What type of surrounding can best support us?
Where we are working and living from is in tune with the essence of what we are doing. We are now becoming friends with a wooden house in the dense forests of the Eastern Finland in Revonkylä, Joensuu. This place is a creative hub. Home. Host for shorter and longer events.
Living a countryside life brings us closer to nature - surrounded by vast forests, lakes and wild animals there is no doubt that in future our school will be built in a similar environment. We share house as a community, animals and humans, and keep exploring what makes it thrive, what are its challenges, how to be able to create fertile grounds for learning. Our everyday life is a continuous playground for dreams that we have.
Visioning is an important part of this process, but without planning and doing we would not be able to explore our ideas in practice. We also let ourselves rest when needed and celebrate in various ways the completion of our tasks. At the moment our core working group is experimenting with such topics as ///community structures / creative process / sustainability / compassionate leadership / self-discovery / somatics / gardening/// We are collaborating on several different levels, developing our operations and searching for a permanent place.
