“Introduction to Love School: Learning to End War”

Developing awareness for the oppressive systematic patterns of patriarchy, while exploring the foundations for a cultural shift in love and sexuality.

Overview

In this upcoming online course, Sabine Lichtenfels and Benjamin von Mendelssohn, co-founders of Tamera’s Global Love School, will be your guides in this learning journey. Today, more and more people are awakening to the need for transformative work, on the personal, social and political levels. Together, we’ll discover the relevance of dissolving jealousy, enlarging the vessels for love and releasing shame around authentic sexual expression.

At the core of the Tamera project stands the insight that there cannot be peace in the world as long as there is war in love. In this course, we’ll ask ourselves: What responsibility do I have for ending war? How do I find balance when experiencing the high voltage of love and sexuality? What tools can I use to free myself when I’m caught by jealousy, possessiveness, and fear? What social structures do we need to rebuild to allow for personal evolution?
