“There is a ‘Grand Integrator’ within everyone that is capable of integrating all the linked yet differentiated components that make us human.” —Myers

“Wellness is the result of a human being becoming integrated” —Siegel



What is our future?

What do we want?

What do we need to do?

Our Future


If our future is determined by our beliefs and how we act on those beliefs, then how do we protect the integrity of our minds?  Protect yourself by knowing when and how the "perception managers" have you as a target.

Problems to solve

David Simon

HBO: The Wire: About the Show

One of television's most critically acclaimed programs, the Peabody Award-winning drama series 'The Wire' continues to challenge viewers with a "cop show" unlike anything on air.

The fifth and final season of 'The Wire' centers on the media's role in addressing - or failing to address - the fundamental political, economic and social realities depicted over the course of the series, while also resolving storylines of the numerous characters woven throughout the narrative arc of the show.

Explains series creator David Simon, "It made sense to finish 'The Wire' with this reflection on the state of the media, as all the other attendant problems of the American city depicted in the previous four seasons will not be solved until the depth and range of those problems is first acknowledged. And that won't happen without an intelligent, aggressive and well-funded press."

About the Tao - Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching

"Even a 1,000 mile journey starts with a single step."

If the content of this site is dear to your heart, we are around the camp fire together. If you are a stranger to this topic, it may be more like you are visiting a library or reading room, or even a museum.   A guided tour of this site is available on the "Meet" page.   The tour will introduce you to a sample of integrative thinkers from the five fires or gatherings.   

The future  is determined by what we do.  It is determined by the verbs. It is determined by what we believe (say to ourselves) and how we speak to each other.   Go!  Stop!  Be afraid!  Love!  Work together!  Connect! are words, that, when spoken lead us down disintegrating or integrating paths. 

"Look not mournfully into the past. It comes not back again. Wisely improve the present. It is thine. Go forth to meet the shadowy future, without fear."~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882)

"If you want to go quickly, go alone.  If you want to go far, go together."  - an old African proverb, quoted by Al Gore when discussing his winning of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize.   For us, now, Mr. Gore added, "We want to go far, quickly."
