Abstract

The purpose of study was to explore the change process described in The Shack using Mezirow's (1997) phases of meaning-making in transformational learning. Results suggest that transformational learning is a useful lens for examining the individual change process in the novel, and offers teaching opportunities in classes that explore personal and professional change in addition to courses that focus on adult learning theories and concepts.
