This meet-up will be about personal transformation, growth, and self-development. We will explore transformation from one way of being to another way of being within different modalities and disciplines, through guest speakers, experiences, discussions, practices, trainings, and more.
Transformation is the invention of a new realm of possibility. The learning gives people an awareness of the basic structures in which one knows, thinks, and acts in the world. From that awareness comes a fundamental shift that leaves people more fully in accord with their own possibilities and those of others. Transformative learning is contrasted with informational learning. Informational learning increases knowledge and ability. Transformative learning results in new perspectives, new abilities, and a new way of being. The common example is of learning to ride a bicycle. Very little information is provided, like "pedal". Suddenly the learner gets balance and is able to ride the bike without help. They have discovered it for themselves, and may never lose the ability to ride a bike. The experience, the learning, transforms the person, their perspective and their abilities. Before they couldn't, now they can. And, as a result a whole new world of possibilities has now opened up.
