Revolution of the Mind - Transformative Learning for Integrated Living
Fall 2009 Registration Open
8 weekly meetings of 3 hours. Two locations in Nova Scotia:
Halifax: Thursday nights, 6-9 p.m., Oct. 22 - Dec. 10
Mahone Bay: Monday nights, 6-9 p.m., Oct 26 - Dec 14
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.
People in the 21st century need to develop unprecedented levels of
intercultural cooperation, mutual moral concern, creativity, and skill
in effectively addressing the challenges of the world today.An
education that focuses on cognitive skills development and knowledge
accumulation to develop compassionate world citizens in such a context
is too limited. Other aspects of human intelligence need to be
addressed, including the skills and qualities of awareness associated
with social and emotional regulation, ethical responsibility, and
empathy for others.
This course is based on integral models of education and is highly
experiential and practical. Participants will explore the relevance of
essential insights from educational theory and practice, transpersonal
psychology and the wisdom of contemplative traditions concerning the
nature of mind in their own lives. Through a unique mind-mapping
exercise, participants will see the deep commonalities of human
experience. Carried forward into life, these guided cognitive and
reflective technologies, can begin to improve attention, emotional
regulation and transform automatic responses to the world from a
reactive mode to a more reflective mode. This positions us optimally
to meet the extraordinary political, social, and spiritual challenges
of our time.
