“Preparation can only help you with what you can imagine happening.”
– Diane Musho Hamilton
How do you prepare for what you can’t imagine?
Either it’s an unsolvable riddle, or the most challenging computational problem you’ll ever face.
But life is not waiting for us to complete that calculation. And it isn’t an unsolvable riddle either, because adaptation and creativity are real! It is possible to prepare for what we don’t know and can’t imagine.
First, we need to understand “preparation” differently.

The Integral Facilitator Professional 9-month Certification
Rolling admission for October 2018 North American and European cohorts is open
Your capacity to participate and create in the unknown starts with your freedom of being.
In the realm of what we don’t know and haven’t seen before, our freedom of being is what makes us available to witness, listen, respond and act in alignment with the present moment.
We get in our own way less often. We become more available to what is needed.
We approach reality from the inside-out, instead of outside-in.
And we hone our skills against the powerful feedback of masters and peers in a context designed specifically for our own rapid iteration of practice, feedback, and learning.
An optimal adult learning environment includes mastery, observation, personal practice, feedback and peer learning.
When we can observe mastery, when we are supported to experiment, and when we precise and personalized feedback, we’re in our most generative zone of learning—the edge of support and challenge. Our focus is complete, our heart is engaged, and we can go beyond our comfort zone.
We still use our expertise, but when we have expanded our own way of being, we do so with more innovation, precision, and mastery.
