Are you called to live on the leading edge of evolution, awakening new potentials in yourself and incarnating more divinity
in the world?
Are you curious about how to combine multiple traditions of spiritual practice in a way that is integrated, coherent and leads to a full-spectrum spiritual life?
In the 20th century, a powerful new theoretical and philosophical framework emerged, beginning in 1914 with Sri Aurobindo’s description of the process of uniting all the aspects of one’s being with the Divine, and reaching a crescendo with the work of “the Einstein of consciousness research,” Ken Wilber.
This framework was dubbed “Integral” by sages and scholars because it unified more streams of wisdom and knowledge than anything preceding it.
And now, integral theory is giving rise to a next wave of full-spectrum spiritual practice that’s as intimate and personal as it is transcendent. This next generation of practice draws from the sacred essence of major psychological schools and spiritual lineages to form a unified, balanced and powerfully transformative path.
We are calling this new work the cultivation of the “Integral Soul.” It’s a multi-dimensional approach to awakening and transforming all levels of our being and infusing them with grace and love. The path of the Integral Soul leads us towards unification of body and soul, heart and mind, Spirit and personality. It represents an alchemy of many wisdom schools, each honored for their unique contribution to creating evolved human beings.
The Integral Soul perspective offers a comprehensive view of the unfolding of your soul’s journey so that you can become the most holistic, awake, deep and clear being you can be. The path of the Integral Soul is a birthing ground for true evolutionaries — people like you who are living at the leading edge of our culture.
A true evolutionary embraces the adventure of the soul. It unfolds uniquely for each of us, but the evolutionary is always open to new possibilities, willing to engage in authentic practice to reveal new insights and breakthrough understandings.
On the path of the Integral Soul, you learn to surrender to the deeper invisible currents that pattern your psyche, and to conduct that energy into your daily life. You literally become the embodiment of evolution itself, always seeking new possibilities for the creative expression of eros, love and life.
To enter into this state of evolutionary flow requires finding your way into the profound silent presence of your Soul or daemon. You need to allow the deepest currents of your soul’s purpose to flow tangibly through you into reality.
As you do, the universe conspires to support you. You radiate more grace. You are blessed with more intuitive clarity. You incarnate more love. You embody more transcendent wisdom.
You become the head, heart and hands of Spirit — serving as a conduit for Divine energy to work through you to serve the great challenges of our time.
It is this electrifying vision that beckons you to live as an evolutionary on the Integral Soul path.
A Truly 21st Century Approach
The path of the Integral Soul reflects the emergence of a different kind of mysticism, one that awakens us into the boundlessness of our universal True Nature while also opening us to the deep personal presence and guidance of our personal unique Soul Nature.
To authentically express our Integral Soul requires more than just meditation, yoga and psychological work. It means integrating at least three different streams that represent major lineages of transformational work.
First, it means accessing the archetypal dimensions of your consciousness, first explored by pioneers like Carl Jung and James Hillman who studied the inner structures of our collective human consciousness — the powerful subterranean forces that sculpt our lives. Doing so connects you with a psychological understanding that transcends the personality and connects you with the daemon — the guiding force of your soul.
Second, it means opening to the transcendent dimensions of your awareness — the Mystery, the pure still Witness consciousness beneath all forms, giving you the view beyond your personality, a glimpse into the heart and mind of God.
Third, it requires honing your rational capacities, the penetrating intelligence that guides wise choices and effective action in the world. As you cultivate this discerning intelligence you become more masterful in your ability to navigate and structure your reality.
These three streams of practice each open you in different ways to the full spectrum of your being — representing all levels and all lines of development — in a way that allows the totality of your Integral Soul to emerge.
And ultimately, they all unify in the alchemical vessel of the heart, with love unifying the streams into a coherent flow of consciousness.
Historically, most spiritual lineages have tended to emphasize just one or perhaps two of these streams, leaving us underdeveloped in the others and inadvertently compromising our full potential.
It’s time for a more integrated, holistic and balanced approach, which is exactly what you’ll receive in The Integral Soul Journey, a groundbreaking program which builds on decades of practice, theory and exploration at the leading edge of our evolution.
Transform with an Experienced Guide
Integral visionary Terry Patten is uniquely qualified to guide you in The Integral Soul Journey, offering you both a comprehensive map and a set of practices that marry body, mind and soul with deep wisdom.
Terry will illumine a spiritual path for you that is both grounded and ecstatic, discerning and generous, powerful and humble. During the 8 months of The Integral Soul Journey, you’ll be blessed with the fruits of his four decades of advanced mystical, intellectual and embodied investigation into the higher reaches of human potential.
