Model workshop 2009-2014
Some attempts to decid the spirituality in general, and contemporary spirituality in particular (click on the pictures and they will be bigger!). This figure was a variation of the yinyang symbol. The most innovative was probably the small "monads", how they were called and related to each other. They could be worth building on, I think: This one was an attempt to see how the three basic notions of new age/newness, as I saw it, related to each other. That is, there was spirituality that encompassed one, two or all (reincarnation, karma, and the idea of the individual's development towards emotional and cognitive perfection). I called it the FUKAR model, and a spirituality that encompassed all notions was called "Fukaric spirituality": Here is a text with a little deepening of how the thoughts went. And another: Here's another sketch of how different contemporary spiritualities might relate to each other, overlaps: A similar one. Was it possible to catch something in common, overlapping, that deserved to have its own name. I thought so, and tried for a while to call it "NA": This image does not contain so many details, it is more of an illustration. But of something very central and important. Inspired by James Fowler and his Faith Development Theory, the concept of "a second naïvité": The figure I devoted the most thought to, was this one. "Adult spirituality chart", with several working names: It has its own thread HERE.
