A SCHOOL IS BORN
A vision and a pathway has arisen for a three year school of wisdom and compassion beginning in 2019. The past three New Zealand Bodhi Seeds retreats have shown us young people have vital gifts to share and that they are hungry for refuge.
“In the practical realm, Bodhi Seeds has been a time in nature’s wonder with less gurus, less hierarchy, less push to get somewhere other than here. It is gentle, has opportunity for wonderment, intimacy, patience, and joy! “ (Jaime Howell, after the last edition of Bodhi Seeds, 2018)
The school is a place for developing skills, mentoring, honouring and spaces to deepen into a lived experience of connectedness and belonging. Where priority will be given to the cultivation of the human innate potential for collaboration, cooperation and caring, strengthening their ability to respond skillfully, whole and compassionately to the challenges we currently face as individuals and society. It will be accessible, be caring, spacious and will have periods of community, silence and solitude. It will provide opportunities to offer and celebrate collective talents and giving service to the local community. All this in an embodied way, valuing the movement of the body and being in the body to explore the heart of meditation.
The school is called 'Immeasurable School of Wisdom and Compassion'. This is because life is immeasurable. You are immeasurable, love is immeasurable, the consequences of attending the school will be immeasurable. By stating this we commit ourselves to openness and possibility.
In its structure, it is a retreat with at least one month of duration, that will take place over 3 years in different parts of the world.

We are offering it to young adults (20-35 years) who are essentially motivated to offer, discover and empower their talents and direct their energy to contribute to the cultivation of an even more affectionate, awakened, wise and compassionate humanity.
