Unlock a way to work with more ease and flow.

Your clients’ needs are changing faster than our organizations, professions, and practices.
  • What if, rather than running to keep pace (which only leads to more burnout), you slowed down to focus on what is possible in this moment?
  • What if, rather than consuming more information, you composted what you no longer needed, curated only what is essential, and channeled you at your best?
  • What if, rather than separating your personal development and professional development, you could do both at the same time?

The ID Way Experience offers a more spacious and natural approach to learning and development. It’s your opportunity to integrate the best of who you are and what you’ve learned to create a new way forward. You will be developing yourself and your skills, which means you can use what you learn in any aspect of life and work.

It is a call to be more
  • Courageous in helping our clients deal with the real issues they face
  • Aligned with the evidence around what makes a difference for clients
  • Natural in how we do what we do so we can help our clients to do the same

There is something about being able to stand with a client and feel into my own capacity to be trusted, to be leaned on, as I hold space for their process. And I know that when I find that "sweet spot" in me, they can feel it, too. Something moves, and what wants to happen begins to happen.

It is as though nothing exists in the moment but me, and them, and the space - the field - between us. This work expands my own ability to stay present and to work with myself as an instrument - that is all I can trust in those moments and all that the moment needs.

- Carolyn Sargentson

Don't exhaust yourself trying to fit into someone else’s framework

The practitioners who join us in 2024 recognize that they need to do the deeper work on themselves so they can BE with their clients and the issues they face.

Fancy formulas, trendy buzzwords, overflowing toolkits, and ‘best practices’ represent an outdated approach to our work. The path to better client outcomes starts with freeing yourself so you are no longer boxed in by old ways of working. It is a call to enlightened pragmatism, to compassionately and clearly see what is in front of you and respond with what is needed most.

  • While your clients appreciate what you know… most of what they face is in the unknown and the uncertain.
  • While they appreciate what you can do for them… most of what they need is in how to be with each other.
  • While they appreciate what you contribute to their future… most of what they grapple with is in the present.

Each of us is called now to choose a new way forward that is grounded both in greater care for ourselves, the fellow humans with whom we work, and for the planet on which we live. We will show you how, so that you can maturely and masterfully do the same for others.

It is about working instinctively with what’s natural...

The ID Way Experience is a safe, generous space for exploration and experimentation around how to work with the potential in the moment rather than the plans that were made in advance. You will learn how to notice and work with the inner and outer dynamics that are present when you are with clients.

What you learn will enable you to have greater impact — whether you are designing a program, running a workshop, facilitating a conversation, or coaching leaders.

You will learn how to:

  1. Quiet and attune yourself so that you can notice more.
  2. Connect human to human as the basis for a deeper working relationship.
  3. ‘Read’ the moment and the field to discern what clients are ready for and need most.
  4. Invite clients to step into these moments and who they are seeking to become.
  5. Offer the scaffolding they need to make the most of the moment and its potential.

Join the 2024 cohort to be a part of a community of peers who are reinventing how they show up and work with others.

I’ve invested in a lot of different development programs — including a $25k/year mastermind. This one truly went deeper and created fundamental changes that impact every area of my coaching, business, and life.

The ID Way was everything I didn't know I needed. It was less linear than I expected and more transformational in every area of my life than I could have imagined.

The community was incredibly warm and welcoming. I immediately felt witnessed and embraced right where I am. As a result of this program, I am more comfortable not knowing and have slowed down and learned to embrace the moment.

Life Transition Guide

The focus: Your maturation as a practitioner.

That is why we have created this offer as an Experience not a typical Program.

We are not teaching you ID, you will be experiencing ID and activating the latent potential for ID in yourself. This Experience is about getting to know The ID Way, starting with yourself. As a result, you will deepen your trust in yourself and your ability to work with what IS — so that you can guide your clients to do the same.

It all starts with trusting yourself.

The ID Way Experience draws from two strands of The Moment Institute's work — Narrative Release (NR) and Integrative Development (ID). These two bodies of work from Dr David Drake are built around the same frame and contribute to the same purpose: to enable practitioners to liberate the learning and development potential in ANY moment.

NR is the inner journey that enables practitioners to slow down to recognize the moment and its potential, hold that space with clients, and support what emerges in service of their aspirations.

ID is the outer journey that enables practitioners to know what to do in those moments to make the most of what is possible for clients to take their next vital steps.

Together, they will equip you to stand in the unknown and at thresholds with your clients as they re-imagine and re-build your lives, communities, and/or organizations.

