Publisher's Summary

With practical teachings and detailed instructions, Ken Wilber introduces Integral Mindfulness, a new way of practicing the widely popular meditation. Integral Mindfulness applies many of the leading-edge insights of Ken Wilber's Integral Theory - the first system to combine Eastern teachings on the five stages of awakening with the eight major Western models of human development, thus portraying the complete path of human evolution. In addition to all the benefits to body, mind, and spirit that standard mindfulness meditation confers, practicing Integral Mindfulness promises a more powerful approach to personal transformation and brings within reach the fullest experience of Enlightenment possible.
Beginning with as little as 15 to 30 minutes of daily sessions, the meditator can gradually expand from there by slowly and easily adding significant aspects of the practice. Meditation instructions and step-by-step guided contemplations are given in detail. Listeners learn how to create a graph to track progress and discover natural strengths and potentials. The book also offers recommended readings and resources to facilitate further study.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Some brilliant insights mixed with huge assumption

Whatever I state here will be massively incomplete because a more adequate response was take to or three hours to write. Ken W ilbur has been described by many prominent figures as a total genius. As with many of the proponents of integral teachings, Ken describes the way societies at various levels of development have grasped new truths, some of which are made to last, some of which are made to lessen in significance, or be entirely replaced, over time.

There is much wisdom in this. The challenge comes in understanding not the history, of social development, for that's something we can see clearly, but the validity of trending developments and where they are to lead us now. Along these lines, Ken makes a number of enormously sweeping statements throughout this material which show his bias and essentially provide him with a degree of self-elevation from which he can dismiss aspects of teaching from all the masters of the past.

Those who feel they must be free to define their own truth will love Ken and all he stands for. Those who understand that absolutes, on some level, actually exist and are there to provide boundaries across physical, psychological and spiritual realms, will find Ken's conclusions rather presumptuous, even arrogant.

Whilst I'm glad I've heard the viewpoints, following his way to become 'more evolved' is not something I'll be taking on board any lifetime soon.
