In the mid 60's the psychologist Abraham Maslow stated that less than 1% of adults grow. After 25 years of teaching and counseling adults I have become convinced that few of us survive childhood in contemporary global culture. This website is dedicated to the initiation of collaboration within the context of Bernard Lonergan's Functional Specialization (Method in Theology, Herder & Herder, NY, 1972) in an effort to gradually shift Maslow's statistic. Through dialogue and the sharing of insights dedicated to the emergence of cultural change a contribution can be made to the long term project of discovering "How to Grow and Educate a Child". Articles will be posted on this site pertaining to a more potentially authentic approach to the growing of people.
