About us

The Institute of Integral Education I3 offers diverse educationally transformative programs designed to address today’s challenges and tasks. Our vision is based on the belief that all human beings have a spiritual, psychological, physical and social dimension. A well-balanced relationship between those often separated areas is a prerequisite for a meaningful and inspired life.

We teach an integral and interdisciplinary approach to the most important areas of life, emphasizing the importance of mastering and balancing all four types of intelligence – IQ (mental intelligence), EQ (emotional intelligence), SQ (spiritual intelligence) and BQ (body intelligence). We believe that cultivating awareness and presence is fundamentally essential as it leads to true competence and a stronger sense of responsibility. This approach is vitally important, especially in areas such as state administration, education, politics and business. Indeed, the future of Latvian society depends on well-developed leadership skills in these areas.

Main themes for workshops and retreats

  • Development of human consciousness
  • Initiation and methods of transformation
  • Integral theory as set out by Ken Wilber
  • Contemplative meditation, presence and mindfulness practice
  • Integral coaching and integral business
  • Achieving balance between body and spirit, work and personal development
  • Building integral relationships with oneself and others. Shedding light on the deeper meaning of gender identity
  • Shadow work, healing the wounds of the soul, transforming emotions
  • The journey of self-discovery, uncovering and realization of one’s purpose and mission
  • Encountering art, music and literature as sources of creativity
  • Inter-religious dialogue and dialogue between different ideas and social groups
  • Seeking the Latvian identity in a globalized world

In our programmes, we seek to balance the academic and the practical aspects but the main focus remains on the latter. It is important that the participants of our workshops and retreats feel empowered to use their new knowledge and experience in their everyday lives.
