Integral Communities Network______________________
If all things are created by a combination of simpler, less capable components then the ways of creation of a supreme being will arise when enough of us are consciously evolving, unshakable in our will and pursue of purpose. Sharing this same spirit, ICON-Mexico sees itself as a part, a community prototype, one of the many which are arising here and now.
Upon research in the community and integral arena we realized that our vision is not a human dream but an evolutionary poise where something bigger is willing to emerge through us. If you are looking for evidence you don´t need to go so far. It is observable all over the web, through the social networks, the blogs, the amazing content sites. People are creating socialmedia and spreading spores of consciousness. Forming vaster and vaster morphogenic fields of evolutionary intention.
Therefore ICON-Mexico is committed to actively participate in what we consider to be the unfolding of a network of communities which share and are inspired by the integral values and ways of living. We envision communities of pioneers that feel the evolutionary impulse to create new forms of doing and being in the world. Healing ourselves and the planet, training as collectives as we presence the emergence of totally new social ecosystems capable of the unimaginable.
We envision a network of integral communities which together can decide to create whole new ways of governance and wealth generation. Which expand through Global collective intelligence practices and are able to provide larger fields of play and belonging for those willing to live, engage, grow in community. Together we might form a collective body, a network of Distributed sustainable homelands.
Seeding this intention we are decided to open all our work to the world. So far our contributions are small but solid.
- We have produced an online community survey derived from Barrett Brown (Integral sustainability Center) methodology. This survey is a wonderful tool available upon request for anyone who is interested in knowing which forces thwart of support your community efforts.
- We applied this survey to a group of people in the edge of culture which invested time and energy to respond this survey. With their responses we developed two art objects: a. An integral community design thesis b. A blog with all responses
Current actions and developments:
- During our first work iteration we began the development of a what we call 'Project and Team tetra-evolution' which is a methodology for giving structure to an organization as well as team facilitation processes for planning, manifesting and administrating evolutionary projects, specially communities. This will soon be available over the internet.
- We are in the beginning of our second work iteration where we will write a collaborative business plan for communities that will be available online as a creativecommons.orgcreative commons document.
- We are creating a storyfield integrated by digital media objects available through the internet and from our own production. It is a compilation that points to human emergence, utopias and community living, scenarios and global trends, evidence of the world transforming. You can already see some of this pieces in the site.
- We will soon create a socialmedia strategy because we believe that the internet is a tool for synchronicity and conversations.
- We want to begin the dialogue with those resonant to ICON global goals.

"A map of the world that does not include Utopia is not worth even glancing at, for it leaves out the one country at which Humanity is always landing. And when Humanity lands there, it looks out, and seeing a better country, sets sail. Progress is the realization of Utopias."
