Miriam van Groen

Miriam has been part of the Experience Integral board since she took part in the first Summer Seminar in 2009. Just minutes before leaving for the retreat, she had handed in her Master’s thesis in International Development Studies and was ready for a new chapter in her life. Integral provided a theoretical basis for many of the observations she had made about the world. But even more importantly, the community that was forming around that theory in The Netherlands and the rest of Europe provided a very welcoming and nourishing home base for her.
Since then, she has become part of the board of Integral Europe, which organized the first Integral European Conference in Budapest in May of 2014. In early 2013, she also came into contact with the Integral Life Practice of Circling, a relational meditation that brings the meditative awareness and acceptance of what arises in the moment to the connection with yourself and others. This very direct and yet loving form of feedback further transformed her life. She is now working on bringing Circling and other Integral practices to whomever is interested through her company Catalyze. Together with Foreno she organizes this year’s monthly practice groups, to which you are very welcome!
