Waking Up is Growing Up is Waking Up...

Does your state practice sometimes become dry?

Does it seem to no longer work like it used to?

How do you design state practices that fit with your developmental level?

There are a number of topics I want to share on this site, and the first one responds to these questions. Together, we will explore this topic related to the STAGES model.

  1. Receptive experiences and what kinds of state openings tend to occur at different stages?
  2. Active practices: what stages might they work best for?
  3. Reciprocal practices and which stages might respond best to this kind of practice.
  4. Interpenetrative practices: Where do these state practices fit with stages?

STAGES is an integrally based development model that charts human development from infancy to the highest levels of development that humans are capable of. The model was created by Terri O’Fallon and is based decades of education experience and more than seven years of research. It is the first integrally based developmental model to incorporate quadrants, levels, states, lines and types, and it has been statistically grounded to correlate with the most widely used and researched model of adult human development, the Loevinger lineage.
