Welcome to The Mind in Integral Life Practice

“AQAL helps us realize that the Kosmos is a lot bigger than we might have previously imagined. It can thus serve as an expansive framework for virtually any human endeavour, including Integral Life Practice.

“By understanding the AQAL Framework – a map whose territory is You – your self-awareness will naturally grow and deepen, so that you can make better decisions in your personal life, at work, and in your contributions to the world.” – Integral Life Practice
