University Connected Learning
We have entered a new and hopeful era of human achievement. A new brain science of personal and spiritual development has emerged in the last fifteen years. The brain is not static or unchanging. We can self-direct our mind, using specific practices, to rewire brain circuits and create new pathways to consciously support positive life changes, contentment, compassion, calmness, and joy even as we age. Prayer, meditation, contemplation, and chanting change the brain in specific ways that support awareness of our higher Self, awareness of other people, and help us live consciously and cooperatively. We will examine the science of well-being and higher consciousness and learn specific methods that enable the mind and brain to work together to reach higher levels of human development.
