Main intention and format of our Colloquium:

The online colloquium aims to  connect integrally oriented and like-minded researchers and practitioners by offering them a forum to exchange experiences around innovative approaches to complex social challenges. It is designed to strengthen the dialog and connection between IFIS' members and friends, mostly spread out in different countries and even continents.
We invite new colleagues to join us and be part of IFIS’ community of integral research and inquiry. New presenters are always welcome.

"The IFIS Colloquium is self-selected group of individuals with years of combined experience in we-space, circling and insight practices such as Bohm Dialogue, Collective Presencing, and Theory-U process. There is a lot of capacity to hold various flavors of negative capability. We ranged across a palette of silences, sharing on many levels, dimensions and octaves with verbal sharing being just one. We discovered that we can break the tension or extend it, we can agree to see it all and be seen, and to just notice our reactivity without making it wrong. In that blurring of the boundaries between giving and receiving shined glimpses of co-generative potential." (Lisa Norton)

Online-Kolloquium Nr. 70: Chronobiologie - Macht und Potenziale unserer genetischen Rhythmen

Date and time

Chronobiologie ist, vereinfacht gesagt, die Wissenschaft von der inneren Uhr. Den meisten bekannt dürften die beiden sogenannten Chronotypen „Eule (Spättyp)“ und „Lerche (Frühtyp)“ sein.
Weniger bekannt ist jedoch zum einen die Tatsache, dass diese beiden Typen mit jeweils 20% Bevölkerungsanteil lediglich die Extremausprägungen in der Gesellschaft und keineswegs die Mehrheit darstellen. Zudem kann ein Spättyp in Deutschland durchaus ein Frühtyp in einem anderen Land sein.
