Free Course: Wisdom 101

Introduction (via Wisdom 101)

This free online course is about crafting full, rich, creative, and enjoyable lives for ourselves — lives that are significant, lives that contribute in some way to the world around us. The course is rooted in the idea that some steps toward wisdom require nothing more than a fresh look at common life situations, nothing more than an appreciation of the difference between skillful and unskillful ways of dealing with those situations. Its premise is that a few truths about everyday life, if pointed out and taken seriously, can make a significant difference in the quality of day-to-day living and our enjoyment of life.

The course consists of 22 lessons. Lesson 0 is an introduction to the topic of wisdom. Lessons 1 through 16 focus on the life-building process and on various challenges associated with daily living. In these lessons you will consider some skillful and not-so-skillful ways of dealing with these challenges, some wiser-than-usual ways of looking at these situations, and some perspectives that just might help move your life in the direction of greater wisdom.

Lessons 17 through 21 deal with ways of developing wise responses and attitudes toward life happenings, as well as some helpful ways of seeing and interpreting the data of life. The aim of these latter lessons is to guide us toward those all-win mind spaces that are enjoyable to experience, good for us, and indirectly benefit others.
