First Book Study in 2024: Transitions as Integral to Transformation

 Empowerment for Individuals, Groups, Communities and Beyond 

For early 2024, The Living Classroom hosts a Book Study Group-Class, beginning January 11, 2024, 6PM CTZ – 7PM CTZ. The Zoom sessions begin on Thursday January 11 and meet every other Thursday, through April 11. 

Two books have been chosen as texts for this online/Zoom course. Feiler’s book, based upon his own life transitions that proved transformative, as well as his research about the same,  is the primary text for the study. The Oneing Book is written from multiple authors, all of whom write from a soul infused wholeness perspective. 


  • Feiler,Bruce. LIFE IS IN THE TRANSITIONS; Mastering Change at Any Age. New York: Penguin Books, 2020.

  • Guerin, Vanessa, Editor. ONEING; TRANSITIONS. Albuquerque, New Mexico: Center for Action and Contemplation, 2023.


Our study of Transitions, with their potential for tremendously profound transformations was stimulated and flowed from our trademarked program, Nostos Seminars™. As we saw and our research confirmed, peoples’ awareness, sense of accountabilities, shifts from valuing violence as their preferred relationship patterns to realize their potential to create meaningful, sustainable interpersonal connections, and more important transitions occurred, one problem remained. This problem was very real. As a question, it loomed, “How shall we continue to live what we have learned in Nostos?” Our course on Navigating Transitions for Transformations was the result of this point being driven home with every Nostos course that has been offered. 

Our Beta testing of the course has received very favorable feedback. Please consider joining us for our first Book Study-Class on how Transitions can be a powerful path to transformations. 


Two of our newest Nostos Seminars™ Co-Facilitators, Keri Riggs, Dallas and Kondwani PhwandaPhwanda, University of Kentucky, join Linda Harrison and myself as we four interact to co-lead the study.
