Integral Resilience for Busy People

Everyone these days, it seems, is busy. Some even call it a malady, because “busy-ness” can be closely linked with overload, fatigue, burnout, and depression.

This course is designed with busy people in mind. It accepts busy-ness as a way of living, but offers a path to having a better balance.

What if you can continue to be busy – if that is your choice and necessary preference – but there is a way not to sacrifice what is really precious in life – what matters most? We have designed this course to effortlessly dovetail with your busy schedule.

Personalize the Course to your Schedule


You can spread exploring the 13 course Modules over many weeks. Each session takes about an hour to listen to the videos and audios, ponder the material, and explore the questions. The material is very rich, and we encourage you to savor it.


Or you can take the course in short form by skimming through the 10 Essential Moves to capture their essential flavor; then once you have an initial experience of Integral Resilience, you can retake the course, and journey deeper. Much like savoring a rich Bordeaux, a great craft beer, or your favorite herbal tea.


Although the course has a well-developed logical structure, each move builds upon the one before. Learning is a very personal journey. Some people like to begin at the beginning; others to check out the end of a story first; others to dive into the middle.


The good news is the 10 Essential Moves are holographic. This means every move incorporates dimensions of all the others. Hence, you can begin to understand the whole from exploring any of its component parts and in any sequence you like.


Surprisingly, Integral Resilience augments time. Small spaces open and create opportunities; our priorities shift, and we can accomplish far more with less effort.

A Core Life Competency


Integral Resilience offers powerful leverage for busy people in another way: it is a foundational skill that underlies and empowers all other positive behaviors.


There is increasing scientific evidence that life-affirming “positive” behaviors have beneficial effects on a large spectrum of human challenges, including recovering from trauma, managing chronic illnesses, building adaptive vitality, and even longevity. Integral resilience is a foundation for addressing all of these life challenges.


We call this the “Resilient Multiplier Effect.” In business terms, making a modest investment of your time in cultivating Integral Resilience can yield benefit streams lasting a lifetime.

of My Personal Resilience Journey


Resilience can be maintained, even enhanced, well into advanced age – a NASA’s core finding.


Fortifies behavioral changes that support best medical protocols for a wide spectrum of health challenges, including health literacy, obesity, diabetes, neurodegenerative diseases, hypertension, and pain management.


Provides an effective and measurable antidote to burnout, loneliness, and depression.


Enables you to multiply knowledge and resilience through Exploration, Discovery, Creativity, and Innovation


Create your own luck by paying forward the benefits you receive to others in your community.


Measurably increase your Integral Resilience Quotient (IRQ) and to provide practical ways to apply this core life competency beneficially and practically in your personal and professional life.

Transcends mindfulness training by balancing inner cultivation with kindness and compassion for others (Paying Forward)

Offers a novel way to cultivate wisdom, balance, and love, which societies throughout history have held most precious but have lacked a practical means to account for and have therefore treated as non-economic in nature.

Introduces a New Form of “Intertidal” Thinking as a basis for creativity, discovery, invention, and innovation.

Creates a Collaborative Codex (Integral Resilience Wikipedia) of Integral Resilience applications in many fields and disciplines.
