Integral European Conference (IEC), www.integraleuropeanconference.com.  This is the largest Integral conference in the world, drawing Integral practitioners from every continent. The conferences are every two years, with a more informal ‘ReGathering’ in the years between.  A great place to be inspired by, and learn from the leading practitioners in Integral from around the world. And a great place to meet other people for whom Integral is an inspiring force in their lives.

Integral Life, integrallife.com. A website about all things Integral.

The Western Chan Fellowshipwww.westernchanfellowship.org. Chan is the Chinese predecessor of Zen (which developed in Japan). Steve attends an excellent weekly sitting and discussion group in Ashburton. There are local groups in the UK and elsewhere in Europe, and you can go on various Chan retreats.  The Guiding Teacher in the UK, Chan Master Simon Child, 淨宏傳法 Jing-hong Chuan-fa, is the second Western Dharma heir of the late Chan Master Sheng Yen of Taiwan, receiving Dharma Transmission in 2000. The Founding Teacher was Master Sheng Yen’s first Western Dharma Heir, Dr John Crook.

Gaia House, www.gaiahouse.co.uk. The excellent retreat centre in Devon, offering (mostly) silent retreats, within the international framework of the Insight Meditation Society.

Devon Irish Set Dancers. www.devonirishsetdancers.uk. As well as enjoying playing wonderful lively Irish jigs, polkas and reels, Steve also enjoys dancing to them at the Irish set dancing evenings in Newton Abbot, Devon, each Wednesday. The basic steps are not difficult, the music is great to dance to, and it’s a very friendly crowd who meet at the Jolly Farmer, under the expert guidance of the lovely Maggie Daniel. Come and give it a go!

See the Music Performance page for links to the ensembles Steve plays with.
