Structure Stages of Consciousness with Daniela Bomatter
As Andrew is unavailable for this bi-weekly teaching, Daniela Bomatter is giving an in-depth talk on the Structure Stages of Consciousness. Deepening our understanding of these structures is an important part of our spiritual practice at Manifest Nirvana.
We live in an extremely complex and seemingly incomprehensible world, and it is becoming more and more demanding to make sense of what is happening.
The diversity of opinions and values that we are faced with can seem totally overwhelming, and in this raging storm of information and disinformation we can struggle to preserve our autonomy and rationality. It is a challenge to stand our ground in a sane and healthy way, without distancing ourselves from others and feeling disconnected.
In our journey of sense-making, there are some metaphysical, philosophical and practical approaches that can help enormously. Andrew Cohen’s Evolutionary Enlightenment teaching, Ken Wilber’s Integral project, and the Spiral Dynamics theory of human development – all these offer deep insight into the underlying systems and structures that inform human thought and action.
In creating Manifest Nirvana, our ambitious aim has been to synthesise these approaches into a cohesive whole:
- Access to higher states of consciousness – what we refer to as waking up.
- A deep understanding of the structure stages of consciousness – or growing up.
- Tools that will help to identify shadow material in ourselves – cleaning up.
Finally, and perhaps most importantly, we want to bring all this together in such a way that we can actually show up in the world – as fully integrated, conscious and inspired human beings.
Wilber’s Integral theory proposes that the reality we experience can be described, structured or looked at in many different ways. There are different lenses through which we can gaze, and inquire into deeper aspects of reality, and of ourselves. His work describes Quadrants, Levels, Types, Lines, States and Stages.
In this talk we will focus on what Wilber calls the left-hand quadrants – the interiority of the “I” and the “We”. These are the structures of consciousness, as they show up both in ourselves and in culture at large.
Daniela will take you on an experiential journey through each of these structure stages of consciousness, and guide you through the eight distinct stages as described in Spiral Dynamics and Integral Theory. Afterwards there will be plenty of time for questions and answers.
This talk is for people who are not yet familiar with the subject, as well as those who want to deepen their understanding.
Daniela is very much looking forward to taking this journey with you, and if you have any questions please don't hesitate to email her at any time.
