This course addresses anyone who is interested in change, not the temporary change, but transformation at a deeper, sustained level; whether individual or collective. The course is structured to provide a basic knowledge of Psychology and Neuroscience before using a narrative biography of Mahatma Gandhi to elucidate the process of transformation. It does not look at Mahatma Gandhi's politics rather at the Man who left behind a model of transformation. We posit it in a scientific analysis here.
