leave people better than you found them

0

Both my SD trainings in the Hague had a huge impact on me. Both Natasha and Chris spoke so eloquently on Graves theory and all the other materials old and new. I could see how this would add to my life, and how this could be used as a force for good. Their personal interest in all delegates was heartfelt […]

A truly Worthy LIFE

0

Chris, You kept your center on humanity’s critical need to understand and appreciate Clare Graves. Without you the message would have been muddled and maybe forgotten. My life would not have been complete without knowing and understanding what you learned and presented. The study of human evolution with its various fits and starts will use Graves as a way of […]

We have lost a great artist

0

I found out about Chris’s passing a few days ago through Dianne Moore. I was devastated, I cried! I found Chris to be such a gentle giant of a man, a man who had a command and understanding of a body of knowledge that you know you are only picking up the broad brush strokes of. Chris was an artist. […]

Au revoir, Chris

0

Au revoir, Chris. Voilà bien une cocasserie de grand homme que d’entreprendre ton ‘long voyage’ alors que nous nous appliquions à intégrer le long et puissant message dont tu t’es fait le porteur. Et quel porteur ! Je n’oublierai jamais combien je fus époustouflé par ton modèle pédagogique, tout empreint d’espièglerie et d’intelligence, qui avait le percutant pouvoir de rendre […]

Quel tuo sorriso

0

Scrivo nella mia lingua perché già così è difficile trovare parole adatte. Conoscerti Chris è stato davvero un piacere ed un onore! Porterò nel cuore il tuo sorriso dolce e a tratti quasi birichino, le musiche scelte per accompagnarci nel viaggio di scoperta delle spirali, la passione profonda e la grande generosità nel condividere il tuo sapere, i piccoli rimbrotti […]

You Are Remembered

0

Dear Chris, We met in 2009 at a SDL1&2 training in Melbourne. I had heard about the Spiral Dynamics program and somehow expected to participate in a fascinating learning experience about human nature. I was profoundly impressed by your and Natasha’s depth of understanding and the teaching mastery you both displayed. Everything became an opportunity to practice and refine: a […]

un tributo a la inmortalidad

0

Quisiera empezar diciendo que es imposible hablar de Chris, sin hablar de Natascha, por lo tanto mi tributo es para los dos: Los chinos tienen una forma de ver lo trascendente de una manera particular: ellos consideran que en vida se debe construir la morada en la cual viviremos cuando no estemos, por lo tanto, la inmortalidad se teje en […]

La profondità con la quale mi avete insegnato il vostro sapere è per me fonte di saggezza quotidiana. Chris grazie ancora. È stato un vero onore averti conosciuto. Michele […]

Thirteen years of pleasant cooperation

0

I shall remember Chris as an open, friendly and interesting personality who taught us the roots of Graves theory: ‘the Emergent, Cyclical, Double-Helix Model of adult behaviour systems and their development’. Since 2002 we organized with him and Natasha in The Hague each year these SD courses. It was always pleasant to hear all the stories he could tell us […]

A great communicator lost to us

0

I hadn’t seen Chris since December 1998, hadn’t had a meaningful dialogue with him since 2009 and no communication at all since December 2012 (exchange of Christmas greetings). So it’s a measure of the man that I feel compelled to honour his life and his memory. The Beck & Cowan SD-1 workshops of April 1998 completely transformed my life and […]

Reflection and Sympathy

0

I was privileged to know Chris Cowan, as a mentor, instructor and friend for almost twenty years…..I grew with every interaction! My favorite Chis moments, however, were those spent in relaxed conversation, sharing great food, laughs, hugs and feelings in beautiful Santa Barbara. I am grateful. Natasha, I wish you peace. Marybeth Laymen, August 3, 2015

The world has lost a great soul

0

Dear Natasha family and loved ones from Chris. I wish you all the strength and love that I experienced meeting Chris some years ago. His warm hart and compassion for his environment and the world as a whole inspired me. Just a few weeks ago I learned that he wasn’t coming to the Netherlands this autumn. Chris I’ll remember you […]

YOUR WAY TO TOUCH SOULS

0

Dear Chris, I was expecting to meet you again, ask you questions about SD and grow thanks to your and Natasha’s experience. I was expecting to see your smile again in a course… I was expecting our paths were going to meet other times. But this is not gonna happen and I’m sad for this. Maybe it’s too late to […]

Such warmth and insight

0

My memories of Chris are one of being warm, peaceful in relation to others and so passionate about the subject matter of his trainings – his beloved Spiral Dynamics. Thank you Chris for integrating as much of Clare Graves work as you could and then sharing that and making it available to other people. You have helped to make the […]

Kind and generous soul

What I will keep in my heart forever is your kindness and generosity. You were an amazing soul, always available and gentle. You were really committed to understand humanity without judgment. I learned a lot from you, but this is what I’ll try to carry on… Keep shining up there and show us all the colors. With all my love […]

Words of condolences and remembrance in Chris’s memory from Ukraine

0

I extend my deep, sincere condolences to Natasha and all Chris’s near ones. Also, that Chris is gone is a tremendous and very sad loss for us all who knew Chris personally and studied under his invaluable expert guidance and generous support. When I first got interested in Graves’s theory and SD, I chose to study it under Chris and […]

Chris

0

Di Chris mi piaceva il modo che aveva di guardare le persone, con gli occhi sorridenti come se stesse sempre cercando di dirti “forza che ce la fai”, il suo senso umoristico e la sua innata capacità di inserirsi nel discorso con una battuta per aggiungere qualcosa di importante. quando facevi un corso con lui ti sentivi accolto, aldilà del […]
