Class Overview

Few endeavors can be as worthwhile and rewarding as developing accurate self-knowledge. It can be tricky, though. We can want more self-knowledge, yet also fear what we might discover. Ignorance is bliss. It is easy to resist the hard work of consistent introspection. But fear not!

This class will teach you an actionable framework for building self-knowledge. The path toward self-actualization — toward becoming a Big Self — begins with the self. Not navel-gazing. Not selfish entropy. Not analysis paralysis. No, the journey of understanding the world, your place in it, how you interact with others, and their blind spots and strengths, is to understand your own blinds spots and strengths. The sum total of philosophic inquiry is said to have been summarized by Aristotle who said, “Know thyself.” We’ve also heard it similarly phrased as, “The unexamined life is not worth living.”

We advocate an approach to building self-knowledge that engages with what you’re feeling and thinking, not letting go. Through a series of exercises, guided conversations, innovative goal-setting techniques, and opportunities for self-candor, you will come away with a proven plan for ongoing self-development.
