Discover Spiral Dynamics
Spiral Dynamics has its origins in a theory developed by Dr. Graves. He was a professor of psychology and the founder of the emergent cyclical theory of adult human development. In simple terms; his theory describes how human psychology has evolved over thousands of years.
For example, our basic survival colours, such as Beige and Purple, helped us in our day to day life when we lived in tribes. But then the world started to change. Empires and civilizations were built. These developments led to new problems and new ways of thinking.
In this spiral each level builds on the understanding of the levels below. Each level signifies a new insight and perspective of looking at the world.
Our first value system is beige, the colour of survival. Our basic need and focus was to eat, drink and sleep. Automatic instincts and our sense of survival were guiding us in our choices.
The second value focuses on safety by living in a clan. This allowed us to form bonds, cooperate and prosper. Loyalty to the community and collective values became important.
By living in a clan something changed within us. Our free will and ego awakened. We wanted more control and power. This gave us the determination and willpower to chase and conquer.
Because of the red chaos we developed the need for structure and order. Our search for meaning and stability created a new civilization with rules, religion and guidelines for righteous living.
In a new capitalistic world, an abundance of opportunities allowed us to obtain independence and autonomy. Our focus switched to a need for personal results and material success.
The next value system is the realization that real happiness is not found in material abundance and success. This leads to our need for connection and peace, by creating more harmony in our lives.
In the last 50 years the world is changing rapidly. This means we constantly have to adapt to the situation with creative solutions and flexibility, while dealing with surprises and uncertainties.
The final colour is turquoise, which is the need to seek wholeness with the universe. With a holistic worldview, we can engage our spiritual intelligence to live a purposeful life.
