8-Week On-line Course w/ Miles Kessler

The 6 Stages Of Personal Growth & Spiritual Evolution













If you're on a quest towards personal and spiritual evolution, and you're frustrated because you haven't felt a direct sense of development for some time...

Or if you've been working for years trying to actualize your full potential and give your gifts to the world but you keep walking into pitfalls and dead-ends that hold you back from progress

Then make sure you read this letter right now because...

In just a moment, I'm going to share with you a developmental system I use in my Aikido practice to:

  • Cultivate greater awareness, connection, and creativity
  • Navigate through conflicts in challenging situation with effectiveness and poise
  • Drive your development forward and actualize your highest potential

The great thing about this system is that it follows the blueprint of natural human development - it's already inside you - and you can learn to take advantage of it right now.

A Life-Long Journey Of

If you're frustrated you've invested years working to reach mastery (that you KNOW others have attained)... but you're still not quite there, and you can't seem to figure out why ...

Then you'll want to read every word of this page...

Because this system is a proven path for continuous growth and mastery of very process of your evolution.

Now, I know this is a big claim... so before we go any further, there's one thing I want to make sure you understand:

I don't believe in "instant enlightenment", or cool techniques that involve quick-fix solutions, wishful thinking, or feel-good experiences. That's why...

The System You’re About To Learn Is Probably Not Like Anything Else You’ve Seen Or Tried

What I teach is based on the fundamental and verifiable principles of human evolution, rather than the latest new-age trend.

It seems that every day there's a book or another "Guru" popping up claiming they've discovered the "ultimate secret."

While these fly by night fads always seem to be focused on superficial practices that only lend temporary results, when it comes to transformational work, I've always been one to focus on the "deep dive" approach.

Taking this approach has really paid off for my students and me in the long run, and I think it will for you, too.

And it's not really surprising, considering the empirical studies this system is based on...


Combining Traditional Wisdom, Developmental Psychology, And The Conflict Resolution Of Aikido

This system is based on the timeless wisdom of spiritual traditions, groundbreaking discoveries in Developmental Psychology, & the conflict resolution inherent in art of Aikido.

After 30 years commitment on the path ofAikido, reseraching human consciousness through meditation and spritual work, immersing myself in the world Intergral Theory and Spiral Dynamics, and 15 years of teaching hundreds of individuals and groups around the world... 

I've developed a proven 6 Stage system that anyone can use to:

  • Take an assessment on the developmental stage to gain clarity on the next steps
  • Identify and avoid blocks, pitfalls and backslides that lead to dead-ends
  • Establish practices that facilitate continual growth across all areas of life

I've put this system inside a training program I call, "Evolution Of Response", and I'd like to share that with you right now...


Evolution Of Response

The 6-Stage Developmental System For Greater Awareness,
Connection, & Creativity In Aikido & In Life

The Evolution Of Response is a live online training program that will guide you through the 6-steps of continuous personal and spiritual development - your very own source code of human evolution - and teach you how to integrate this process into your life.

This is a system of vertical learning I have developed and refined for over 20 years of working with hundreds of individuals and groups in the laboratories of Aikido dojos, businesses, think tanks, and organizations. 

If you're lacking a clear direction on your developmental path, of feel that you keep hitting the same wall, then this program is going to reset your compass, optimize your practice, and move you forward on your path.

If you struggle to maintain balance when experiencing stress and conflict, this program will help you to face and contain life's challenges with the effectiveness, poise, and the clarity of a Zen master.

If you're frustrated after investing many years in personal and spiritual practice, but you still feel far from achieving mastery, this program will help you understand what you're doing wrong, and show you that the goal is much closer than you think.

Letter From Miles Kessler

Hello All,

I'm excited to announce that for only the second time I will be offering a comprehensive 8-week on line program to teach you the practice of "Evolution Of Response".

I have been teaching Aikido, meditation, and "Integral Practice" for over 20 years. Yet, even though these rich disciplines are expressions of the source code of the universe... all to often they are not connected.

On my own spiritual path I have had the honor of deeply learning from some of the greatest masters in the Aikido and Buddhist meditation traditions, as well as deep fellowship with some of the top Integral facilitators. Together with their invaluable guidance I have also had the great privilege of being in spiritual friendship with a global community of teachers and researchers who are tirelessly working to evolve culture and consciousness in a way that meets the needs of life in the 21st century.

Both in my teaching travels and here at home, I am regularly approached by students who are seeking to unlock their greater potential in a way that is both meaningful and applicable to their lives. It is with this clear communal need that I have developed this course... just for you.

