Sensitivity through Precision

Beta Scoring Training for the Model of Homeostatic Hierarchical Integration through Communicative Action

In the many years I have spent with adult development I have trained myself using several methods and used different models to get some accuracy in recognizing where people are at developmentally. However, I recognized that models are based on assumptions which can differ quite a bit. No model uses exactly the same parameters and the same methods to assign a stage. When I recognized this it was time to develop a scoring method that can be as accurate as the most prominent models of cognitive development used by Harvard psychologists while simultaneously making sense of all these differences and seeming contingencies in how developmental models are constructed and aligned with each other.

Together with the New Human University I now offer a beta program for learning to use this model to discern people’s level of development within multiple lines through a sentence completion test and use the sophisticated theory behind the assessment method to improve your communicative skills.

Train for Precise Scoring and Sensitive Communication

Homeostatic Hierarchical Integration through Communicative Action

When you learn how to assess development using the Model of Homeostatic Hierarchical Integration, you will be able to gain insight into a very accurate and regular scoring metric that is well aligned with about a dozen other models like Lawrence Kohlberg’s Psychology of Moral Development, Robert Kegan’s ideas of the Evolving Self as well as the most widely used conceptions of diagnosis of and intervention into stage development including the Ego-Development Theory by Jane Loevinger and Susanne Cook-Greuter and the theory of Dynamic Skills developed by the Harvard Professor Kurt Fischer.

The  model you are going to trained with includes sixteen stages but we are going to focus mainly on those comparable to other existing models, to base your later work on an intersubjective validity claim.

Boost the Fullness of Perception and Containment within Universals

Basic Components of the Scoring Training via Homeostatic Hierarchical Integration

The Model of Homeostatic Hierarchical Integration through Communicative Action has multiple dimensions to it. Basically it is an attempt for a deep unitive perception that includes anything beyond our awareness that is shaping our perceptions, thoughts, souls and spirit together with the uniqueness of the paths each and any person enacts through their being, essence, identity and consciousness. However, I am aware that we always end up in particularities and a tiny fraction of the total painting as much as we are deeply connected to and, in difference, seamlessly united with its wholeness, as this sliver through which we thematise and try to recreate the by itself envisioned self-perfection. Within this deep paradox, which we are going to unfold together, four themes are of primary importance to boost your perception and help your containment within the blissful and seemingly all encompassing compassion of the universals that are going to guide your scoring practice:

  • Recognition of the conscious field that is self-thematized within the human search for equilibrium through stage growth as well as social integration that is spanning and enabling all four: being, essence, identity and consciousness
  • Analysis of repeating and iterating universal grammars which have been derived from a comprehension of Indo-European as well as indigenous languages and point to culturally independent lexico-textual webs of orders, stages, phases and transitions of human development based on verified linguistic research
  • Assignment of scoring categories and themes to developmental assessments carved out of the richness of multiple models and the archeological analysis of most likely more than a thousand books classified by their authors‘ most probable developmental center of gravity
  • Fine tuning your perception towards the seeming objects apprehended by your clients and sculpturing a set of feedback methods that spring from your unique background to help you meet clients not only from a model but from yourself

Spark the Spirit of Scientific Community

Prerequisites for Participation in the Scoring Training via Homeostatic Hierarchical Integration

For this beta program there are seven vacancies left. Five seats are already reserved for students of the New Human University and the maximum number of participants is twelve. To join the scoring training it would be helpful to fulfill the following criteria, whereas a willingness to commit to the schedule and scoring exercises are imperative for a successful examination:

  • Academic degree and experience with scientific work as well as scientific ethos – including a willingness to collaboratively learn, teach and practice for the greater good as much as openness to intersubjective comparison and self-questioning;
  • People assessed at the Autonomous, Construct-Aware or a later stage who are already capable to see stages and thus likely to learn scoring well;
  • People who want to challenge their growth at late Achiever or Pluralist and would accept that they might have a hard time passing the final exam, however, get a lasting experience that gains value with their own development;
  • Curiosity for operationalizing complexity and restructuring your understanding of the interplay between consciousness, personality and language;
  • Prior experience with models of human development through seminaries or self study;
  • Advanced Englisch language skills or upper intermediate if your first language is German.

Engage into Blended Online Learning

Main Components of the Scoring Training via Homeostatic Hierarchical Integration

The scoring training will start in February 2021 and in its core will take 12 months. We will include one month of vacation in August 2021. Thus, the largest part of the program is going to end in March 2022. The core program provides you with training and examination for the stage spectrum between 2.4 Conformist Amber and 4.1 Consensus-Aware Indigo or Unitive; a spectrum I prioritized because it is both, the range wherein the majority of western adult population lives and because we work on a dissertation project at the New Human Research and Development Institute for which we need to create interrater reliability.

After the core program there are planned to be three additional modules that give insight into assessing childhood development, the difference between assessing with a sentence completion test and assessing the complexity of concepts as well as  recognizing bio-psycho-social dynamics. For students at later stages of development a fourth module will introduce into the nuances of the four latest stages of fourthness from 4.1 Consensus Aware Indigo to 4.4 Co-Gnostic Clear Light classically known as Illumined Mind, Intuitive Mind, Overmind and Supermind.

