He also examines the various ways our sense of self gives rise to separation even while awakening and enlightenment are unfolding.

Make Peace with your Mind: 30-Day Challenge

Make Peace with your Mind: 30-Day Challenge

Transform your inner critic with this brand-new mindfulness toolkit by Mark Coleman

Based on Mark's new book...

The voice of the Inner Critic is pervasive. It is perhaps the number one source of unhappiness and suffering in the modern world. The good news is you can do something about this tyrant who threatens to torment you on every step of your life journey. With the concrete and proven tools presented in this book, you can develop the awareness and compassion necessary to take control of your inner judge and create a more peaceful, joyful existence.

At its worst, the Inner Critic urges us to buy into a twisted version of reality, one in which we are never good enough, we aren’t worthy, and we can never atone for our mistakes or forgive those of others. It won’t let you forget that you messed up—whether you made a wrong turn, bet on a losing stock, or chose the crazy person to date. Unable to forgive ourselves, we also find ourselves lacking the ability to truly forgive others.

Sometimes the Critic takes on a friendlier tone, yet this can prove just as insidious. The tyrant disguises itself as a helpful coach who says things like you really should try harder and you can do better. But these messages undermine our wellbeing and self-esteem. The Critic also drives the habit of comparing, reminding us there is always someone smarter, younger, thinner, kinder, wealthier, more talented and more successful out there.

What gives the Inner Critic its power is the way it tunes into our inner world, attacking who we are at our essence. Driven by its intimate knowledge of our weaknesses and insecurities, we end up in a bitter, panicked, and endless quest to get more and be more—of anything and everything: grander houses, higher salaries, more cars, bigger 401Ks, and more and more stuff. The Critic tells us to lose weight, get fit, be prettier, have a better relationship, raise more perfect children, and make more of an impact on the world. Beaten down into depression or struggling to find relief from the constant turmoil of anxiety and insomnia this voice creates, we end up suffering from eating disorders, workaholism, anger management problems, addiction, and engaging in many other forms of self-harm.

Thankfully, you don’t have to let this tyrant rule your inner world. You can make a conscious choice to live differently.
— Mark Coleman

With the simple gifts of mindfulness and compassion, and by practicing the behaviors presented in this mobile-friendly practice program, you can discover a whole new way of being in the world. You can let go of harsh judgments of self and others. You can open your eyes to the truth that you are already more than enough. You can come to rest in a peaceful place of love, understanding and forgiveness. 

Integrative Inquiry

Integrative Inquiry

INIQ is now available in 3 versions:


The Integrative Inquiry Curriculum uses research-proven mindfulness based stress reduction practices, self-compassion practices, and inquiry coaching in order to train attention and emotion regulations skills as well as enhance cognitive regulation skills, which are expected to increase persistence and degree completion via improved critical thinking dispositions, decreased stress and anxiety, and increased self-compassion and resilience. Such outcomes are therefore expected to increase inner peace and self-compassion as well as outward expressions of compassion and creativity within ambiguity which result in the creation of peaceful communities.

Intention training
The purpose is not to only see what we want to see, but to see what is really there through the lens of our intention.  And in seeing what is there, guided by our intention, we can see all of the choices that are possible.  This allows us the opportunity to connect to our purpose even in the midst of uncertainty.

Who Am I? What Do I Want? What Is My Life’s Purpose? What Am I grateful for?

Attention Training
Whatare you paying attention to right now?   We can’t actually know what we are paying attention to without an awarenessof what we are paying attention to. 

How judgmental of yourself are you when your attention wonders away from what you intended, and how kindly do you direct your attention back to where you want it placed?

Empowering Choice
Knowing that you can become aware of where your attention resides while you are doing anything anywhere is empowering. We invite you to begin training your attention while you are engaged in other day-to-day experiences.  Yes, you can train your attention anytime anywhere and as such, you can begin to notice the quality of your attention and make choices with regard to that. 

What is the quality of your attention as it shifts from your surroundings in the room and sensations in the body back to breath?

Emotion Training
Attention training is leading us to become aware of our emotions.  Emotions may first be noticed as bodily sensations.  What we train here is your attention to emotions that arise in your body before the public display of behavior associated with those emotions is ever seen.  If you become aware of your emotions, then you get to choose whether and how to express your emotions. 

How aware of your emotions are you before they are expressed in a way that is visible to others?

Inquiry Training
Thoughts, just like emotions arise.  We can’t stop them from coming.  However, through attention training, we can become aware they have arrived and eventually become aware they are arriving, as such we can learn to work collaboratively with them and choose to focus on that which aligns with our intention.

Setting Your Intentions (sample video from the mobile-friendly INIQ 16-week program)

The creative and unconventional ways of the Integrative Inquiry course taught me that leadership is not so much about how I manage others but rather how I manage myself. It is about understanding who I am, how I am feeling and how these feelings impact my emotions, thoughts and behaviors. It is about being in a constant state of inquiry and taking time to honor the pause. It is about not judging myself and trying to maintain a certain standard but rather practicing self-compassion, which in turn allows me to practice compassion with others.
— Dilcie, Program Participant
Journaling while learning how to not judge and simply breath – allowed me to learn how to create a space between the reality of a situation and my response to it which has enhanced my ability to process my thoughts. I developed a stronger sense of self and what I love, value, who I value, and why I value my life. Journaling provided an opportunity to have a deeper relationship with myself so that I can better serve others. Journaling also invited time and space to consider new ways of looking at my life that helped me process and then release expectations.
