This is the second in a series about cognitive development and the work of Jean Piaget — and the huge benefits of understanding this developmental process. You might also want to read part one, where I described Jean Piaget’s first two levels of cognitive development (sensorimotor and preoperational). In this post, we’ll look at the third stage, concrete operational, the stage of most adults in the Western world.

I know the names of these stages can be confusing at first. And some might see the topic itself as dry and intellectual. Nothing could be further from the truth, however. I think that you’ll find this information to be extremely practical and pertinent to your life. You might even find yourself saying “Ah-HA!” as you have insights that allow you to better understand your life. Understanding how the developmental process works will accelerate your mental, emotional, and spiritual growth. It will expand your awareness of who you are, where you’ve been, and where you’re going (or at least, could be going).

And, it will very likely help you understand some of the reasons why certain areas of your life aren’t working as well as you’d like them to.

Let me begin by reminding you of a little-known (but very important) secret about life…

A very quick post answering a few of your questions about Genpo Roshi, enlightenment, emotions, how to get Big Mind DVDs (and which one to get), whether Genpo and I will teach in Europe, or on the East Coast, how to get audio of these posts, etc…

I received a comment from Charles in which he asks what the value would be to him if he attends the workshop Genpo Roshi and I are having in Los Angeles in February. But he asks something else more fundamental in his post. He wants to attend, he says, but money is an issue, as it is for many people. He has been using Holosync for a while, and has been through two of my three online courses, mostly with the goal of finding out how to solve his money problem.

Charles says that a lot of change has happened on the inside, but so far not much on the outside. He still procrastinates, drinks too much, helps others with their goals when he should be helping himself, and overall feels depressed about his life. Why, he says, should he go to this workshop?

This post is to help Charles with his money problem. And, if you have this problem, it might help you, too.

I also received a question about how to combine Genpo Roshi’s Big Mind process with Holosync, so after answering Charles’ question, I’ll also answer that one, too…

This is a quick post to deal with some skepticism that has come up about what I’ve said about Genpo Roshi and his Big Mind process in a few comments you guys have posted.

First, some have taken issue with my saying that Genpo is the highest ranking Zen master outside of Japan.

In this post we’ll continue our investigation of the developmental process, looking at cognitive development. Cognitive development is one of the most important, if not the most important, line of development. Why? Because many theorists and researchers believe it is necessary (though not sufficient) for development in all the other areas. Unless you can be aware of something (which is what cognition is all about) you can’t be moral about it, feel something about it, create art about it, develop faith around it, organize a self around it, or develop in any other way regarding it.

The great pioneer in cognitive development is Jean Piaget, and I will draw heavily from his work in this post, with additional help from Ken Wilber, and also from Dr. C. George Boeree.

This is a pretty big topic, and I have a lot to share with you, so I’m going to split this into three posts. Part one will cover the first two levels of cognitive development as defined by Piaget. The second post, which will come a few days later, will cover the next two. Then in another post I’ll cover the current thinking about cognitive development beyond Piaget’s stages. I think you will find this information to be particularly fascinating, so let’s get started…

Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been working on several new posts that continue the discussion on ‘stages of development’ in greater detail. The next post will focus on Cognitive Development and include an in depth examination of the work of Jean Piaget. I promise I’ll have these new posts ready for you soon.

In the meantime, I’ve added the ability to listen to an audio version of selected posts.
