Miriam Mason Martineau
Miriam Mason Martineau's formal training lies in the areas of psychology, dance, choreography, and voice. She has a Masters Degree in Psychology from the University of Zurich, with a specialization in Youth and Child Psychology, and is also a certified teacher of Laban Modern Dance, as well as a singer and vocal instructor. She is vice-president of Next Step Integral. For the past 15 years Miriam has studied and researched how parenting can be pursued as a spiritual practice. She sees parenting as one of our greatest opportunities for personal growth and evolutionary activism. This has led her to offering courses on the topic, working as a coach for parents, and writing a book (forthcoming) titled Raising the Future — an Integral Evolutionary Approach to Parenting.
Miriam is also a private practice integral psychotherapist, and her interest in peak performance, vitality and integral leadership building have led her to her work with Univera, a cutting-edge international nutraceutical company. She also leads workshops on authentic voice and movement, and has performed both as a soloist and in a variety of choirs such as the Swiss National Television Choir. From 1992-2002 Miriam lived in an integrally-informed intentional community and there honed the skills of group facilitation, conflict resolution and generative dialogue.
