Integral Accounting is both an operating system and a way of being in the world that honours and reveals the true value already present in all dimensions of life. Most people approach the world through a type of uni-dimensional awareness. The form of dimensional constraint to which we’ve all become accustomed limits value to a single dimension we call “Money”.
But what would the world be like if we expanded our notions of value beyond a single dimension of money and into four, five, or even six dimensions. How would the world appear if we honored the dimension of money and recognized its role, but also perceived value across multiple domains and categories previously ignored or unnoticed. Integral Accounting upgrades our operating system so that we can see the value that is already present everywhere and in everything, no matter what the circumstances. Equipped with the optics of Integral Accounting, we begin to realize that everything we need for the next step on our journey (professionally, socially, personally) is already here. With the lens of Integral Accounting, we see that the world is perfectly abundant exactly as it is.
Because the Integral Accounting operating system allows us to see nakedly that which is already here (stripping us from our preconceived notions of positive/negative, valuable/invaluable) its application immediately emancipates latent wealth . (Latent wealth, might be something as simple as the car that sits unused in a garage all day, the person with a set of skills that the work place has not ‘hired’ but has application, the community or network of connections someone brings, or the unused technology abundant in a workplace.)
In the most practical sense, Integral Accounting allows wealth and well-being for all engaged. It is not a ‘new’ tool, rather a way of interacting with the world that has been deployed for far longer than our current system of business. When people are reminded of the application of Integral Accounting, their personal and business experience shifts from one of scarcity to one of abundance.
For those who are interested in a pure utility of value, Integral Accounting ensures no waste, no lost opportunity, and reduced financial cost. It also ensures that there is a connected community response instead of a transactional relationship.
This three-day workshop will be experiential. Specifically you will be working on your business.
- whole fields of opportunity will open that were either not seen or not accounted for
- a greater sense of the value in the system (not simply the value as measured in a monetary sense) and a way of accounting for this value beyond dimensional constraint
- the ability to see value where previously you did not
- further to this, the ability to choose a response to the value now accounted for that engages the whole ecosystem
Side note: Integral Accounting is easily recognized by indigenous communities, as it takes their thousands of years of engagement and brings it into the modern world. At the same time, it enables non-indigenous people to engage in ways that feel more whole.
To begin the process, we recommend introducing the six dimensions of value [Commodity; Custom & Culture; Knowledge; Money; Technology; Well-being] using the written summaries that are available on-line. They are summarized as:
Commodity – elements present in communities which, through cultivation, production, or value-add, can be used to generate means of social or commercial engagement. Some examples of Commodities are potential energy, food, water and raw materials.
Custom & Culture – practices and expressions of individual or community held values and traditions which create a context for social interactions. Some examples of Custom and Culture are expressions of social values, gatherings, interactions, art, music, and ceremonies.
Knowledge – information and experiential awareness which can be transmitted through language, art, or other expressions. Some examples of knowledge are the transfer of information and the expansion of understanding through literacy, marketing, negotiation and stories.
Money – a mode of transmitting and recognizing value exchange using physical or virtual surrogates including currency, systems of credit and barter and engaging any artifact constituting a consensus of recognized value exchange which, itself, is devoid of the value it represents. Some examples of money are currency, trade credits, debt, equity, futures, bonds, and contracts.
Technology – artifacts or schemes by which value-added experiences and production can be effectuated including any action, process, thing, or utility which allows for the manifestation of spatially and temporally defined tangible or intangible artifacts or event. Some examples of technology are appliances, tools, logistics, processing, communications, power, and infrastructure.
Well Being – the capacity for any person or ecosystem to function at their optimal level where conditions are suitable for a person to be at liberty to fully engage in any activity or social enterprise entirely of their choosing as and when they so choose. Some examples of well-being are health, sanctuary, medicine, inalienable rights, equitable and gainful engagement, fellowship, and fun.
The workshop will cover these specific elements.

The purpose of this course is to teach the fundamental principles of All-In-Consequence-Based Accounting and Wealth Metrics using Integral Accounting. We will examine the historical basis of modern economic systems and theory; the untested assumptions associated with value and trade metrics; the ‘costs’ and ‘benefits’ of models of profit-based economic models; and, comparative consequence-based assessment of scarcity and abundance based accounting. Using Integral Accounting Principles, students will gain practical experience in 6-dimension cost accounting and reporting.
This course is fundamental to the reconciliation of transformative learning and its integration into current economic and social systems. Students will be able to establish management tools for economic and social engagement fully informed in the metrics of the consensus systems and fully adept and using Integral Accounting in enterprises and life-fulfilling endeavors.
Moving from the means by which we communicate value, this course will build a fundamental application-ready praxis in measuring human endeavor in the context of the whole ecosystem and provide accessible tools for deploying ecosystem-scaled enterprise models for global endeavors.
Course Learning Outcomes
By the end of the course students will be able to:
1. Competently review GAAP-accounting financial statements, corporate reports, and public disclosures and measure the explicit and implicit ‘costs’ of enterprise operation in the context of the global ecosystem.
2. Competently articulate, using all 6 dimensions of Integral Accounting, the assessment of enterprise viability and sustainability.
3. Formulate a full enterprise plan (ready for deployment and provisioning) complete with pro forma abundance audits, Integral Accounting reporting metrics, and Return to Stakeholder reporting accountability statements.
4. Communicate the differential effect of consensus vs. Integral Accounting-based business rationale to a neutral audience.
5. Select at least one life objective to pursue using a non-monetary provisioning and accounting method.
Together, we’ll explore the importance of economic and financial literacy in light of the dominant social narratives briefly outlined below.
Each student will be required to conduct his or her own Integral Accounting Audit of Commodities, Customs & Cultures, Knowledge, Monetary Instruments, Technologies, and Well-Being Instruments to assemble into a deployable Enterprise Plan.
