Extended Profile

What do you (or organization) hope for in connection with a deep time perspective?

To share our story with like-minded individuals.

Short description of your (or organization's) current interest/work in an deep time perspective:

The Institute for Educational Studies (TIES) hosts two graduate programs through Endicott College in Beverley, Massachusetts. Started in 1996 our all on-line programs lead to an M.Ed in Integrative Learning or an M.Ed. in Montessori Integrative Learning.

From the outset we have created an eco-cosmological context that frames all student explorations. Learning takes place in a non-adversarial environment where faculty and students work together to establish a community of learners. Primary to this process is the practice of Dialogue as advocated by Davis Bohm and J. Krishnamurti. Some of the other authors explored are Thomas Berry, John Briggs, Fritjof Capra, Henryk Skolomowski, Brian Swimme, Francesco Varela, Meg Wheately.

Four epochs of evolution are introduced through sequenced narratives and photographs or graphic images that depict these emergences through time: The Epoch of the First Nine Billion Years; The Epoch of the Formation of our Solar System and Earth; The Epoch of Life, and The Epoch of Humanity.
