This Website’s “Journey” Theme
This website is organized in a systematic way to help you access information about individuals, couples and families in a systematic way. With each section, we include introductory information about that particular microsystem, a Self-Quiz to help you better understand the developmental stages/processes of each system, and resources to provide more information and help for those seeking to live a more authentic life. The resources consist of blogs, podcasts, interviews, and books that help you better understand each system’s unique problems and provide you with helpful solutions. The sections below can help you decide where to start on this website.
The“The Journey Toward an Authentic Self” section helps you better understand how live from your True Self, how you can stagnate, and ways to live a more authentic life.
The “The Journey Toward an Authentic Couple” section provides you with information we gathered on the developmental stages of couple relationships, including where and how they get stuck in their evolution, the ways that we have created to intervene successfully to facilitate moving forward in your evolution as an authentic couple.
“The Journey Towards an Authentic Family” section contains resources from our family systems research and development. It contains a summary of our research on how families get stuck in their evolution, some interventions we have created, and suggestions that you might use, and what we have learned from working with families.
We hope that reading these three sections of this website will help you gain a deeper understanding of what fosters and inhibits the evolution of these microsystems. We encourage you to think about serving as a “change agent” inside these smaller systems, and linking with others who are committed to this important work.
The MICRO System Focus of This Website
On this website, we share our work related to the development of three microsystems: individuals, couples and families. This material comes from our careful review of the research on developmental psychology; our own personal work, and from working directly with individuals, couples, and families. We have had unique opportunities to work with thousands of people around the world that helped us understand the universal principles of human development. From this heuristic research, we learned how to create heart-centered developmental processes and protocols to help people evolve.
What Causes Microsystems To Get Stuck
Our heuristic research has repeatedly confirmed that unresolved conflicts anchored in unhealed developmental traumas causes people to close their hearts. This takes them out of resonance with other humans and the cosmos, and stops the process of LOVEvolution. We believe that unrecognized and unhealed childhood traumas are the most common causes of stagnation in the evolution of human microsystems. Once we understood this, we developed and tested effective interventions to help individuals, couples and families resolve their conflicts and heal the developmental trauma associated with them. When you are able to heal these traumas, you are able to open your heart and come back into resonance with other people and the cosmos.
