– Adam Kayce, “What’s Your Learning Edge“
I’m heading back to Dalhousie University in September and plan to pursue a degree in psychology. I need to get the intro classes under my belt before diving in to the more focused program, so I had some space to pick classes I have some interest in outside of psychology. I’ll be studying Spanish, philosophy (logic: deduction), politics (freedom and government), English and, of course, psychology and neuroscience. I’m very excited to be back in an academic environment. As much as I would never have learned and developed in the ways I have if I had stayed closed in school, there’s a lot to say for the structure and focus it can offer.
In the meantime I’m always reading across a wide spectrum of disciplines. My focus recently has been marketing and communication in general. I’m very interested in learning to be more effective in conveying the bits of wisdom and knowledge I have access to, so I’ve been reading up on blogging strategies. Finding a way to merge depth and span is a thrilling challenge.
I have some constant learning experiences that I stick with. My meditation practice is always allowing me to discover new twists and turns in my innerworkings. My resistance training gives me a better appreciation and knowledge of my body even as it strengthens my muscles. My relationships disclose more mysteries than I could count and I learn more about myself and others in the maze of We space.
What’s next? I am weighing options for where to deepen my meditation practice. I’m trying to choose between the Zen and Shambhala centres here in Halifax, and it’s more difficult than I anticipated.
