Episode 36: Dancing with Horses and Shadows

In this episode I´m joined by process philosopher and Associate Editor at Integral Review Journal, Bonnitta Roy. She will be visiting Norway in June 2012 in relation to a 5-day seminar focusing on integrative and transformative principles to learning and leadership. Bonnitta explains how her experience working with horses inspire her passion for exploring the many levels of communication that human beings can engage in. For instance, how does the way we show up – energetically – play a part in the way we communicate with each other? We also dig into the idea of working with shadows. Shadows are aspects of our being that are so deep they are often hidden from our own awareness. She points to how our shadows are great deposits of creativity and energy if we´re able to integrate this material into our conscious being.  Towards the end we touch upon one of Bonnitta´s new projects; the Magellan course – described as “a curriculum of studies across domains that engage an emergent type of post-rational reasoning”. Feel free to add comments below and check out the relevant links.

If you feel inspired or provoked by our conversation feel free to add your comments after the interview. You can also send in a written piece of work and get it published together with this episode. Further details can be found here.
