Adam Hudson, Bridging Communities/Building Communities: Politicizing A Depoliticized Culture

(This presentation was a part of CIIS Multiversity February 2008)

CIIS holds a commitment to integral government and it is my perspective that this ideal is not present but always-to-come. In an American culture where individualism is pervasive, the practice of grassroots community building is not a conscious commitment by any majority, even at CIIS. Interests in bridging communities and politicizing our own student body should be one of the first commitments of a community emphasizing diversity, cultural difference, consciousness studies, integral government, and especially spirituality. The aim of the new consciousness must first be to live-up to the legacies that spiritual pioneers set forth and taught – spiritual and integral political movement.

Adam Hudson has always found it important to live, care, be understanding, and act responsibility to self/other/world. He is now beginning to practice speaking and teaching in fulfillment of this life calling. Adam grew up in Chattanooga, Tennessee and lives in relationship to the Christianity and class consciousness that marks that area of the world. Now he has residence at Glide Methodist Memorial Church singing, volunteering, and learning in a community that is very spiritual and political – actively feeding the poor and providing underprivileged persons health services. Last semester, Adam finished his M.A. in Philosophy, Cosmology, and Consciousness at CIIS, and is currently a Ph.D. candidate in Social and Cultural Anthropology.
