Participants will examine the latest developments in the study of consciousness in four thematic units focusing on the relationship of consciusness and neuroscience, psychology, mindfulness and spirituality. Modes of inquiry will include seminars, individual research, response projects and presentations. As a way to express Evergreen's collaborative focus, students will meet together on the first week of the quarter and will create a syllabus in collaboration with the faculty.

The class will follow contemplative educational practices as a way to develop concentration, mindfulness, and the equanimity to address the complex themes with a clear mind.

Students will also design a four-credit independent project based on individual interests. This project will be presented orally to the rest of the class by the last week of the quarter, and can include arts, presentation software, images and sound.
