Sean Kelly: 5 Principles of Integral Ecology
Presented at Schumacher College
In June, 2010, Sean Kelly presented his formulation of five principles of integral ecology while co-teaching a course at Schumacher College entitled "Gaia and the Evolution of Consciousness" with Rupert Sheldrake and Stephan Harding. Sean’s five principles focus on placing human existence into its ecological context and explore the relationship between gross and subtle forms of action. The video contains his lecture.
