"Integral Without Borders is, in my opinion, the best and most important organization addressing sustainability from an Integral, comprehensive view, which makes it the most important organization of its kind.  Please look them over carefully and join with them in whatever way you possibly can.  You won’t regret it!"  ~ Ken Wilber, The Integral Vision

Integral Without Borders is a global network of practitioners dedicated to integrating perspectives and manifesting greater depth in the praxis of international development. We hold events and telecourses, offer mentoring and consulting, and provide resources. Welcome!

Engaging Cultures, Societies, and Systems: Applying an Integral Approach to Sustainable Development in Peru


Practitioners in international development are constantly engaging social holons in a change process. Change occurs quite differently in social groups than it does in individuals, requiring us to develop different skills and understanding. Drawing on social psychology, on Wilber's Excerpt D, and on our own field experience, Integral Without Borders is holding a field learning event in Cusco, Peru to further examine the dynamics of cultures, societies and systems, as well as to learn skills to engage a truly integrally-informed social change.

Dates: Oct 16-Oct 26, 2012

Application deadline: August 30, 2012 (please apply with application form below)

Cost: $1500 (Includes accommodation, in-country travel, food, entrance fee to ruins, organization and facilitation. Does not include airfare.)

Integral Development - A view





The purpose of this short paper is to suggest a different paradigm for an increased alignment between Donors, Agents of Change (AOC) who are often NGOs and Beneficiaries, which ultimately is likely to be more authentic, more effective and more durable.

Integral Practitioner in Praxis - Conference in South Africa [Program added]

Tlholego EcoVillage

Dates: 28 May to 01 June 2012

For many years now we have seen programmes offering theory and theoretical discussions on integral practice.  Most of these have dealt with the internal development of the practitioner and although this is very important it is now time to move on.  It is important for us now to look at the way, in ‘real’ situations of praxis a practitioner would use this theory and possibly years of individual development/practice, to provide further insight and tools for the complex situations found in international development.
