The Moment Institute


We are dedicated to advancing the human capacity to learn from each moment.


Learning and development have been transformed to support a more humane and sustainable future.

Dr. David Drake

I have dedicated my life and career to standing in third spaces — as someone who is (1) a grounded practitioner and a visionary thinker, (2) dedicated to the scholarly and the shamanic, and (3) the founder of three bodies of work and someone who savors the moment.

I have studied, written, and taught all over the world. I have a passion for distilling ideas and insights down to their essence and then creating experiences that use them to support transformative growth. I work at thresholds for individuals, groups, and organizations in support of their aspirations.

Faculty and Hosts

We have a stellar faculty for our Integrative Development and Narrative Coaching learning communities. Our programs feature an extensive library of recordings by David to support the development of our students and graduates as well as the advancement of this work.

We have a wonderful group of hosts who have supported our events. They will be joined by others starting in May 2022 as we launch The Threshold Lab, a ground-breaking platform that uses our own work to re-imagine professional development and innovation.


Our work revolves around the philosophy and practices of Dr David Drake, and our global learning communities are at the heart of our identity and success as an Institute. Our practitioners are drawn to this diverse and unique community because of the quality of the people we attract and the transformative experiences we create together. It is a space for growth that feels for many of our folks like coming home.

A ‘square peg’ like me has found a home in which I learned to embrace my identity, and show up as the human being that I am. I travel lighter and bring deeper value to clients. This would not have been possible without the support of fellow travelers. - Froukelien I.
