At La Foresta we are interested in what it means to live a fulfilling sustainable life, what makes us feel more alive, more connected to ourselves, each other and our surroundings. We are driven by curiosity and intuition, by the wish to learn and evolve, be inspired and enjoy life. La Foresta Academy is dedicated to questions of how do we want to live and create sustainable future, how do we change the mindset from the old “poverty and disconnection mindset” to a more wholesome, empowered, cooperative, genuine, reverent, creative, free, attentive, integral mindset, that recognizes the intrinsic interdependency of all living systems. The one that acknowledges that humans are integrated bodymind organisms, that we contain ecosystems within us and participate in the broader ecosystems of nature in an interconnected complex world, as well as recognizes that each of us needs to find our own unique path and way of being, which allows everyone to contribute to making life more meaningful and flourishing in their own way.
La Foresta Academy is currently a pilot project and will be launched in 2018. It is a nomadic space to learn for adults and children, for future makers and change-makers, dedicated to human creativity and sustainable living. We are interested in new ways of working, learning, thinking and being in the world, those that are based on attention and respect towards organic human development, as well as Earth's ecosystems. Our vision is to offer interdisciplinary learning experiences in different formats: workshops, labs, courses, and retreats. Our home base is Berlin, and action territory spreads across Europe. Learning experiences will be offered by La Foresta partners (multidisciplinary contributors from Projects and Woods in the city, as well as Woods in the City KIDS). More info coming soon. Stay tuned!
