Today’s Quote:

“The AQAL Code is the result of what started as The Human Consciousness Project. Similar to the Human Genome Project, the Consciousness Project was created to map every state of consciousness, personality type, meme, neurotransmitter from dopamine to serotonin, every synapse, PET distribution scan, meditation state, altered state, peak experience, neuropeptide, stage of consciousness, neuronal display, twitch, twinge, and tingle of the human mind, or psyche, or bodymind, or brain-mind, or whatever you want to call our being. The idea was to get a complete map of the human brain-mind — a composite map created by looking at every known culture and its psychological, spiritual, and scientific maps of the human psyche — going back thousands of years, and then using all of those partial maps to create a composite map of the full potentials of the total known territory of the human psyche to date.”

Today’s Video: Nomali Perera Gives A Tour Of Boulder Integral

In September of 2008, four members of Integral Sedona’s Leadership Team — David Sunfellow, Carol Williamson, Charles Wells, and Steve Schliebs — made a trip to Boulder, Colorado to meet the movers and shakers at Integral Life / Integral Institute and Boulder Integral. While at Integral Life / Integral Institute, they met with CEO Robb Smith, Clint Fuhs, and Robert MacNaughton. Then they buzzed over to Boulder Integral and met with Jeff Salzman, Ross Hostetter, Nomali Perera, Doshin Nelson, and other Boulder Integral noteables. Later that evening, they attended an inspiring question and answer session with Robert Augustus Masters and Diane Bardwell Masters. The following day, they attended the official launch and book signing of the Integral Life Practice book, with authors Terry Patten, Adam Leonard, and Marco Morelli. In between meetings, presentations and book signings, they also had time to roam through the festive streets of downtown Boulder where they ran into Huy Lam (featured in The Integral Life Practice Kit), discovered photos of Ken Wilber and Robert Masters posted in a local metaphysical bookstore, and toured the quiet halls of Shambhala.
