Dr. Maull will present a vision and pathway for personal and social transformation free from the debilitating, undmining, and counter-productive dynamics of blame and shame. He will point to a way out of our current social, cultural, and political morass of divisiveness, distrust, and deep polarization grounded in the complete integration of both personal and collective responsibility. He will employ elements of polarity theory, integral theory, spiral dynamics, and buddhist philosophy to demonstrate how we can co-evolve beyond the exacerbated polarities that falsely divide us today, and find a middle way forward together free from the self-defeating dynamics and perils of extremism.
