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
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.

sessions. It will culminate in an optional weekend retreat on Nova
Scotia’s beautiful South Shore.
