This quarter long program will take on a broad base study of well-being, addressing the mental, physical, social, emotional, and spiritual dimensions. The program will examine the diverse ways individuals within cultural communities define well-being as well as the connection between well-being and our "shadow" side. We will provide an environment to assist students to further develop competencies in the disciplines of psychology, community and health, and spiritual practice. During the quarter we will devote time to critical analysis, experiential inquiry, writing skills, and computer proficiencies. We will address the questions: What contributes to satisfying, engaging, and meaningful living; and What conditions allow people and communities to flourish?
