Students say, on a regular basis, that Wisdom Work transforms their lives.

The intro and review class welcomes new students, and for veteran students offers a highly recommended review of the basics. Unfortunately, wisdom does not stay with us. We need to train and “re-certify.”

The intro class focuses on the inner life dimension of the basics of psychology of transformation – how to be calm, focused and rational, and not give into inner disruptions. Whatever the problem is, giving in to inner life disruptions will just makes things worse. We will cover a basic contemplative practice, as well.

The intro class will also focus on building and maintaining a Wall of Virtue, so that our inner negativities don’t fill our inner and interpersonal space. We will specifically be addressing restraining anger and speech (including emails and texting) that is hurtful or provokes others to defensiveness or anger as a response. We will also address the problem of defensiveness itself. With a trained virtue practice, our negativity is restrained (not repressed) by the Wall, and gives us space to reflect on what is happening within so that we can process difficult issues with other people.

Fall Session II (in November) will offer Intermediate/Advance Wisdom Work Theories and Practice for students who have a basic grasp of Wisdom Work. Details to come.
