We are pleased to announce a new partnership between Goddard College and the Transformative Language Arts Network (TLAN) featuring the Your Right Livelihood (YRL) professional training program, September 25th – December 14, 2019. This training consists of a weekend retreat in Arizona September 25 – 27, followed by a 10-week online course, weekly video-conferences with visiting teachers, and one-on-one coaching with Laura Packer and Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg, the YRL facilitators.
Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg is the founder of the Transformative Language Arts concentration at Goddard College, former Kansas Poet Laureate, writing and Right Livelihood coach, and a long-time community arts project innovator and consultant. Laura Packer is a widely-acclaimed storyteller, non-profit and business consultant, teacher, coach, and real-time dreamer. Guest teachers including Harriet Lerner, Gregg Levoy, Donna Washington, and many others.
The program is for learners, both within and outside of Goddard, who are drawn to conversing with their life callings and developing their right livelihood, a term which speaks to how to create the work they love, and how such work relates to building resilient and creative communities. Your Right Livelihood welcomes change-makers and artists who are ready to make their hearts sing, create new ventures, and contribute to community well-being.
HOW THE GODDARD PARTNERSHIP WORKS: Goddard students sign up through the Transformative Language Arts Network.
YRL may be taken for three undergraduate credits when taken between semesters or in addition to a current study plan. When seeking 3 extra undergraduate credits beyond the work outlined in a study plan, learners will pay TLAN the YRL tuition and an extra fee to enable YRL facilitators to provide academic support. (Example- A student is already enrolled in a 15-credit undergraduate semester and they successfully complete both the semester and YRL for a total of 18-credits.)
When seeking to embed YRL as a learning resource within a graduate or undergraduate study plan, students participate in the YRL training course (and payTLAN the YRL tuition) and reflect on their learning with their Goddard advisor. The training becomes part of the student’s semester study activities. No additional credit is granted beyond the credit granted for a successful semester. Students embedding the YRL training into their semester study plan do not pay the YRL additional academic support fee.
