The Future Human
In today's high-powered high-tech world, human activity has global impact. The stakes are high. We have urgent need for a more ethical and sustainable humanity that acts with psychological maturity.
For the future human being, it’s not enough to develop emotional depth and intelligence, fluency in culture and values, or other inner capacities independent of a profession, project or context for action. Nor is it sufficient to acquire the latest professional skills without regard for the quality of self-awareness behind those skills.
Unfortunately, it’s rare that you can learn to be a more mature and integrated human being at the same time as you’re learning to be more effective and innovative in your field. The world needs embodied practitioners of the highest caliber.
Educating the New, Integral Professional
Kurt Lewin famously declared, “There is nothing so practical as a good theory.” Integral Theory is being applied in upwards of 50 disciplines, so you can be sure it’s a good theory. But “good” does not begin to describe the potential significance of integralism.
Throughout human civilization, you can count on one hand the number of times a new theoretical point of view has gained so much traction in so many fields of human activity. In integral we have a new model that is taking hold because it is responsive to the professional demands and challenges of our 21st-century global society.
Integral is the leading edge—of leading change. And MetaIntegral Academy is where you go to receive a world-class education in embodying integral principles and putting them into action. We’re a training ground for the new, integral professional.
A Black Belt in Integral
It’s one thing to tout integral as the world’s most comprehensive map of human potential, and quite another to design an advanced training curriculum that exercises the full range of your potential.
But that’s just what we’ve done at the Academy, in partnership with Integral Coaching Canada, the only ICF-accredited coach training school at Mastery Level. We offer you the most powerful integral coaching, leadership, and application methods available on the planet.
When you train with us you train within a space of deep care, loving presence and rigorous standards! We promise you 100% support and 100% challenge—that's our formula for delivering you your own highest potential and placing it in service of a better world.

Integral Coaching Certification Program (ICCP)
The Academy's Integral Coaching® Certification Program is offered through our partner Integral Coaching Canada. This program is based on Integral Theory, Martial Arts Principles, and Rigorous Adult Development Practice, and is fully accredited by the International Coach Federation (ICF). It is the only ICF accredited Integral Coaching® training program that meets and surpasses Masters Level ICF training requirements as an Accredited Coach Training Program (ACTP). Integral Coaching Canada's two founders are each certified by the ICF as Master Certified Coaches. AQAL accolades. ICF accreditation. Embodiment training architecture. A powerful combination. Graduates of this program become fully certified and licensed to practice this powerful Integral Coaching® method. The ICCP has been rated as best-in-class globally by the Integral Institute.
Embodied Practitioner Certification
Embodied Practitioner Certification is a multi-year project based leadership training that supports you in applying Integral Theory to yourself and your project simultaneously. There are three levels, which a participant completes in sequence and can stop at any point. The three levels are: Level 1: Presence and Skillful Action, Level 2: Essence and Integral Impact, Level 3: Boundlessness & Enactment. Each level deeply integrates embodiment and application. Participants come together three times a year for five day sessions and in between sessions they receive phone coaching and mentoring for themselves and their projects. At the end of each level participants present their projects and learnings to the entire cohort. We use a developmentally informed curriculum that meets you were you are at and helps you deepen and widen in your own capacity for embodied perspective taking.
The Academy is also committed to developing mobile apps that can dynamically support embodied integral practitioners. We are currently seeking partners who have experience developing mobile apps and are familiar with Integral Theory. In 2013, we would like to bring to market our first integral practitioner apps for coaches, consultants, and change agents. We have some killer ideas in mind and... we're interested in hearing yours!
Meta-Practices for Effective Transformation
At MetaIntegral Academy our mission is to serve the planet by training future generations of integral leaders and change agents. We accomplish this by engaging in a number of meta-practices. Some of the most important of these are:
1. Developmental Curriculum that Transforms All of You
All of our trainings and certifications are designed with the most comprehensive map of human potential in mind. An integral map informs everything we design, from our high-level training architecture to specific learning modules on down to customized practices for individual transformation. When you train with us we work with the unique you—and we work to transform all of you.
An integral map is a map of your own potential, so everything we do is meant for you to become self-aware of your own fullness, and your exquisite freedom, as a human being. Our curriculum puts the map in your hands. We put the rich clay of your humanity on the table, so that together we can play and shape and develop and enliven your being. Body. Mind. Heart. Spirit.
2. Knowledge for Action (Project-based Leadership Training)
How you can you be more effective, innovative, and impactful? This outcome is our interest. Self-transformation is in service of social change. Your embodiment supports application. Being is being-in-the-world. Leading, like any truly human activity, emerges from your being.
So we give you the opportunity to pick and choose the integral models and frameworks you want to work with. You apply them to a project or cause as part of your training. We support your learning and understanding of integral in the context of action. Real world intervention. Real-time feedback. You reap the rewards of project-based leadership training.
3. 100% Support 100% Challenge
It’s an exhilarating feeling, when you discover something new about yourself—about who you are and what you are capable of accomplishing. This process of self-discovery and world-transforming action is a lifelong journey comprised of countless short steps.
We count ourselves among the best educators and facilitators of transformative learning because we honor the whole journey and we see it in each and every step. Our own lives are a training ground in the art and science of transformation. And so, the practice we offer to you is a lived commitment that we practice ourselves: To support you in knowing and acting on “what’s now”; to challenge you in knowing and growing into “what’s next”.
