“Imagine a proven heart-centered process and holistic practice that can help you navigate the fast-paced whitewater of 21st-century life, providing the clear guidance and community support you need to truly embody your awakening and have the impact you aspire to.”
Incorporating over 3 decades of research into human potentialand capturing it all in a simple, wholesome, and practical formIntegral practice pioneer Terry Patten offers, for the first time, his uniquely powerful approach to uniting head and heart, and finding dynamic balance in midst of our chaotic world.
Whether you’re new to the power of authentic spiritual practice or a veteran of the path, Terry’s experience working with hundreds of students across the globe will gently and effectively guide you to a simpler, deeper, and more effective Integral practice than you may ever have imagined was possible.
At some point in your life, you made a promise to yourselfand its been burning in your heart and soul ever since.
You vowed, to the best of your ability, to live a life of joy, meaning, and purposeto become a loving embodiment of goodness, beauty, and truth in this world.
That deep promise and potential you feel makes you part of a growing, global wave of visionaries, progressives, change-agents, and other conscious, caring people who are beginning to feel just like youwho are committed to their own growth and awakening, and to the evolution of our world.
And yet, like 95% of us, you’re probably also feeling frustrated in some significant ways.
Perhaps, like so many others, you feel that:
- For all the work youve done on yourself, you are still not truly and fully living what you know in your heart to be true.
- The world is getting faster and more complex every day, and while you long to make a bigger difference, it’s hard enough just to keep with the many obligations of your personal life.
- Your spiritual and other health-oriented practices are not as effective as you wish they could be, and thus youre not experiencing all the positive changes you know are possible.
- Too many approaches to spiritual practice are either too soft and mushy on the one hand, or too cerebral and disembodied on the otherand you long to strike a wholesome balance between body, mind, spirit, heart, and soul.
And, perhaps you suspect that what you really need is to simplify (without over-simplifying) so that you can finally feel truly centered, clear, joyful, creatively inspired, and grounded in your deepest source of power.
You know there is a simplicity beyond the accelerating complexity of the world. And you know there is a wholeness beyond the stress of our personal lives.
You know that you could be living more joyously from your heart, with intelligence, courage, passion, peace, purpose, and spiritual insight.
And you know it takes practice!
Its just a matter of making practice actually work in your life.
The good news is, youre in excellent company
The fact that you are even thinking about these issues is a sign that you deeply care. As difficult as growth and evolution can feel sometimes, you haven’t given up. That deep promise and potential in your heart is radically alive.
Also, you realize that what got us here is not going to get us where we need to go. As Albert Einstein said, “We cant solve a problem at the same level of thinking that created it.”
That’s why so many people across the world are turning on to integral and evolutionary forms of spiritual practice. They’ve found that only by consciously growing to the next level is it even possible to meet the challenges of our lives in the 21st century.
Some people have integral practices they been doing for decades. Others are just beginning on the path. And quite a few have practices that they can only do off and on, whenever their busy schedules and energy levels permit.
Yet across the spectrum of experience, our aspirations are very similar. We long for more elegance and simplicity, more heart and depth, and more effectiveness and efficiency in our spiritual lives.
The frustrations are similar as well. No matter how hard we try (and even those of us with a lot of experience feel this way!) our practices are not enabling to rise to all the challenges that life’s throwing at us.
Why sustainable spiritual breakthroughs are so elusive
Its important to realize: there are many forces in play that are beyond our control. So its crucial that we find the most powerful leverage points, if were going to get un-stuck and finally fulfill our life-promise.
These are three of our biggest challenges:
First, the world conspires against any kind of deep practice.
The accelerating pace of complexity, including the proliferation of new media and technologies, means that our lives are in a state of constant upheaval. While were more connected to each other than ever (which is great!) were also more dis-connected from ourselves.
Second, our spirituality has not caught up with the reality of our lives.
Many spiritual practices focus on only one or two areas, or they were conceived by teachers living centuries ago in a totally different world. Meanwhile, many of the purely heart-centered, feeling-based approaches are not intelligent or integral enough. Some are even in denial about the challenges we’re facing.
Third, the existing “integrative” approaches to spirituality are often too theoretical to be of immediate practical use.
While many cutting-edge thinkers have given us important new ways of looking at the world, and it’s invaluable to study these enlightened perspectives, at the end of the day what are frustrations leave us crying out for is a simple, doable, and heart-centered form of integral practice.
We also need a supportive community and compassionate coaching to help us re-align ourselves with a simpler, truer, happier, more intimate and embodied way of being.
So we must ask ourselves: What would an Integral practice look like that 1) meets the challenges of our complex and chaotic world; 2) is simple and sustainable in our messy, human lives; 3) balances body, mind, spirit, heart, and soul; and thus 4) helps us fulfill the deepest potentials of our being?
An Integral Practice with Heart
Terry Patten has been researching human potential for over 30 years.
In 2004 he joined the core team at Integral Institute that developed Integral Life Practice (ILP)a cutting-edge application of the Integral map created by Ken Wilber, uniting body, mind, spirit, and shadow. Soon he began teaching these revolutionary principles around the world.
In 2008 he published the acclaimed book Integral Life Practice: A 21st Century Blueprint for Physical Health, Emotional Balance, Mental Clarity, and Spiritual Awakening, co-authored with Ken Wilber. Many consider Integral Life Practice to be the first truly comprehensive approach to spiritual practice in the 21st century.
Yet in Terrys teaching work over the last decade, working with hundreds of students all over the world, he has taken the exploration a step furtherdiscovering the nitty-gritty issues that people encounter when they commit to living consciously in our busy and crazy world.
He began realizing the need to move from comprehensive to essentialto integrate head and heart. And he began uniting the core teachings of an Integral spiritual life.
Thats how he developed Integral Spiritual Practicea daily, do-able, heart-centered practice based on Integral principles. Neither mushy nor overly brainy, Integral Spiritual Practice is the next step in the evolution of spiritual practice.
The 8-week course will help you connectand keep reconnectingto the essential source of your spiritual power, and teach you how to tap into that power source in your daily life.
It will guide you through each step of establishing a sustainable practice that activates the full potentials of your body, mind, spirit, heart, and soul.
Its an ideal way to get the guidance, insight, and support you need to take the next step on your path.
Join now to connect with Terry and an incredible community of fellow integral spiritual practitioners, each committed to their own awakened embodiment as well as the evolution of the whole.
Together, well explore what it means to co-create a new cultural movement that brings an inspired, heart-centered intelligence to the challenges of living in a rapidly evolving world.

