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.
