Themes and possibilites of an integral future

For the past 10 years Ron has retired from the hi-tech fast lane and has been doing consulting and research around the world for various non-profit organizations. His passion has been working with intentional communities which integrate art and science with philosophy and spirituality into practical new models for sustainable development and human unity. He has worked closely with Paolo Soleri at Arcosanti, an experimental arcology in central Arizona, where he was the Co-Director with Michael Gosney of the biannual Paradox Conferences and wrote the Introduction to Soleri's coffee-table book What If? Collected Writings 1986-2000.” He also lived for 6-months per year at the Federation of Damanhur in the foothills of the Italian Alps while researching its fascinating work with esoteric physics. Ron's work is now focused on the international community of Auroville in Pondicherry, India, where he has lived for 2-4 months per year for the past several years.
Ron is presently the Founding Editor of SCIY (Science, Culture and Integral Yoga), a webzine which in 2 years has grown from its 4 founders to over 25,000 viewers located in 80 countries. Ron and his Hollywood Television-Director wife Kim live in the beach community of Marina del Rey, California. They're planning a move to the west coast of the Big Island in Hawaii.