Special Live Bonus Workshop #1
The Farther Reaches of Human Potential ($47 value)
Activating Your Non-Ordinary Abilities
In this 75-minute eye-opening virtual workshop, Ken Wilber sets out to explain the non-ordinary capacities that lie dormant within us, and guides us into the kinds of states where we can get a taste of how those capacities can appear in us. We’ll also get him to talk about the famous YouTube video which features him stopping his brainwaves at will as indicated on the screen of a portable electroencephalograph (EEG).

Special Bonus Workshop #2
Diane Hamilton & Saniel Bonder
Unleashing the Energy Held Captive by Shadow ($47 value)
Those of us who are committed to evolving ourselves to evolve our world recognize that “you can’t see what you can’t see.” Whatever feels too threatening is repressed into the unconscious, where it sabotages our conscious intentions. That’s why working with the shadow is one of the core components of integral spiritual practice. This is the area that we most tend to fool ourselves, even as we grow.
In this 75-Minute virtual workshop, Diane, Saniel, and Terry will explore how we can liberate ourselves through shadow work to unleash our fuller potentials.

A Groundbreaking Opportunity from Awakening to Embodiment

Studying with Terry is a unique experience compared to any you may have had before. Even if you’ve studied with other spiritual teachers and guides, working with Terry is certain to move you forward on your path in an uniquely powerful way.
That’s because Terry’s 8-part process draws on his own extensive experience as today’s leading authority in Integral Spiritual Practice and gives you an unmatched and powerful developmental experience.

Praise from Terry’s Students
“With Terry’s leadership in the recent 9-month ‘Awakening Together’ course, I traveled into and through arenas of Heart-opening, Shadow-dissolution, Consciousness-expansion, and We-Space Awareness. Terry’s deep dedication to his work and vision, along with his extraordinary knowledge and skill, provide beneficial, inspiring, and beautiful guidance along the path of Integral Evolutionary Spirituality. It is with heartfelt gratitude for his teaching that I recommend the Integral Spirituality telecourse.”
Marianne B. Rowe, MS, Marriage & Family Therapist
“With so many available paths to pursue in one’s unfolding, Terry’s ILP brings it all together in an easy to grok format with an elegantly written context that inspires and opens just by reading alone. If you get a chance to experience his wisdom through the spoken word….jump!…it will amaze you!”
“Terry has the unique ability to be able to speak the Dharma to many levels of intellectual and personal development at once. I often find that what he says will take root in my psyche and blossom over time. But what really makes me willing to follow Terry wherever he goes is the extraordinary care I’ve felt in his presence, as his student. That is a unique experience for me in relationship to a teacher, I don’t exactly know how he manages such a loving and devoted transmission to so many, but I cherish and am inspired by it.
And finally, even as Terry’s ability to parse enormous complexity soars at the heights of the best philosophers, he still is willing to speak to the mundane and daily practice of managing a body, shadow work, relationships, and other personal but essential challenges of being human today. He is willing to “carry water and chop wood” for Evolution.”
Christina Sophie, embodiment coach, tantra teacher.

More Praise from Terry’s Students
“Terry brings to his spiritual teaching a seemingly endless archive of life experience and intrepid research that he beautifully synthesizes with his native gifts of good cheer, quick insight, clear communication, and a truly caring heart. I highly recommend his work to anyone pursuing the path of enlightenment.”
Byron Belitsos, coauthor, A Return to Healing
“I can joyously attest to the full-hearted ‘leadership’ of Terry Patten. He joins us in a mutual search, lovingly outing the blocks to our own fulfillment and energy for life.”
Richard G. Page, M.P.A., President, Conference Recording Service, Inc.
“As a student of Terry’s in an Integral Spiritual Practice group, I learned much about how the different dimensions of selfbody, emotions, mind, and spiritrelate to one another, an area on which he skillfully teaches and authentically models. Before encountering his teaching, I had encountered many integral ideas in books, which deeply inspired me. Terry helped me understand what embodying high-soaring integral ideas looked like and felt like.
Though for much of Western culture, and certainly my own athletic training, the physical realm is utterly divorced from the spiritual, Terry teaches exercises that connect bodily energies to spiritual awareness and imagery. While he possesses a keen knowledge of integral philosophy and insights into the levels and lines of development, he also brings a rare kind of passion and empathy to his teaching.
For those interested in putting the lofty ideas of integral theory into real lived-out practice, I would heartily recommend Terry’s work.”
Clayton McClintock, Graduate Student, Harvard Divinity School
