GPHD7803: Emerging Worldviews: The Art and Science of Transformation

Credits 3
This course explores the nature of worldviews, introducing the concept of worldview literacy as a pedagogy for examining our beliefs, perceptions, behaviors and biases. Through lectures, experiential practices, readings, online discussions and live chats, we will consider the ways in which worldview literacy can be used to help people transform their behaviors, improve relationships, develop effective communication strategies, and enhance lived experience. We will identify methods for engaging in collaborative dialogues about diverse worldviews and beliefs. We will apply worldview literacy to transpersonal psychology and overview diverse perspectives and research findings.
