How Integral and Evolutionary Movement Concepts are Incorporated within the Universe Integral Community
Welcome! The Universe Integral community section of our website is a key area of the Universe Spirit organization. Universe Integral is the integral movement integrated with the new Universe Evolutionary Worldview viewed at the meta level of universe scale. Integral information and tools when seen from a universe scale perspective becomes even more useful.
Our organization has diligently adopted a broad universe and evolutionary science framed vision of the integral philosophy and the evolutionary perspective as it is relevant to creating integral universe evolutionaries and universe citizens as well as spreading the universe worldview based movement, which among other things helps to create an integral, trans-denominational meta-spirituality. (We call this new integral, trans-denominational meta-spirituality, Evolution Spirituality.)
Our growing Universe Integral community supports individuals seeking to integrate their personal integral spirituality with universe evolutionary science, integral philosophy and art. It is also fully dedicated to helping you expand your current personal spiritual path. A Universe Integral spiritual sub-goal is through example to enhance the integralization of the developmental "conveyor belt" found within current religious traditions to help better support the resolution of world problems.
What is different about Universe Integral from other integral organizations besides our adherence to the big picture universe scale view of integral --- is that you will see the best ideas and theory of the integral movement often invisibly woven into our web site content. Here you will also find people new to the integral movement and integral spirituality finding themselves unconsciously applying the best of the integral movement's most practical and useful ideas from a universe scaled perspective before they even know exactly what the integral and evolutionary movements are, what their technical jargon is, or study integral philosophy or the principles of the evolutionary movement in any depth.
Unlike other integral movement organizations, we will not force you into long and complex integral philosophy study as well as techie terminology discussions of complex and continually evolving integral theory. You do not need to prove to us how bright you are or that you are "second tier" before you can actually start important practical actions that effectively improve both your life and the world. The over heady, techie terminology theoretical discussion and "it is all consciousness" study focus of some integral movement organizations has been a big part of why many people, (particularly women,) so quickly leave the integral movement or are simply turned off to its most valuable and useful ideas.
Most people believe that theory is fine and knowing all the whys are good for a very small fraction of the population, but most people just want to use and test the theory out and see how it delivers practical and real life benefits. That is what we have done on the Universe Integral areas of the Universe Spirit website with our seamless applications of the best of integral theory, integral philosophy, integral spirituality and evolutionary principles without its worst.
What is also different about our new integral form of Evolution Spirituality is that it is not Advaita Buddhist dominated in its spiritual perspective, nor does it accept the Advaita Buddhist "myths of the given" as final spiritual truth just because they are the favorite personal myths of key integral personalities or even a majority of individuals in the current integral movement. Here you will find a truly open source form of "I, we it" meta-spirituality that equally honors both eastern and western mysticism and theologies and does not place one form of mysticism and theological expression developmentally above the other (as is subtly found in the Advaita Buddhist dominated Wilber Combs lattice.) (See the the full description of Universe Spirituality and the Open Source Spirituality Manifesto for more details.)
If you have a Judeo-Christian background or current focus or an eastern spirituality background or focus you will never feel that your spiritual mysticism and wisdom is being given a subtle "developmental" second seat at the table. (Click here if you would like a tangible example of one of our integral meditations that equally honors both the eastern and western "I, we it" of Ultimate Reality.)
Finally, as a not for profit organization at Universe Integral we are focused exclusively upon developing practical and integral applications of authentic and safe meta-spirituality derived in part, from the best ideas of the integral movement. We do not charge large fees for spiritual education or spiritual workshops. We are not designed primarily for the wealthy or some elite second tier developmental group nor are we celebrity endorsement focused. Unlike other organizations our course and services exchange model is simple, affordable, voluntary and scale based.
If you would like to be a part Universe Integral version of the integral and evolutionary movements and/or part of this evolving new integral form of Universe Spirituality, we welcome you to Universe Integral.
