Introducing Terri and Kim and the STAGES Model
In this video interview with author and developmental coach, Rob McNamara, Terri O’Fallon and Kim Barta talk about the importance of development, the unique aspects of the STAGES model, how STAGES can be applied by individuals, and highlights of their upcoming online course, Shadow into Soul.
About the Course
Shadow into Soul: Unfolding the Living Map of Life is a course in learning to apply STAGES to your life. It is both a map and a set of practices. The map reveals how your life has unfolded into the present and provides a glimpse into the next steps of your consciousness development. The practices are the ways you apply the model. Taught by Terri O’Fallon Ph.D. and Kim Barta MA, this course is geared toward individuals interested in their own personal and spiritual development. This course includes:
- 8 2-hour sessions
- 1 2-hour open Q&A call one month after course ends
- Video and audio recordings for online viewing and downloading
- Exercises to practice between course sessions
- Private Facebook group
In this course, we’ll work a lot with Shadow and Soul. Shadow refers to the unconscious parts of ourselves that we can’t see clearly—or at all, but whose energies nevertheless flow into our lives, often with painful consequences. Shadow often arises out of early experiences which map themselves onto our present day behavior. We know we want to alter our behavior and yet these shadow issues occur over and over again. We don’t know where to begin.
Soul, the way we use the term, refers to the higher potential that resides in us a profound urge to evolve that keeps us moving forward. It often pushes against our shadow material and causes discomfort in our lives. In the discomfort, you sense that a better “me” wants to emerge, but you’re not sure how to make it happen.
These two dimensions—Shadow and Soul—are a way to frame our development in a way that takes us from the unresolved, unintegrated issues of early childhood through the level of development that each of us is capable of. But STAGES isn’t about fixing ourselves because from the perspective of STAGES nothing is really broken. The discomfort of our life issues is life itself, drawing our attention to the parts of ourselves that need our conscious care and attention.
Through the eight sessions of the course, Terri and Kim will lead participants through the process of applying the model to your life to help reveal more clearly how you arrived at where you are today. It will help you identify, resolve and heal your personal shadow issues. You will identify your developmental strengths and learn how to enhance them for healing and you will identify locate your weaknesses and learn how to strengthen the parts of yourself that will heal that early trauma. The course is scheduled to begin April 19th.
