Generative and Transpersonal Groups

This chapter addresses the highest level of group functioning or the sev­ enth level of the arc. In this transpersonal state, the group becomes more than the sum of the individuals who comprise it, and that emergent aspect is referred to in this chapter as the group or collective mind. With respect to chaos theory, this stage is the result of many successful bifurcations in which the group moved from a lower level of functioning to a higher level.
