Integral Theology

Combining tested cultural-developmental theories with unique takes on biblical studies and the divine, Integral Theology shows surprising connections that unite our sacred narratives with our destiny. Read on to see what’s possible when we lose our attachment to religious forms and begin to discover our shared identity in spirituality itself!

And now, Presence is releasing the Integral Theology video series, an HD-quality series exploring the intersections between a transformative study of the biblical narrative with Spiral Dynamics and an AQAL (all-quadrants, all-levels) approach to spiritual growth. Feeling in the dark about what these terms mean? Don’t worry! In this video, Presence President Doug King discusses the convergence of these two fields for anyone just getting started in either.

Enjoying this video? Are you ready for the rest of the series? Well, the Integral Theology series is not for sale; currently, the only way to get the series is by subscribing to our free Presence newsletter right here. In addition to staying up-to-date our latest articles and events, you’ll be getting a new video in this Integral Theology series each week!
