Spiral Dynamics® is a system that offers a view of the evolution of human consciousness over the last 100,000 years. As you will learn, as we become more aware of the spectrum of human values and worldviews, we are capable of developing deeper insight into the core issues that are responsible for conflict or cohesion among people, groups, and cultures. And with deeper understanding comes greater compassion and increased potential for civil discourse and resolution of conflict. This applies in both our personal and professional lives.
Spiral Dynamics® is an open-ended system, meaning that levels continue to emerge as humanity evolves. To date, seven levels of development have been clearly observed, studied, and documented. These levels can be expressed appropriately or inappropriately given the time, place, problems and circumstances we face. They apply to individuals, societies and corporate culture. The image of the spiral is used because each level includes the values, skills, and mechanisms of the levels below it while becoming more adaptive, complex, and expansive.
Pairing the Enneagram with a system that describes the stages and waves of the unfolding of human consciousness like Spiral Dynamics® means “you can start to see what a truly multidimensional psychology might look like.” (Ken Wilber).

Deborah Ooten, PhD
The intersection of personal experience, professional accomplishment, compassionate listening, innovative ideas and a direct change agent approach make Dr. Ooten an invaluable resource and sought after authority in conscious awareness. Dr. Ooten’s passion was rooted and realized in her experience with her family. Her desire to understand and help her own family and the achievement that followed led her to pursue a B.S. degree in Occupational Therapy (Body), followed by a Masters in Philosophy (Heart), and ultimately a PhD. in Psychology (Mind) – each one focusing on an integral aspect of each of us: Body, Heart and Mind.
Having effectively navigated the family dynamics through her experience and education, Dr. Ooten founded three successful companies, each focused on a unique audience: Dr. Ooten’s private practice, The Conscious Living Center for individuals, couples, families, and the School of Conscious Living and Conscious Dynamics LLC for businesses. Deborah is certified by Don Beck, PH.D in Spiral Dynamics® and certified in the Enneagram with the Narrative Tradition. She served on the board of the International Enneagram Association for 6 years.
