Pre-Capstone Phase, Output Packet 5, Section 1302

Published August 1st, 2015

Specification

In my first year at Gaia University I made tremendous progress in my personal and professional development. I had many amazing experiences, met many awesome people, and had many "Ah-Ha" moments. In my search for knowledge and connection I traveled from Oklahoma to New York, Kansas, Florida, Minnesota and Colorado. I read paradigm-shifting books, talked to experts in the field, and attended crucial courses and webinars. I moved to Boulder, Colorado where I got involved in organizations and began to work with people who will be instrumental in my capstone project.

The biggest change for me in this phase was a fundamental shift in consciousness that came from inquiring into my own mental and emotional landscape. I noticed issues that I needed to work on and took the necessary steps to heal and grow. From that work came an increased ability to talk and work with people, present myself with confidence as an expert in my field, and optimize my productivity by maintaining a positive attitude.

This output packet tells the story of my transformation through various experiences and projects. First is a review of the output packets I completed with summaries of projects and key outcomes from each. Next is a narrative story of my experience throughout phase one, concentrating on the shifts that occurred in how and what I think about the topics that are most important to me. Then there is a review of my progress in developing key skillflexes, which I broke down into a list of specific skills that I have been practicing. Next I listed supporting evidence of the key books, classes, people, and events that I experienced. Finally are process reflections on creating this output packet, as well as my entire learning pathway through phase one.

How to Read This Output Packet

There are six pages in this output packet that you can navigate to with the tabs on top of each page or the table of contents in the right column on this page. Most pages are set up with columns that you will want to read from top to bottom starting with the leftmost column and working right. Word counts for the sections that count toward the total word count requirement are listed in the right column on this page. The Pathway Review and Evolution of Consciousness pages are part of the Core Report. These sections are the most important and required reading for reviewers.

On the Pathway Review page each section heading is a link to that output packet that you can click on to go to that OP. The Prezi and XMind maps are embedded and can be navigated within the pages in this OP. If they don't show up correctly there is a link just below the media that will take you to a different webpage to view the content.
