LAS 102 - Oh the places you’ve been; oh the places you’ll go

3 hours
In this seminar, we will explore the tension between where we come from (in terms of heritage and home) and where we’re going, between who we are in a community (a family, a friendship, a classroom) and who we are as individuals, and between our pasts and our futures. To paraphrase Greek philosopher Heraclitus, we will never step in the same river twice, for it is not the same river and I am not the same person.  So, using Thich Nhat Hanh’s Living Buddha, Living Christ as well as a variety of other sources (prose, poetry, music, video), we will look at the process of becoming ourselves and of belonging in a constantly changing world.
