*** CONFERENCE!! Reconciling Science and Spirit, Nov. 16 - 18, 2007 ***


Founded by Arthur M. Young in 1972, the Institute for the Study of Consciousness ("ISC") continues to use the Theory of Process ("ToP") as a paradigm to orient our global cultures to our current evolutionary turning point in a way that integrates the achievements of materialist determinism within the larger context of the transcendent human freedom.

Theory of Process POSTER now available:

The ISC, with funding and support from Anodos Foundation and the editorial and graphic resources of The Grove Consultants International, has recently produced a 20 inch x 30 inch color waterproof Poster that serves as a primer, introduction, summary, and graphic display of the Theory of Process ("ToP"). The Poster includes background about Arthur Young, a brief outline of the theory, and graphics of the following features: the grid, the learning cycle, the rosetta stone of meaning, a table of characterizations of the four levels, and several arcs illustrating diverse applications of the seven-stages of process. The Poster provides a coherent, beautiful, succinct, and accessible quick reference about ToP at your fingertips. This Poster is what you will want to have with you when you suddenly get the urge to tell someone about the Theory of Process and its power.

The Poster is available folded into a convenient hand-size of 7.5 inch x 10 inch. As it is unfolded, each level of ToP is exemplified.


Wholesale customers or educators wishing to use the poster for student or classroom use, please contact Jack Engstrom,
