The Norwegian version of Ken Wilber's "The Integral Vision" is going green with Eco-Libris

Last October we announced on our collaboration with the Norwegian publisher Flux to plant trees for their publications. It started then with a wonderful book, "Dyp glede (Deep Joy): Arne Næss on deep ecology", and it is continuing now with another great book: The Norwegian Version of "The Integral Vision" by Ken Wilber.

Ken Wilber is a great philosopher and writer and for us it's a great honor to be involved with it. 625 trees will be planted with our planting partners for the first edition of the book and our logo can be found on the book's back cover.

What this book is about? here's a description of "The Integral Vision" (or in its full name: The Integral Vision: A Very Short Introduction to the Revolutionary Integral Approach to Life, God, the Universe, and Everything) from Shambala Publications' website:

Suppose we took everything that all the various world cultures have to tell us about human potential—about psychological, spiritual, and social growth—and identified the basic patterns that connect these pieces of knowledge. What if we attempted to create an all-inclusive map that touches the most important factors from all of the world's great traditions?

Ken Wilber's Integral Vision provides such a map. Using all the known systems and models of human growth—from the ancient sages to the latest breakthroughs in cognitive science—it distills their major components into five simple elements, and, moreover, ones that readers can verify in their own experience right now.

In any field of interest, such as business, law, science, psychology, health, art, or everyday living and learning—the Integral Vision ensures that we are utilizing the full range of resources for the situation, leading to a greater likelihood of success and fulfillment. With easily understood explanations, exercises, and familiar examples, The Integral Vision shows how we can accelerate growth and development to higher, wider, deeper ways of being, embodied in self, shared in community, and connected to the planet, which can literally help with everything from spiritual enlightenment to business success to personal relationships.

The Norwegian version can be found on Flux' website at:
