Integral Paradigm of Knowledge
Integral Paradigm of Knowledge (IPK) is the concept developed by a group of researchers since 2001.
Art-Studio “12 Qualities” is a part of IPK Educational Network dedicated to the theoretical and applied research in the studies of the Faculties of Consciousness, fundamentals and profundities of their functionalities in relations to each other and fields of application. We define them as major approaches to Knowledge: psychological, philosophical, linguistic, sociological, artistic and scientific.
These approaches are based on our major Faculties of Consciousness, such as thinking, seeing, speaking, hearing, feeling/emoting, and being in the body. Diving deeper into their functionality and interconnectedness brings us closer to the understanding of the Integral Paradigm of Knowledge.
“Our consciousness is like a young bird; it must learn to use its wings”
KALVI is a group of volunteers living and working in the international town, Auroville, in South India.
We create a new kind of educational games (activities) which nurture a child’s inner awareness.
We are working from our hearts guided by an inner inspiration. We believe in the fact that change starts on an individual level. As each individual comes into contact with his or her core uniqueness, s/he begins to realise the deeper beauty in life.
We want children to get an education that opens their consciousness so as to stimulate their all-around sensibilities.
About our games:
We pay close attention to memory, emotions and thinking while developing our educational materials. We want the learner to develop thinking skills that are rational, logical, analytic, systematic, strategic, tactical, divergent, convergent, conceptual, symbolic, creative and intuitive.
We try to produce new educational materials that in this hectic day and age can also offer a child the opportunity to develop silence in the mind, reflection and introspection.
Art Studio “12 Qualities” contributes to KALVI initiatives.
