PROUT_Matrix

PROUT Design Course

Dates: COMING SOON! 6 monthly meetings TBA
Time: 10 am – 12:00 pm Pacific Time
Tuition: $120 (limited income $60)

Ravi Logan, with instructional support from the PROUT Insitute, will offer for the first time – anywhere – a course that gives participants a practical experience of PROUT local development design. As more and more communities go into crisis, there will be an increasing need for people able to envision new approaches to development that allow all communities to thrive and ecosystems to heal.

The focus will be on basics, so extensive background in PROUT development theory is not needed. However, we are asking participants to have either taken or to have audited the Transformation Education course, “The Practice of PROUT,” or to get special permission to enroll. Students will participate in a design project; some work outside class will be required.

Neohumanism as Antidote to Conspiracy, Dogma and Exploitation

Date: Saturday, May 15, 2021
Time: 10:00 – 11:30 am Pacific Daylight Time
Cost: $25 (limited income $15)

Join Jason Schreiner for an informative and inspiring class. Our world is currently awash in misinformation and conspiracy theories that act as poisons to the human intellect, numbing critical thinking and obscuring people’s perceptions and understanding of reality. Powerful interests, including leading political leaders, are using such snake oil to manipulate people’s sentiments in support of policies and practices that benefit a few at the expense of the many, with disastrous consequences for society and life. Amid the resulting fog of confusion, distrust, division, and social conflict are the dogmas and structures of exploitation that perpetuate power, domination, and inequality. In this class we will use the antidote of neohumanism to purge delusion, unmask powerful interests, reveal exploitation, crush dogma, and illuminate pathways to a cohesive, constructive future.

This course explores the prehistoric and historic development of Tantra and yoga. We will first investigate how prehistoric cultures of Central Asia, the Indus Valley, Tibet, and India originated tantric practices. Next, we will explore the migration of Indo-Aryan peoples into India and the interface of their Vedic spiritual tradition with the indigenous Tantra. We will then look at Tantra’s relationship to Vedaism, Buddhism, and Hinduism. Exploring the history of Tantra and yoga will deepen your understanding of these powerful, life-fulfilling practices and appreciation of their relevance to the present.

These classes will give a vision of the political system needed for a new era in which political institutions serve people, communities, and the planet, and in which leadership is drawn from the best of humanity.
