About Brandon Norgaard

I’m an author, researcher, and community organizer.  I am the founder of The Enlightened Worldview Project and I have contributed to several organizations in the areas of community development, sensemaking, educational reform, civic engagement, and mindfulness practice.  I am based in Northern California and I have a background in software engineering.  I came into the fields of sociology and philosophy because of deep interest and also because I had some ideas brewing in my mind for several years that I thought could be beneficial to the greater efforts at reforming society and addressing the meta-crisis.  My main areas of interest are integral theory, metamodernism, bildung, phenomenology, and social science.

My contributions and associations include:

  • I am a member of the nascent North American Bildung Network and the Global Bildung Network
  • I have assisted with GameB organizational planning and I have served as an inter-organizational ambassador to promote better coordination between organizations and movements
  • I am a member of Gregg Henriques’ Theory of Knowledge Society
  • I conducted research analyzing and comparing the various approaches to addressing the meta-crisis, which I published here.  I presented my findings in a session of the web series The Stoa.
  • I have appeared in an episode of the podcast series The Integral Stage, UTOKing with Gregg, and Meta-Ideological Politics.