Terry worked closely with HeartMath Institute, leading the team that developed their first heart-rate variability device. He also partnered with philosopher Ken Wilber to translate integral theory (used at the highest levels of business and government) into a truly Integral Life Practice, and co-wrote the breakthrough book, Integral Life Practice: A 21st-Century Blueprint for Physical Health, Emotional Balance, Mental Clarity, and Spiritual Awakening.
Even more importantly, Terry embodies 40 years of wisdom as a serious student and teacher of authentic spirituality. His unique synthesis transcends the usual “head versus heart” polarization to create an integrated, holistic path of synergy. Terry will lead you toward a kind of holographic integrity, a coming together of your whole being as the lived embodiment of your Integral Soul.
What You’ll Experience on the Journey
In the course of The Integral Soul Journey you’ll establish a regular integral practice and forge a sacred relationship to your soul. You’ll also awaken your heart’s deeper intelligence, which will enable you to discern the wisdom-guided voice of the soul.
Through a grounded devotional practice, you’ll open into tender contact with the living presence of graceful help in subtle realms. By doing so, you’ll learn how to become an offering to the Source of Grace, such that you can enter into relationship with the unseen forces that are creating this world and subtly influencing your experience.
You’ll strengthen your relationship with the archetypes that can empower, infuse and deepen your soul life as you recognize that even your unconscious moments are part of a magical psychophysical divine drama.
By consciously engaging the archetypal dimensions of your life, you’ll also see the broad arc of your own hero’s journey and the ways in which you are enacting classic, archetypal stories.
You’ll also venture into connecting with your daemon — a Greek term for the soul force that has been guiding you since you first drew breath. The ancient Greeks say that after your last earthly life, after you drink from the waters of forgetfulness, on the basis of your character, the Fates assign your daemon, the guiding spirit of your soul in this life. Then the Fates determine the moment and circumstances of your birth. Your daemon is your constant soul companion which, if you learn to listen to it, can guide you to your true destiny and full soul expression.
You’ll also learn to more deeply honor and develop rational approaches to Soul Work, which address your inner atheist and skeptic and helps you view the path with discerning eyes. Our whole being, including the doubting mind, thirsts for a rational basis for working with the “magical” dimensions of the path.
You’ll cultivate higher levels of awakening through integral spiritual practices, and deeper levels of embodiment through alchemical and shamanic processes as well.
You’ll gain an experiential understanding of how to benefit from the profoundly intelligent complementarity of these very different kinds of mystical practice, which are usually pursued independently or mixed without discernment.
By engaging these streams of deep practice in an integrated way, The Integral Soul Journey will enable you to experience a more full-spectrum spiritual awakening.
As you open to a relationship with your own soul nature, you’ll begin to see the soul potentials in others. This allows you to behold their beauty, mirror their brilliance and honor their unique embodiment of divinity. And you’ll naturally respond to their humanity with compassion — creating a whole new level of relational potential.
But the only way to do this is by first opening up to the higher octaves of your spirit and the deeper dimensions of your soul — and not just once but again and again and again. It takes practice. Even when you slip into a contracted, anxious, resentful state (as we all sometimes do), practice is possible and it starts, again and again, with self-compassion. There is always a way to keep coming back and nurture your ability to more fully manifest the unique gifts that the Divine wishes to incarnate through you.
By embarking on an authentic Integral Soul path, you’ll discover a new form of intelligence in your life — one that gives you access to more clarity and more empathy at the same time. You begin to feel Truth in a whole-bodied, visceral way and learn to navigate complex situations with more clarity and greater sensitivity.
You begin to feel an ecstatic current of divine presence pouring through your body and mind in a way that makes you magnetic to what you most want to create in your life and what “It” wants to create with you.
During this comprehensive 8-month journey, Terry will share with you fascinating insights and practices on subjects such as:
- How to develop an ongoing dialogue through which your soul’s purpose is revealed to you, then refined, clarified and allowed to mature
- The simple keys to not only doing spiritual practices but to living your whole life as a practice
- How your soul’s daemon is the archetypal “strange attractor” of your deeper character
- The emerging mechanics and meanings of the integrated soul-and-spirit practice journey
- How to create effective Integral ritual and ceremony
- The “siddhis” (or spiritual powers) that can emerge from profound sustained integral practice
- A vision for understanding the holographic nature of conscious participation in our full-spectrum psychophysical reality
- The easiest and most basic morning ritual incorporating movement and stillness — that will immediately change the dynamics of your everyday life
- The virtuous tantric cycle: how waking up liberates awareness for plunging deep, which in turn liberates energy for waking up
In the course of The Integral Soul Journey, you will ultimately allow your whole life to radically transform, based on your ongoing, profound, moment-to-moment sacred practice, your heart-based existential deepening and your intimate work in powerful small groups.
