A personal inquiry into psycho-spiritual development
Hurley, Padraic
An incisive recognition of the intimate link between our present wicked global problems and consciousness, in particular the self induced nature of such, pervades the backdrop of this inquiry. However consciousness growth is far from a defined linear process and I set out to inquire in this study, into what I consider to be a potential high leverage nodal point, within a level/line framing of the issue. I explore the unfolding of the spiritual line of development within Integral Theory’s AQAL matrix, beyond its presently perceived, in many respects seeming arrested nature in contemporary culture. I track and trace the spiritual line through empirically based structure-stages and state-stages of development and its potential occlusions in shadow, to set the foundation for a further empirical dimension of the research. Here I set out to measure through an integral lens interpretation of a rigorously designed and validated Spiritual Intelligence SQ21 assessment tool, an integral psycho-spiritual developmental profile, or the IPSD configurations of 20 research participants, with a view to creating a meaningful container for further inquiry into IPSD.
