In this foundational unit, students will come to understand the ongoing dialogical relationship between the sacred Scriptures of all religions, the universal wisdom traditions, philosophy, psychology, art, and poetry. All of these contribute to the wisdom way of knowing. In this unit, the Hebrew and Christian Scriptures will create the foundation and the template for discerning key wisdom themes. Students will explore The Perennial Tradition
without simply being syncretistic and while examining the criteria for being intellectually and philosophically consistent. Together, students will also hone their process and practice more than proving conclusions; orthopraxy is our frame for orthodoxy. Students will attend one of four possible intensives. See the Living School Calendar
for the intensive dates from which to choose.
