Terry Patten, author of a book on Biocircuits, serves as Co-Director of the Integral Practice Center at Integral University.
For fifteen years (1973-1988) Terry was a student and editor for Adi Da during which time he co-authored (with Adi Da and Saniel Bonder) the book Garbage and the Goddess and served as founding editor of The Dawn Horse, Vision Mound, and The Laughing Man magazines. During that time, his work and service ranged from presenting public events and courses to community relations and sales to producing large musical performances and recordings.
Terry is best known as the founder and guiding spirit behind the Tools For Exploration catalog, which first gathered in one place the many emerging brain-mind machines, subtle energy tools, and other cutting-edge technologies for expanding awareness. During this time (1988-1998) he co-authored (with Dr. Julian Isaacs) A Double-Blind Study of the Biocircuit, a Putative Subtle Energy Device, co-designed various biofeedback tools and psycho-acoustic recordings, and managed the development of Heartmath's Freeze-Framer Heart Rate Variability Monitor.
Terry is an entrepreneur, investor, and consultant. He's also a writer, teacher and coach and a grassroots conservationist. Since selling Tools For Exploration in 1998, he has co-directed two grassroots environmental organizations, one of which, Old-Growth Again, demonstrates a new economic model for sustainable Redwood forestry. He currently lives in San Rafael, California with his wife and son where he is working on a book about integral practice.
