The lowest form of consciousness is the tribal stage. As we begin our exploration of integral theory, this podcast exposes the many ways that tribal consciousness still remains in our “so-called” evolved world.

The ruin of the tribe is not its eradication, but its transformation as it is integrated into wider aspects of the truth.
