Spiral Dynamics Mind Map
Today I officially started kicking off my research into Spiral Dynamics. I’ve had some superficial knowledge of the subject due to my exposure to a number of books on Integral philosophy. I recently came across the original book on Spiral Dynamics by Beck and Cowan and thought this would be a good place to start.
I also remembered seeing a link to a mindmap on Spiral Dynamics a couple years ago and decided to hunt it down before I immersed myself too far into the book. I found the original link via a Google search, but unfortunately discovered that the original site is no longer up (http://www.integralsingularity.com/freemindbrowser.html). Thanks to the WayBackMachine (archive.org) I was able to salvage the map. I was going to upload and view through my Mind Map Viewer, however FreeMind’s flash viewer was having problems rendering it (possibly due to the size?).
At any rate, I figured I would salvage this great bit of research and host somewhere so others could benefit (full credit goes to the original author). I’ve uploaded the map to my site(SWF/Flash format from MindManager), and provided some links to the map in other formats (FreeMind,Mind Manager,PDF, and HTML outline).

Thanks for doing all that work Eric – three gold stars and a smiley stamp :). I’ve updated the link on Integral Diagrams for Mind Map of Spiral Dynamics (under Other diagrams:) to this blog post.
Thanks Stephen 😉 Stay tuned, I’m sure there will be more maps to come.
Thanks for putting this up. I myself have been looking for it ever since it’s old site went down.
Hmm, the PDF link is a single white page.
The PDF works fine for me on my Mac. What operating system are you using?
I’ll give it a try on Linux and Windows as well.
Microsoft Windows XP
Service Pack 3
Very strange. It does work on Linux and Mac, but not on Windows XP SP3 using the latest version of Adobe. I re-exported the PDF using MindManager and verified it works now.
Thanks so much for this resource, much appreciated, to be included as part of current research project at allisasis.info

Great details break down in SD…
Like all “tools” or “maps” it’s not the end all but it is a hell of a powerful reference tool and filter through which to view the world–preferably with one eye.
I’m sure by now you’re a black-belt in this…
I cant’ tell you how often I reference SD for perspective and compassion.
Has anyone ever attempted to construct a classification of worldviews?…
Don Beck in collaboration with Ken Wilbur refined the work of Clare graves and gave us “Spiral Dynamics Integral” which specifically defines world-views in relation to stages of human development. Much more information is available than can be includ…
How does one get past postmodern thinking?…
Post modern cognition is a stage of human conscious evolution and can be transcended (and included). One first requires the capacity to self assess as being primarily post-modern in ones cognitive style, from there one can begin to question the assumpt…
I couldn’t make your MindMap plug-in work on Chrome, despite downloading various ‘readers’ until I changed browsers to FIREFOX (on my Mac) and it instantly unfolded when I clicked your link. Maybe you’ve mentioned that, but I didn’t see it.
Also, a useful explication of Graves: https://boxofpuzzlepieces.wordpress.com/2012/10/01/intro-to-gravesjung-model/
And, of course, the extremely detailed, extraordinarily useful record of Clare Graves’ thinking edited by Chris Cowan and Natasha Todorovic: The Never Ending Quest
