This article describes seven years of research on an ongoing experiment that fosters the development of individuals and groups through an integrally informed educational program called Generating Transformative Change (GTC). A progressively targeted developmental action research project involving seven cohorts is described and the conclusions about three of these participant groups, involving a total of 30 people, are presented. Participants were given the Sentence Completion Test international, Maturity Assessment Profile (SCTi-MAP) upon entering the GTC program. Six months after completion of the program, participants were tested again. This article describes the individual and group developmental changes measured by these tests over a period of two years. Findings indicate that individuals grew a stage or more and groups grew one stage within the two-year period.
