Integral means "essential or necessary for completeness or wholeness"
In Integral Relationships we “integrate” the essential and complete relationship wisdom from pre-modernity, modernity and post-modernity that is available to us today and necessary to co-create healthy and enduring "wholistic" love relationships between opposite and equal partners with equal rights and responsibilities.
Couples in Integral Relationships balance and harmonize healthy feminine and masculine polarities at the survival/material, sexual/body, empowerment, emotional/heart, expressive, mind, and soul/spiritual levels
Based in deep intimacy, passion and commitment, these couples heal, learn, grow and awaken together to share their authentic evolutionary life purpose that serves the greatest good for the largest number of people.

12 Core Values for Integral Relationship Evolutionaries:*
We choose to love instead of something that happens to us or that we attract.
We see the depth of our heart and soul connection as well as the level of humility and devotion to our relationship as an indicator of our psychological health and spiritual realization.
We transcend our primary fantasy and base our relationship in Being values, versus material, sexual, or emotional neediness.
We use our relationship for ongoing mutual learning, healing, growth and awakening towards the capacity to love unconditionally.
We hold an evolutionary perspective and have reached or strive towards an integral, transpersonal or higher level of consciousness.
We continually develop, balance and harmonize our healthy feminine and masculine polarities and meet each other as opposites and equals to create synergy at the level of all the seven chakras.
Share a purpose for our relationship which is larger than either individual and offered in service for the greatest good of the largest number of people, while also preserving the relative sovereignty of each individual.
We have an Integral Life Practice (ILP) with modules for the health of our body, mind, spirit/soul, and shadow, as well as ethics, sexuality, work, emotions, and relationships.
We make an explicit agreement to share our truths without the need for validation or acceptance from our partner, and to own our emotional reactions to our partner's reality.
We set and respect each other's healthy boundaries.
We share material resources and pursue an environmentally and socially responsible lifestyle.
We engage in sacred/tantric sexuality and practice monogamy out of choice instead of fear.
