"Jordan is my coach and though he is 20 years younger than I am, I cannot
recommend his ages-old wisdom--deeply anchored in integral theory and
practice--more highly. His warmth and capacity to understand complex personal,
social and organizational issues continually astounds me and I am grateful for his
presence in my life." -- Rachel Eryn Kalish, Founder, Workplace Connections
Jordan Luftig, MA Educator and Coach
Jordan is an educator and coach specializing in integral theory and practice. He received his MA in Integral Psychology from JFK University where he teaches integrally informed courses in the enneagram, phenomenology, post-metaphysics, coaching, and politics. His coaching certification is through Integral Coaching Canada, recognized by Integral Institute as the leading trainers of professional coaches.
Clients who work with Jordan not only benefit from his integral vision and approach to change, they relax in the presence of his warm and playful nature, creating optimal conditions for them to open to new possibilities, build new competencies, and achieve outcomes that are meaningful and sustainable.
Jordan is particularly passionate about collaborating with the change makers, opinion shapers, and “cultural creatives” working at the leading edge of consciousness and culture. His approach is nonetheless suitable for all manner of topics and scales of complexity. It is grounded in ...
- PLAY: an ethic of play is vital to the well-being and development of individuals and organizations (and evidence suggests that workplaces, not leisure activities, are more conducive to states of playfulness)
- PERSPECTIVE: holding a panoramic view and comprehensive map of reality makes one a better navigator of the territory of their life
- PRESENCE: with a capital “P” because intimacy with Being is key to our leadership ability and quality of life
- PRACTICE: practice does not make perfect, but it is necessary to become the change we wish to see in the world
Jordan brings to his client engagements extensive knowledge of Integral Life Practice (ILP). As a member of Integral Institute’s inaugural ILP group he co-authored a guidebook to ILP group facilitation, and he served as an editor of the book “Integral Life Practice: A 21st-Century Blueprint for Physical Health, Emotional Balance, Mental Clarity, and Spiritual Awakening” (Wilber et al., 2008).
Some of Jordan’s favorite practices are meditation, ecstatic dance, political discourse analysis, collaborative inquiry, tennis, and the 3-Body Workout. Jordan lives with two good friends in an apartment overlooking Oakland’s Lake Merritt, around which he regularly jogs with joy.
