Course Plan

Week 1 - Who Am I?
Welcome to Finding Purpose and Meaning, where we will spend the first week exploring the transpersonal concept of self-identity. The role of transpersonal identity beyond biological self existence is the foundational focus for this module, where the underpinning philosophy is that humans, first and foremost, are spiritual beings with a physical experience in the material world.
Week 2 - Where Am I From?
In Week 2 we will explore the origin of human existence based on transpersonal psychological ontology. The ideology in its simplest form looks to the origin of human spirit identity from ultimate reality – known as universal consciousness. The realization of this knowledge has a profound effect on human interactions with the material world.
Week 3 - What Can I Do?
To answer this week’s question, we must explore the concepts of human potential based on the themes of talents, spiritual gifts, and natural endowments. The implication of innate ability on well-being from a transpersonal psychology perspective will allow you to see career development as a vocational calling.
Week 4 - Why Am I Here?
To find purpose, we must first understand what we’re looking for. This week we will explore the concept of purpose and the reality of capturing personal purpose in life. The transpersonal psychology concept of a divine manufacturer, ultimate reality, discusses the fact that production of a product is determined by the original intent in the mind of the manufacturer. Hence, humans are products of purpose from the “intelligent designer”.
Week 5 - Where Am I Going In Life?
In our last week together, we will explore the concept of a personal guiding vision based on the discovery of personal purpose. Personal vision is a product of personal purpose in life, and we will take our inspiration from the central theme of to live life from a design of vision, not experimentation; which leads to ineffective living.
