The soon to be released book Living is Learning is the foundation of Lightschools, written by our initial creator Britt van Mensvoort. What started as a personal search by Britt, eventually became an in-depth study inspired by her transformational journey.
She places findings from various scientific disciplines alongside the thinking of philosophers of all times and traditional psychologies that the cultures of the world are rich. Through the connections she makes, Britt comes to a reframing of our humanity, time, health & happiness and our connection with nature.
In nine chapters she arrives at a new concept of living, learning and working in which there is room for everyone to flourish. Britt presents a growth model based on authenticity rather than financial capital, and a way to endlessly develop our potential.
Some of the topics covered in the book:
plants & animals
Living is Learning will be released in early 2021. To put the stories and concepts in the book into practice, we create 13 workbooks in line with Lightschools Common Principles. You can contribute to these workbooks! Do you want to stay informed about the book and how you can contribute? Register here to learn more and to be the first to be able to order the book.
