orders of consciousness Assessments

If you’re new to the Robert Kegan’s ideas, especially his orders of consciousness concepts, simply realizing that though you might not have ever known you have your own Order of Consciousness is a major accomplishment. However, once you realize that you have an order of consciousness, figuring out what this means and what to do about it raises some tough questions. For anyone, plumbing the depths of our own unconscious mind is extraordinarily difficult. In fact, it’s almost impossible to do without some assistance. As luck would have it, there are a few people who've begun to figure out what we can do to see around the corners of our minds in order to get some understanding of the inner dynamics of brain/mind. If you’re interested in learning more about how they're starting to do this, read some of the assessment papers found below.