Some Structural Features of the Scoring Training:
  1. You get two free developmental assessments plus personal developmental feedback and debrief with an approximate market worth of more than a 1000$;
  2. Two main group calls per month that will be recorded including 2.5 hours of introduction into theory, scoring practice and writing feedback and another 1.5 hours to reflect on your questions arising during the scoring practice and reading;
  3. Optional 30 minute calls in the weeks without main group calls for deepening the experience of our community and tapping into the qualities of the respective theme or stage on the schedule;
  4. Weekly scoring exercises which motivate you to score eight protocols, 24 sentence completions each, per month to create scoring routine and sense into real people’s experience through their written statements;
  5. Online learning environment to provide learning material and collectively discuss questions about theory and scoring practice and give you support as promptly as possible;
  6. Stimulus to pair up and reciprocally support you with your scoring practice and understanding and embodiment of the theory through conversation;
  7. Regular reading including detailed stage descriptions for each of the 16 stages. It will be based on early and late stage for childhood and late stage development up to the 4.3 Cosmotheantric Ultraviolet stage and quarters for those that are most relevant for adult developmental coaching;
  8. Sensitization for most likely indicators of stage transitions or crises at a certain stage including psychological concepts at each stage for generating feedback;
  9. Monthly updated manual with exemplary sentence stems and completions to support your scoring practice and find scoring categories and themes for developmental feedback;
  10. Personal interview to find concepts that fit your background and preferences for working with development;
  11. Dr. Michael Cotton and me will work to integrate Source Code Meditation and the Nine Summits of Transformation in the scoring training for participants from the New Human University.

Since this is a beta program, changes might be made in the course of the program, but I completely commit to continuous uninterrupted training and learning throughout the whole process.

Benefits the Scoring Training via Homeostatic Hierarchical Integration Provides

Embodied Knowledge for Precise Discernment

Homeostatic Hierarchical Integration

  • Insight into a state-of-the-art developmental model that has both explanations about how development works and scoring criteria to target mechanisms of growth or wholeness to a client;
  • Comprehension of the most complete stage trajectory yet found and the seemingly underlying universal structures, including four tiers, 16 stages, with four sub-phases each as well as transition steps in-between stages;
  • Overview of a spectrum that starts in early childhood while reaching up to the seemingly mystic heights of what is known as Clear Light and Supermind by Ken Wilber and Sri Aurobindo;
  • Learnings that provide you with the capability to assess development up to your own developmental limitations. This means approximately one stage ahead of your current center of gravity with a guarantee to expand your scoring range with your own growth and development;
  • Examination that by mastery provides you with the license to offer developmental scoring and feedback services to clients for the spectrum of stages you were trained at;
  • Guarantee by myself to secure the ethical integrity in the use of my model, to work on regular updates of scoring manuals and teaching material as well as thorough scientific efforts, including peer reviewed publications and dissertation projects that increase the credibility and public visibility of the Model of Homeostatic Hierarchical Integration through Communicative Action which you are trained with;
  • Earnings of 350$ per assessment which is the normal price for comparable assessments within the US market.

Skillful Means for Sensitivity in Discourse

Communicative Action

  • Understanding of the unity across the difference of map and territory that any developmental model creates as well as a deep comparative comprehension of relevant topics in the fields of a psychology, a neuroscience and a sociology of human development;
  • Improvement of your hermeneutical abilities that enable you to see through the discoursive and constructed aspects of what a stage is and gain freedom for yourself and your clients;
  • Faithfulness in navigating through the universals that are enamored with the unique semantic-syntactic soul expressions through which individuals and societies thematise themselves;
  • Accuracy when it comes to both targeting developmental feedback towards your clients‘ leading edge or blockages and learning to talk with people at their specific level of development so that improved mutual understanding can be achieved;
  • Flourishing of compassion for the potentials and restrictions of understanding within others and yourself and thus of a life that is more responsive to the needs and desires you see within yourself and others;
  • Continuance of your own growth and development through discursively and constructively applying these models to yourself as well as by fitting the Model of Homeostatic Hierarchical Integration through Communicative Action to your own unique story;
  • Guarantee by myself that I will thoroughly work on refining the available material on each developmental stage and expanding our perspective on their multiple themes, interest and self-expressions through continuous archeological efforts;
  • Earnings of up to 500$ per developmental feedback, which is a normal price within the US market.

I hold a master’s degree in Theological Anthropology and Value Orientation in Business and Education. Over the years I have specialized in the philosophy, psychology, measurement, neuroanatomy, and social sciences of adult development. With completion of the Model of Homeostatic Hierarchical Integration through Communicative Action more than ten years of thorough thought and research came to fruition in a framework that can both explain and measure human development. The model is currently applied at the New Human University and the New Human Research and Development Institute as well as in several other contexts like the Integral Art Lab.

I currently mentor one ongoing Ph.D. project and one in the works both of which integrate parts of Homeostatic Hierarchical Integration. Additionally, together with the team of the Heilort in Bad Belzig Germany we are looking forward to applying my model in a dissertation that focuses on the intersection of organizational learning and developmental measurement. Currently there is one peer reviewed article published in the Integral Review April 2020, which explicates aspects of the universal grammar used for assessment throughout the scoring training.

Throughout the years  have developed and lead several adult, collaborative and online learning programs with a focus on individual and collective spiritual experience and understanding of complex perspectives. I have been involved with Buddhist meditation for more than a decade. However, consider myself as an atheistic mystic in the tradition of the Christian church fathers and a Kantian transcendentalism as developed by Karl Rahner. Too, I am a husband and father of a baby girl.
