Forman, Mark D. A Guide to Integral Psychotherapy. Albany, NY: SUNY Press, 2010.

  • An excellent introduction to how Integral thought might be applied to human growth and development within a psychotherapeutic context.

Hamilton, Diane Musho. Everything is Workable. Boston: Shambhala Press, 2013.

  • Diane Musho Hamilton is a Buddhist conflict mediator who works within in Integral framework. This is my favorite book on conflict resolution.

Ingersoll, R. Elliott, and David. M. Zeitler. Integral Psychotherapy: Inside Out / Outside In. Albany, NY: SUNY Press, 2010.

  • This is a wonderful book that applies the Integral framework to the field of psychotherapy.

McIntosh, Steve. The Presence of the Infinite. Wheaton, Ill.: Quest Books, 2015.

  • Steve McIntosh is probably my favorite current Integral thinker. In this book, he works through an evolutionary perspective on religion and spirituality. It contains helpful perspectives on what we mean when we talk about spiritual growth and the processes that guide it.

McIntosh, Steve. Integral Consciousness. St. Paul, Minn: Paragon House, 2007.

  • This provides a comprehensive history of the intellectual movements that consolidated into the Integral framework.

Patten, Terry. A New Republic of the Heart. Berkeley, Cali.: North Atlantic Books, 2018.

  • The author refers to this as ‘A guide to inner work for holistic change’, and this is as good a summary as any. It applies the insights of Integral thought to the work we need to do on ourselves in order to become better advocates and activists for needed change in the world.

Smith, Paul R. Integral Christianity. St. Paul, Minn.: Paragon House, 2011.

  • This book contains a great introduction to the Integral paradigm and how the different stages of development might apply to understanding Christian life and faith. In my personal opinion, however, the ultimate proposal it makes reads more postmodern than Integral; but this is still a valuable contribution.

Wilber, Ken. Integral Spirituality. Boston: Integral Books, 2006.

  • This is the canonical application of Integral thought to the realm of human spirituality. It also contains a thorough introduction to the Integral paradigm itself.

Wilber, Ken. A Brief History of Everything. Boston: Shambhala Press, 1996 (2000).

  • In this volume, Wilber explores what an evolutionary understanding of history and the human experience might look like.

Wilber, Ken, Terry Patten, Adam Leonard, and Marco Morelli. Integral Life Practice. Boston: Shambhala Press, 2012.

  • This is a great beginner’s guide to how the insights of Integral thought can be intentionally put into day-to-day practice to encourage growth in a holistic way.
