New Adult Educator

Develop an understanding of the principles and processes of the New Adult Learning.   Practice the three paths of individualized and independent knowledge, ongoing transformation, and creativity.  Further your abilities to facilitate learning and offer mentorship from a deeper level. Join a forum of educators advancing the art of personal, professional, and community development.

The New Adult Educator curriculum follows the learning paths developed by Coenraad van Houten, author of Awakening the Will, Practicing Destiny,  The Threefold Nature of Destiny Learning, and Creative Spiritual Research.

The Sevenfold Path ~ Path One

Learn and practice the principles and processes of the sevenfold learning path, which moves from self knowledge to a wisdom-filled worldview and onto newly awakened creative forces for life.  Develop your skills of facilitating selfless observation, independent thinking, inner practices, and conscious living. Movement, nature study and watercolour painting.

Karma and Destiny ~ Path Two

Step into the heart of transformational learning and discover that each human encounter holds the potential for revealing past karma and future capacities.  Develop the heart as the central spiritual organ for your destiny. Facilitate the path of the middle between the self and the other. Movement, nature study, pastel exercises.

Creative Spiritual Research ~ Path Three

If karma and destiny are the heart of transformational learning, then Creative Spiritual Research is the crown.  Support individuals as they recreate themselves. Ignite a conscious relationship to their life intentions and individualizing human spirit.  Accompany them as they become co-creators of the new spirit-inspired culture. Speech, nature study, veil painting.

Prerequisite:  Participants are required to have completed a Connections or My Child Myself Program or other self-development course.  Readings are required for each session and available upon enrolment.
