Integral Life Exclusive Course

Course Overview

“Can you start to see that your awakening allows for a more full embrace of the arising of reality? To cultivate a deeper intimacy with what the comprehensive Integral Map points to and a stronger capacity to make sense of everything and everyone happening all at once? You’re not awakening beyond life, you’re awakening into life.”Ryan Oelke

Join Ryan as we weave the timeless wisdom of Buddhism with the profound insights of Integral Theory, your gateway to a richer, more awakened, and more meaningful life. Integral Dharma is more than a web course — it is a transformative experience that empowers you to live with greater intention, greater awareness, and greater compassion. Ryan will guide you through a series of experiential lessons where each insight is deeply integrated into your daily life, taking you beyond conceptual “knowing” into a profound shift in how you perceive yourself and your world. As Ryan says, “In the end, you are Integral Dharma, living Integral Dharma.”

What does it mean to embody integral consciousness?

Integral is much more than an abstract set of ideas. It is a vast territory that lives within you, waiting to be discovered. Integral Dharma is designed to help bring integral ideas to life, so you can fully experience, explore, and inhabit your unique integral territory from the inside out.

How can I cultivate a deeper connection to life?

Discover how Integral Dharma can enhance your understanding and connection to the world around you, so that every encounter and every relationship becomes a new source of compassion and loving kindness.

How can I make every moment an opportunity for awakening and transformation?

We often think of spirituality as somehow separate from the rest of our activities, a space or refuge we go to in order to connect with our deepest wisdom and awakening. But Integral Dharma does something a bit different — it helps dissolve the boundary between “practicing” and ordinary living, so that every moment and every action becomes an opportunity to cultivate and express your awakened sense of purpose, presence, and awareness.

How can I expand my awakening beyond the self?

In Integral Dharma, awakening isn’t confined to personal transformation alone, it extends into the very fabric of our social and collective existence. But how do we bridge this gap between individual enlightenment and social connection? Integral Dharma includes innovative new practices that not only deepen personal awareness, but also connects our insights with the wider community, fostering a shared consciousness that transcends individual perspective.

How can I find a spiritual practice that works for me?

Whether you are a long time practitioner or someone who is just beginning to scratch the surface of meditation, Integral Dharma will offer you a suite of innovative practices that meet you exactly where you are – all customizable and adaptable to your needs, your personal circumstances, and your unique way of being.

“My hope is that this course helps you make the Integral map easier to digest so you can put it to practice and to integrate the fruition of your practice more easily, intentionally, and spontaneously into all aspects of your life. In the end, you are Integral Dharma, living Integral Dharma.”Ryan Oelke

“The new Buddha is not going to be the Sangha, but the unification of the Buddha, Sangha, and Dharma in a single ongoing nondual Awareness and Awakening.”Ken Wilber, Religion of Tomorrow
