MetAware Scientific Methodology

Scientific Methodologies grow up. Their developmental trajectory includes qualitative measurements popular at the 3.5 Achiever stage, to qualitative descriptions at the 4.0 Pluralist stage, to mixed methods at the 4.5 Teal stage. But what kind of methodology evolves into the MetAware tier of development? Advanced states are required to access the MetAware stages in addition […]

Neuroscience Behind the Stages Poster

In the past few decades scientists have discovered a huge number of new facts regarding to the operation of the nervous system. A lot of them fit well into the upper right quadrant of the AQAL system. Some of these are described in the presentation. On the successive Wilberian levels, new structures appear in the […]

Theory U and Presencing for an Integral World

Otto Scharmer is a Senior Lecturer in the MIT Management Sloan School and co-founder of the Presencing Institute. He chairs the MIT IDEAS program for cross-sector innovation and introduced the concept of “presencing”—learning from the emerging future—in his bestselling books Theory U and Presence (the latter co-authored with P. Senge et al). He is co-author […]

Information as The Power of Integral

Global Integral Awakens – what could that mean? Among other things, that the integral approach transcends its underlying philosophical framework and strives for meaningful application in day-to-day practice. Therefore, there is a growing need for easy-to-grasp tools that could integrate the AQAL principles with traditionally used information processing techniques. In this process, there must come […]

Often times we hide these powerful feelings and turn away from our companion, fearing over-exposure. What if we do not turn away and allow these complex and potent feelings to settle into a resonance to […]

Complexity vs Simplicity in Ego Development

Scientific studies of awakening and transpersonal development are hindered by inadequate and conflicting terms and models. I will present a framework, based on well-validated studies of ego development and human meaning-making wisdom, which coordinate the STAGES model with models of hierarchical complexity, and proposes to clarify some common puzzles in our understanding of what spiritual […]

The Evolution of Planetary Awakening

Planetary views began seeding our developmental perspectives since the 1960’s and have continued to evolve. The screenplay of the post-modern integral version of the planetary awakening is being written right now, as we socially construct each other here, in this field. But what does “planetary awakening” mean in an integral world? This talk will suggest […]

Next-Stage Organizations: A Transdisciplinary Case

The essence of this transdisciplinary case study was to provide a methodological foundation and method for researching Next-Stage Organizations, as well as to explore the correlation between adult and organizational development and the efficacy of using O’Fallon’s STAGES to assess an organization. Three Founder/CEO’s from Laloux’s Reinventing Organizations completed STAGES assessments. Organizational data was gathered […]
