Love as a Force for Social Justice is a great course to open up your mind and open up possibilities to look at the World with a pair of new eyes :-)
I've learnt so much about life and myself through this course-- and it's not even done yet, I wish I could rate it higher than 5 stars.
What basic principles form the foundation course?
Because we believe that what we do is important but that the way we do it is more important, we attempt to teach and learn according to a set of principles that will guide the content and processes of the course. These are: compassion, mutual learning, respect, transparency, trust, and truth.
What do I need to take this course?
An interest in social justice. It will be useful to have an open mind, willingness to hear different points of view, and a commitment to positive social change.
Access to the Internet. A stable internet connection will also be useful, as we may provide links to some resources to be found online.
Is there a textbook for the class?
The primary text that we suggest for this course is “The Art and Practice of Loving,” by Frank Andrews, PhD. We will make individual chapters available online during the course.