What You’ll Discover in this 8-Month Advanced Program
There will be 16 class sessions over the course of 8 months.
Class sessions are twice a month on Wednesdays at 12:00pm Pacific.
This course will enable participants to engage the transformative practices of integral spiritual awakening, while also diving deep into a sacred relationship with their soul nature or daemon.
During the 8 months, Terry will take you step-by-step through the advanced practices which will help you gain an experiential understanding of how to benefit from the profound complementarity of these very different kinds of mystical practice, which are ordinarily pursued independently, as if in tension with each other.
Each LIVE training session will build harmoniously upon the next, so that you’ll develop a complete, holistic understanding of the practices, tools and principles you’ll need to establish a regular integral practice, forge a sacred relationship to your soul, and build your relationship to the soul dimensions of your destiny.
Each core module will last 1-2 months, with about 2 classes per month led by Terry (90-minutes each). Unlike other courses we have offered, this advanced program with Terry will not follow a strict program, but will unfold organically — meaning that Terry will move more and more deeply into the curriculum described in the 4 modules below, but not sequentially. Instead, each session will cut deeper, spiraling down, moving spontaneously in an authentic unfolding investigation of emergent aliveness into an ever-deepening engagement with this multidimensional integral journey of the soul.
This advanced training is a rare opportunity to practice at a much deeper level with an evolutionary teacher who is gifted at working with the group field and responding to the needs that arise in the moment based on his intuition, which creates an atmosphere of discovery, adventure and enhanced transformation.
Our whole 8-month journey will enable us to deepen into a soul level brother-sisterhood, making it possible for us to meet one another and to be met at the depths of our process of becoming the ones we have been waiting for.
If you are truly ready to dive deeply into unifying your archetypal, transcendent and rational dimensions as a mystical path, this 8-month advanced program with Terry Patten is the perfect training for you.
Module 1) Committing Body, Mind, Heart & Soul to Your Evolutionary Journey
4 sessions (May 11 & 25, June 8 & 22)
Our practice becomes truly integral when we enact it every day, not as a dutiful burden, but as a natural expression of love and attraction. An evolutionary practice is about coming alive, growing, awakening, not about re-enacting rote habits that look outwardly like “spiritual practice.” So we will go to the roots. We’ll establish an authentic basis for making agreements to break our unhealthy habits and to build enlivening ones that we can practice every day. That basis is a felt loving relationship with the mysterious source of grace. So we will come together with each other to strengthen and refresh our ability to contact the Mystery, the source of our inspiration for practice.
Because practice is paradoxical, we will clarify a whole series of important integral distinctions that will help keep our practice from the common traps that result in subtle stuckness, numbness or abstraction. These key distinctions are what enables integral practitioners to be relaxed, loose and spontaneous, and also grounded and focused, even while our hearts are continually re-ignited by love and inspiration. Most importantly, we will make sure we understand the framework of integral insights that ground our evolutionary practice, and we will distinguish the two primary dimensions of that practice, liberating our energy and attention not just for our awakening into Spirit but also for our deep journey into relationship with our Soul.
During these 4 sessions, you’ll:
- Awaken into a life of ongoing loving contact with the Mystery of Existence
- Learn the easiest and most basic form of a daily practice that will immediately change the dynamics of your everyday life — a simple morning practice ritual incorporating movement and stillness
- Discover the simple keys that enable you to not only do spiritual practices but to live your whole life as practice
- Contact a strong, clear source of inner toughness and discipline that frees you from the endless push-pull between inner parental voices and rebellious impulses
- Discover the virtuous tantric cycle: how waking up liberates awareness for plunging deep, which in turn liberates energy for waking up
- Understand the clear philosophical foundations that make sense of truly Integral Soul Work
Module 2) Facing Your Dragons & Surrendering to the Sacred
3 sessions (July 6 & 20, August 3)
Our love relationship with the Mystery has a universal quality, but it also has a very personal side. We are each living an incomplete story we can become willing to face fully, and then to bring to a wholesome resolution and a new beginning. We must consent to become the hero of our own lives, but, paradoxically, this is not something we can do via effort. Every hero’s journey involves a call (a contact with our true identity, our soul nature) and then a series of encounters with allies and challenges. It also requires a journey to the underworld for a battle with our nemesis. We can’t do that superficially; it requires letting go of who we have come to know ourselves to be, and facing the fearsome monsters that are most intimidating.
