Purposeful Pathways: Professional Practice and The Coach's Journey

Human well-being thrives on meaning and purpose. Integrating meaning and purpose together into a coherent livelihood and professional practice is a challenge. It is challenging to cultivate a practitioner habitat attuned to local worlds and practitioner frames such as coaching, psychotherapy, facilitating, managing, and entrepreneurship.

To achieve meaning, purpose and livelihood, most professional practices require creating a generative entrepreneurial ecosystem. This course weaves together developing leadership competencies for professionals necessary for transforming the professions in ways that realign the professions to their deeper and sacred purpose. Finding one's true calling, one's sacred purpose, enables us to lead lives in which our passions and capabilities are forged into our livelihood.

Transforming Collective and Developmental Trauma: The Social Healing Practitioner’s Journey

Individual and collective trauma is an actuality, worldwide. This course explores current issues in the field of psychological trauma through personal, historical, cultural, and archetypal perspectives. Its intent is threefold: To develop the student’s ability to engage their own personal traumatic material (generally experienced through fragmented images that are the common aftermath of overwhelming experience); to integrate imaginal approaches to trauma with principles inherent in the recovery model; and to identify key somatic, cognitive, affective, behavioral, and neurological effects associated with trauma.

Integral Voices

integral voices branding badge

"Things fall apart; the center cannot hold" wrote Yeats about 100 years ago in his poem “The Second Coming.” While in the deafening incoherence of an unraveling center, inquiring and transforming conversations necessarily move to the edge. Edges are associated with danger, crisis, complexity, possibility, the unknown, and unknowable. We are now in edge times as never before.

Protected from the noise, a dialogic commons is a place that nurtures generative listening. A listening where the powers of resonance foster the emergence of creative imagination and a re-sacralizing coherence. Integral Voices convenes dialogues at evolving edges to catalyze a renaissance of real human development and the seeding of possible worlds.

Making Possible Worlds

Human beings thrive on meaning and purpose. Bringing meaning and purpose together into a coherent professional livelihood is a challenge.

The Dancer and The Dance thumbnail

The Dancer and The Dance

Individuals, families, teams, organizations, communities, and societies are all human systems nested within larger systems. Living systems change for better or worse without intentional or deliberate efforts, sometimes in profound ways. However, a portal to transformative change also opens when a system begins to be aware of itself. There is power and magic to systems change through collective intention and collaborative learning when there is systemic awareness of possibilities, including unintended consequences.
