Spiral Conversations

“Spiral Conversations” is an ongoing group that practices viewing issues in today’s world from a Spiral Dynamics Tier 2 perspective. We realize that our first tendency is to judge others. So we’ll give our ego selves a chance to voice our opinions, then we’ll center ourselves and do an integral review, to understand the issue from a Tier 2 perspective. Through dynamic interaction and group discussion, you will also apply the concept of Spiral Dynamics to your personal evolutionary journey, and explore the personal values and stages we grow through to mature into 2nd Tier practice. Every 1st and 3rd Thursday, 7 pm ET (4 pm Pacific) Join us without payment for the first two meetings. Just write Rev Pat at newvistaunity@gmail.com Subscribe for $19.99 monthly to this lively group for as long as you’d like.