What has marginalized our soul is not just the system and consumer culture, or even politics and media — even our intellectual and spiritual identities are at play. So we will set the stage for a profound letting go, and an existential confrontation that opens us to the presence of the part of us that has been waiting to be lived. We will open into relationship with the deepest dimensions of ourselves, and the soul trauma that makes it so hard for us to trust the process of our own lives. Out of that, we will find our way to the existential depth from which it becomes authentic to invite our soul to claim all of us. We will create the rituals through which we can invite a new and truly sacred phase of our lives to begin.
During these 3 sessions, you’ll:
- Discover how transcendental spirituality is no substitute for your relationship to your soul
- Open your heart to contact with the deepest source of your unique character and purpose
- Learn to listen and to ask: cultivating a profound ongoing silent prayerful feeling-dialogue with your soul
- Discover the transformational power of a deep lifelong sacred relationship with your soul
Module 3) Honoring Your Soul’s Daemon & Living Its Wisdom
5 Sessions (August 17 & 31, September 14 & 28,
A sacred relationship with your soul cannot be developed via a method or technique. It is an elusive living relationship, and it has existed all your life. It takes a momentous leap for the soul to replace the conventional ego as the center of your experience. Thus, we will come together in a way that will support each of us in finding our own unique way to initiate and cultivate this sacred relationship, to allow it to grow and blossom at deeper levels, and to become the organizing, harmonizing principle of our whole lives.
Each soul has its own unique shape and mood and character and requirements, and it dwells, like a wild animal, at the margins of the civilized world that our conventional minds have tamed and think we know. And each moment in the journey of the soul is unique. So we will join together to wade, step by step, into the deep waters where our soul can progressively reveal itself and guide us. We will explore the sacred art of dwelling in the presence of our soul, of waiting and listening with true openness and humility, so each of us can discern the strangely familiar true voice of our soul.
During these 5 sessions, you’ll:
- Learn to discern the voice of your soul or daemon amidst the cacophony of “pretender voices”
- Develop the existential seriousness necessary to wait in silence as long as it takes to discern your soul’s authentic voice and character
- Learn to engage the art of living a life that cultivates a real relationship with your unique soul, while growing in health in an integral fashion
- Establish a profound, growing, intimate love-relationship with the deepest dimensions of your being
- Learn how to live from your soul, and to nurture, sustain and deepen that soul life over weeks, months and years
- Connect to the deepest source of creative power that lies at the very core of your soul
Module 4) Expressing Your Soul’s Purpose as a True Evolutionary
4 Sessions (October 26, November 9 & 30,
Our souls have deep reasons for having drawn us right here, right now; purposes that are only revealed to us on “soul time.” The drama of our life reveals its hidden logic only to the patient, watchful heart. And yet it is not just a matter of discovery. We’re co-participants in the revelation of the soul; our choices matter, at the deepest level. Your soul is the deepest part of your unique character, and yet your character is always evolving, based on your choices. So we have good reasons to pay close attention to the unfolding plot of our soul life — the story is not already written. A sacred drama is unfolding.
We are in many ways the luckiest, most privileged people to have ever lived, and yet we face some of the most bewildering and morally important challenges. Why were you called into your unique place in this gorgeous turbulent world at this wonderful and terrible time in human history and evolution? What are the special contributions you were called here to make?
During these 4 sessions, you’ll:
- Develop an ongoing dialogue through which your soul’s purpose is revealed to you, then refined, clarified and allowed to mature
- Evolve in your loving relationship and transparency to all that is greater than yourself
- Learn how to live your soul’s purpose in mutuality — in deep connection with other souls
- Become a participant in a larger, deep, invisible community of souls and become able to participate intimately with them when opportunities arise
- Conspire with the larger forces that are currently engineering our evolutionary synchronicity, allowing them to animate your unique role in the drama of our time

Integrating Voices that Get in the Way
Audio Dialogue with Tim Kelley
Most of us are accustomed to (and unconscious of) the ongoing combat between our internal sub-personalities. These different parts of the psyche mean well. But they often create fear, resistance and confusion, making it much harder for you to hear the voice of your soul, live your purpose and have the impact you’re here to have. When we apply integral principles to these internal parts, we can relax these obstructions, resulting in a completely different kind of psyche, one far better suited to being an agent of change. Join purpose expert Tim Kelley as he explains powerful and little-known methods for creating a powerful and integrated mind.
