Impact = Actualising Transformation
A Force for Personal and Collective Liberation
Moving towards that objective, a paradigm shift in education is required. Building on our Integral Worlds approach we have designed educational journeys that interconnect the development of self, organisation, community and society, and that are of transdiscipinary, transcultural, transpersonal and transformational character. Seeking to make contributions to individual lives and collective development impulses in a locally relevant manner, we continuously break down the artificial borders between university and society.
In the past we have cooperated with many transformatively oriented universities from around the world, such as, for example, Buckingham University and Liverpool’s Hope University in the UK, Luxembourg University, University of Johannesburg in South Africa, Ibadan University in Nigeria, Bethel University and Meridian University in the USA, Heliopolis University in Egypt, and St. Gallen University in Switzerland.
To demonstrate the transformative nature of our educational work, we introduce a couple of examples of recent integral development courses, the first two on a Bachelor Level (with the University of St. Gallen), the third one on a PhD level (with Meridian University):
- University of St. Gallen, Switzerland: Integral Development Course
- University of St. Gallen, Switzerland: Integrated Self Development – On Becoming an Agent of Transformation
- Meridian University, California, USA: Integral Development (PhD) Course
