Coaching with Jordan

What are your areas of expertise/research interests within the self-development/awareness context?

My interests are always evolving; some classics include Integral Theory, collective self-awareness, collective action, organizational development and culture, relationship to money, nonduality and how other mystical practice intersect and don't, metaphysical assumptions and underpinnings, pedagogy.

What are your relateful personal interests?

Again these are constantly shifting, but right now looking at how this all gets applied to the places with least alignment in our world (like the Middle East).

Are there any inspirational or influential people you’d like to mention? What about them means something to you?

My biggest influences are Ken Wapnick and Ken Wilber. They both exemplify big heart and big mind, and have managed to create new kosmic grooves that are grounded and normal, despite taking hits along the way.

Do you have a favorite book, movie, or TV show that you would like to share, and say how/why it speaks to you?

Babe the Pig, the best movie on yin and yang leadership I've ever seen; Mad Max: Fury Road; the best movie on the spiritual journey and how what we're seeking we already have, and yet we can't quite recognize it without going on the journey.

What people are saying about Jordan:

Terry Patten, Integral Life Practice:

“Jordan Allen is a force of nature—passionately, dynamically, creatively alive. To encounter his fierce multidimensional caring intelligence is to be given a tangible reason to be hopeful for our future”

Matt, California:

"I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed and benefited from our session. It reminded me why I was drawn to Circling in the first place, and it made me see the potential of this work all over again."

Griffin, Texas:

"Just sitting in connection with Jordan - it’s impossible to not raise your consciousness. Sitting in that place is the only way I have access to the things that truly matter - the things I sought as a mathematician and social entrepreneur. Now I see beauty in the small and subtle things. I’m able to feel the satisfaction of success I already had."

Pamela, New York:

"Coaching with Jordan this year has really helped catapult me out of places where I have been hiding for a long while. And even though I’m still easing my way out, I already see and feel more of myself - so precious to me."

Ken Wilber, on Jordan's book: 

A Beautiful Apocalypse is a splendid presentation of Integral ideas in a novel form—a highly readable, engaging, and altogether fun novel. Give it a little time and see if you don’t agree…”
