Good Things Are Coming!

Welcome to the journey as we continue the pioneering work of Dr. David Drake, the founder of narrative coaching.

Walk with us . . .

Moment Institute was launched in 2019 to serve the global community of practitioners who have studied narrative coaching over the past 15 years. In that time, NC has become an even more potent transformative process.

In 2020 we are taking the work further based on David's latest research and insights. We are moving beyond coaching to offer practitioners and clients a more integrative approach to healing and wholeness at all levels.

We will launch a platform to connect community members, a master program that brings together David’s entire life's work, and narrative labs to create resources to address the critical issues we face. For now, we want to give you a taste of what is to come.


. . .  and the thousands of practitioners like you whom we worked with last year.

Drawing on over 100 conversations with our community about the state of coaching and the world, we are creating a community-centered website to help practitioners deepen their mastery and develop new ways of working.

What did we learn?
Practitioners want to integrate what they know and access their wisdom, not add more stuff. They want to openly share with kindred spirits what matters most to them, not be limited by jargon. They want to bring their full humanity and step into bigger conversations, not be stuck in professional silos.

The world needs more hope not more hype. In a world that is on fire, we can no longer afford to argue over whose water is better.

Come help us develop new narratives and new practices to engage with the big issues of our time — from the deeply personal such as trauma to the profoundly global such as the climate crisis.

Come join us for a special new program!

We are calling all coaches, psychologists, HR/OD professionals, educators, and change advocates who have outgrown their professions and are ready for what is next. This includes all of you who have learned from David in the past and want to have an even greater impact with this work.

In this new program, you will be introduced to the integrative framework that underpins narrative coaching and provides the platform for a new form of professional practice. Imagine having real human conversations instead of chasing idealized states . . . Using design thinking to reduce burnout . . . Connecting your personal growth with social issues . . .

This framework was developed through an analysis of the success factors in the narrative coaching process and the research on how adults develop as well as our organizational projects: (1) leadership programs with high impact and less cost; (2) participatory culture change projects that actually worked; and (3) breakthroughs for hundreds of individual and team clients.

See below for more details. If you are in/near Australia, enroll now to get the early bird rate for The Beyond Coaching™ Experience as we launch the Tour. More dates will be announced soon for North America and Europe.


The Beyond Coaching™ Experience

Being present to WHAT IS and daring to imagine WHAT IF

We are excited to launch this new program to introduce practitioners like you to a more integrative way of working. It is timely because the needs of our clients and our world are changing faster than our traditional professions and practices. This immersive introduction brings together enlightenment and pragmatism to help you to re-imagine your work. We have designed this experience as a unique opportunity to work directly with David.


  • An introduction to the Beyond Coaching™ framework
  • An experience using its five elements to upgrade your practice
  • A template for using the framework to address a real issue
  • An overview of how to use it with internal or external clients
  • A taste of the threshold you will need to cross to work this way
  • A guide to create a sustainable work portfolio for you and the planet

This is a wonderful opportunity to take your practice to the next level and distinguish yourself in a crowded field. It gives you a valuable glimpse into our bigger program, five years in the making, that is coming soon. We kept the fee reasonable so it is available to all those who are serious about playing with us. We are co-creating new ways of working that are urgently needed in our careers and our communities.
