Join Katia Petersen, PhD, and Marilyn Schlitz, PhD, for a deep exploration of worldview, and discover how much worldview informs how you live your life and what you are capable of seeing and experiencing.

Amid ever-increasing cultural diversity and social complexity, it is clear that developing the capacity and competency to understand a multitude of perspectives is necessary to navigate and thrive in a global society. How can we learn to know ourselves and to appreciate others in a multicultural society with numerous, sometimes dramatically opposed, traditions, values, and goals? What will help us communicate and work together successfully to create personal fulfillment, healthy relationships, and global sustainability?

Thriving in the 21st century requires dramatic changes in the way we handle complex encounters and different perspectives; this is a shift that asks us to consider anew the way we experience ourselves, others, and our place in the world.

Through experiential practices, self-reflection, journaling, small group discussions, and lectures, you will explore the decades of research conducted by the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) that show that the most powerful step people can take toward achieving their highest potential is to cultivate the willingness and ability to understand new perspectives. The Worldview Explorations Project (formerly the Worldview Literacy Project) is an innovative educational initiative that has grown out of the IONS research.
