I’ve known from the beginning however, exactly what I wanted to share. Two memories of Chris came to mind the second I […]

One word of many that best describes Chris is “brilliant”. I am truly grateful for the time I got to invest learning from him. His understanding of subject matter covered in spiral dynamics trainings, his ability to teach it, his fine distinctions that made him understand it better then anyone, and his amazing metaphors that really brought the information home; […]

Before I decided to take the SD course my world was crumbling around me. Suddenly I was not able to make my decisions, had a harrowing battle inside of me, tormented with the question what decision should I take that will be the right one for the rest of my life. And then, I finally decided to register and attend […]

Thank you for mindblowing insights

In the late 90-ties I read the Spiral Dynamics book and it blew my mind. In 2004 I attended SD1 & 2 in den Haag with Chris and Natasha and got increasingly intrigued by the knowledge and the point of view offered and by the way they presented the contents. Even though I didn’t know him personally my view of […]
