Heather Larkin – Secretary
Following seven years of full-time practice as a licensed clinical social worker, Heather obtained her doctoral degree. She teaches master’s of social work students and integrates research to inform social service agencies implementing “Restorative Integral Support.”
After joining Integral Institute in 2004, Heather discovered that Waking Down in Mutuality (WDM) offers a practical, down-to-earth, and embodied Integral experience. Recognizing that this community-based approach complements and enhances existing spiritual traditions, she seeks to increase accessibility and empower people from all walks of life.
