In this paper, I develop an integral futures perspective on the global collective. The emergence of a global mind, soul or any kind of collective structure requires simultaneous development in behavioural, social, psychological and cultural realms. Development in any one of these realms has the potential to stimulate corresponding development in other realms. I focus particularly on two social practices that work together to draw out and integrate multiple perspectives and stimulate personal and cultural development. These practices are deliberation across difference and integral facilitation. Both have the potential to support the emergence of an inclusive global collective.
