COURSES

Every course offered in the School is a stand-alone course with its own theme, its own focus and its own transformative practices. They work together, with each course building on previous courses.

The School draws content from diverse sources and presents it in a structure way. In an inclusive environment, students will explore a different way of thinking and approach to life.
