This is the beginning of our series of interviews with Ken Wilber.

Ken Wilber is the author of over 25 books and the creator of Integral Theory, which has been one of the most influential frameworks for understanding the stages of human development. For that he’s been sometimes called the “Einstein of consciousness studies”.

This is a multi-part interview, and we start by talking about Integral Theory from a historical perspective, and the current stage of societal development. Ken also offers his comments of Jordan Peterson’s interpretation of awakening and Greta Thunberg’s climate activism.

In Part 2, we talk about the transition to so-called 2nd tier stages of human development. Ken comments on the Metamodernism movement, and identifies the people who embody 2nd tier thinking right now.

There is enormous amount of truth out there, but most schools focus only on one little area - @TheKenWilber Click To Tweet
