Building around the revolutionary work of Harvard psychologists Robert Kegan and Lisa Lahey called Immunity to Change, Tom has designed a process for participants in small groups to develop a new, expansive awareness. Using this process, individuals and eventually communities, are able to make important changes while developing the greater mental and emotional complexity required in today’s world. Tom makes the audacious claim here that faith communities are uniquely situated to lead the evolution of human consciousness to help create a more just, caring and sustainable world. Crazy Wisdom is dedicated to answering how we just might go about doing that.
Tom has just completed his fourth career: his first was as an economics professor, then an artist/craftsman, and most recently pastor of an integral Christian church. Now an unintentional author, he has written four books with a fifth in the works. His focus is on the evolution of human consciousness: developing practical tools and cultural stories that nurture expanding perspectives. His work is grounded in eight years of transformational practice during his 20’s, a PhD in Education and 20 years studying Integral Theory. Tom’s latest book, Crazy Wisdom: Tools for Evolving Consciousness, reflects 12 years experience leading individuals through deep personal change in a faith setting. Beginning with the Immunity to Change process developed by Harvard psychologists Robert Kegan and Lisa Lahey, Tom expands their work for the unique opportunities of the faith setting.
