As we enter the second decade of the new millennium, it’s difficult to find a committed seeker has not been effected in some way by a community scandal involving the sexual conduct of a spiritual leader. Indeed, sexual controversy is so common in post-modern spirituality that “It just seems to go with the territory.”
In this recording, Ross Hostetter, a co-founder of Boulder Integral, explored the territory of spiritual leadership and offered a perspective different from the standard psychological insights involving shadow, treatment, boundaries, power dynamics and drama triangles. He presented a case that our most cherished and unexamined spiritual ‘truths’– our ideas about God and love– are in fact the root cause of our current problems. Ross has been through the collapse of a spiritual community and the loss of his priest, best friend, and spiritual teacher over pedophilia involving his own son. From a distance of more than a decade past this event, Ross sought to present a call for something radically new: a second-order change that enrolls every person in a spiritual community as part of the solution.
