PCE 242 - Peace Practice: Transformation of Self and World (4 Cr.)

(GEN.ED. #8)
Beginning with the assertion that each of us both mirrors and enacts larger social patterns, this course trains students in effecting social change by transforming their interactions with these patterns at the scale of the personal. Through mindfulness training, students learn to recognize and disrupt their habits of meaning-making and invent new ways of engaging with the world. Through training in nonviolent communication, students enhance their ability to communicate across differences. Finally, through collaborative vision projects, students learn to “trope against trope,” inventing narrative practices that do not merely respond or react, but disturb and discover new possibilities within the self-organizing systems of which they are a part. Prerequisites: PCE 110  or permission of the instructor. Spring semester. Meisner.
