My favorite quadrant of the Integral matrix is the upper left. This quadrant is the conscious subjective of the individual interior or the “I” of the matrix. This is where personality type, gender types, altered states, normal states, phenomenal states, cognitive awareness, emotional access, interpersonal skills, psychosexual expression and spiritual experiences reside. (Esbjörn-Hargens)
My spiritual experiences are probably why I love the upper left the most as those experiences have the most meaning for me and inform everything else I do as an individual. Integral verifies this happens to everyone as it proposes that each quadrant has an effect on the others whether it be conscious or unconscious. (Esbjörn-Hargens)
My favorite spiritual practice is “ecstatic dance” as there is something about moving the physical body which also moves whatever is stuck which is able to rise to consciousness whether it be some type of creative solution or other “ah ha’s” that may arise. Every once in a while, if I’m lucky, I enter an altered state where instead of me doing the dance I am able to rest in the state of being danced. It feels like heaven and I call it a “dancegasm”!
Do you have something similar that happens to you that is generated from the upper left?
