's family. "Psychology, so dedicated to awakening human consciousness, needs to wake itself up to one of the most ancient human truths: we cannot be studied or cured apart from the planet."

 

"When a farm is subdeveloped, acres of trees go down or there's an oil spill in town, you feel it deeply and it goes on in you for so long, every time you walk past that place," said Hillman, who has successfully fought road extensions and subdevelopments in his town. "That never comes into consciousness. It is never talked about on the community level. People all know this inside their bodies. That's the horror. It hurts. When I see old healthy trees go down it hurts."

Even though this talk is a couple of years old, it is still brilliant and extremely inspiring. It is about. Let it inspire you, wether you do community work, process design, architecture, engineerering or any other profession that requires creativity. Simple basic question: what would nature do? And She has some billion years of R&D more than us. Failures went down as fossils, really cool solutions to virtually any problem are abundant around us.
