After co-teaching the Map Your Life and Social Mapping courses at Drexel University many times (in the classroom and online) and reviewing encouraging feedback from a wide range of students, I came to this conclusion. If the three courses become an integral part of systems of imparting knowledge in the U.S.A. and abroad, it would soon be discovered that an emphasis on empowerment and freedom from illusions, prejudices, self-limiting ideologies, and other forms of conceptual imprisonment would lead to profound enlightenment and development of individuals in our society and beyond. We would be spawning a mental revolution and, ultimately, a global “we the people” social movement that will change our way of living in the world – a ground-up way that is meaningful, joyful, and peaceful — a way that would lead to the cure of humankind’s systemic condition.
As such, The Mazeway Project is moving forward with these goals in mind:
- Encourage colleges and universities worldwide to add the Map Your Life, Social Mapping, and MetaVisioning processes to their curricula.
- Pursue getting the mazeway courses taught as MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) that are advanced by educational platforms: Coursera, edX, and Udacity and FutureLearn. The MOOC platforms combined involve 800 universities, offering 9,400 courses, to eighty-one million students, for little or no tuition.
- While our current focus is on having colleges and universities add these courses to their curricula, our long term goal is to introduce the content of the courses, in much simpler terms, to K – 12 grades.
- Collaborate with other individuals and institutions interested in the goals of The Mazeway Project.
I hope those goals are satisfied quickly because humankind is probably in a race against time. That is, unless we address the basic cause of humankind’s systemic condition, conceptual imprisonment, we will continue to endure a highly problematic existence and run the risk of irreversible decline.
