STAGES International charts the levels of perspective development, spanning the first-person perspective of an infant through adulthood, highlighting what each level means in our day-to-day lives.

Using the STAGES model allows us to determine our stage of perspective development, understand what it means, and develop it over time. We work with coaches, therapists, academics, business leaders and innovators, educators, and other thought leaders interested in charting the cutting edges of human possibility.

Love, Relationship, & Spirituality:

Learn the Ways that Love Grows Up

with Kim Barta, MA

Wednesday, July 15
12:00 p.m. US Mountain Time

We give love, we receive love, we share love. Yet love, like so many other areas of human expression, is being studied and better understood. In this talk with Kim, he’ll walk us through the 16 distinct patterns known about love, and how they evolve with our own development.

It’s pretty obvious that the love we might feel for a grade school crush is very different from the mature love of a long-term partnership, the love of a parent for a child, or even the love one has for all sentient beings. Our patterns of love evolve as we develop and mature.

By understanding the evolution of our love patterns and the variety of styles that love can be shared, we can greatly enhance our relationships, no matter if that love is expressed physically, personally, spiritually, or some combination of those. All can be expressed in a variety of styles.

Learn how to find the beloved in your life.

The Many Faces of Money

A Developmental Experience of Money

with Terri O’Fallon and Mira Megs Lanthrop

Wednesday, July 22
12:00 p.m. US Mountain Time

Money. Some of us seem to have mastered it, others manage it with great effort, and others still never seem to get the hang of it.

Join Terri and Mira as they discuss money through a developmental lens, including how our view of it can evolve as we evolve. While money has obvious concrete manifestations like gold and the currency we might have in our pockets, much of money these days exists primarily in digital code and in the channels of our own minds.

By understanding how our view of money can evolve, we can come to understand how we view money, what we can do to evolve our relationship with it, and what is made possible as that process happens.

Join Terri and Mira for an illuminating discussion and question and answer on the many faces of money.

Business Growth & Shadow :

Understanding Organizational Health

with Kim Barta and Terri O’Fallon

Wednesday, July 29
12:00 p.m. US Mountain Time

Organizational shadow can reduce efficiency, effectiveness, and even tear apart an entire organization.

Whether for-profit, not-for-profit, or NGO, the bad news is shadow creeps into any and all organizational gatherings. The good news is it can be minded, and the shadow discovered and dissolved in the service of growth and conscious communication that increases efficiencies and employee satisfaction.

Business leaders spend time, money, and effort on new ideas and fostering growth, but while you are feeding one part of our organization, the other part may be deteriorating and undermining all the great work that’s happening, like building one half of a home while tearing the other half down.

Terri and Kim will give you a taste of the fascinating world of organizational shadow, how it feels when it is occurring, how to identify it, and what can be done to heal it.

States & STAGES:

Developmental Confusions

with Terri O’Fallon

Wednesday, August 5
12:00 p.m. US Mountain Time

How do we “grow up” into more and more complex ways of viewing the world?

In this session, Terri will share with us some of her latest work on the interpenetration of States and Stages. There are three areas to focus on as we move through each stage:

  1. States are necessary but not sufficient for a shift to the next stage.
  2. Confusions occur at some point in every stage. Once the confusions are cleared up, one reaches the full maturity of the stage.
  3. We need to turn the stage back on itself In order to mature to the next state which ushers in the entry to the new stage (step one above).

We all grow up through developmental stages throughout our lives but most of us don’t realize that at each stage we encounter at least one distinctive confusion. In order to move to the next stage, we have to stare that confusion in the face and untangle it.

Developmental confusions are only one of the three areas that help states and stages integrate at every developmental level from 1.0 infant to 6.5 Illumined.

In this cutting-edge talk, Terri will discuss:

  • How development progresses from infancy through the latest stages of development known to us
  • How do we recognize the confusion we are in?
  • What we can do to further our development
  • The implications of balancing our psychological development with our spiritual insight at each stage
  • Practices we can undertake to foster our own growth into and through the highest stages of development

The Summer Series features 90-minute explorations of a single topic, with a 30-minute, open Q&A for you to ask questions and interact with Terri and Kim.

