I have a BA in Consciousness (studying the holographic paradigm), an MA in education and alternative learning strategies, (mostly with language learning and affect) and 20 years of experience in mind/body therapies, e.g.massage therapy, Shiatsu, Holographic Repatterning, energy work, etc. I am also a health and wellness coach. I have taught various classes for many years ranging from creative writing to yoga and creative movement to English grammar and pronunciation to job development skills and self esteem building. I love teaching and learning new things.
Now, I am most curious how we can accelerate the actual pace of the evolution of consciousness by using our own consciousness as a laser light to focus and create more coherence; also, to utilize the tools on the web as actual "building blocks" (or is it synapses?) for creating the global brain.
I welcome your ideas!
Course Description (no more than 500 words)
Global Brain, anyone? This course is intended to be a shareware collaboration of gamers, theorizers and generalists interested in mind & brain who care about the ongoing health of life on the planet and will discuss and devise applications, activities, and games that will positively shift consciousness.
In this course, we will be discussing the notion of the global brain (Peter Russell), the evolution of consciousness (de Chardin, Wilber), and the question of what consciousness is, and what evolved consciousness might look like. Transcendent states, moving up the "vibrational ladder" of positive emotions (Power vs. Force, David Hawkins), morphogenetic field effects (Rupert Sheldrake), techniques to help maintain positive mindset (Abraham Hicks, Sedona Method) and rid oneself of the "tyranny of beliefs" (Byron Katie) are all tools in the toolbox. But the final parts of the class need to include social networking, games, and applications that could be utilized to help larger numbers of people expand their consciousness in measurable ways. Currently, what kinds of games exist that do or do not expedite consciousness growth? What spiritual practices might there be (meditation, mindfulness, "don't believe everything thing you think", Holo-sync (TM), tonglen) or physical disciplines that could add to the mix? How do we overcome the programming of the reptile brain, the selfish gene, self -serving memes, and just plain ignorance to make our own evolution more fun and enticing? Does the role of the chakra and meridian system have anything to do with it? Are there any ways to devise games that could deprogram the traumas that humans are heir to? It's a brainstorming session par excellence, but the final products will be a collaborative vision of what is possible, and what is pragmatic.
