Naturakademin Learning Lab
Sustainable development requires a knowledge and understanding of human nature and motivation, as well as of life’s conditions on a planet with finite resources. In addition, it requires consensus and cooperation to address the mutual threats facing it and to ascertain its possibilities. Naturakademin Learning Lab offers effective methods and tools forConscious Leadership, strategic cooperation and innovation for a desired future.
The inner compass – In a world where the rate of change is constantly increasing and old truths are broken against new ones the need to have a solid foundation becomes all the more crucial. It requires for us to have a calibrated, inner compass. To know ourself, to go inward and be observed. This applies to both individuals and leaders, as well as organizations.
Learning Lab is a safe and co-creative process where the diversity of perspectives, competences and experiences reverberate from one another, providing the conditions to address complex questions and dilemmas. This leads to transformative lessons in individual and organizational development.
Naturakademin Learning Lab – History tells us that “Academia” was a forest outside Athens where Plato went and conducted educational dialogues about life’s biggest questions together with his students. Dia- means “through” or “flow” and – logos means “logic” in Greek. The word dialogos is a prerequisite for consensus, and thus cooperation. Studies show that success and efficiency often rises or drops depending on the quality of the dialogue. Reflection in solitude has, during human history, been an important method for reaching insight and enlightenment. Naturakademin offers this via the programs Conscious Leadership and Nature Quests for personal development. Transformative organizational and societal development is offered through Learning Labs where tools for reflection support urgent questions, both for individuals and the group. If we have the opportunity we can choose to employ nature as both a classroom and a teacher.
Our vision is to contribute every day to the work of a sustainable and fair world where development takes place in harmony between humans, society and nature.
Our broder Vision – ”A human being is part of the whole ca/led by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison f or us,restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our rask must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circ/e of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
In our vision people learn in and from nature, we let ourselves be inspired to new exciting developments and innovations from the genius of life and nature. With this attitude we begin to respect, revere and be thankful for life for generations to come. In our vision we all have, through our insight and knowledge about how everything is interconnected and all of our need of each other comes from the optical illusion of which Einstein wrote:
– ”widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty…”
