Meaning Making at the Edge of Chaos: A Transformative Experience

The pressing social problems we have are demanding that we build our capacity for meaning making to address them effectively. Meaning making at the edge of chaos is the type of meaning making we engage in when our current worldview is profoundly challenged by new information and experiences and, when the world is complex and chaotic, we are continually challenged and disoriented. This experiential session introduces the concept of meaning making at the edge of chaos and its theoretical basis in transformative learning theory, logotherapy, constructive developmental theory, complexity theory, chaos theory, and complex adaptive systems. Participants will have an opportunity to share experiences of meaning making at the edge of chaos and explore the wider implications of creating opportunities for such experiences. The focus of the session will be from both a scholar and a practitioner perspective.

Format: Experiential Session
