Expanding our worldview: Courses that may interest you

The more we learn, the more we know we don’t know. Think about it. There’s a wealth of wisdom around us. Once we settle comfortably into what we believe to be “The Right Answer,” curiosity diminishes and our world shrinks … just a little bit. And once that closed mindset cracks open, our worldview expands just a little bit.

“There is a crack in everything / That’s how the light gets in” (Leonard Cohen, Anthem).

The Transformative Learning Foundation (TLF) offers a Practitioner Program in Transformative Learning, a program that has a vocational focus and is intended for those with career experience in transformative learning. TLF is founded on respect for the capacity of each individual learner to author their own learning. Learning is centered on the transformative understanding that we as human beings have the capacity to author our own lives from a place of resourcefulness, creativity, and possibility.

Practitioner Program in Transformative Learning Communities

The Practitioner Certificate in Transformative Learning Communities program includes 6 courses in all. Learners add to their portfolio as they journey through the program and culminate their program by choosing a practice experience and/or final project. You have the opportunity to explore your own curiosity, answer your own questions, and follow your own enthusiasms—within our learning community.

Other growth opportunities

As a transformative learning institute, we are pleased to share a few courses that also focus on a shifting paradigm, which are as follows.

Empowering Relationships, Gnostic Centre

Course Description: “Relationships may empower us or they may disempower – either way, they exert a great power over the way we think, feel or behave, and who we become. Let us take some time to look at our most significant relationships. Let us spend time empowering our relationships and letting them empower us.”

The New Creation of Self, Gnostic Centre

Course Description: “The Course explores attitudes, meditations, exercises and techniques to come in touch with one’s goals and aspirations on the mental, emotional, physical, psychic and spiritual level.”

Ecosystems of Education, Enki Education

  • Starting September, there’s a new round of the Ecosystems of Education Course offered by Enki Education. The deadline for registration is August 15, 2019, and the program begins with its first class on Sunday September 8, 2019.

Course Description: “At this time in history we are badly in need of a focus on the ecosystems of our lives. In truth, we are in need of a full paradigm shift and that starts with education. But we can’t teach ABOUT a paradigm shift, standing in the old one or we simply reinforce the known ways. We have to begin with truly shifting the educational paradigm. There are many ways to manifest that shift, but we have to begin with making the shift. That is what this course is about, and how it unfolds.”

Bright Futures Now, Context Institute

  • The next Bright Futures Now course runs from July 6 to August 25, 2019. Each cohort is limited to 21 people to maintain a high quality experience. Other courses will follow, starting September 28, 2019, January 11, 2020 and April 4, 2020.

Course Description: Bright Future Now is a 7-week online course available everywhere in the world. Designed for change agents and cultural co-creatives, it enables you to find the positive momentum of our times – and align your life with it – so you can build a brighter future for yourself and for all life.
