“Integral Coaching Canada provides what we believe is the most complete and comprehensive coaching program available. ”
How We Train Embodied Coaches
Being a great coaching school requires more than just a powerful method. The transmission of our Method to students also requires supporting them with structure, form, and a step-by-step process, so that they can embody our coaching method and put it to skillful use in their own lives and with their clients.

How Conscious Completion Lightens Your Load
ICC Co-Founder, Laura Divine, shares a simple practice of conscious completion that she learned during her time in a Zen monastery to help us gain some freedom and space from feelings of overwhelm. By shifting our attention to more consciously registering when we have completed something big, small or in-between, we can begin to feel less overwhelmed and burdened during busy periods of our lives.
Let Go and Let In – The Path to Service
ICC Co-Founder, Laura Divine, describes how being of service to someone is much more than simply bringing forward your knowledge, experience, and wisdom. It calls for letting go and letting in the person in front of you to discover what this unique person truly needs from you in this unique moment. Learn about how your deepest desire to contribute to another person’s well-being can truly be fulfilled in a way that works for both of you.
The Power & Contribution of “Looking As”
ICC Co-Founder, Laura Divine, describes “Looking As” as an Integral Coach’s™ capacity to see through the eyes of another person, and see how they see the world. “Looking As” is a fundamental skill in the ICC Coaching Methodology that is often overlooked in other coaching approaches and in disciplines outside of coaching.
Laura speaks to what capabilities are required to actually ‘Look As’ another human being, and how the ICC Certification Program builds and develops this skill in our coaches throughout their training so that it becomes embodied in them. Laura also describes the powerful impact “Looking As” can have in a coach/client relationship, as well as in all relationships.
At the end of the video, Laura introduces a unique offering from ICC for anyone looking to concretely develop their capacity to “Look As”. Our Native Perspectives video series is a great first step towards getting outside of our own view and better understanding and appreciating where others are coming from. This aspect of “Looking As” can enhance how you are in conversation and communication with others in your workplace and in every facet of your life.

Dynamics of Change: Interview with Joanne Hunt and Laura Divine
In this interview conducted by Coaches Rising (Europe), Joanne Hunt and Laura Divine discuss the transformative power of working with a client’s Current Way of Being and the power of developing a New Way of Being. This includes the coach's ability to not just Look At a client objectively to help them build new competencies, but the intimate ability to Look As a client – seeing the world through the client's eyes, through the client's reality, through the client's ways of moving in the world. Most coaching schools teach you to Look At a client, but Looking As another human being brings coaching skills to a whole new level. A mastery level. Joanne and Laura also speak about how to avoid developmental fatigue and still help clients grow, and why resistance to change is actually a good sign and how to work with it skillfully. (1:21:04)

In the second installment of this dialogue, Joanne Hunt and Laura Divine further explore the concept of Orienting Quadrants, noting the four very different approaches to reality that influence our relationship with the world, with each other, and with ourselves. (19:39)
Interview with Ken Wilber Part 3: Multiple Intelligences of Clients
In the third installation of the Integral Coaching® dialogue, Joanne Hunt, Laura Divine, and Ken Wilber discuss the many ways human beings grow and develop in their lives. There are many different aspects of human experience (often referred to as "multiple intelligences" or "lines of development") that all grow at different velocities through different levels of proficiency and sophistication.
Without taking these different aspects of psychological maturity into account, many schools of coaching end up working with two-dimensional caricatures of their clients—unable to fully appreciate the knotted elegance of human potential, and therefore unable to locate the very real leverage points of growth and development. (39:36)
Interview with Ken Wilber Part 4: The Many Flavors of Presence
In the final installment of Joanne, Laura, and Ken's dialogue regarding ICC's unique Integral Coaching® work, they discuss the last two ‘lenses’ comprising the AQAL Constellation™ in the Integral Coaching® method: States of Consciousness and Type Structures (Enneagram and Gender). Their discussion includes not only understanding how these two lenses are used in supporting client development, but also how they help define practices engaged in by ICC's coaches themselves as a way to cultivate and deepen their own process of waking up and growing up.
