Human Growth and Development: Contemplative View

An exploration of human experience and psychological development throughout the trajectory of a lifetime. Key events, life passages, human nature, needs, and development will be explored. Seminal theories of Western psychology, together with key concepts and practices of Buddhism, provide a context within which we will consider an integrative view of human development. Understanding of these subjects will be deepened through self-reflection, meditation, observation, and a consideration of what supports health and development. A major goal of the class is to arouse interest in human experience and development.
