Global Love School
We host the annual “Global Love School” where we invite a committed circle of cooperation partners – peaceworkers and leaders from around the world – to learn how to deal with questions of love and sexuality, both in their personal and public lives. Started by Sabine Lichtenfels and Benjamin von Mendelssohn in 2012, it’s become an important basis for developing and deepening our network for the Healing Biotopes Plan.
The Global Love School (GLS) is a platform for a growing planetary community. It’s designed as an annual gathering of 7 to 10 days where participants can share their core issues in the areas of love and sexuality, work together to bring about healing in these topics and develop a common ethical commitment for personal and public conduct.
In the opening talk of the GLS 2012, Sabine Lichtenfels said, “Love and sexuality are political issues. There’s an emergency call on Earth to end the war in love. Those participating in the GLS agree that one reason for the violence and unresolved issues of our civilization lies in misdirected, blocked and suppressed love and sexuality. In the GLS, we’re looking for answers that go beyond the personal, answers that are global in their implications.”
We invite cooperation partners, teachers and therapists working with the issues of sexuality and love, leaders of fellow communities, as well as activists and peaceworkers. Especially for leaders, it’s often hard to continue making progress on their own most intimate issues and to get truthful feedback from others. To keep the GLS intimate enough, it isn’t an open seminar, but on invitation only. We ask for your understanding. We also offer open Love School seminars.
- to have participated in one of our Introduction Weeks, so that the context of building a whole new culture in which our work on healing love and sexuality takes place is understood in the necessary depth,
- to commit to attend the GLS for at least three consecutive years, so that the trust and understanding needed to go deep and bring about lasting transformation can develop.
