Gatmon, Anna
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, California Institute of Integral Studies
This study focuses on documenting and analyzing the experience of eight adults as they engaged in an adult education program that focused on developing and enhancing their capacity for spiritual knowing. Situated in adult learning theory and practice, the methodological approach chosen for this study was qualitative instrumental case study. Four distinct types of experience relating to the phenomenon of spiritual knowing were identified, each with its unique qualities and felt experience: knowing Spirit, identifying a spiritual state, receiving guidance, and action imbued with Spirit. The outcome of the study is a proposed model that can serve to engage adult educators and learners in a conscious cyclical process of developing spiritual knowing.
