Terry Patten - In Memoriam

Terry Patten was a philosopher, author, activist, social entrepreneur, and the author of A New Republic of the Heart: An Ethos for Revolutionaries. He was a leading voice for facing, examining, and healing our global crisis through the marriage of higher consciousness and activism. As creator and host of the webcast “Beyond Awakening,” he has explored the biggest questions of our time in over a hundred public conversations with some of the world’s most prominent and dynamic thought leaders.

A devotee of Adi Da for 15 years, in 1988 Terry founded Tools for Exploration (now Tools for Wellness), which first brought together in one place many of the emerging brain-mind machines, subtle energy tools, and other cutting-edge technologies for expanding awareness. Terry co-designed, co-produced, and co-authored numerous biofeedback tools, psycho-acoustic recordings, books, and articles on stress reduction, peak performance, and neurodevelopmental re-education.

Terry subsequently co-directed two grassroots environmental organizations, and then became a teacher and senior associate at Ken Wilber’s Integral Institute in 2004.  Terry travelled widely, connecting leaders and institutions worldwide.
