In order to make an integral worldview accessible and spread it, we have founded Quantum Civilization on three main pillars – education, research and trans-disciplinary engagement.
We will organize workshops in an age-, level- and/or theme-specific manner, with the aim to engage the individual into active, critical, non-biased and constructive inquiry of where they are, who they are and where they are going. We will encourage a unifying, trans-disciplinary approach as opposed to the hyper-segmented, play-back approach that disappointed us in the traditional education system.
Workshops and Retreats:
Critical Thinking – aimed mainly at high school students, but able to engage people of all ages, this workshop’s aim is to expand on the outdated linear thinking encouraged in the traditional educational system and revive the sharp and open minds of its attendants. Issues such as logical fallacies and non-linear methods of thinking will be discussed, several topics such as politics and discrimination will be debated while teaching individuals to take a side without being offended by the other party. Last but not least, the workshops will train participant’s problem-solving abilities and prepare them for real-world scenarios. Click here for more information.
Cognitive biases – in a high-level approach, we will highlight the prejudices and biases that society has induced upon itself. Open-mindedness, willingness to face problems and to share personal experience are encouraged for the maximum benefit of this workshop. We will engage in debating the nature and cause of such biases, and discuss solutions to overcome them. These workshops will aim to free the mind from the chains of misconception and [limited personal worldview and thus create open-mindedness and tolerance as well as significant personal development.
Introduction to Reality – from a multi-perspectival view, we will ask ourselves what reality is and introduce the nondual vantage point through which we can inquire into the nature of our inner and outer experiences. After presenting the history of our identity in a non-biased, narrative and Harari-like manner, we will define several universal steps through which we are developing as humans using amongst others Ken Wilber’s structure-state matrix. In doing so we will have agreed upon the meaning of specific terms that we need in order to form a common language which we can further use to debate the present state and aspects of the world, thus creating a platform from which we can go on and plan the future.
Embodied Integral Practice Retreat – suitable for people who are interested in an integral, balanced and holistic personal growth, this retreat aims to introduce its participants to the latest research in consciousness development and integral theory and present methods to implement it into their daily lives. From Friday evening to Sunday night, in Sasca Montana, we will engage into diverse activities which will touch the majority of the archetypal human dimensions – physical, emotional, mental, spiritual and interpersonal – both through theoretical and practical approaches. We will talk from the perspective of leading researchers in the domain of integral growth and consciousness studies, while also including our personal experience in combining the structural development of the West with the inner state development and meditation practices of the East and finding ways to embody the cultivation of wisdom in the modern life. The purpose is to encourage open discussions about a healthy and responsible lifestyle not just inside this retreat, but after it ends as well.
Besides the beneficial effects of leaving the city routine and enjoying a rural scenery in the hills of south-western Romania, there should also be the effects of challenging ourselves to integrate multiple activities in a relative short amount of time. Challenging ourselves always brings progress, and we think that it isn’t the wisest choice to wait for life to challenge us, when we can assume responsibility for our own conscious growth.
One on one sessions and special offers:
Discovering Holotropic states and energy practice – using the latest hypnagogic technology and devices that measure ones energy field and distribution across the body, we aim to guide you into holotropic states and teach you how to discover your own formula for optimizing your energy levels and overall life balance – this will be available as of March 2019 for initial trials, to get in touch with us if you want to find out more
Integral Development Guidance – the complexity of the world increases exponentially. In earlier times it was possible to find a single individual who was a philosopher, an astronomer, a physicist, a mathematician, a biologist and an artist all at the same time. Slowly, as knowledge expanded, specialization became inevitable and the modern scholar of today knows a tremendous amount but in a very narrow area of his or her specialization. This calls for a conscious and thorough analysis of what the consequences will be if our teachers and leaders end up “knowing everything about nothing”. This service is for individuals who want to overcome this problem, who want to continuously develop all their lines of intelligence, engage efficiently in multiple fields and be part of the leading edge of society, while at the same time inquiring into the spiritual meaning of life so as to be able to give their actions meaning and direction driven by genuine care and interest for the benefit and development of the world.
Corporate Offering – how do we master efficiency, time management and work satisfaction without becoming a robot driven only by profit or self-centered success? How do we transform our corporate working environment into a truly human-friendly workplace which leaves free time for our personal projects and social commitments? These and many more are the question and issues we propose to help solving within the corporate environment. Get in touch with us for more details.
We will focus our research around consciousness, integral human development, transpersonal psychology and inner wisdom traditions with a profound emphasis on backing up our hypothesis with as much evidence as possible, bearing in mind that for some of the deeper subjective states, injunctive individual practice represents the actual empirical evidence.
Our research drive and methodology are inspired by Integral Theory and Research thus far and will be based on – a post-metaphysical and transdisciplinary perspective that is dedicated to articulating the ways ontology, epistemology, and methodology interact and co-arise across various scales of time and space. We emphasize the perspectival nature of reality, which emerges as first-, second-, and third-person perspectives interact with each other to enact phenomena.
Besides publishing our theories and findings in monthly news bulletins, we aim to allow interested members of the public to develop their own research into similar fields and use our own platforms to promote their research and reach a wider audience.
III. TRANSDISCIPLINARY ENGAGEMENT
Realizing that the 21st century has connected us across time and space with the help of the internet and air travel, we will aim at promoting transdisciplinary engagement across the spectrum of human experiences and fields of study. We will try to connect scientists, mystics, artists, athletes, politicians and many more with one another through unique events aimed at fostering understanding amidst seemingly divergent groups of people.
