INTS 475: Special Topics

INTS 475-004: Pers Transfrmtn: Theory/Prctc
(Spring 2019)

Online

Section Information for Spring 2019

This course combines academic study and highly experiential learning around issues of how we undergo deep personal changes of values, worldview, and life-purpose.  Transformational changes are sometimes triggered by trauma or crisis, but potentially they are initiated by personal choice and intention.  We will explore the research literature about ways to cultivate well-being and resilience in the midst of a transformation process.  In addition to theoretical considerations, students will be asked to examine their own personal growth process and experiment with mindfulness and positive-intention exercises to cultivate enhanced self-awareness and agency in their own unfolding life experience.

This is a hybrid course with a four-day course intensive January 16-19 (10:30 am to 5:00 pm) just before the start of the regular semester classes; then four Friday sessions (10:30 am to 1:10 pm on February 1 and 22, March 22, and April 12). In addition, there will be online modules throughout the semester.
