Knowing oneself is the basis of knowledge, as the ancient Greek philosopher Socrates taught. This class explores theories, narratives, and techniques of self-growth. This is a “hands on,” practical-learning course, based on the proposition that each of us processes the capacity of attaining a life of fulfillment. In addition to traditional methods of learning, this class will also explore techniques of various eastern, western, and indigenous traditions such as, Buddhist, Vedic, Sufism, Kabbalah, Christian mysticism, and others. In short, this class will prepare you to be a better reader, writer, researcher, and thinker who is able to effectively engage with, and listen to, philosophical texts, fellow students, the professor, and oneself. As part of the process of furthering your growth, you will likely clarify or develop your own philosophy of life.
