In the Beginning…
Still fresh in my mind is a story from my youth, one often told by both teachers and clerics to dramatize the importance of people in whatever kind of world we were able to imagine. A youngster was given a puzzle that had a picture of the earth on one side and was asked to put it together as quickly as possible. The teacher was astounded that …

Regardless of your own political views, memetic codes, or location on the intensity spectrum (from flame thrower to pragmatic) you must be both concerned and confused as to the current issues in Washington DC. While the words “stalemate, “crazy,” “polarized and soaked with acrimony,” define the condition, it appears the huge gaps in our society continue to grow and expand. The fiercely fought presidential campaign has not abated one bit. President Obama’s campaign …
Lincoln and Polarization
Don E. Beck
No more shall the war-cry sever;
Or the winding river turn red;
We shall bury our anger;
As we cover the graves of our dead.
Love and tears for the Blue;
Tears and love for the Gray.
It will always be difficult for me to separate the man from the myth, the gladiator from the visionary, and the playful jokester from the serious liberator. As is often the …

“Spiral Dynamics Integral is one of he first integral psychologies now available and, as presented by Don Beck, I give it my highest recommendation.

11th Annual SDi Confab
by Dr. Don Beck
This will be the first report on the 11th Annual Confab event held at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Grapevine. Texas. The theme this year dealt with the “Bio” in the Gravesian “Bio-Psycho-Social” framework, a focus that puts Spiral Dynamics at the forefront of any of the developmental/evolutionary models of human emergence, and is one of the reasons I adopted his work among 42 other models …
The following is an amalgam of two email messages from Dr. Don Beck.
Thanks, Russ. Looking forward to Elza’s article. This is one talented, bright, and courageous woman. Amazing that What is Enlightenment? keeps looking for “Integral Women” when there are many right in front of their noses, especially those like Elza. It is one thing to write nice articles and work in safe environments, but another thing to go into harm’s way with a difficult …
