What happens when we check our egos, step into the unknown, and push past the boundaries of fear that are with us wherever we go? In this seminar, we focus on reexamining with fresh eyes that which we think we already understand; on seeing things in new ways. First, through the greater lens of ecological consciousness. Second, by examining our place in Earth's ecological structure, examining ourselves as Beings, and delving deeper into what makes us both human and individuals. And third, through the experiences of bravery and taking chances. Note: For this course, we will go on a (day) field trip.