When you join The ID Way Experience, you get access to…

Live sessions with David and The Moment Institute faculty

Dr. David Drake — the creator of Integrative Development and founder of The Moment Institute — designed every module, produced dozens of videos and resources to support your learning, hosts the first session of each module and graduation, and engages regularly with participants in the program forum.

He has hand-picked and trained the MI faculty, who will work with you as you move through the program and help you get the most from the program and the experience.

Peer Practice Pods

It’s no secret that intentional practice and generative feedback is the surest path to sharpening your skills and embodying best practices. That’s why we’re excited to incorporate peer practice pods alongside our new AI-informed platform, Ovida. This state-of-the-art space allows you to record your practices, get both human and AI-generated feedback, and compare notes with your colleagues in an intimate small group setting.

A global community to support your ongoing growth

We offer a dedicated online forum where you can connect with other practitioners from around the world, deepen your relationships, find practice partners, compare notes, and get support from kindred spirits.
Personal and professional development journey

You can only serve as a guide to places you’ve been yourself.

The ID Way Experience will take you deeper into your own experience so that you can work deeply with others. Our graduates report they are as grateful for who they have become through this program as for what they learned.

I am ready to enroll!

Is The ID Way Experience right for me?

The ID Way is right for you if you’re…

  • Open to being challenged intellectually
  • Feeling limited by traditional approaches to coaching, training, facilitation, and OD
  • Eager to dig deep into self-reflection
And you…
  • Have 3-4 hours per week to dedicate to the live sessions and your mastermind group
  • Can afford $397 per month toward developing your coaching practice

The ID Way is NOT right for you if you’re…

  • Looking for more formulas, trendy vocabulary, or copy-and-paste solutions
  • Attached to your current methods and not open to exploring alternative approaches
  • Not prepared to do your own inner work
Or you…
  • Don’t have any time in the week to dedicate to your development
  • Aren’t in a place where you can dedicate $397 per month toward developing your coaching practice


How much expertise do I need to join The ID Way Experience?

The ID Way Experience was designed using the Integrative Development process itself. This means that you can use the experience and resources in ways that allow you to be productively challenged and resourced to support your needs and vision.

Each participant creates their own path in the company of others based on what they bring to the program and what they want to do next. Based on our experience, we recommend taking The Narrative Coach program first (though it is not required) and having experience working in multiple modalities.

What if I commit and then find out I’m not a good fit?

We offer a 100% money-back guarantee. If at any point during the first module, up until February 9th, 2024, you decide that The ID Way Experience isn’t right for you, you can get your money back.

We invite you to check in with yourself as you read this. If everything you’ve read so far about The ID Way Experience resonates with you, that’s an excellent sign that this program is for you.

On the other hand, if you’re experiencing objection after objection as you read through the experience description, we encourage you to reach out to us with your concerns.

Do you offer payment plans?

Yes, we do. If you’re unable to pay in full, you’re welcome to pay $397 per month for 9 months.

How is this different from The Narrative Coach Program?

The Narrative Coach Program is based in the same philosophy and uses some of the same models as The ID Way Experience, but goes much deeper into narrative work and is largely focused on teaching practitioners how to coach this way. The ID Way Experience goes much deeper into The Five Maturities and is largely focused on working this way in any moment to liberate the learning and development potential that is present.

As such, it is used both to re-design learning and development experiences and to re-develop practitioners who can work this way. It is therefore suitable for both internal and external practitioners and leaders in this space.

Do you offer certification?

You will gain a lot from your time in the ID Way Experience, and it is designed to deepen both your personal and professional maturity and mastery. You will have the opportunity and support to be able to leave with significant shifts in how you see yourself and how you work with clients.

You will receive Certificate of Completion and 53 credit hours. We are building a new and more robust Advanced Certification Program that we expect to launch in mid-2024. It will be accompanied by a stronger resource for the ID graduate community.

Dare to live more authentically and deeply.

Our sessions and community are a space for you to slow down to notice more, find clarity and ease amid the fog, and open a deeper way to be yourself and work with clients. While practitioners come to increase their capabilities to find and do good work, most of them report when they leave they are equally grateful for who they became in the process.

All of this is preparing you to stand out because you are freed of cookie cutter approaches to learning and development, and you can go places with clients that others can’t. While it may seem daunting at first because it challenges so much of how we were raised starting in school, once you release yourself, it makes so much more possible!
