Toward an Integral Education for the Ecozoic Era

Toward an Integral Education for the Ecozoic Era This article explores the 2002-2003 change in vision and educational philosophy of a grassroots international college in rural Sweden. The author proceeds with an integral assessment of the strengths and shortcomings of Holma College of Holistic Studies former modes of learning guided by a postmodern epistemology infected with narcissism, hypersubjectivity, and new age thought. Exploring new territory beyond the scope of the former holistic vision, the author articulates an integrally informed vision of education for young adults that offers a shared integral language, a functional life-world ethic, and comprehensive frameworks for transformative learning and development appropriate to our time. With the intent of proposing a model of praxis directly informed by the fields of transformative learning and integral studies, the author outlines and reflects on the first wave of integral education that emerged during the transition year to Holma College of Integral Studies. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Transformative Education SAGE

Abstract

This article explores the 2002-2003 change in vision and educational philosophy of a grassroots international college in rural Sweden. The author proceeds with an integral assessment of the strengths and shortcomings of Holma College of Holistic Studies former modes of learning guided by a postmodern epistemology infected with narcissism, hypersubjectivity, and new age thought. Exploring new territory beyond the scope of the former holistic vision, the author articulates an integrally informed vision of education for young adults that offers a shared integral language, a functional life-world ethic, and comprehensive frameworks for transformative learning and development appropriate to our time. With the intent of proposing a model of praxis directly informed by the fields of transformative learning and integral studies, the author outlines and reflects on the first wave of integral education that emerged during the transition year to Holma College of Integral Studies.
