Attachment, Basic Trust, and Sense of Self

Spiral Dynamics Intro
An introduction to an exciting, well-documented model of the ways humans value, behave, feel, think, and choose...as we evolve through stages...and suggesting some exciting possibilities about our becoming as a species.
The Importance of Understanding Developmental Stages
It is useful and empowering to know what is coming in our personal growth and development. We can anticipate, prepare, and have a sense of “where we fit” in the world, what meaning we can give to our lives, or where we are on the “map” of our lives. Without an awareness of how humans unfold developmentally, we are more inclined to live passively, not consciously, not deliberately, and to feel a greater sense of being a victim of life, rather than a creator of what we believe in, value, or desire for our lives.
