The Equilintegration or EI Self is a pictographic representation of Equilintegration or EI Theory. Taken together, EI Theory and the EI Self comprise the EI Model, which is the theoretical frameworking underlying the BEVI.

For more information, please see:
2) The EI Self: Real World Implications and Applications of EI Theory (Chapter 2 from Making Sense of Beliefs and Values, 2016).

In the Beviverse™, the EI Self™ is populated by actual data from the BEVI (i.e., BEVI scale scores from an individual, a couple, a group, etc.). Through this Virtual Reality (VR) / Artificial Intelligence (AI) system, individuals who are have taken the BEVI are able to explore their own “self” and (with permission) other selves by confidential sessions with the BEVI Team (e.g., through coaching) and/or by engaging Being Bevi™, the entity that lives within the Beviverse.

The below video provides an example of an EI Self living in the Beviverse.

The BEVI has been featured in a wide range of publications and presentations in the U.S. and internationally and has been selected for a number of grant-based initiatives.  For example, the 2016 publication with Springer Publishing — Making Sense of Beliefs and Values: Theory, Research, and Practice — includes 16 different chapters covering a wide range of topics related to the BEVI.  Please see below for a sampling of BEVI publications.

IBAVI Global – Aurora Alliance: Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced BEVI Training Workshop




The IBAVI Global Assessment Committee partnered with the Aurora Alliance BEVI Committee to offer three types of BEVI Training Workshops: 1) Basic, 2) Intermediate, and 3) Advanced.

Basic BEVI Training is designed for individuals who are new to the BEVI, and essentially consists of two parts: 1) a self-paced review of workshops from previously recorded webinars and related materials [see the above four workshops under “BEVI Workshops for IBAVI”] as well as 2) participation in a live Q&A session. Intermediate BEVI Training goes into more depth on the workings of the BEVI as well as the meaning and interactions among BEVI scales. Advanced BEVI Training is designed for individuals who have completed both Basic and Intermediate BEVI Training, and includes in depth group work and expert advice on the interpretation of the BEVI reports.

Below, you’ll find video and PowerPoint links for specific components of these training workshops. As with all materials in the Admin section of, please do not share with anyone who is not authorized to review them.
