According to the big bang theory, in the beginning (or before the beginning, if you will), all matter in the universe was concentrated into a single point (known as a singularity) at an extremely high temperature, and then it exploded with tremendous force. From an expanding superheated cloud of sub-atomic particles, atoms gradually formed, then stars, galaxies, planets and finally life. In our case there were at least two singularities (sic!) and an extremely high potential energy around us. In Krakow, Poland between September 21st to 25th, at the SIETAR Congress in Krakau Kazuma met Anna. SIETAR Europa is Europe’s largest association of interculturalists and part of the worldwide SIETAR network. Kazuma was the member of the SIETAR Deutschland board and intercultural dialog facilitator interested in Pirce C….Anna was the intercultural trainer fascinated by the integral theory. She presented the idea of Integral Communication. Her input: Cross cultural communication seen as a part of integral communication. Ken Wilber‘s Integral Model, seemed to be a missing link in Kazuma’s communication research.
One year later in 2012 JOIN FORCES WITH CREATIVE LIKE-MINDED PEOPLE resulted in the organisation of the SIETAR Forum 2012+38, International Conference 27-29 September 2012 in Berlin, Germany. In this preparation year during our intensive workshops in Mannheim and Berlin the idea of cosmopolitan communication connected with the integral theory and transparent communication were born, but it took us one year preparation and two intensive workshops in Mannheim and Berlin to shape the Institute for Global Integral Competence.
