Life Methods Curriculum

Religious, intellectual, and social life methods

When the Academy was launched in 1968, it included religious, cultural and methods courses. Three types of methods were taught: Intellectual, Social and Spirit, seeding much of the work of the Institutes and resulting in a rich harvest today. The outline of  the 1969 LIFE METHODS COURSES  evolved over the years and now includes the methods shared in the nine collections of the Global Archives. Various course outlines, early talks, methods, and workshops follow.
