It seems that participants are buzzing about what happened at the 2015 Integral Theory Conference on the campus of Sonoma State University.

We keep hearing from participants who have attended three or even all four ITCs that it’s no contest; this was the best ITC yet. Many conference goers, including some who were skeptical upon arrival and others who are not so easily impressed, have told us that ITC 2015 was a landmark event.  

Convivial discussions in one of the village suites.

The buzz we’re hearing is that the conference broke new ground and breathed new life into the community; that something fundamental shifted in the collective field; that this could be a turning point for our cohesiveness and emergence as a networked community of scholars, practitioners, artists, and activists.
 
We share this news with cautious optimism and without desire to be self-congratulatory or feed into a culture of hyperbole that turns practically every occasion into something “not-to-be-missed” or “the best ever.”

We’re content to say that ITC 2015 was “significant” and to offer a few reflection pieces that variously highlight and cultivate what was most meaningful in our eyes. In the coming days, you’ll be hearing from ITC co-chairs Sean Esbjörn-Hargens and Mark Fabionar, and ITC co-lead organizer Jordan Luftig.

 
 
Today we’d like to share with you a cornucopia of material from and stimulated by ITC 2015:
  • This beautiful summary reflection from ITC co-founder Mark Forman, who gracefully stepped away from the role and responsibilities of onsite organizer and experienced ITC as a participant for the first time!
  • Several substantive write-ups of conference sessions, including keynote presentations, plenaries, and panels from conference blogger Jeremy Johnson – the graphic recordings of visualization expert Mathias Weitbrecht accompany some write-ups.
We hope you enjoy these links, which are but a small sample of many remarkable reflections and ongoing conversations that ITC 2015 has inspired. Many of these are happening on social media; we encourage you to get involved.
 
 
Stay tuned for more from us...

Along with our commentary on ITC we’ll be giving you free access to video recordings of two or three conference sessions, not least of all the Democracy 3D panel on integral culture and spirituality that received a standing ovation and has folks buzzing.
