The Secret Path and Its Eight Laws: How Individuals Can Change History

Dec 07 - 12 Begins in 2 weeks
with Stephan Schwartz

The Secret Path is a participatory workshop grounded in the relationship between individual and social consciousness. It presents historically documented accounts of the way that individuals and small groups have actually changed history in socially positive ways, without the destructive fallout of social breakdown and violence. It teaches a pragmatic approach to individual and social transformation grounded in the peer-reviewed science of social outcome measures and individual neuroscience, without either religious or ideological bias.
