Worldview Explorations - Workbookby Katia Petersen, Marilyn Schlitz, and Cassandra Vieten

The Worldview Explorations Project™ (formerly Worldview Literacy Project) is an educational initiative that has grown out of four decades of research by the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS). Our research to date suggests the most powerful step people can take toward achieving their highest potential is the willingness and ability to understand new perspectives. The following products are outcomes of this project.

Worldview Explorations – Facilitator Guide

The Worldview Explorations™ Workbook accompanies the facilitator’s guide to support learners through multiple activities to engage in a profound and rich exploration of their own, others’ and our collective worldviews.

Worldview Explorations – Conversation Cards
