In our foray through various foresight methods we found an interesting practice called Integral Futures. Borrowing from the philosopher Ken Wilber, Integral Futures talk about the place of the practitioner/facilitator and the participants in a foresight exercise. How much do our own histories and personalities influence what futures we might envision?

In the words of Floyd, Burns and Ramos:

Methodology, though, is about more than the tools used: it involves careful attention to the stance taken by the practitioner in the use of tools to enact knowledge and understanding.
