INTEGRAL THOUGHT PROGRAM
Integral knowledge is possible if we see reality beyond the epistemological veils and the cognitive models that hold us captive.
This program teaches you how to form a new epistemological approximation wherein you'll learn that reality is multidimensional and evolutionary.
Duration: 1 year.
Biweekly 2-hour sessions.
CREATION AND ENCOUNTER
PROGRAM FOR ADOLESCENTS
"When you're a kid, they tell you it's all... Grow up.
Get a job. Get married. Get a house. Have a kid, and
that's it. But the truth is, the world is so much stranger
than that. It's so much darker. And so much madder.
And so much better".
- Dr. Who
This program focuses on the formation of integral thought in adolescents, through weekly sessions that explore formal, recreational, and artistic dynamics. We will critically examine presentations, films, texts, and intellectual discussions within a variety of philosophical traditions. At the end of the program, students will be able to reflect, discuss and articulate their views, while accounting for the ethical and critical connotations of their ideas within a multidimensional model of consciousness and the natural world.
Via a journey through knowledge, we will also open spaces for exploration that will allow them to discover new professional fields under development. For this, we will review national and international institutions that have interdisciplinary programs and careers, through a strategic accompaniment that helps them define their first cycle of life as adults.
CONSCIOUS PARENTS, CONSCIOUS CHILDREN
Learn how to be a conscious parent so that our children can be who they are, themselves, in the total personalization of their possibility as human beings.
Childhood is the stage of life which needs of parent's unconditional recognition and acceptance; this experience enables our children to open up to life's spaces of development.
Being a parent is an act that requires our highest consciousness as human beings. It is the most sacred bond that allows us to experience what love is in fullness and meaning. Our world's salvation is in our hands, every time conscious parents lead children to discover themselves and life's mysteries.
We invite you to carry out an exercise of reflection that allows you to understand, evaluate, and identify your experience as a parent and to review it from the optic of integral consciousness.
Paternity is not an intergenerational script wherein a generation of parents brings unresolved issues to the next.
HONORING HUMAN VALUE: SCIENCE FICTION IN URSULA K. LE GUIN, DR. WHO, AND THE LEFTOVERS
“It is our suffering that brings us together. It is not love. Love does not obey the mind, and turns to hate when forced. The bond that binds us is beyond choice. We are brothers. We are brothers in what we share. In pain, which each of us must suffer alone, in hunger, in poverty, in hope, we know our brotherhood. We know it, because we have had to learn it. We know that there is no help for us but from one another, that no hand will save us if we do not reach out our hand. And the hand that you reach out is empty, as mine is. You have nothing. You have nothing. You own nothing. You are free. All you have is what you are, and what you give.”
― Ursula K. Le Guin, The Dispossessed
With this talk, Arkesoul invites you to explore the infinite expressions of human value in art, science, and other forms of consciousness. Cultural analysis in cinema, TV, graphic novels, video games, politics, literature, especially poetry, and science fiction, mathematics, the lives and works of artists, scientists, and thinkers old and new, in every period of human history, in which consciousness in development wagered to honor human value and transcendence. In every creative act, we are unfolding possibilities.
One 4-hour session.
MATHEMATICS AND POETRY
THE LANGUAGE OF COMPLEXITY
When we talk about mathematics, we may be discussing a secondary language built on the primary language of the nervous system.
- John Von Neumann
This discussion is part of a series of talks that Arkesoul offers in the revision of nonlinear, integral, and plural thought.
In each talk, we review a specific epistemological dimension that allows the symbolization of a more complex, integral, and plural reality.
This talk discusses how reality is complex and causal.
One 4-hour session.
THE FEMENINE INTEGRATED IN CREATION
THE BRONTË SISTERS, FLORENCE NIGHTINGALE, LOUISA M. ALCOTT, AND EMILY DICKINSON
I'm nobody! Who are you?
Are you nobody, too?
Then there's a pair of us — don't tell!
They'd banish us, you know.
- Emily Dickinson
The consciousness of the Feminine must be the "pillar" from which we reintegrate reality with meaning, this is a space where the Masculine in purpose sees "where we have to go" as a species, it's a space where a woman's action is the creation which sustains life and human value in its infinite forms and possibilities.
The women we review in this talk are doors that open the possibility of integrating the Feminine into the self. The Feminine, which sustains and gives purpose, and which allows the Masculine to be in creation. From the nineteenth-century, they point us toward a sacred wedding unfolding within us. Becoming conscious of these archetypal women is an irreversible choice that honors human value.
One 4-hour session.