Tim Kelley is a global change agent and internationally renowned expert on higher purpose. He works with top leaders in many fields and countries to transform human institutions and evolve society to its new form. Tim’s methodology, True Purpose, has been featured internationally in magazines, newspapers and on television. Tim has trained over 1000 consultants, therapists and coaches in his methods. He has worked with hundreds of CEOs, including top leaders and executive teams from such companies as Nabisco, ING, Oracle, Lexmark and AOL. He formerly worked as a leader at Oracle, two levels below the CEO. He is the author of True Purpose, and the best-selling coauthor of three other books. Tim has commanded military organizations, including an amphibious assault craft unit, and is a retired Naval Reserve officer. He holds a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from MIT.
Opening, Softening & Allowing
Audio Dialogue with Miranda Macpherson
Human beings almost universally, subtly and automatically, tend to reject the “bad” parts of experience and ourselves, trying to move toward the “good.” But this divides our consciousness, and we project that division upon everything. Reaching for the light, we end up living in resistance to the dark. The simplest and most essential way to outgrow this universal tendency is to recognize all experience as an expression of the Mystery. We can keep relaxing our tendency to contract and resist, and instead we can open, soften and allow what is. Join spiritual teacher Miranda MacPherson as she shares with Terry Patten this radiant, sublimely simple, essential moment-to-moment practice.
Miranda Macpherson is a contemporary spiritual teacher, counselor and author of the spiritual guidebook Boundless Love. Miranda has been teaching internationally since 1995 and is known for her depth of presence, clarity, and refined capacity to guide people into direct experience of the sacred. Miranda is founder of the ground-breaking OneSpirit Interfaith Foundation in London, and today, leads the Awakening Love and Wisdom sangha in Marin and Sonoma counties. She teaches retreats in the United States and in Europe, and is working on a new book, Tasting Grace. She lives in the San Francisco/Bay Area, and is married to Bob Duchmann, a teacher of the Diamond Approach (A.H. Almass’ Ridwhan School).
Integrating Soul & Spirit
Audio Dialogue with Ken Wilber
The world-famous Integral philosopher in conversation with Terry Patten about the philosophical basis for Integral spiritual practice and the relationship of Integral Soul Work and Integral Non-Duality. They will examine how practitioners can deepen their practice by engaging with the subtle animating information and energy dynamics that play such an important role in the unfolding of our lives.
Ken Wilber is the world’s leading “Integral” philosopher, the author of over 25 books, including Integral Spirituality, A Brief History of Everything, Sex, Ecology & Spirituality, No Boundary, andGrace and Grit. His books have been translated into over 30 languages. He’s also the founder of Integral Institute, The Journal of Integral Theory and Practice, Integral Life, and Integral Spiritual Center. Revered internationally as “the Einstein of consciousness”, he’s a dedicated spiritual practitioner, who’s actually put in thousands of hours on his meditation cushion, so his synthesis of knowledge is always lit with the inner light of gnosis, uniting the eye of flesh, the eye of mind, and the eye of spirit. An international integral community and movement, inspired by his work, now engages the creativity and scholarship of hundreds of people around the world.

– Susan, Brighton, England
The combination of integrated experiences in my life this year has so completely transformed me! As my sphere of awareness continues to expand, I am noticing the impact on my life, the torsions of love spinning off my rudder in my wake as I sail into the mystery; how these torsions touch others, how these torsions are part of a larger sea of awareness and touches the Earth’s heart field. Yes! I so highly recommend this course to everyone, as it opens us up and clears the way and connects us and aligns us with the place where our individual heart kisses the heart of the cosmos! Thank You. In Love and Gratitude.

This course with Terry provided a deep shift in my being. The lectures and exercises seem simplistic but it is very profound when you allow it into your space. During this course it occurred to me that in my past experiences I was "trying too hard" to connect to Source. This course very gently makes you realize that trying hard is not necessary. You just have to open and allow. I was truly amazed at the profound experience.

Other options include calling cards and discount long-distance carriers; and we also have a webcast which is free to use from anywhere in the world.
I have never participated before in an online course. The packaging, presentation, inclusion and Facebook postings created a wonderful, safe cocoon to participate. I haven’t seen a course so well put together ever — not in all the years of taking college classes — and I had my doubts about doing an online course. The wealth of organization and ease of learning materials and support made this fun as well.
