Terry Patten serves as Co-Director
of the Integral Life Practice Center at Integral University.
For fifteen years (1973-1988) Terry was a student and
editor for Adi Da during which time he co-authored (with
Adi Da and Saniel Bonder) the book Garbage and the
Goddess and served as founding editor of The
Dawn Horse, Vision Mound, and The Laughing Man magazines.
Terry is best known as the founder and guiding spirit
behind the Tools For Exploration catalog, which
first gathered in one place the many emerging brain-mind
machines, subtle energy tools, and other cutting-edge
technologies for expanding awareness. During this time
he co-authored (with Dr. Julian Isaacs) A Double-Blind
Study of the Biocircuit, a Putative Subtle Energy Device,
co-designed various biofeedback tools and psycho-acoustic
recordings, and managed the development of Heartmath's
Freeze-Framer Heart Rate Variability Monitor. Terry
is an entrepreneur, investor and consultant, as well
as a writer, teacher and coach and a grassroots conservationist.
Since selling Tools For Exploration in 1998,
he has co-directed two grassroots environmental organizations,
one of which, Old-Growth Again, demonstrates
a new economic model for sustainable Redwood forestry.
