Growing Wisdom

Wisdom in doing, and doing in wisdom

We believe that wisdom is gained through experience. Applying what you've learned is everything. The Applied Wisdom Institute is a practice-based training ground for gaining spiritual awareness and preparing for social action. We challenge our students to grow through hands-on learning and cross-pollination of ideas with others in diverse cohorts. With every module, seminar, or certificate, you will reach new depths of understanding and new heights in your ability to create change. This is an educational space for people who feel a deep resonance in their soul to leave the world a better place than they found it.

Spirituality and Interconnectedness

Often wisdom, spiritual awareness and ethical action are not fully appreciated for their impact in individual and organizational success. Consequently, they are rarely taught. However, we believe that doing well for others does well for the whole, and spiritual awareness is critical to that end. Awareness of the meaningful connections we all share allows us to collectively build and transform communities. In the Applied Wisdom Institute's approach, thought leaders model how spirituality can initiate and sustain positive change.

Expand your network

The Applied Wisdom Institute is a home for the people who care about others in the world. Wisdom is gained through active discussion within the community, between students and thought leaders. We are intentionally creating a community of people who engage in this important work — people who understand when to speak and when to listen.Top scholars and fellow students will share not only their intellectual capital, but their real-world experience in creating an online and face-to-face experience of shared competencies and likeminded visions to make us all better. The goal is the creation of a network of connected and caring people who support one another on their respective journeys into spiritual awareness.
