Integral Voices

“Things fall apart; the center cannot hold“ wrote Yeats about 100 years ago in his poem “The Second Coming.” While in the deafening incoherence of an unraveling center, inquiring and transforming conversations necessarily move to the edge. Edges are associated with danger, crisis, complexity, possibility, the unknown, and unknowable. We are now in edge times as never before. Protected from the noise, a dialogic commons is a place that nurtures generative listening. A listening where the powers of resonance foster the emergence of creative imagination and a re-sacralizing coherence. Integral Voices convenes dialogues at evolving edges to catalyze a renaissance of real human development and the seeding of possible worlds. Integral Voices is produced by the Center for Transformative Learning at Meridian University. View the full archive of conversations at
