Welcome to Becoming Conscious, a unique online course by Dr. Arthur Versluis. This course introduces the humanities in an entirely new way, in the light of consciousness. In it, we’re going to explore how, by working with nature, and with the great works of the humanities, you can develop your consciousness in unexpected and vital ways. It is organized with weekly experiments aligned with readings and explorations of literature, art, music, theater, and more.
In Becoming Conscious, you’ll explore the humanities in fundamentally new ways, and in the process explore what it means to be truly human. Philosophy, literature, drama, poetry, art, nature: these are actually ways of exploring who we are, and the nature of our own consciousness. Join us in this exploration.
Course topics include: Becoming Conscious Rediscovering Meaning in Nature Working with Dreams The Consciousness Revolution Reflective Awareness Seeing Poetry Anew Seeing the World Anew Fiction in a New Light Hearing the Cosmos Experiencing Dramatic Life Understanding the Cosmos Realizing Our Nature Integrative Learning Toward A New Renaissance Meditation and Your Mind Conscious Life
