Definition cocoon

Transformative Learning is a “deep, structural shift in the basic premises of thought, feelings, and actions” that “dramatically and irreversibly alters our way of being in the world” (O’Sullivan, 2002). Distinct from the cognitively-focussed viewpoints like those of Mezirow or Wilber, the definition that grounds our Transformative Learning Centre is collective, embodied and addresses spiritual, emotional and social justice needs for all members of Earth community. It is a definition that is always emergent, grounded in hope and daily practices and is increasingly more inclusive.
