Our rapidly changing world requires new ways of seeing, knowing and caring. Churches and other Faith Communities can play a pivotal role in helping individuals and communities develop the cognitive, emotional and spiritual capacities needed to creatively engage the emerging world. In this workshop Tom will first introduce an Integral map to guide us into uncharted territory. He will then lead you through some of the personal transformation tools developed in his new book, Crazy Wisdom: Tools for Evolving Consciousness.

Overview of Crazy Wisdom Tools
Transformational Inquiry is an adaptation for faith communities of the Immunity to Change process developed by Robert Kegan and Lisa Lahey of Harvard University. For more than a decade Tom has used Transformational Inquiry in his church to:
- nurture personal and spiritual growth
- support social justice work
- build a resilient, adventurous community
“We are absolutely delighted that Tom has decided to offer this program and enthusiastically recommend this training! You are in for a huge treat.” ~ Robert Kegan and Lisa Lahey
Tom Thresher’s Transformational Inquiry is a superb practice for exposing and transforming the core assumptions that run—and sometimes ruin—your life. Incredibly effective and easy to practice, I can unconditionally recommend this work. ~ Ken Wilber, The Integral Vision
At the request of Kegan and Lahey Tom offers four day trainings in the Crazy Wisdom tools of Transformational Inquiry. Contact Tom here.
