A reminder that the Sydney consultation is on Sunday 22/8/10, Adelaide 25/8/10 and Brisbane 1/9/10 (to be confirmed), and we are in the process of making arrangements for Perth & New Zealand (depending on numbers).
Our trip to the US for the Integral Theory Conference was fantastic. Adam, Don and I (John) met with Ken Wilber, along with his team in Denver, to discuss progress in Australia. He was very generous with his time and it was great just to experience his presence. We left them with a few gifts to remind them of Australia. We also had a very useful and enjoyable discussion with Robb Smith (CEO). Our thanks to all the folk (including Susanne Cook-Greuter and Jeff Saltzman) who generously gave their time to talk to us about starting IIA.
The conference was an interesting 3 day affair. I started each day meditating with Diane Hamilton, and then trying to choose from the wide range of Integral topics and speakers. The key note address by Dr Robert Kegan was a highlight, as was the chance to mix with so many integrally minded people.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank the Integral Institute Australasia in WA for their help with our ongoing project of securing Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status for the Integral Institute Australia. The journey is made that much easier when assisted by those who have travelled the road before.
