Transformative learning involves experiencing a deep, structural shift in the basic premises of thought, feelings, and actions. The editors of this collection make several challenges to the existing field of transformative learningthe first is to theoreticians, who have attempted to describe the nature of transformative learning without regard to the content of transformative learning. The editors argue that transformative learning theory cannot be constructed in a content-neutral or context-free way. Arts-based research and arts-based teaching/learning practices are one example of such new educational practices. Education for the soul, or spiritual practices such as meditation or modified martial arts or indigenous peoples' forms of teaching/learning, is another example. Each article in the collection presents a possible model of these new practices.O'Sullivan, Edmund V. is the author of 'Expanding the Boundaries of Transformative Learning Essays on the Theory and Praxis' with ISBN 9780312295080 and ISBN 0312295081.
