Experiential Learning

From mentors, sages and by example, our own and others, we learn lessons, gain wisdom and enrich our lives.

This component of education is about our ‘experiential values'.

Viktor Frankl speaks of three chief groups of values: ‘Creative Values', ‘Experiential Values' and ‘Attitudinal Values'. “This sequence” says Frankl, “reflects the three principal ways in which man can find meaning in life.” In the case of ‘Creative Values' he is referring to what one gives to the world in terms of our creations. ‘Experiential Values', are about what we take from the world by way of encounters and experiences and lastly, through our ‘Attitudinal Values', we take a stand to our predicament in case we must face a fate, which we cannot change. (Frankl, 1969, p70)

It is education through experience; it is education through encountering someone, some group or something.

This portfolio will identify, source and highlight those individuals and groups who have and are living examples of logo-life and philosophy. By sharing their stories with us they might discover meaning in their lives, while at the same time, share their lessons, wisdom, ideas, thoughts, talents and abilities for the greater good of the community and society. Their ‘legacy' will inspire others to live likewise.

What is a legacy?

  • Legacy is fundamental to what it means to be human.
  • It is a gift to someone and as such immediately offers the opportunity of self-transcendence, a cornerstone and guidepost to discovering meaning!
  • Legacies are about life and living.
  • They are about learning from the past,
  • Living in the present, and
  • Building for the future.

An interconnection across time, with a need for those who have come before us and a responsibility to those who come after us.

So, if you feel that you have a story to share, if you are living a meaning-filled life or if you know someone who is and does, I would very much like to talk to you.

Meaningful quotes

When we understand that man is the only animal who must create meaning, who must open a wedge into neutral nature, we already understand the essence of love. Love is the problem of an animal who must find life, create a dialogue with nature in order to experience his own being. Ernest Becker
