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.
