Welcome to ClintFuhs.com. My goal is to inject simplicity into the tangled complexity of integral. I've been a dedicated student of integral theory and practice for nearly ten years and a senior student of Ken Wilber's for the last five. The most important thing I have learned in that time is that you never completely understand the integral model, and you must always strive to cultivate an embodied understanding of the territory it describes. The deeper you penetrate, the more there is to discover. The process is ongoing and truly a practice for life.
I created this site as a way to meet people who are passionate about understanding integral and putting it to work in the lives. If that describes you - I'm here to serve and collaborate. I have a lot of experience working with the integral model in theory, application, and practice. From individual coaching and personal consulting to workshops and writing, my hope is that you can benefit from some of the work I've done over the last decade. My passion is working to find the simplicity on the other side of complexity. Under the guidance of Ken, I have driven right to the heart of the integral model and emerged with something to share. Drop me a line - I look forward to connecting.
I live my life passionately. While people typically describe me as intense, I strive to pair that intensity with an embodied sense of purpose, direction, and compassion. This aim characterizes my work and the service I offer to clients.
My path towards integration began in high school where I struggled under the relentless pressure to specialize, despite my deep inclinations for breadth over depth. Just before entering college, I found Ken's work and thus a balance between these opposing drives. I labored for years— a lone integralist in the wilderness of Vermont— until I roped 8 students into a class I taught on integral theory during my senior year. And so it began.
I then made my way to Colorado and started working with Integral Institute just prior to the launch of Integral Naked. After six years of work in operations, teaching, and curriculum, my journery with Integral Life has undergone a profound and exciting shift. I am now the founder and CEO of Core Integral, Inc. Dedicated to ensuring the integrity of a comprehensive and engaged integral understanding, Core Integral works in partnership with Ken Wilber and Integral Life.
I am currently completing a Ph.D. in Human and Organizational Development at Fielding Graduate University. My research focuses on the nature of perspective-taking—for which I was awarded best paper at the 2008 Integral Theory conference—and on an embodied perspective training practice called the Meta Practice—a joint development effort with colleague Brian Berger.
Within the next year, I will be teaching in affiliation with Core Integral, iEvolve Global Practice Community, and the degree programs at John F. Kennedy and Fielding Graduate Universities. Additionally, I am being trained to use the Lectical Assessment System with Developmental Testing Service.
One-on-one engagement is the most effective way to work. Together we can focus on exactly what you aspire to, targeting the areas that need the most attention, freeing you to understand, apply, and communicate the integral model unlike ever before.
Consider personal coaching an individualized, customizable degree in AQAL theory and application. I will transfer the knowledge I've gained from hours of personal work with Ken directly to you through personal coaching - the most effective and exciting way to expand your capacity.
I offer focused and scalable coaching engagements in the following three areas. Let me know if you have something different in mind, or if you are interested in a 30minute free consultation.
One of the most difficult aspects of learning integral is functionally applying it to your work or another field of particular interest. Application coaching focuses on the topic area of your choice and results in a robust, customized, and accurate integral application that covers every component of the integral framework.
High quality writing about integral topics is easy to recognize but another thing entirely to produce. Whether it's your first book manuscript, a journal article, or something for school - we'll work page-by-page, clarifying the presentation of difficult concepts, ideas and arguments.
Even if you've mastered your personal understanding of integral, presenting it clearly, concisely and in a stimulating manner to live audiences takes some time to master. Drawing on my experience teaching over 100 workshops, I will guide you towards embodying a teaching presence that may be years beyond your current experience.

Teaching is my core passion. It allows me to tap into a primordial understanding and presence - creating a knowledge transmission that renders the complexity of integral as an expression of beautiful simplicity.
I have taught more than 100 lectures and workshops on integral theory and practice. From beginner to advanced theoretical topics as well as applications to practice, leadership, and perspective-taking, I offer teaching that last from a few hours to a few days.
