Hugh & Kaye Martin

Ken Wilber's 'felt body,' 'bodyself,' 'types,' 'functional invariants,' and 'horizontal translation.'[1] This installment shows how these abstruse and esoteric concepts square with the Martin's broader and more cohesive ADAPT Model.

  • Arenas in the Realm of the Body. Body-oriented growth practices: Homeopathy, chiropractic, acupuncture, Reichian therapy, yoga, etc. How each of the seven Chakras is manifested in various bodily systems and conditions.
  • Enneagram Types -- How They Grow. How each of the nine Enneagram Types can become healthier by growing from Fixated to Evolved.
  • The Functional Constituents of Self. The eleven fundamental components of human nature that enable us to function and grow as human beings.
  • Horizontal Growth. Normally, we think of Growth as Vertical -- that is, growing upwards from Stage to Stage. However, Growth can also be Horizontal -- i.e., growing within a Stage. We present two forms of such Growth:
    • Improvement & Translation. We improve on abilities we acquire at a particular Stage. Then we translate those abilities to other related skills.
