Presence is a non-profit organization contributing to the developmental evolution of individual and collective spiritual consciousness.
Think of us as spiritual cartographers. We are curating developmental charts, hosting global conversations, and amplifying fresh insights from leading-edge voices on the future of spirituality.
At Presence we are asking, “What is the future of religion with regard to universal God identity?” Our proposal is an Integral Spirituality based upon the foundation of an Integral Theology.
This approach transcends the boundaries of religious God identity on one hand but also includes a Narrative that supports the evolutionary consciousness that led us to this place through history.
It’s moving beyond debates about one true religious form and discovering a new space of formlessness wherein universal human oneness is nothing less than God with us, in us, and through us.
It’s coming to see the divine as All in All, not All in some.
For all those who sense and see an evolutionary shift unfolding at an unprecedented rate, welcome to the global conversation for a new earth.
Integral Theology is an evolutionary interpretive approach to the Biblical Narrative. Using the models of Spiral Dynamics and Integral Theory, interpretation follows the course of history with regard to worldviews which determined understanding of God identity.
From Archaic Adam forward each worldview is exemplified in actual history. All characters play a necessary role or function in the evolutionary process of spiritual consciousness.
The process begins with the promise of blessings to all nations and ends with a proclamation of enlightenment for all nations in a new heaven and earth.
Integral Theology is directly related to the concept of God as All in All – not all in some. Therefore, everything experienced within the Narrative plays an integral part.