Described by many as the turning point in their understanding of integral, my workshops offer a practice-oriented and relevant approach to even the most advanced of theoretical topics. Not only will participants deeply connect with the reasons they engage the integral model, they will leave with a more accurate and grounded understanding of its nuances.
I am available for workshops of any length or size and for a variety of audiences. Give me a call and we can discuss your needs and the curriculum that can service them. Click "See Rates" above for more information on my teaching.
"Clint's ability to teach Integral theory is truly impressive - second only to his degree of understanding"
Second only to teaching, the process of writing about integral concepts is the most expansive endeavor for deepening your relationship to the model. Here I offer you a series of articles that I have written over the last few years as part of Fielding's program. They cover a range of topics from human development and leadership to epistemology and perspective-taking.
Feel free to download any of the articles. I hope you enjoy them. Only a few are in final form, so if your intention to is to cite them, please let me know. Most are written for an audience that is not entirely familiar with integral theory, so feel free to send them to a friend or colleague.
One of the most effective and exciting ways to teach integral is through interactive e-learning programs. I created the following e-learnings with the learner in mind. As such, these presentations speak directly to you - an entirely different experience than watching a video of someone speaking to an audience you weren't a part of. The end result is something I hope you will enjoy.
The following presentations were created for IntegralLife.com. Follow the link below to view the content that I am most passionate about creating.

|Article Title||Download Link||Description|
|Toward an Integral Epistemology||Download||This paper traces the development of the philosophy of science from a positivist to postpositivist conception before making the case for an integral conception based on an Integral epistemology grounded in the Integral post-metaphysics of Integral Methodological Pluralism|
|A Quadrivial Analysis of Eight Leadership Books||Download||This article presents a unique Integral research method using Integral Theory’s quadrants to conduct literature reviews. In particular, I apply this method to analyze eight popular books on leadership. In so doing I am able to identify the quadrant focus to determine which aspect(s) of reality these books privilege. As a result of this thorough analysis the behavioral and systemic focus of the field of leadership is revealed and a vision of Integral leadership is highlighted. In conclusion this article discusses the reasons underlying the results as well as the implications they have on our collective understanding of leadership|
|A Map for the Integral Leader||Coming Soon!||Coming Soon! This article is in need of a few revisions.|
|Developing Perspective and Presence Through Structure-Stage and State-Stage Growth||Download||This article provides an overview of structure-stage and state-stage unfolding, two distinct yet simultaneous movements in human development. After exploring seven structures in each of six developmental lines— cognition, self-identity, orders of consciousness, values, morals, and faith—and four states in three traditions—mystic Christianity, the Hindu Yogasutras, and Tibetan Mahamudra—it will show how integral leaders can navigate the vertical and horizontal spectrums to cultivate perspective and presence, respectively.|
|An Integral Map of Perspective-Taking||Download||By combining past insights into the nature of perspective-taking with an innovative application of leading-edge concepts in Integral Theory, this article offers the most comprehensive description of the territory of perspective-taking. It traces perspectival development through four levels of increasing complexity, shows how different types of perspective-taking enact phenomena in each of the quadrants, and utilizes the integral math notation to detail over 1,700 perspectival expressions emerging as individuals develop through the teal altitude|
|Toward an Integral Approach to Organization Theory||Download||(Still in DRAFT form) This paper explores organizational theories that have emerged over the last century and could be categorized in one of three broad historical perspectives: objectivist, subjectivist and intersubjectivist. In particular, it investigates how these three perspectives explain organization-environment relations, organization design and structure, and organization culture. Finally, it examines the feasibility of using the Integral Approach as a foundation for constructing an organizational metatheory that includes the partial truths of each perspective|
|An Alternate Approach to the Evaluation and Formulation of AQAL Critiques||Coming Soon!||(Still in DRAFT form) This article presents a simple framework for apporaching AQAL critiques as well as serving as a message to the Integral Community|
