Update: January 2012 - See how this book has catalyzed our non-profit
foundation in Central America:

Read Ken Wilber's endorsement of the work of The Integral Heart Foundation in Guatemala here.

The Uncommon Path reveals what is commonly referred 
to as conscious self-development can be nothing more 
than a kaleidoscope of metaphysical distractions, 
orchestrated by concealed conditioning to keep 
us well clear of clarity and authenticity.  

--Ted Saad, Director of Integral Boston:  
"I am reading your book now. Outstanding! You really have
integrated the teachings of Ken Wilber and Andrew Cohen 
in such a profound and fresh way."

--Gary Renard, author of The Disappearance of the Universe
"This book gives us a program to achieve genuine happiness,
and does so in an informative and gripping way."

6.36 minutes: The potential of relationships without conflict

Download Mick Quinn in an
interview with Doc Barham and
Michael Richardson on the
potential hidden in our Shadow
This # 1 bestselling book is about realizing a way of life that is far more

durable, fulfilling and self-sustaining than just gaining worldly success.

The Uncommon Path  is about opening your mind and heart to other

possibilities, those that are far greater and far more challenging than

building 'the dream life' - yet are just as attainable and sustainable as

the pictures and words that others have placed in your mind.

--H.B. Augustine, about our work in Guatemala: "What you and Mick 
are doing is a perfect example for what the Integral community itself 
now needs to accept, embrace, and enact: taking these celestial ideas 
and venturing into the flames of samsara, getting one's hands dirty, 
embracing the suffering and actually connecting with people who 
experience it far more than we can even imagine - as opposed to just 
sitting back and theorizing about AQAL."

1.35 minutes: Two ways to joy
THE UNCOMMON PATH combines core aspects of Wilber's Integral Theory,

the simplicity of Genpo Merzel's  Big Mind Process, the gentleness of Eckhart

Tolle's wisdom, the clarity of Andrew Cohen's teachings of Evolutionary

, and evolved exercises based on the lifework of Coaching

founder, Thomas J. Leonard. The goal is to help you identify and transcend

concealed conditioning on the path of awakening authentic joy.

"This book is nourishment for your soul, practical advice for your success."

"The authorís style speaks between the lines--like silence making music.
I highly recommend this excellent book."
--Raquel Torrent, Psychologist and Ex-president of Integral Spain.

"This book gives us a program to achieve genuine happiness, and does so 
in an informative and gripping way."

"Universally powerful, yet intimate message."
--Bob Weinstein, Author and Syndicated Journalist for The Washington Post.

it with a values-based approach to Integral coaching that yields real results.
--Jeff Carreira, Director of Education, EnlightenNext.  
6.24 minutes: Dealing with friends who are different levels of development
THE UNCOMMON PATH is for readers who yearn for purpose and freedom,
who after years of self-help programs, now suspect that the very conditioning they seek to surpass has been leading their quests all 
along. It is also for those who are looking for wholesome and lasting 
changes in the basis, purpose, and expressions of their relationships.
