Mahatma Gandhi’s Social Change Method: Equip Yourself to Make the Change you Wish to See
Schedule : October 1, 2017 through November 8, 2017- including travel (see below)
Certificate description: Mahatma Gandhi gave humanity a new method for how to shape our lives. This certificate will take you to his ashram to learn: “The difference between what we do and what we are capable of doing would suffice to solve most of the world’s problems.” This method achieved more than freedom for one-fifth of humanity. It was much more than a symbol-for people’s lives stepped toward equality.
In this certificate, you will learn skills to improve community life. Together, we will learn how words and actions are change-making tools: “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” This is also a course to experience Gandhi’s life-you will live in his ashram, eat as he did, study on the same mud floors where the Mahatma (Great Soul) taught. This is not a yoga course (though such courses are wonderful). This course will lead to understanding Gandhi’s assertion that “If I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.”
This course is offered by Future Generations University, taught by one of the university’s distinguished professors, Daniel Taylor. If you take it as an academic course, graduate level credits can be earned. This course also can lead into the university’s Master’s degree in Applied Community Change (see: www.Future.Edu).
