Community Course

    This 4-week course will guide you through the essential learnings of community based on the Healing Biotopes Planthe global peace plan at the heart of our growing international network. You’ll study and experience how a group based on truth, transparency and trust can develop, explore the revolutionary relevance of building community,  and find out in which larger frame and embedment our most intimate questions can find real answers. We invite you to begin the journey as a peace worker by understanding and practicing the foundational ethics of community. Welcome to this evolutionary adventure!

    “If one wants to know how humankind functions, one should learn how a group functions, for a group contains all the light and shadow sides of our human existence within it.”
    Dieter Duhm, Terra Nova: Global Revolution and the Healing of Love

    Program Details

    Join fellow students from different countries, united by the decision to walk the path of education to become peace workers. During these 4 weeks of all-day intensive learning, you’ll get a sense of what shifting from a private to a communitarian way of life means. Living together with each other, practicing transparency, self-knowledge, feedback and solidarity, challenging ingrained habits of misguided individualization within ourselves and studying prospects for a nonviolent culture on this planet, you’ll have the chance to experience a kind of trust you still might believe isn’t even possible. Be ready to let go of old habits and see yourself as the training and practice ground of the transformation you want to see in the world. You’ll thereby gain an insight into how you can collaborate in building a global “field” for a new peace culture.

    You’ll explore:

    • the “Healing Biotopes Plan,” or why, despite the unfolding global catastrophes, we still see a possibility for global healing,
    • the basic ethics of community,
    • the power of truth and trust for the basis of a new culture,
    • the foundational thoughts on freeing love and sexuality from fear, mistrust and suppression, moving from a world dominated by patriarchy to a radically new culture based on partnership and trust,
    • the role of art in discovering a life outside of normality,
    • the universal healing power of life, which we call the “sacred matrix,”
    • the task of regaining inner autonomy for external autonomy.

    Our program will include:

    • presentations and Q&A sessions with leaders of the community,
    • study hours,
    • regular forum work,
    • art, theater, spiritual exercises and experiential spaces,
    • Love School,
    • morning attunements and karma yoga,
    • participating in events for the whole community, e.g. our Sunday matinée, the Ring of Power and Political Cafés.
