Long live Ken Wilber
Yes Ken, I am so glad that I finally, seriously read you (Sex, Ecology, and Spirituality) starting in January, 2005. And then I got on your website, and signed up for your newsletter, and every week would get an interview you had done with people I found really interesting. And then I continued to read your stuff, both more of SES, including all those great footnotes, and everything else I could get my hands on. ( Some of my favourites: Grace and Grit, One Taste, SES again and again, and the one on science and religion, The Marriage of Sense and Soul. ) So, those have really helped with GROW-ing up. What has been much harder for me is the WAKE-ing up side. But recently, April 14, 2021, I (again, finally) began regular atttendance at Daniel P. Brown’s twice- monthly Meditation Improv zoom sessions. And then, about a week ago, I was diagnosed with “late-stage, but not terminal” prostate and bone cancer. So, perhaps that will help to “concentrate my mind wonderfully” in this “second half” of my life!
Much love, from Gary William Wall, Toronto, Canada
I have been a student of Integral for over ten years. I began with some of Ken’s books, attended several integral conferences and have listened to many, many of his talks. His teaching, and the amazing community of integralists he has catalyzed have been nothing less than transformational to me. The integral lens through which I now see the world has brought much clarity, even peace, to my life. I bow with much gratitude to him, his wisdom and his generosity.
You know that Linda and I love you so much and we always will. It’s a deep joy to be able to join together with so many of your other admirers to support you in the down to earth realities of your everyday living and well-being. You have changed the whole world so profoundly for the better. It’s an honor to be of any help and service to you that we can, dear Ken.
Love and Heart-blessings from us both,
Saniel Bonder & Linda Groves-Bonder
PS, Linda sends you a steady stream of hugs too!
