I am currently writing a new book called The Pain and the Promise.
Here is a recording of a recent presentation with questions and reflection that I gave for the Integral Leadership Collaborative, a great initiative with a vast array of Integrally informed folks (see http://www.integralleadershipcollaborative.com). It lays out the essence of where I am at now and what the book will be about. It is 2 hrs in total. My core presentation goes for c 35 mins from c 10 mins in. The questions and discussion also proved very rich.

Here is video of a talk I gave on the Pain and the Promise more recently.
Thanks Peter! It would be great if you could list the sources you refer to.
Sure – here you go! If you are missing any, let me know!
Thanks. I’ve got a question and an addition to this.
You mentioned: “…very few people in the world who are looking the context / life conditions in the eye…” and “…find the sources of information that aren’t scared to tell the truth of what’s happening…”.
My question: Who are doing a good job, and what sources would you recommend? (Would love to hear from other listeners/readers as well)
And to add to your list: You also mentioned the work of Joanna Macy. For people interested I recommend these videos.
Yes, particularly Joanna’s book “Coming back to Life”.
To reply to Koen’s question above about sources. I recommend Paul Ray’s mailing list (send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to ask to be put on it) – he scours the internet for the real and not always pleasant news of what is actually going on, as well as some of the breakthroughs. I also recommend John Petersen of the Arlington Institute – you can sign up for their newsletter at http://www.arlingtoninstitute.org/.
