Rhyn Nasser my friend, and fellow multi-modal healing and spiritual embodiment mentor practitioner, reached out this week to check in and have a chat. I had a sense to record it, maybe we’d share it. Ended up being a wide ranging dialogue about how we each approach living integral theory in practice… how different maps and models can help us get unstuck and move into more flow with life, to open more depths of embodying spirituality – and why you might want to or need to.
 
We talk through a model synthesising some of Rhyn’s lineages, look at the benefits and limitations of such maps, and explore some of what living them means for each of us through the lens of Ken Wilber’s meta-injunctions of Wake Up, Grow Up, Clean Up, Show Up and Open Up.
 
It was a lot of rich fun for both of us… connect with us directly if you want to explore anything this brings up for you.
