Integral Paradigm


Living the Integral Paradigm

Course Description
Changing the Paradigm: An Integral Approach to Living and Working with Linda Bark and Steve Mann


  • Do you think that we are in a culture change?
  • Do you see people moving from a mental, logical, individual way of being to a way of living in which people are more collaborative, come from a systems viewpoint, and feel more connection?
  • Are you curious about how to function in the new paradigm when the old paradigm still exists in many areas?
  • Do you want to learn integral tools that help you thrive in the new paradigm?
  • Are you interested in learning to recognize changes that demonstrate a shift toward the integral paradigm?

Then join us in a lively, provocative interaction by Steve Mann, a systems thinker coach who comes from the IT world and humanistic psychology, and Linda Bark, the founder of the Wisdom of the Whole Coaching Academy. There will be time for questions and comments from participants in each session. You will leave the sessions feeling connected to others who want to positively impact the world, more prepared to live in a changing and sometimes disruptive world, and better able to see positive changes that are happening in our culture. Let’s change the paradigm together!

linda-photo-bioLinda Bark has always been interested in how and why people change. In her early nursing career, she focused on psychology for answers to these questions and in the 70′s completed a master’s degree in life transition counseling for an added perspective. During her PhD in philosophy and religion, she realized that her interest in change was really at the heart of her life purpose–helping to bring in the new integral paradigm. How could she help with this shift in consciousness? Her love for integral coaching was her answer and she focused on her teaching organization. Her model of coaching includes past skills and perspectives from earlier paradigms and invites people to transform into a new integral way of being.

Steve MannSteve Mann, from early in life, has had a dual interest in all the dimensions of human nature and in leading-edge technology. Steve studied psychology in college, focusing on self-actualization and development of higher states of consciousness, and after graduating, he pursued a career in computer engineering. He is particularly interested in tracking and facilitating the shift from our current paradigm, which is changing the earth’s ecosystem in a way that endangers all life, to a new paradigm in which we support and enhance the rich diversity and depth of possibilities of our own species in harmony with all others. Steve has recently added coaching using the Wisdom of the Whole model to his tools to work in that direction.
