Revolution of the Mind: Transformative Learning for Sustainable Living

New Earth Institute course starts in February 2009

Open for registration now!


We are excited to offer the Revolution of the Mind course in Nova  
Scotia as one of the first offerings of the New Earth Institute, which  
is an organization that is evoking new solutions to the pressing  
problems we are facing today through transformative, holistic  
educational processes.

In these critical times, we need new forms of leadership and a new  
generation of change agents who have a genuine appreciation for the  
inner and outer dimensions of healthy, sustainable transformation.

To this end, the "Revolution of the Mind" will introduce participants  
to revolutionary integral frameworks, processes and tools that have  
been developed by various leaders in systems change around the world.  
Through facilitated personal and group exploration of these models,  
they will come to life and will enable participants to apply what they  
have learned effectively in their respective fields.

The course is based on integral, contemplative models of education and  
wisdom traditions. It will engage both 'inner' (personal, mental,  
spiritual) and 'outer' (cultural, social, environmental, economic)  
dimensions of beneficial personal and social transformation. The  
systems of knowledge and approaches usually applied to the challenges  
we face in the world will be complimented and enhanced through  
familiarization with the intelligence that comes through inquiry and  
redefining concepts. In short, this will be a process of learning how  
our every thought and action is an opportunity to impact the planet  
positively. The intention is to inspire new, holistic solutions and  
the leadership to address the most pressing ecological and social  
concerns of modern life.

The course will benefit individuals, organizations and communities  
seeking more holistic, integral and dynamic pathways to a bright and  
sustainable future. The fruit of the process for participants is a  
more integrated, personal sense of direction, purpose and vision in  
whatever field s/he is engaged in and committed to.

Revolution of the Mind will be delivered over 8 weekly 3-hour evening  
sessions. It will culminate in an optional weekend retreat on Nova  
Scotia’s beautiful South Shore.
