29 Apr - 03 May - 08:45 - 17:30

The first week of Open Master’s is aimed at teaching the tools used in Open Master’s and framing it for use throughout the YIP year. The second week will be designed and hosted more specifically for the participants moving out into the world after YIP.

Course title and short description:
The Open Master’s course on Becoming develops habits and practices for designing your own learning and action around the person the world is asking you to become, grounded in continually-deepening self awareness of your why and your mission, tools and practices for ongoing reflection and integration as you go, and methods for building in peer coaching and community support throughout each season of the journey. The course builds the foundation for clear and strong agreements, together, about the kind of learning community you strive to be, and for each learner, with themselves and their peers, about the learning they are called to explore. Afterwards, learners have the tools to carry on the journey, on their own, far beyond the course and program itself.
