Deeper dimensions

4D Integral Practitioner

 

Are you ready for the next level of human being?

Discover a truly evolutionary life path to personal and professional development in the 21st century. A way of perceiving, feeling, thinking and behaving that can lead to higher levels of awareness for living a more balanced, productive and integrated life. 

We are delighted to be offering our 4D Integral Practitioner certification events for people interested in personal and professional development. This includes teachers, coaches, trainers, facilitators, parents and educators. In fact anyone who would like to discover how to apply Integral theory (the most comprehensive map of human being to date) to transform how they communicate in life and work.

 Who are 4D Integral Practitioners?

They are people like you, from every and any walk of life, who all share the same commitment to personal integration and vertical development. This means increasing their ability (and the ability of others) to communicate effectively by viewing the world through multiple lenses in order to create a genuinely comprehensive map of an increasingly complex world.

 How would becoming an 4D Integral practitioner benefit you?

Becoming an Integral practitioner means developing your interpersonal and intrapersonal intelligences thereby expanding your ability to communicate at the highest levels. How to both consciously choose the impact you have on the world and the impact the world has on you. By bringing the four primary dimensions of human being – body, heart, mind and soul into one integrated whole you will experience new levels of confidence, stability and personal satisfaction. You will also discover how to be as healthy and functional as you can be at your current stage of life. You may then decide to take further steps towards higher and deeper levels of development towards realising your fullest capacities in the future.

What is Integral philosophy?

Integral philosophy is an inclusive worldview that seeks to synthesise multiple perspectives in order to find creative solutions to the many complex challenges of the 21st century. It is essentially grounded in evolutionary theory and is a way of viewing life, the universe and everything by drawing and building on the values, ideas, beliefs and experiences of all previous and current human wisdom. Particularly around what it means to be a human being and the meaning and purpose of existence. Integral theory in practice seeks to incorporate perspectives from all the sciences including sociology, psychology, ecology and biology - in fact any subject with an 'ology' at the end is a candidate for inclusion. Integral theory can also be applied to the worlds of business, politics, medicine, education, law, art, philosophy and spirituality. Arguably the most influential Integral theorist is the philospher Ken Wilber, who has written extensively on the subject and who is one of the first to have his collected works published during his lifetime. We would recommend you to read his book 'A Brief History of Everything' as a starter. However Integral Theory has a lineage that goes back to the Indian mystic and philospher Sri Aurobindo.

The 4D Integral Practitioners Communication Skills programme is the beginning of the Integral pathway and will take you through the 4 Dimensions of Human Being. Physical, Emotional, Intellectual and Intentional. You will also explore the key lines, levels, states and stages of your being through immersive and interactive learning and development experiences. Beginning with:

 

4DIP Introduction – Who are you?

IDENTITY

2 Days - Content will include:

The Reality: Sometimes the gap between our expectations and the day to day reality we experience can create confusion and even conflict. Also the gap between how you think you are perceived and the reality of other people's perception of you may be larger than you think.
