4. APPLICATION

Konscious ALignment Movement with KALM

is KALM in movement

THE KALM MODEL
integrates
1) the map of the fundamental dimensions of experience,
2) the fundamental competencies of development, 
3) and the natural cycle of evolution
4) in the design of simple, precise and efficient
tools and processes to catalize growth and development,
as well as optimize performance
in our personal and professional lives,
in relationships, projects, organizations and systems.

The essential dynamics of evolution in existence

underlies or propels

change, leaaning, growth, evolution and waking up, because

living is learning

learning is growing

growing is evolving

and evolving is waking up.

1. MAP

Existence is Experience

Aspects of experience as type and process

The KALM MAP embraces the most vanguard 21st century human perspective of Existence.

It is very useful to traverse the territory with more safety, always remembering that it is not more than an image of  changing reality. In order to stay at the leading edge, the map is susceptible to keep changing based on th enew perspectives that keep unfolding.

The KALM Map maps the relams or tiers of Existence:

  • concrete (observe and explore concrete objects),

  • subtle (observe and explore concrete and subtle objects) o

  • causal (observe and explore concrete, subtle and causal objects).

Screen Shot 2018-07-05 at 14.28.04.png

QUADRANTS

are the four fundamental dimensions of experience that are mapped along two axis of experience with apparent polarity: interior/exterior

individual/collective

Screen Shot 2019-06-30 at 16.38.30.png

LINES OF DEVELOPMENT 

codes or aspects of experience:

prEssence, thoughts, emotions, sensations, actions, patterns, perceptions, interconnections and interactions.

Screen Shot 2018-12-17 at 17.13.45.png

TYPES

Include personality types such as the enneagram, Myers Briggs, Gene Keys, quadrants as types, gender as receptive/active.

Screen Shot 2018-11-30 at 15.50.27.png

STATES

represent the position on the axis ESSENCE/Existence depending on the type of object that they contain. The objects can be:

concrete

subtle

metaware

unified

Existence is Experience, which is ESSENCE in movement.

2. CYCLE

Evolution's Dynamic Fractal

Fundamental Competencies of Development

The fundamental competencies of development are th eelements that, when expressed follwoing a specific rhytmic pattern, catalize evolution.

The dynamic pattern is an expansive cylce that we call the , and it manifests at many scales:

ESSENCE/Existence

The Cycle's movements are developmental, and the quality of each of the 4 competencies varies depending on the tier (concrete, subtle or causal) and developmental phase that we are inhabiting in the moment.

The universal competencies manifest in the fundamental 4 dimensions of experience:

  • internal and external,

  • individual and collective

Screen Shot 2018-12-10 at 14.43_edited.p

OBSERVE - RECEPTIVE

lis what is experienced or received in the moment, keeping in mind that eachmoment is always new, forever apparently changing in our perception and interpretaton.

Screen Shot 2018-12-10 at 14.43_edited.p

EXPLORE - ACTIVE exploration or activity with the objects that are observed or received in the moment, apparently volitional activity with what is received.

Screen Shot 2018-12-10 at 14.43_edited.p

ALTERNANTE - RECIPROCITY

alternante between observing and exploring, between receiving and acting, hich manifests as reciprocity with other, object or process.

Screen Shot 2018-12-10 at 14.43_edited.p

SIMULTANEATE - INTERPENETRATE

simultaneity of observing and exploring, receiving and acting, interpenetration or integration with other, object, or process:

I am that.

As outside, so inside.

As above, so below.

What is in you,

is in me too.

ESSENCE is Existence in Stillness.

3. EVOLUTION

Contraction/Expansion

Evolution of the Interpretation of Experience

Evolution is a rhtyhmic movement or pulsation of contraction and expansion, of parts and wholes, of transcend and include, that takes place along three axis of apparent polarity:

interior/exterior

individual/collective

time/space.

These axis are representations of the  fundamental axis

ESEENCE/Existence.

In truth, Existence is ESSENCE in movement and Existence is ESSNCE in Stillness.

That is, ESSENCE and Existence are ONE.

The evolutionary process and th eoptimal development of the fundamental competencies of development gives rise to psychosocial capacities

that contribute to dealing efficiently with the demands and challenges of daily personal and professional life.

OBJECTS/REALMS/TIERS

The objects of experience are changing throughout development, becoming ever more subtle:

concretoe

subtle

metaware

Screen Shot 2019-10-26 at 15.19.04.png

PHASES OF DEVELOPMENT 

are ever more embragcing, they include more of reality in experience and its interpretation.

