Our mission is to reinvent learning & development for practitioners and clients to better meet the challenges of our time. We are pivoting our business around our global learning community because we believe the future requires a deeper commitment to our shared humanity. To make the most of the opportunities for awakening in these times we need to change the game not just move the pieces around. We hope you will come seriously play with us.

Dr. David Drake
Founder and CEO

The Integrative Development Practitioner Gateway Program

Building on the success of our Beyond Coaching Experience and IDP Intensive in 2020, we are proud to announce our flagship program. It brings together David's legacy work and current breakthroughs to offer practitioners a fundamentally new way of working with clients.

The IDP Gateway Program gives you the foundation and philosophy you need to be able to facilitate real change in real time. It brings together personal, spiritual, professional and social development to enable you to work in an integrative manner with your clients.

The experience will profoundly shift how you live, relate and work.
You will be able to compost what you no longer need, curate what is essential for you, and channel what is most needed in the moment.

Once you have completed the Gateway Program, you can take the Certification Program which serves your purpose (Narrative Coaching, Narrative Release or Integrative Development).


Our collaborative learning community is a safe, vibrant space to connect and create.

In a world on fire, we are called to BE and BECOME more fully human so we can make the deep adaptations we need. When so much is up for grabs, we seek deeper connections not just content; we want to make the most of what we already have not just acquire more. Personally and collectively, we are our best curriculum.

This is why we offer only one core program. It incorporates the best of what Dr David Drake has developed over the past 20+ years about how to work with greater ease, presence and impact. It is the gateway to our certifications and the global learning community we are forming as the epicenter of the business. It is designed so that practitioners like you can design your own developmental path and evolve quickly so you are ready for what is needed next.


We release ourselves to be radically present in the moment.

We trust that everything we need is right in front of us.

We stand at thresholds and the unknown with compassion.

We work with what is emerging to liberate its potential.

We know the only way to evolve fast enough is together.

Your journey starts with the BCE

The Narrative Coaching Program

This nine-module program is led by Dr David Drake, the founder of the field.  You will learn the essentials of this powerful practice, shift how you see yourself as a coach, and be able to help your clients bring new stories to life.


The Narrative Release™ Program

This nine-module program addresses the critical issues practitioners and clients face right now. This non-clinical process builds on attachment theory, Shadow and grief work, post-traumatic growth and more to support healing and wholeness.


The Integrative Development Program

This nine-module program shows you how to integrate personal, spiritual, professional and social development in yourself and your clients. It introduces you to a profoundly new way of working made for these times.


Working at the thresholds before us is not for the faint of heart or the ill-prepared. Our three programs — BCE,  IDP and LAB — provide the foundations and frameworks you will need to work with what we call 'structured emergence'. We see it as the ultimate skill in these upside down times with so much at stake. The programs have a strong theoretical base which enables graduates to integrate this work and use it with confidence. Each program opens up a new level of membership in our global collaborative learning community. Using our own principles of Integrative Development, it is an extraordinary opportunity for practitioners to deepen their practice and contribute to the future of this work.

Everything you need is right in front of you.