About Terri & Kim

Terri O’Fallon, PhD is an Integral scholar whose research spans 40 years, including eleven research studies conducted in various colleges, public schools, and private research venues. Her most recent theory, and the culmination of a lifetime of work, is the STAGES model of human development. STAGES integrates several developmental models and is informed by Ken Wilber’s Integral Theory and Terri’s own research, to form a robust and predictive map that is being used by numerous scholars, practitioners, and leaders throughout the world.

Terri’s theory and research interests are founded in a passionate practice of auspicious curiosity, learning, and marinating in life. Teaching has been a theme throughout Terri’s life. Beginning as a preschool and first-grade teacher, she has taught every grade, including special education and the gifted. She has held the role of elementary school principal and public school-district superintendent and taught in seven colleges and universities, with over fifty years experience in teaching from pre-kindergarten through post-doctorate studies.

Her interest in life span development naturally arose from her experience in the field of education. She has a PhD in Integral Studies with a concentration in Learning and Change in Human Systems, and masters degrees in Spiritual Direction and Special Education. These embodied experiences inform her primary theory, research, and teaching theme: growing up is waking up throughout the lifespan.

Ordinariness has been the trajectory of Terri’s life. She is the eldest of seven siblings, parent of two adult children, and grandparent of two granddaughters. Steeped in philosophy, research, teaching, and a myriad of spiritual practices, her path continues to bring her solidly home to the practical living, breathing appreciation of the simple things in life.

We wake up every morning. We grow up, quite naturally. We live through joys and sorrows, and face our family, friends, and neighbors every day. We grow old and watch our life approach its end as we apprehend the birth of our grandchildren. With the gifts of so many experiences, the highs and lows of being, what seems to always remain, is what we were advised to value from birth: listening, gratitude, compassion, love, forgiveness, generosity, light-heartedness—lifelong lessons that never seem to end.

Kim Barta, MA is an internationally-recognized licensed psychotherapist, coach, spiritual guide, and speaker. His work is founded in an experiential practice that works with many different kinds of cultures and challenges, from severe mental illness and trauma to supporting the fullest expression of one’s humanity. Kim’s expertise now includes integrating developmental theory with the day-to-day work of being an active therapist and healer.

Kim graduated with a BA in Cultural Anthropology from the University of Montana in 1984. He pursued a masters in an interdisciplinary program that combined psychology, social work, counseling, and sociology for a broad perspective for healing. He lived with a Native American shaman and did his masters thesis in shamanism and modern psychotherapy.

After developing and implementing a successful training program in the construction industry for people suffering from severe mental illness such as bipolar, schizophrenia, and Axis 2 Disorders, Kim pursued outdoor leadership, becoming an instructor with the international Outward Bound schools. Kim went on to develop a mental health treatment program for children and youth that was adopted by three hospitals in Montana. In 1992, Kim and his wife, Dr. Katie Carter ND, co-founded and continue managing a mind/body healing arts clinic in Polson, Montana, nestled beneath the high Mission Mountains on the shore of Flathead Lake, in the Flathead Indian nation.

Ever seeking better ways of healing in the life of self, other, families and children, Kim has developed several successful new forms of therapy that lead to deep and rapid healing. These therapies have proven themselves effective with a wide range of issues, including: depression, anxiety, PTSD, anger, addiction, chronic pain, physical illnesses and weight loss and personal growth. People utilize his psychology/coaching/spiritual guidance practice, on a global level.

Currently, Kim has joined his sister, Dr. Terri O’Fallon, to present workshops and trainings on STAGES, a new model of human development developed by Dr. O’Fallon. Kim’s long history of working with such a wide variety of clients has made his expertise invaluable. He brings nuance and direct application into the STAGES model, allowing it to be integrated into the dynamic and fluid world of psychotherapy and coaching.
