Practical Integral On-line courses:
The core of my teaching is transformation . . .
Barbara is a popular teacher and retreat leader. In addition to live and virtual classes, she designs retreats and seminars specific to organizations and professional groups. Barbara’s thrust in teaching, like coaching, is development. She combines her years of experience in psychology and spirituality to offer experiences that give people traction to change themselves and the lives of others. Here is a sampling of her classes.
Practical Integral: This series offers the practical application of Integral Theory for spiritual directors, coaches, clergy, other helping professionals and anyone interested in learning more about the rich resource that is the Integral Framework. Available on line (see above) as well as in classes in the Bay Area.
Unique Self Development: This class maps the journey of the individual from our separate self beginnings to the realization of our True or Divine nature and the embodiment our Unique Selves in service to the world.
The Three Faces of Spirit: This seminar is an experiential journey through the three lenses through which we experience the Divine: the first, second and third person perspective. Through art, verse, guided meditation and discussion participants explore each perspective in order to become more aware of their particular preference. Each has great value and taken together can offer a more complete experience of Spirit and a greater appreciation for other’s ways of relating.
