Youâ€™re passionate about evolving yourself and our world.
And you know there is one thing thatâ€™s essential for your personal and our collective evolution: an authentic transformative practice.
Thatâ€™s the â€śopen secretâ€ť of spirituality in our time. The ancient approaches to transformation are no longer sufficient. We need a radically inclusive, customized path that empowers us in our daily life and provides us with the inspiration and insight to live aligned with our deepest truth.
We know that if we are truly committed to our conscious evolution and the transformation of our world, we need a daily, integral spiritual practice.
Yet for too many of us, something gets in the way of actually doing a truly integral practice that we love, and that we know in our hearts will transform us.
It could be the stress or busyness of life, or the demands of work and family. Or it could be that weâ€™ve tried beforeâ€”many times evenâ€”but after a while we get distracted, or we donâ€™t feel like weâ€™ve found the right teacher or community yet.
In one way or another, we get blocked, sabotaged, or led astray from our intention to truly live, breathe, and be our integral practice in all its vibrant dimensions. And in doing so, we delay and defer the call to actualize who we most fully and freely are.
Itâ€™s not hard to see why. In our personal lives, we’re dealing with nearly constant interruptions, distractions, and stressors. And on a global scale, weâ€™re witnessing huge economic, social, and environmental challenges that cry out for a response.
With so many demands on our time and attention, itâ€™s no wonder that itâ€™s such a challenge to establish a spiritual practice, let alone a daily one!
And yet, if youâ€™re like so many of us, you feel the call from within to participate in a new wave of conscious evolutionâ€”and you deeply feel the imperative to create a better future for yourself, your loved ones, and our world.
In moments of silence and stillness, you can taste the profound transformation that will happen on all levels when you finally make the choice and truly commit to a daily, integral practice.

The Next Step in the Evolution of Spiritual Practice
For almost 40 years, Terry Patten has been researching an extraordinary range of transformative practices and exploring the highest reaches of our human potential.
After decades of in-depth learning and practice with some of the worldâ€™s greatest living spiritual teachers, he joined the core team at Integral Institute that developed Integral Life Practice (ILP)â€”a cutting-edge application of the Integral map created by Ken Wilber, uniting body, mind, spirit, and soul. 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 Terryâ€™s teaching work over the last decade, working with thousands of students all over the world, he has taken the exploration a step furtherâ€”discovering the subtle barriers and 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 â€ścomprehensiveâ€ť to â€śessentialâ€ťâ€”to fully integrate the head and heart. And he began distilling the core teachings of a truly awakened spiritual life.
Thatâ€™s how he was inspired to create Integral Spiritual Practiceâ€”a daily, personalized, heart-centered practice based on integral and evolutionary principles.
With a conscious integration of mind and heart, Integral Spiritual Practice is the next step in the evolution of spiritual practice.

“Terry Patten is a magnet for new evolutionary solutions. He has powerfully engaged the practices of the world’s great spiritual traditions, and now serves as an impassioned pathfinder and bridge-builder, a champion for the betterment of all beings. As an evolutionary leader, Terry puts the flame under the crucible of becoming, thus catalyzing the sacred inward alchemy of transformation.”â€”Jean Houston, A Mythic Life
“Terry Patten is an authentic Evolutionary, and one of today’s most dynamic, original, and important teachers.

Exclusive Bonus Virtual Workshops
In addition to the Course Sessions and Pre-Recorded Coaching and Q&A calls with Terry, you’ll receive a series of bonus virtual sessions with some of today’s leading teachers.
Offered free of charge, each 90-minute session will take you further into the specific skills, tools, and perspectives you need to evolve your self to help evolve our world.
Bonus Audio Workshop #1
Ken Wilber & Terry Patten
The Farther Reaches of Human Potential ($47 value)
How to Activate Your Super-Normal 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). As a spiritual practitioner with a regular sustained practice, you won’t be seeking these supernormal abilities but you’ll naturally be able to allow dormant higher capacities to unfold, especially unfolding from a deep sense of empathy and love for others and the world.
Learn all that and much more in this unique free workshop.
About Ken Wilber
Ken Wilber is the most widely translated academic writer in America, with 25 books translated into some 30 foreign languages, and is the first philosopher-psychologist to have his Collected Works published while still alive. Wilber is an internationally acknowledged leader and the preeminent scholar of the Integral stage of human development, which continues to gather momentum around the world.

