Struggling with barriers internal and external to oneself is a common and mythic challenge facing all who are involved in the dynamic process of change. The class will examine the stages of the hero’s journey and the common elements of the change process, storytelling and dynamics of psychological change, the alternating themes of sacrifice and bliss and examination of relationships and our natural environment within in the change cycle. The class will integrate concepts of mythology, religion, history, psychology, education, sociology and interpersonal neurobiology. MU Core category: Community & Global Engagement. 4 crs.
