The Ascent-Descent Arrow Debate

July 31, 2015   2015 IEA Global Conference, Audio   

Arrow theory recently emerged as a key question raised by participants at the 2014 IEA World Cafe group discussion session. Also known as Integration /Disintegration or the Ascent/Descent perspective, the arrows advise a move toward security while moving away from stress.

But here’s the question: Does a map for enhancing qualities that make us feel secure while diminishing those that don’t – accurately represent the Diagram’s intent?

This session turns attention to our human role in learning to internally witness and relax conditioned patterns of attraction and avoidance without embracing or rejecting either. There will be a powerpoint on the Original Diagram of 3 balanced equilateral triangles. An inner practice on The Great Middle Way of energy containment, and a brief introduction to how all this fits into the laws of 3 and 7 – which will be the next key question to answer.

On a personal note, I am grateful that a review of key concepts is finally taking place. IEA participants have made their call and heartfelt thanks are due to scientists and scholars who have paved the way.
