Ontological Courses

Once someone who wanted to participate in a course asked me how did he know my course was good, or even how was he to recognize a good one?
I told him finding that out costs money and time, like when you look for some good car mechanic with self-respect and integrity, who does not want to cheat on you.
Of course there are courses to fit any intellect or concerns and that should be so; there are people of different intellects and you do not discuss quantum physics with someone who only wants life “a little better”.

connie_cursuriThe methodology I use in the courses I lead and coaching is called ontological. The word “Ontology” comes from the Greek ‘onto’/being and ‘logos’/study, meaning ‘the study of being’
Contemporary ontology is concerned with the nature and function of being. As a result of ontological courses and coaching one is left with a transformed experience not with a volume of information that need to be applied in order to have the experience one wishes to have.

When you have a good content and a good methodology, the next thing you look at is the person delivering the content.

I will quote Shri Dayananda Saraswati (Bhagavadgita – Home Study, Volume 1) to say that if you see that all a teacher (leader, coach, trainer, etc.) can do is give you:

a collection of words…. You do not require a teacher. You need only a book and a dictionary.

 The teacher you require is one who employs these words and makes them meaningful. To do this, a teacher must necessarily be free from being insecure so that he or she is not seeking recognition or security.

 The proof of a teacher’s knowledge is

  • in the teaching methodology,
  • in the person’s communicative ability and
  • the content of what he or she communicates.

Thus, you go to a teacher who is

  • well-informed in this teaching and
  • one who is committed to it,
  • one who has no other pursuit.”

Bhagavadgita – Home Study, Volume 1, by Swami Dayananda Saraswati

When there is content and methodology one needs to look if the person delivering manifests the content in his/her own life and does not talk from books, so to speak; in other words one looks to see if the person is authentic.
