Pioneers with a mission

In this pioneering project, children learn how to work together with nature - our biggest source of inspiration. Under the guidance and supervision of experts they will be supported to create their own seasonal projects which will be mainly related to reforestation, food production and circularity. Through the art of storytelling, (written, visual, digital, rhythmical, artistic, verbal) they will be encouraged to express themselves and to share their self-discovered wisdom with the world.

Task walks in nature, problem solving challenges, meditation, and breath work will be part of their daily structure. They will receive empowering tools that will help them to cultivate self love, critical thinking, and authenticity. Furthermore, they will practise compassionate communication, radical honesty, conflict resolution and do body & boundary work so they will be able to navigate resiliently and without fear through chaos, face challenges with grace, and transform shadows into light.

Family Focused

Including the families is fundamental to this community learning initiative.

There are monthly meetings in which we discuss organizational and logistical matters, plan fundraising events, brainstorm about content and discuss education and values.

The monthly women and men circles for the mothers and fathers (educators take also part) provide a space for more personal subjects to arise and for everyone to be witnessed in their process.

The Magical Mondays have been the highlight for the kids in our community learning project that we started in September 2021. We are excited to share some of our empowering tools with you and your children!
What we will explore:
full body yes and full body no
bodies & boundaries
communication
vulnerability within a group
What you will take home:
grounding, positive self-esteem, self confidence, communication skills, body wisdom, connection, healing & nourishment, empowerment

How will the day look:
We’ll start the day with a short sharing circle together with parents and children.
Then we’ll playfully explore through hands-on exercises our full body yes and our fully body no, work with our boundaries and learn healthy ways to communicate them.
After a shared lunch we will split up the groups. Through ‘stories as medicine’ both parents and kids can share in separate circles about their experiences.
Short closing circle with everyone.
Optional swim at the lake and free time
