something within seeking expression

I’ve been on the “integral fringe” for a few years, intrigued when I read Integral Spirituality.  I am both attracted by and resistant to an Integral Life Practice: a structure that I imagine would help me to be more effective, productive, and organized. 

So it was a little surprising to me that when the opportunity of this five-day intensive called Integral Incubator, my instant response was  the Yes! I’ve learned to trust. 

With words like “intensive” and “boot-camp”, I was a little apprehensive.  And at the same time, willing to look closely at which comfort zones and knee-jerk responses are no longer serving. 

I sometimes get “prickly” when talking about it, especially if I’m picking up a “I have lots of expertise in this area, and I can help you” vibe.  It happened with someone over the lunch hour.  I noticed it and named it, giving us an opportunity to take the conversation to a different place, seeking the common ground.

An intention arising from that interaction, is to learn to be in these conversations as a flexible, fluid, dance instead of from a prickly, defensive stance.

It’s the next step forward in launching the Authentic Body Project as something more than this sometimes blog, something more than just my personal process.

Thanks for modelling the transparency that can take a connection to a higher level. I need that today.

Hmmmm…the next step for Authentic Body Project. Bring it on!

Thanks, Margaret. Transparency has been a real theme for me this week. I’m looking forward to greater and greater transparency on this blog!