Screen Shot 2018-11-30 at 15.51.42.png

STATES OF BEING

All phases of development are avialable.

Each moment activates the highest phase available given the circumstances.

There are general tendencies when we are:

  • at our best

  • natural

  • at our worst

How-Fertilization-Happens-722x406_edited

PART AND WHOE SIMULTANEOUSLY

INCLUDE AND TRANSCEND

The fractal of evolution is whole and part simultaneously.

The movement from part to a more embracing whole includes the part and then transcends it.

 Existence is  ESSENCE in movement.

4. APPLICATION

Konscious ALignment Movement with KALM

is KALM in movement

Cyclo, Map and Evolution are integrated in the Konscious ALignment Movement with KALM.

KALM is:

  • the essential dynamic of the evolution of existence

  • the functional dynamics of the KALM Cycle,

  • the optimal expression of the fundamental competencies of development in each tier and phase of development,

  • in all areas of life,

  • in all aspects of experience.

Its application, due to its universality, ranges all spheres of life: individual, behavioral, relational y organizational or systemic.

The Konscious ALignment Movement and the KALM Cycle integrate the discoveries of research, philosophy, theory and practice of hujman development. It is based on the most relevant sources:  Piaget, Kegan, Ericksson, Gebser, Kohlberg, Fowler, Loevinger, Maslow, Cowen and Beck, Cook Greuter, Wilber, STAGES by Terri O'Fallon and STAGES for psychotherapy and coaching by Kim Barta, Kolb, Advaita-Vedanta, Kashmir Shaivism...
Aunque es difícil identificar dónde tiene su origen cada componente del modelo de KALMa, la influencia más importante del modelo del iKALM proviene de Ken Wilber, STAGES International, Integral Coaching Canada, Advaita-Vedanta, KAshmir Shaivism, kinesiology, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture...
The coaching work prior to the creation of the KALM Model was developed in the context of Ken Wilber's AQAL  Integral Coaching Canada's application to coaching. As a consequence of the coaching work with clients, at the beginning of 2010, the idea of the KALM Cycle started to unfold as a fractal in the concrete, subtle and causal tiers, way before the STAGES model was known to us. STAGES has provided a researhc based model that confirms the KALM Cycle fractal and maps it to its proprietary developmental stages. In 2017 Almu found STAGES and started training with STAGES International. Since then she has been adapting the KALM Model to the STAGES Model, following the KALM Cycle: observing, exploring, alternating and is now in the process of simultaneying or including and transcending. :-)
We are deeply grateful to all our teachers,
knowing that we stand on the shoulders of giants that came before us.

PERSONAL CONFIGURATION

In order to recognize where we are and be able to OBSERVE it in the moment,

we use the Personal Configuration to date, which consists on the following elements:

  • The contracted reaction or tendency to react in my bad moments.

  • The  natural response or our general tendency.

  • The expanded response or my tendency in my best moments.

  • All of this in relationship with myself, the others and the world, the environment

  • and my circumstances.

  • in all 9 aspects of experience:

    • prEssence

    • thoughts,

    • emotions,

    • sensations,

    • actions,

    • patterns,

    • perceptions,

    • interconnections 

    • and interactions.

  • and in the areas of life.

Screen Shot 2018-12-12 at 12.47.21.png

The Personal Configuration yields

the Way of Being that is our starting point,

showing with great precision the challenges that have blocked our goal until now.

In order to identify the destination that we want to reach, we follow the same process,

defining the New Way of Being that we desire.

Once the challenges are known in terms of the universal competencies of the KALM Cycle,

identifying the content or context in which they must be developed remains,

designing personalized practices and implementing them to reach the destination.

Putting the practice into action requires

smiling at the challenges in order to navigate, reframe and transcend them,

and EXPLORE the New Way of Being that we long for, that is, practice that which we want.

The New Way of Being, what we long for, is related to the expression of our talent and it is informed by our highest potential or the Sophistication of the Self. The best attitude to challenges is lightness, ease and joy, that is, to smile at the challenge

The Cycle iterates throughout our lives at multiple scales until it reaches its maximum potential. Should we not overcome a challenge, we will turn in cycles without evolving.

The KALM institute has mapped already existing practices to their corresponding phases of development, the fundamental competencies of the KALM Cycle and we are constantly designing and developing new practices.

Since this process is based on the universal competencies of development, it is valid both for personal and professional development, of individuals, couples, groups, teams, communities, etc.
