Course Description:

This course examines theories of lifespan development relevant to integral and transpersonal psychology and psycho-spiritual development, as well as explores the relevance of these theories to diverse and global populations. The emphasis on human experience encourages learners to apply these theories to their own lives, self-realization processes, research topics, and professional goals. Furthermore, this course emphasizes pre- and perinatal development and infancy.

LSDHE is designed for “young people” in the spirit of feeling and knowing that they come from far away and have both a present and a future as protagonists, innovators, and creatives. They can be vanguards of a new culture of sharing that can transcend and include the dualisms, as well as the differences and conflicts, inherent in the larger system that includes them. The separation between theory and practice, between mind and body, between action and feeling, between male and female, between past and future, between matter and consciousness, traditional and scientific, academic and experiential is overcome in a transformative teaching methodology, a further mode that teaches how to make the two one.

This course will follow Ubiquity-style teaching methodology: along with videos and reading texts, there will also be learning technologies for the mastery of inner experience, the management of emotions and states of consciousness, enhancing interpersonal relationships, and practical application projects in real life.

Learning Outcomes:

  • articulate and critique developmental theories and concepts and reflect on the relevance of these theories to your own life, research, and professional goals;
  • reflect skillfully on course readings and each other’s essays;

  • be aware of the role of inner experience, mindfulness, discernment, compassion, and ethics in your personal and professional lives.
