In this 6 week course you will discover a genuine American tradition of enlightenment that we need today more than ever. You will take a journey through the history of American philosophy to see how the idea that reality is an indivisible evolving whole was developed. Along the way you will see how ideas of a higher self and the stream of consciousness challenged fundamental notions of selfhood and freewill. This will be a fascinating journey that will include as much enlightenment dharma as it does historical context. We will discover, practice and experience a new relationship to life.
In our complex, rapidly changing, globally challenged and interconnected world, we need to think deeply in order to be able to respond to life with sensitivity, depth and wisdom. We are trying to figure out how to live together on an overcrowded planet with shrinking resources and in the midst of violently conflicting worldviews. We need big thinkers who understand not just our world, but how we think and how our ideas can create the change we need.
In this course you will discover some of the very best of the wisdom too often hidden in the American philosophical tradition. The ideas of Ralph Waldo Emerson, Margaret Fuller, William James and others will come alive in your immediate experience. You will see that these philosophers were as much mystics as thinkers, and as you learn how to approach them with an open heart and mind you will discover a profound spiritual teaching of Unity and Conscious Evolution.
