I knew adding a masters program to my already-full life would be a big adjustment, but the Spring seminar made it almost seamless. To be immersed in the practical tools of transition, within a community of supportive faculty and students, offered the perfect beginning to my TIES journey.

TIES Spring Early Immersion session is a must! It really prepared me for the format and expectations of future seminars. The content was so helpful! Understanding life’s transitions put me in touch with knowing “I’m not the only one.” Mind mapping is a new experience that is worth learning. Overall, I am thankful that I decided to participate.

I am really glad that I had an opportunity to participate in the Spring early immersion course before starting the full program in September. It gave me an overview of what I would be doing during my studies, since reflecting on thoughts and sharing feelings is a quite new understanding that I needed to practice. In TIES, the doors always gently open with a sense of curiosity, non-judgemental awareness, and acceptance that helps us to collaborate with others.

This course of study examines how life’s transitions are opportunities for discovering and/or rediscovering the innate propensity for an integrative worldview. Through a process of mapping life transitions, participants will also examine their personal transitions through the lens of self-discovery in the cycle of life.

Our core questions include: How does integrative learning assist in approaching the study of transitions?  In what ways can I apply this approach in my professional life now?  How do others approach transitions, and what does our combined wisdom create?  Which are the tools that are most useful to me in my context for integrating learning?

Integrative learning is created through a new approach to contextualizing content and process.  The tools and techniques inform an attitude and culture.  The learning is substantiated through relevance and application, while also being immersed in contemporary cosmology, ecology and ancient wisdom from indigenous ways of being. It is also fun, fresh, immediate and very rewarding.
