Lightschools Academy is the place for lightschool teachers & connectors to learn and develop themselves and their profession. The Potential Development Profile is central to Lightschools Academy. We expect you to take your autonomy to find your way and demonstrate that you meet this profile.

Lightschools Academy offers authentic and profound training to support and guide you in your authentic journey. Lightschools Academy offers several modules, with sound preparation, follow-up for integration after the training and supervision.

You will find your way of living, learning and teaching in this day and age, while uncovering your true interests and potential. You decide when and whether you follow certain modules, depending on your needs and wishes at the time. Our teachers can advise you where necessary.

Levels

All modules are 1-week retreats* with their own goals in terms of personal and professional development. Our teachers are committed to provide open, holistic and inspiring education. Within the modules there are different themes. Every theme builds on the previous. Within every theme there are two levels that create a balance between inner work and outer work:

Lightschools’ aim is to build a new education & innovation ecosystem together. To make that happen we empower local lightschools and the global network with:

Shu Ha Ri

SHU

what does this theme mean for me?

HA

what does this theme mean for my acting as a teacher or connector, guiding others?

RI

is the third level and not part of the modules

In the third ‘Ri’ level the teacher as well as the others, flourish personally and collectively from a balance in the different themes. This will be a natural result with practice. Gaining experience in practice is therefore a requirement from the first moment onwards.

*The Pre-Lightschools Training is not a 1-week retreat. It is an Essentials training that can be attended both online and offline

WHY 1-WEEK RETREATS?

We believe that a retreat is the most profound way to enable transformative experiences. It allows you to pull back from the world, get inspired, lose fear in a safe space and take the time and space to really listen to yourself. It is, however, not only a bonding moment with yourself, but also with others going through a similar journey. Besides, we believe one week to be an acceptable time to take off of your regular activities, and to be able to reintegrate after returning home.
