Course Description:

Topics include economics, subtle fields, leadership, human ecology, volution, the trinity, science and spirituality, time, thought, language, geomancy and crop formations.

By the end of this course you should be able to:

  • describe some fundamental patterns in the human story and current transition;
  • move meaningfully across a number of core topics in a deep and broad discussion of life;
  • question your own perceptions and explore curiously into the unknown;
