ABSTRACT
This article discusses Ken Wilber's theory of everything and its application in financial planning. In the book A Theory of Everything, Wilber postulates that an integral vision--or a genuine Theory of Everything--attempts to include matter, body, mind, soul, and spirit as they appear in self, culture, and nature. A vision that attempts to be comprehensive, balanced, inclusive. A vision that therefore embraces science, art, and morals; that equally includes disciplines from physics to spirituality, biology to aesthetics, sociology to contemplative prayer; that shows up in integral politics, integral medicine, integral business, and integral spirituality. Traditional financial advisory services are classified in the upper right quadrant of Wilber's model. The client is seen through the data. In the lower left quadrant are the cultural differences, which include money and what it means to be successful. This quadrant is important in the financial planning process because it also contains the inter-subjective experience between client and planner. The lower right quadrant reflects the collective behavior. An integral model also includes levels and lines of development within each quadrant.