Through out this course, together with your global practice community you will learn the potent, life-changing developmental practices that have already transformed the lives of many.

I hope that you will join me in this developmental journey of awakening through the practice of the "Evolution Of Response".

With Love,



"Miles is a modest and precious teacher who creates an atmosphere that is very pleasant and special. He provides practical tools that helped me to integrate the teachings in daily life and better contain the challenges of a long day."

Brenda Cheyne, New Zealand

"The Integral Dojo's online courses have taken my Aikido to a new level of understanding. More importantly, working with Miles has opened new visions in my spiritual practice. It has been a turning point in my life."

Moris Saul
Izmir, Turkey

"The "Meditation For Aikidoka" course helped me to make important progress in both my meditation and aikido practice. The virtual classes, community calls, along with the dharma discussions available online all helped to implement into daily practice what earlier was sort of a struggle.

About Miles Kessler

Miles Kessler Sensei is an American teacher of Aikido (6th Dan), meditation, and Integral Practice. He lived in Asia for over 12 years achieving mastery in both Aikido and meditation.

Miles studied Aikido full time at the famous Iwama dojo with the late Morihiro Saito Sensei (9th dan Aikikai), including one year as a live-in apprentence (uchi deshi). 

After leaving Japan Miles spent a total of 3 years on intensive Vipassana meditation retreats. He practiced under the guidance of the renowned Burmese meditation master Sayadaw U Pandita in Burma, and Sayadaw U Vivekananda in Lumbini, Nepal. It was under their close guidance that Miles finished his formal meditation training in the Mahasi tradition in 2006. 

 Miles holds lineage in both the Iwama tradition of Aikido, and the Mahasi tradition of Vipassana meditation. This dual lineage is a rare accomplishment, making Miles a unique gift among western teachers.

Miles has been teaching internationally and guiding individuals and groups in developmental and transformational work for the past 20 years.

Miles has lived in Israel since 2006, where he is the guiding teacher of the Integral Dojo - Tel Aviv, a center for Aikido, Dharma, and Integral Practice. 

Here’s What Other Teachers Are Saying About Miles

Diane Musho Hamilton - Zen Sensei, Integral Facilitator, Author Of "The Zen Of You And Me"

“Miles Kessler is a rare kind of teacher. He has cultivated deep meditative discipline, he is a fully embodied Aikido master, and most importantly, his heart is wide open. You can't help but grow in his company."

Richard Strozzi-Heckler, PhD - 7th dan Aikido Sensei, Executive Leadership Coach, Author of "In Search Of The Warrior Spirit"

"A bow of acknowledgement to Miles for creating the Virtual Dojo. If Aikido is going to have a part to play in this rapidly changing world, then we need Virtual Dojos to bring us together to share, collaborate and practice musubi. With this work Miles is helping us move towards leaving the world a better place.”

Linda Holiday Sensei - 6th Dan Aikido Teacher, Director of Aikido Santa Cruz, Author of "Journey To The Heart Of Aikido"

“Miles’ teaching resonates with clarity and truth. You get a sense that his mind, heart and body are all in alignment as he speaks. His sincerity and humility make what he offers even more accessible and valuable.”

Lawrence Koichi Barrish - Senior Shinto Priest of Tsubaki Grand Shrine of America, Dojo-Cho Kannagara Aikido

"Kessler Sensei embodies an abundant passion, penetrating understanding, and unusual depth of ability. Koichi Tohei Sensei once remarked that we human beings are like “people who have been bequeathed golden treasure by our parents, yet leave that treasure locked away, and instead beg for pennies”. It is my opinion that this describes much of what we see under the umbrella term “Aikido”. A welcome and bright exception would be the clarity and vision so elegantly expressed through the work of Miles Kessler Sensei.”

Wendy Palmer Sensei - 6th Dan Aikido Sensei, Emdodied Leadership Author of "The Practice Of Freedom: Aikido Principles As A Spiritual Guide"

"I share a background with Miles of long-term mindfulness and aikido practice. I feel great appreciation for the energy and effort he generates to create opportunities for practitioners of aikido and mindfulness to share how they bring their practice to the world. It is such a gift!"

Patrick Cassidy - 6th Dan Aikido Sensei, Meditation Teacher, Conflict Resolution Trainer

"Miles' spiritual insight, understanding of the Integral perspective, and embodiment of the principles of Aikido make him an rare facilitator and teacher. His unique capacity to share directly with others is an inspiring vision of human transformation.”

Mark Walsh - Coach in “Embodied Business”, “Leadership Training”, Director of Integration Training

“Miles is one of the wisest and most human facilitators I know. I love him dearly and respect his work."
