thank you Di and Noha for your reflections and i deeply appreciate the three points of intersection…..it will help me to distinguish and be able to respond when and if a torrent of sentences come my way in the future.
I always think of epistemology as two sides of the same coin….understanding and praxis..the understanding being the kind of…[Read more]
Hello Noha and Di
When I am using the term integral in my mind……..it is what the name of the experience/sense of unity is called. (you can see the search of that sense in my PhD in the resource section. Its also in other documents I have on DTJ.
I am somewhat familiar with the work of Ken Wilbur but he has not shaped my thought process.…[Read more]
So here is the conclusion of someone regarding fostering tolerance and compassion in the community. Its certainly an example of generosity, but is it enough to build a sustainable and flourishing Earth community?
I wonder how to bring the concern people have into the integral framework. People just dont want to engage conceptually…its a…[Read more]
Perhaps I will just have to take the leap! For example, this weekend….our college is going to show a film “the world before her’..taking the lives of two young Indian women…one entering a Miss India pageant (supposedly to be free of the constraints of patriarchal society????) and one entering a fundamental militant Hindu ‘boot camp”. (to…[Read more]
Thank you Mike for posting this. I appreciate your play on words…made possible through an integral framework and understanding of being in a bound relationship…no divorce or squiggling out of it.
I also have not found the term “Stewardship” sufficient for compassionate action. Stewardship imply’s yet another identity to settle…[Read more]
Greetings all from Mumbai
This is great information for classroom teachers fostering tolerance inside the classroom and so so hopeful. I am also interested in our teaching forms aside from schools…eg family, work and recreation. I live in India and , as the world over, the politics of separation….othering , difference etc etc are gaining…[Read more]
This is a report after events at Xavier College, Mumbai, India in November 2016. The seminar was organized by Prashant Olalekar, SJ, and his colleagues Dr. Orla Hazra, and Ms. Candice Menendez, used in their […]

looking very much forward to the live chat on thrusday evening. the school is fantastic!
Narrative report of a course at a Jesuit College honouring the integral process of the Ignatian Pedagogical Paradigm (context, experience, reflection, action, evaluation) showing the shift as a result of […]
Thank you, Orla, for this very inspiring and hope-giving paper! Just think what could happen if all Jesuit institutions took your lead! (And then all other institutions!) Congratulations, and may the metanoia experienced by your students be a meaningful reward for all your efforts! It’s had a positive effect on me.
Greetings all! I just tried to upload my document on Ignatian Pedagogical Paradigm in the Context of an Evolutionary Universe but it would not ‘take’. Will try again tomorrow. IPP is the pedagogy associated with Jesuit schools internationally and was developed reflecting the integral spirituality of St Ignatius of Loyola. Unfortunatly, the pra…[Read more]
Thank you Jennifer and Imogene, Andrea, and Laura! It feels as if we are starting from scratch in our understanding of ‘pedagogy’, the form of education in schools. The other forms of education are in family, work and recreation. Imogene- you and other artists have a huge role as art spans all four educational forms!!!! I think all of us can re…[Read more]

Thank you very much Jennifer for starting this discussion and for the insights so far from our group Angela, Teri, and Duane. Duane, can I take a copy of the book to India? I can share it with the head of the Jesuit Education Association who is most appreciative of all of this and was just recently in Rome. The students loved the documents you…[Read more]
Greetings from Mumbai
Thank you very very much for posting this article of yours. I am going to go through it with a ‘fine toothed comb’ not unlike the combs I see women using each morning, as they wake up on the streets and comb their long hair to take out the bugs. The weather here is now unbearable as are these daily sights and I…[Read more]
Thank you very much for adding this article and you are absolutely right that todays schools do not foster wonder and awe. Even with learning the story/big history…if the contemplative wonder is not honored, if the subject is just more facts- what are we really doing? Where is the Joi de vie…the sensitivity to life and all its expressions?…[Read more]
Orla Hazra Added a new Resource, Earth Charter plus 15 Webinar on Ecological Integrity 3 years, 6 months ago
On 3 June Brendan Mackey will speak about how the Earth Charter conveys the concepts of ecological integrity and what that means regarding ways of living and dilemmas of policy and decision making
Thank you Kyle for assembling this chart and I love the name ‘Big History as Connective Tissue’
It both is our connective tissue and about our connective tissue- and a crucial gift wrapped in tissue we ‘teachers’ offer to generations to come…embellished with what else they find!
Thank you very much Steve! I am aware it is being done and it is great to see ‘how’ it is being done. My usual site for sharing the story has been at retreats or to teachers in seminars encouraging them to engage with the material….never in a regular semester length course with the institutional requirements. It will be a challenge at the be…[Read more]
Yes, indeed! It seems as if we are ‘lost in translation’ and perhaps muddled within the reframing process. It is not the first time humans reframed themselves at fundamental levels. A comprehensive exploration of these times in history is crucial if we are to avoid the increasing mis-perceptions of what the term ‘religion’ means and can beg…[Read more]
