Integral theory is an all-inclusive framework that draws on the key insights of the world’s greatest knowledge traditions, including the natural and social sciences as well as the arts and humanities. The awareness gained from drawing on all truths and perspectives allows the Integral thinker to bring new depth, clarity and compassion to every level of human endeavour — from unlocking individual potential to finding new approaches to global-scale problems. Integral theory has been developed by American philosopher Ken Wilber.
As a result of its comprehensive nature, integral theory is being used in over 35 distinct academic and professional fields such as art, healthcare, organizational management, ecology, congregational ministry, economics, psychotherapy, law, and feminism. In addition, integral theory has been used to develop an approach to personal transformation and integration called Integral Life Practice (ILP). The ILP framework allows individuals to systematically explore and develop multiple aspects of themselves such as their physical body, emotional intelligence, cognitive awareness, interpersonal relationships, and spiritual wisdom.
“Ken Wilber is one of the greatest philosophers of this century and arguably the greatest theoretical psychologist of all time.” –Roger Walsh, M.D., Ph.D.
Network Chiropractic and Integral Theory
Ken Wilber has written of Dr Donny Epstein’s work,
“… to be one of the first true Three- Body energetic works—because it appears to adjust not just the gross-physical body (and its energy) but also the subtle body and causal body (and their energies), which helps evoke correlative states in consciousness. This initiates a healing resonance in Body, Mind, and Spirit that is quite profound and that is unique, as I said, in that it does so via a three-energy bodywork. I give it my highest recommendation. (Wise World Seminars 2008). Quoted in: “The Sexiest and Loneliest Element of Integral Theory: Subtle Energies” By Simon A. Senzon, MA, DC
Network Spinal Analysis (N.S.A. aka Network Chiropractic), Reorganisational Healing and other associated disciplines developed by Dr Donny Epstein use the Integral Model for discussion and further development. An important paper “Reorganizational Healing as an Integrally Informed Framework for Integral Medicine ” has recently been published in the Journal of Integral Theory and Practice.
The Journal Of Integral Theory and Practice has published another paper, Subtle Energies Viewed From Four Quadrants by Network chiropractor, Simon Senzon, which refers to Network Spinal Analysis.
