Post-formal Stages of Cognitive Development from the Perspective of Tibetan Great Completion Meditation

Testing this spectrum model has been limited by finding a sufficient number of Western subjects that operate out of these higher levels of cognitive development. Great Completion Tibetan meditation offers detailed descriptions of each of these stages.
