Our Educational Approach is as important as the contents of the course. Proper content with inappropriate educational practices will not bring about the result of empowerment and awakening we aims for
Contemplative: Meditation, mindfulness practice and time in silence are intergrated in to the learning experience. From a Buddhist perspective, right mindfulness is the most important key factor for awakening.
Participative: Participants/students and facilitators/teachers co-create the body of knowledge together. This means in practice the sharing of authority in the learning community that we create during this course. Power sharing means empowerment; empowerment here means self-empowerment.
Reflective: Rigorious thinking and reflecting both individually and collectively on issues and experiences is a key part of the learning process. We emphasize learning how to unlearn and relearn as it is a critical component of being successful socially active buddhists