Ken Wilber is the founder of Integral Institute, Inc., and the co-founder of Integral Life, Inc..
Bonus Audio 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.

What Terry’s Students Are Saying…
This course will be with me for the rest of my life. If you are a sincere aspirant, this course will divide your life in two parts: before and after.
â€”MarĂa LĂłpez, Manizales, Caldas, Colombia
This course has made a more profoundly positive difference for me than any other activity I’ve engaged in within the past 30 years. Specifically, the practices are in a format that actually CAN be incorporated into a very busy life (I work at a job more than 70 hours per week). Terryâ€™s right, this really makes a difference! For the first time, I have been able to actually do a formal morning spiritual practice and this has allowed me to really “feel” myself and feel my heart opening again. I am so grateful for finding a taste of the joy I remember from my youngest childhood years. This course is the experience of a lifetime and cannot be missed.
â€”Anne Little, M.D. Los Alamos, CA
This has been, hands down, the most effective, transformative and enjoyable practice endeavor I have ever undertaken. I feel infinite gratitude towards Terry and his team for this experience. Terry embodies the perfect blend of wisdom and compassion, of rationality and feeling, and of theory and practice. He truly is an Integral Master. It has given a practical, do-able structure to my spiritual and life practice.
In particular the 3D workout and the moments practices have been revolutionary for me. I’ve found that my overall mood has significantly improved over the last months. My energy level has also increased and my moments of negativity, apathy etc. have become less frequent and easier to ‘snap out’ of
â€”Philip Watson, Mexico City
I am an Emeritus Professor of Education, specializing in Transformative Learning at the University of Toronto. In our institution Terry would be considered a Master Teacher. This experience of being with him and my fellow travelers has been amazing. I experienced Terry as a person with incredible honesty and authenticity and care. His commitment to the learning process throughout was abundantly evident.
â€”Edmund O’Sullivan Toronto, Ontario, Canada

More From Terry’s Students…
When I heard Terry speak on January 1st 2011 at the Integral Spiritual Experience Conference I felt inspired to no longer withhold my gift and to step forward with gusto. Participating in this fabulous course reminded me to return to a daily morning practice of physical exercise, meditation, and reading. This has allowed me to be more grounded and productive in my mission to support people to co-create healthy Integral Relationships. I highly recommend this course for everyone who wants to live a freer, more meaningful and responsible life. Terry Patten is my Hero.
â€”Martin Ucik, Author of â€śIntegral Relationships: A Manual for Menâ€ť
I’m almost astounded to what degree I now do want to do the daily practices and actually do them. Feeling, breathing, being the Mystery, as often as possible, clearly deepens my YES to life. What I value most, is the Core 3-D workout, to me it’s like a body prayer; bowing and prostrating myself offer me a special opportunity, daily, to feel into awe and wonder, to express my gratitude for all the ways in which I am daily being blessed.
â€”Elizabeth Jud, Kingston, Ontario
This course was an incredibly valuable experience for me, and the reason is simple: Terry Patten is an incredible spiritual teacher: articulate, possessing amazing depth yet highly accessible, humble, skillful, of the highest integrity, thoroughly grounded in Ken Wilber’s work yet offering an original synthesis that is uniquely his.
â€”Paul McHugh, Minneapolis, MN
I’ve gone from thinking I don’t have time for a deeper practice to knowing I have time–every moment is an opportunity. I have enjoyed the “lecture” sessions and listen to them again and again, each time finding new wisdom. My husband has expressed interest in the course–and I can’t tell you how grateful I am for that!
