Mark Allan Kaplan: Integral Goes to the Movies

Dear BAI friends,

Join us for an evening of movie clips, popcorn, and some serious fun with Integral film theorist, filmmaker, and media psychologist Mark Allan Kaplan in Integral Goes to the Movies.

Using various movie clips Mark will show us how to be a savvy spotter of Integral trends in popular media and deepen our understanding of the ways current media and technologies are helping to transition us into an Integral Age.

Mark will unpack how films as diverse as Groundhog Day and Inception, and TV shows like Lost and Sense8, map the evolution of consciousness. You will...
  • Learn how Integral and all the other altitudes of consciousness are embedded in our media
  • How these media altitudes mirror, help or hinder the evolution of our individual and collective consciousness
  • Discover which movies viscerally represent the different Integral lenses
  • Get a copy of Mark's Top 10 Integral Movies List
Going to the movies usually isn't a solo affair so we set a special price for couples. So bring a friend or a date for a fun and stimulating evening of pop culture.

And, yes, we really will provide popcorn...

We hope to see you at the event!
