The Transformative Learning and Change Program (TLC) at the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) is at the leading edge of articulating and developing a new kind of scholarship, a new kind of inquiry and a new approach to knowledge. Students explore truth, justice, spirituality, and the nature of profound experiences such as love, happiness, and mystical experiences. CIIS offers a truly holistic or integral education that investigates assumptions about Eastern and Western thought and situates our knowledge within a planetary context. Students at CIIS draw from literature, the arts, narrative methods, and spiritual traditions and practices and take the best from the old and go beyond it to create something new. The result is a far richer, respectful, and more complex understanding of the world in which we live.
