Introduction to Integral Theory & Practice: IOS Basic and the AQAL Map

by Ken Wilber - This 40-page essay is a user-friendly introduction the AQAL Map which provides the intellectual framework for Integral Recovery. This same essay was later expanded into an pocket-sized, wonderfully illustrated book called The Integral Vision: A Very Short Introduction to the Revolutionary Integral Approach to Life, God, the Universe, and Everything. We highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn what “Integral” is all about.
