This background has led Michael to take on a teaching and tutoring role with the Integral Leadership Institute's Living Philosophy program which runs for three, 10-week terms a year. Michael finds that this role enriches his own practice and provides a stimulus for participants to engage in practices of being in the moment and meditation as well as the study of philosophers ancient and post-modern.
