Learning and change in human systems has been a life-long pursuit for Terri O’Fallon PhD. She is a principal of Pacific Integral, and Developmental Life Designs, a leader on the frontier of transformational change in organizations and individuals. She has been teaching for over 50 years and researching for over 40 years.
Terri Began her career teaching elementary children, and later, developmentally disabled adults. She was an elementary school principal, school superintendent, and a graduate level instructor in several colleges and universities.
Her interests presently lie in the living experiments of evolutionary human systems, and human levels of development. Currently Terri teaches about the STAGES model that is derived from the Loevinger Lineage and the Integral Frame. Her research in this area is ongoing and an evolutionary effort.
Ordinariness continues to bring her home to the practical living, breathing appreciation of the simple things in life. We wake up every morning. We grow up, quite naturally. We live through joys and sorrows. We grow old. What remains is listening, gratitude, compassion, love, forgiveness, and generosity—lifelong lessons that never seem to end.
Integral spirituality is the experience of a Sacred, embodied, evolutionary “now”, speaking through us in multiple voices. It incarnates all facets of our lives, inviting past and future into one moment. Integral spiritual practice, then, seems to be a consummate, persistent inquiry of many shades and shadows extending throughout life.
