Welcome to the Taos Institute

The Taos Institute is a community of scholars and practitioners concerned with the social processes essential for the construction of reason, knowledge, and human value.

 We are a non-profit (501 c3) organization committed to exploring, developing and disseminating ideas and practices that promote creative, appreciative and collaborative processes in families, communities and organizations around the world.

We achieve our educational ends through conferences, workshops, publications, a PhD program, a distance learning program, newsletters, and web-based offerings. We work at the interface between the scholarly community and societal practitioners from communities of mental health, social work, counseling, organizational change, education, community building, gerontology and medicine. We develop and explore the ways in which scholarly research can enrich professional practices, and practices can stimulate scholarly inquiry.

Message from the President

We invite you to read the commentary by Kenneth Gergen...

In the rush of daily life we tend to focus on the present and near future.What is past is past! Yet, there is good reason to cast one’s gaze toward the wake. There we learn of the intensity of movement and its trajectory.
