integralMENTORS works with individuals or small groups to gain a deeper integral understanding of praxis in the field of International Development. These practitioners tend to have extensive field experience in international development in the design, implementation or evaluation of programmes or projects. They also tend to have a grounding in Integral Theory.
Because of the nature of an Integral approach we don’t as a starting point concentrate on any one issue or action - so no concentration on leadership or best practices or interiors or evolution or sustainability etc - but to approach a contextual understanding of a number of different perspectives. This will in time probably include many of those listed above. Unless the process is generative, morphogenetic and probably snippable it tends just to repeat or overlay both ‘good and bad’ processes from other contexts. Each one of these issues has a different meaning dependent on the kosmic address from which it is seen.
We are not trying to make the world ‘integral’ (Turquoise) which is a misunderstanding of what integral means - but are trying to help individuals to become Integral practitioners. To enable them to have a much broader and compassionate view of the issues before them and thus a much more comprehensive ‘tool’ kit with which to work.
integralMENTORS works internationally and is currently based in the UK
