Overview: This course is a practical introduction to a mindfulness meditation practice combining the ancient practice of mindfulness-meditation with the recent (last 100 years) ‘Maps of consciousness’ discovered by developmental psychology. It shows you how to put these two together in a way that supercharges your inner growth in an integrative & balanced way.

Each session includes:

  • A knowledge piece about a particular developmental level
  • How to identify it within yourself
  • Practising mindfulness-meditation to process, integrate & transcend this aspect of self  

What is mindfulness meditation?

“Mindfulness meditation is a form of body-mind training that has been shown to dramatically reduce stress, increase feeling of calm, relaxation & harmony; decrease feelings of anxiety & depression; reduce the discomfort of pain; lower blood pressure; increase learning capacity, IQ & creativity; & awaken higher states of consciousness, sometimes called the father reaches of human nature. It is like a steroid for human activities in general, from the ordinary mundane to the enlightened spiritual. This powerful practice goes back at least 2,500 years, & humanity has continued to use it simple because it works” – Ken Wilber, Integral Meditation page 5 (Summary of research & sources)

And developmental psychology?

DP is an aspect of psychology that observes how human beings develop or grow through various stages as they mature. This happens not just during childhood, but (ideally) continues thru-out our lives, as we garner life experience and use it to progress in our perspective-taking, our wisdom, insight, and capacity to care. There has been research by many psychologists in this field ( Eg: Claire Graves, Don Beck, Jane Loevinger, Susanne Cook-Greuter & Ken Wilber), but, put together they outline a universal progress of 6-8 developmental stages that constitute an ‘inner map’ of human potential that we can use as a guide to progressive inner growth.

This course gives you 8-9 practices that you can use to both stimulate and track your own experiential journey through these maps of consciousness.
