How it works

Shaped by interdisciplinary wisdom.

In fact, it’s the very basis of the Integral Coaching approach. Our curriculum and methodology draw from a deep and evolving wellspring of the latest scientific inquiry and wisdom traditions from across the globe.

Find practical and powerful ways of expanding your client’s capacity and skillfulness, rooted in trauma-informed knowledge from neuroscience, polyvagal theory, somatic movement, process work, attachment theory, established wisdom traditions and many more. Learn More.

Learn in community

Develop your understanding with support along the way.

Our cohort-based approach is unlike any other. Many of our students and graduates forge lifelong relationships and networks that last long beyond your training.

We design our programs with spaciousness and community in mind, so you can reflect on what you’re learning, experience hands-on practice and ask questions of our diverse, expert faculty.

The path to certification
