Integral InstrumentsWhat is it to be human? What is it to be a human being in these times? What does it look, sound andfeel like to align what we are with the stories, needs and facts of our world? What do the answers toquestions about our individual and collective futures look like, and which actions are appropriate inlight of the answers?You’ll find the introductions to a number of powerful instruments the Center for Human Emergenceworks with to help further your investigation into these questions below. Each instrument is world ofpotentially unlimited depth unto its own. Their choice is not coincidental. It is an expression of a deepfelt need to integrate the best a number of brilliant contemporary thinkers have to offer. These thinkershave sought each other out to co-evolve and actively enrich their already firmly establishedparadigms of human development. We believe their perspectives are presented in ways that facilitatethe generation of fresh ideas and courses of action to address the complexity and challenges we facetoday.Who are these contemporary thinkers and which theories do they represent in this introduction? Weare proud to introduce Dr. Don Beck, who initiated the Center for Human Emergence, Ken Wilber andAndrew Cohen and their respective contributions in Spiral Dynamics, Evolutionary Enlightenment andIntegral Theory.In short, Spiral Dynamics offers a view of why human beings see things differently, how this develops,and how we can use this understanding to impact communication, organisational development andeven create the conditions for world peace. Evolutionary Enlightenment shows how we can transcendour personal limitations and liberate our authentic self through consistent application of the power ofchoice to create new structures in consciousness for the good of the whole. Integral Theory offers amap that connects all information the world has to offer on human potential and development.Wilber’s “theory of everything” contains the fruits of extensive cross-cultural study, and is credited forbeing a genuine world philosophy.It is our wish these works will inspire the creation of a new level of order in perceived chaos, a newsense of connection in perceived fragmentation, and an absolute sense of direction while remainingopen to the possibility of not knowing.
