Skills – Ecological Thinking – Experience
The program we offer in keeping with L’Inc and its philosophy is based on Society and Environment, which is subdivided into the three areas: Self, Teamwork, and Experience. These divisions are reflected in our course selection, teaching style, and school-wide activities. The following is a detailed overview of these areas:
“I have always known that one day I would take this path, but yesterday I did not know that it would be today.” – Narihara
SOCIETY AND ENVIRONMENT – To be successful in the long run requires that learners connect their own goals and objectives with the social and ecological world within which we live. We assist students to see the larger picture of themselves within the world, and the changing nature of culture, business, politics and practice. This helps students develop a good sense of self acceptance, along with clarity of how they fit, and choose to fit, into the larger cultural and ecological world in which we live.
“To know that you know what you know, and that you do not know what you do not know – that is true knowledge.” – Confucius
SELF UNDERSTANDING – The key component of the learning system is you. If individuals do not have the personal capacity to be a learner, then it is unlikely that they will be truly successful in the long run. This requires an understanding and awareness of strengths and weakness, clarity of personal vision, an ability to be creative and curious, an understanding of others, and a sense of what your personal approach is.
“Feelings are spawning grounds for the most radical and daring of ideas…” – Audre Lorde
TEAMWORK AND COMMUNICATION – Students must be able to engage and generate passion in what they are studying. This requires an understanding of group dynamics, and the ability to communicate goals, methods, and processes of working together.
“The birth of the Self is always a defeat for the ego.” – Carl Jung
EXPERIENCE – at the end of the day we learn from the world around us. This level demands learners who can align individual and team efforts with their own goals. Students learn to bridge the theoretical implications of ideas and theories with their own interest in working in the world. This allows individuals to be successful in their present studies and in planning future educational and career objectives.
