Integrity
For Future work

An initiative to reinstate
the trustworthiness of man

Integrity For Future calls you in. To a conscious choice: to constantly look for ways to improve your level of integrity and contribute to the rehabilitation of the trustworthiness of humankind.

Our off-track way of living is causing us much inner and outer wounding. Many gifted people in our society are professionally taking care of these wounds through their highly committed work.

People with a deep knowing about the nature of being human and the conditions needed for us to flourish.

 


Often they are visionaries – without a mandate, because their contribution has been reduced to serve as “firefighters” in a self-destructive world.

We can do better. We want to get back to our original mission as creative healers and see-ers, leading our current and future societies into the realms of joyful co-creation that we know is possible.


Our approach

There is a choice to make

Integrity is not about morals, and neither is our initiative and the content of this website. We just address what is missing. To go beyond fighting opinions and polarization and to give integrity itself the central place in our societies that it deserves. The aim is to create an understanding on how essential reliability is when it comes to working on the challenges of our time. It is about the rehabilitation of the trustworthiness of humankind itself.

“A good life for all” must include the integrity of everybody and everything. All living beings in the planet´s ecosystem as well as the natural elements. When we address our burning current and future questions, we cannot simply focus our efforts on technical solutions or political compromises between different stakeholders.

Our most powerful leverage is a self-commitment to the highest level of personal integrity possible to reach at any time and in any context. When this commitment is applied by many, and when structurally implemented as a core value in our societies, we create the solid ground of safety and reliability which is needed to succeed in our common work.

The journey begins with integrity to oneself, followed by the trust in integrity in “the other” – which can then result in a new trust in our overall human tribe. Soul-sick people cannot take positive action. Ignored people cannot be creative. Shamed people cannot enjoy. Many “helpers” have been working on healing these fundamental issues for a long time. We call them out of their specific niches, to claim their seat and to join the cause of integrity at the very centre of our society.

The Origin

it all began with a dilemma

As a passionate trauma therapist and process facilitator a question has always been with me: Can I stay loyal to my professional integrity, whilst at the same time being involved in social structures which dis-esteem and violate my core values? Am I not, in doing so, a servant of the very structures I don’t agree with? I come to a point where I can no longer give my healing work into that context of “wrongness”. And yet this is the reality I live in. To start to reestablish integrity in my life I must stand up for the value of integrity itself. Walking my talk in making my dilemma public, encouraging others to become advocates for their soul’s integrity too – for the sake of the integrity of the whole.

This initiative is born out of the realm of the individual.
It doesn’t claim to be “complete” or “just” in any general sense.
We are allowing it to have its own yummy taste and personal flavour. At the same time we would like to embark with you on a lively dialogue which serves our shared purpose – to reinstate and prove the trustworthiness of our human species.
The discourse is opened.

The Form

shaping integrity

A sense for integrity has at least two dimensions. We cannot deny the existence of a general common cultural ground that gives us a sense of what integrity and reliability are. Basic qualities might be inclusiveness and a live-affirming orientation. And it can never be about a single absolute truth. For each of us there also exists a very personal layer which has to do with our unique journey and the specific experiences that grew us. This is where qualities such as a sense for self-dignity, self-awareness and self-honesty come in.

Relying on integrity is a journey, to come to integrity a process. The inner movement always includes a certain form of dialogue – within oneself, with the circumstances, sometimes with others. Integrity For Future seeks to stimulate conscious choice to notice and seek this dialogue, and to give it a central place in one’s personal life and in society.

Our project sets off for a journey too. To begin with we are introducing a choice of existing initiatives that offer concrete support in personal growth, increased visibility for the marginalized-ones and conscious decision making in politics, economics and science. Alongside our growing collection offered here, there is an active field of people focusing explicitly on “integrity” in an explorative exchange – special projects and cooperations are arising from there. Organizations seeking a higher level of integrity are welcome to ask us for advice.

Soul Integrity

Becoming Essence

The initial impulse for the Integrity For Future initiative is born throughout the work of the Becoming Essence Feel & Think Tank. Becoming Essence is all about unleashing the treasure of being human, standing in the full responsibility that comes with it, in reverence of the beauty of life itself – called integrity. Acknowledging how difficult life can be, it nevertheless lays in our own hands to seek support and healing to mature and gain integrity. As we engage in the world with more responsibility it becomes even more important to embody trustworthiness in the highest way possible. Trust, our most urgent societal need, comes from soul integrity.

What would it look like if we were in integrity for the future? Not only for our current selfs, not only for what is currently happening but also for the future of our species, of this planet. That anchoring for me is what really makes a difference.
