ABSTRACT

This article reviews the relationships between filial piety(hyo; 孝) as a Confucian spirituality and spiritual development based on the application of Ken Wilber's intergral model and positive youth development model as an analytic framework. Ken Wilber's integral model as suggested with integration of many human development theories can be utilized for the study to accomplish the purpose of filial piety to find a method for practices. Although Wilber's integral models do not correspond exactly to traditional Confucian views of development, Canda views it as an exact parallel to the Confucian principles and simplified into four stages of spiritual consciousness development as conventional filial piety, reflective filial piety, holistic filial piety, and unitary filial piety. Also, for the positive youth development model, the filial piety can be reviewed as a resource of positive outcomes, contributable element for identity development, a strength aspect for the youth, a connection to community, a meaningful practices for at-risk youth, and a therapeutic intervention for youth problems. Ultimately, filial piety can serve as a vehicle of spiritual self-vultivation for youth that enables them to engage in relationships with others in society and all in the nature.
