Finding Your Way
This is our core service. We engage you in a series of individual relational meetings or extended email exchanges designed to help you articulate your understanding of what it means to be human, surface your interests, relationships, and capacities, and identify your comparative advantages and core constituencies (existing and potential), your particular calling and value propositions. We will then help you develop a long range plan for living an economically sustainable, civically engage, meaningful life grounded in freely chosen meanings and values.
Depending on your interests and the specific package you choose, we may also use standard psychometrics, joytish (Vedic Astrology) and other methods to help you discern your specific calling.
Whether or not you engage us to help you find your way, we will also review cover letters, resumes, c.v.’s, and other positioning documents to help you present yourself, your vision, and your value proposition in a way that is compelling to your core constituencies.
The clerici vaganti of the Middle Ages were wandering clerics (and therefore scholars) who lacked a permanent benefice to support them and lived by itinerant teaching, poetry, music, etc. Today’s intellectual reserve army of scholars, teachers, and organizers trained in the humanities, the social sciences, and the sacred and political sciences for whom Capital has no use and who live as adjunct faculty or other contingent occupations, or rely on work outside their calling in order to survive find themselves in a similar situatoin. We aim to build a guild of such individuals which can provide them with mutual support as they seek to live an economically meaningful, civically engaged, meaningful life, and to advocate for their rights in the academy and elsewhere.
For those who are interested in exploring further what it means to be human, where we are as a cosmos, an ecosystem, and a civilization and where we might go, or who want to cultivate particular skills in the liberal arts and the sacred and political sciences, we offer the opportunity for private study, both individually and online.
