The "curriculum" focuses on areas that we see are missing in the current zeitgeist and institutional programs. We tune the interstitial spaces between, the woven fabrics on cultural translation, technological forces underlying the hype, and the broader cognitive biases of the modern age that disconnects us from the system view in favor of profit and self-interest. We're making a stand for a new paradigm of seeing. A contemporary dojo for a vibrant mind, body & spirit. An inclusive global temple for the best parts of ourselves to find refuge and cultivate the life we always imagined was possible. A place to convene, to become our most vital, awake and creative beings. Our spaces are spaces for "convivencia".
