Alternative Models to Perceptual Change: An Introduction to the Intriguing World of Spiral Dynamics with Special Guest M.A. Carrano

The next inspiring soul to intuitively walk into the sacred space of Quantum Mindfulness Radio is the intriguing, passionate, and highly spirited M.A. Carrano, an experimental philosopher and a systems consultant living and working out of Yale-New Haven, Connecticut.

The topic of main focus for tonight's show will surround the mystery and interesting World of Spiral Dynamics. Spiral Dynamics is a dynamic model of human development and a developmental model of memes carrying systems - such as a social network, society or company - introduced in the 1996 book Spiral Dynamics by Don Beck and Chris Cowan. The book was based on the 1970s theories of psychologist Clare W. Graves. Spiral Dynamics argues that human nature is not fixed: humans are able, when forced by life conditions, to adapt to their environment by constructing new, more complex, conceptual models of the world that allow them to handle the new problems.Each new model transcends and includes all previous models. According to Beck and Cowan, these conceptual models are organized around so-called vmemes (pronounced "v memes"): systems of core values or collective intelligences applicable to both individuals and entire cultures.

In spiral dynamics, the term vmeme refers to a core value system acting as an organizing principle, which expresses itself through memes (self-propagating ideas, habits, or cultural practices). The superscript letter v indicates these are not basic memes but value systems which include them. The colors act as reminders for the life conditions and mind capacities of each system and alternate between cool and warm colors as a part of the model.Within the model, individuals and cultures do not fall clearly in any single category (color). Each person/culture embodies a mixture of the value patterns, with varying degrees of intensity in each. Spiral Dynamics claims not to be a linear or hierarchical model.

According to Spiral Dynamics, there are infinite stages of progress and regression over time, dependent upon the life circumstances of the person or culture, which are constantly in flux. Attaining higher stages of development is not synonymous with attaining a "better" or "more correct" values system. All stages co-exist in both healthy and unhealthy states, meaning any stage of development can lead to undesirable outcomes with respect to the health of the human and social environment.

As the Senior Intelligence Analyst and Vice President of Avatar Paradigms, a consulting agency whose integral mission is to bring the message of holism back into our consciousness, synergy and conscious evolution into our homes, and heightened awareness to our universities and corporate board rooms throughout the United States, M.A. Carrano brings to the environmental landscape a new approach to perceptual change - a change that the world so desperately needs and requires. As a former U.S. Congressional candidate and author of his book, Asleep in the Helix: Survival & the Science of Self-Realization, at present Carrano resides as the sitting Chair of Philosophy for The Libertarian Party of Connecticut as well as an acting representative of the Global Association of Systems Thinkers. Within this revealing and revolutionary broadcast of Quantum Mindfulness Radio, M.A. Carrano brings forth, for the very first time to the public eye, a discovery that will rock you off of your Consciousness.

Show Host

The initial intention of this one-hour online radio talk show was meant to focus and embrace upon the essence of Quantum Mindfulness, a term that I have coined as a state of awareness that can be utilized as the tools, the shielding, and the armor of resilience - where the theoretical constructs and to where the most profound and amazing of findings discovered by the variable schools of Quantum Theory are integrated with Heart-Centered Research Based Science, NLP, DBT, Perceptual Modification, and in Active Participative Knowing. But as I began to learn from the basic elements of the book that I had just recently published, The Book of Positive Light: Remembrance of the Heart, and as I began to slowly re-read the inspiration of its spiritually channeled pages, I began to evolve in Spirit through an understanding of Self. And as I began to evolve, the talk show had also gradually evolved the same in heightening awareness and in potentiality as it was being observed at a much broadened sense of how I had viewed my internal environment.

As a Registered Nurse, I have utilized many elements of this philosophy and approach and along with the many other learned experiences that I have acquired along this journey from the many spirited and wisdom-filled souls that I have encountered from countless numbers of fascinating conversations. And I have done so, within my practice, in coordination with the application of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy in 1:1 Patient Interventional Therapy and in Group Therapy Sessions on several Psychiatry Units throughout my integrative and holistic career as a nurse. This, alone, has greatly allowed for me to, not only heal myself in many ways, but it has also allowed for me to assist my clients along the road to recovery from addiction, an improved understanding to perceptual modification, the utilization of heightened forms of spiritual and emotional coping from anxiety, stress, and depression, resilience-building techniques, self-empowerment, heart-centered consciousness and coherence, and in initiating the change agent process to Unity Consciousness and Global Awareness. On the other hand, as a newly acclaimed public speaker, I have also presented my findings from the miraculous and inspiring effectiveness of this particular approach collaboratively with my own life experiences throughout several speaking events in Northeastern Ohio.

Now, as furthered evolution has enveloped the content matter of this show to other deepening layers of multi-dimensionality, the theme of this one hour broadcast, additionally, lies within the intention to integrating the many facets of the human experience with interviews and of personal accounts explained by some of the most compelling and of inspirational guests invited to the show - of motivational speakers, experts, song writers, singers, musicians, authors, actors and actresses, and researchers. Together, in conversation, the limitless menu of topics for discussion can consist of subject matter drawn from Quantum Theory, Integrative Medicine, Alchemy, the meta-physical, the unexplained and miraculous, the philosophical, the synchronistic, the intriguing nature of variabled belief systems, spirituality, the esoteric, the paranormal, the Ancients, ancient civilizations, Sacred Geometry, the Mystery Schools, and in the many other facets of the explored, the subjective, and uncharted realms of the human experience. This can all be covered from one inspiring show to the very next whilst leaving the dedicated listener intrigued with wonder, self-empowerment, limitlessness, and bliss.
