Wilber presents and discusses the Twenty Tenets in his magnum opus, Sex, Ecology, Spirituality, and also in A Brief History of Everything. The tenets describe reality—both interior and exterior—as composed entirely of “holons”—entities that are always wholes, and always part of a larger whole. In tenets that we will discuss this week, we’ll explore how this holonic structure enables vertical evolution. Here are this week’s tenets:
Exploring the concept of integrity from the vantage point of the universe itself.
The word integrity is central both to the spiritual teaching of Evolutionary Enlightenment and to integral theory. Integrity points to the inherent non-separation between the inner and outer dimensions of the universe—between the realm of consciousness and that of the manifest world. For us human beings, this deeper integrity means that what we believe to be true and how we act should be two mirror aspects of one single, inseparable whole.
Examining the miraculous process of individuation, how it has evolved through time, and the possibility of actively guiding it into the future.
Individuation occurs when we develop the capacity to distinguish our psychological world from the external world, when we learn to distinguish between “self” and “other.” It is what gives us our sense of being “someone,” of “self” of “me-ness.”

"A Sangha is a community of resistance, resisting the speed, violence and unwholesome ways of living that are prevalent in our society. Mindfulness is to protect ourselves and others. A good Sangha will lead us in the direction of harmony and awareness. The substance of the practice is most important. The forms can be adapted." ~ Thich Nhat Hahn
