My Year for new perspectives for a culture of potential-enfolding

This post is also available in: German


Life is learning, learning is development, development is our future. LernKulturZeit (LearningCultureTime) is education for the 21st century and a model for a new teacher training. Meaningful knowledge and experience and at the same time studying of not-knowing.

Lernkulturzeit ImageIntention

We are learning to cope with all the challenges in a global world. LernKulturZeit is a time-space, to discover new perspectives of a changing society to a culture of potential-enfolding. The one-year, in-service training aimed at future designers who want to develop themselves in their potential and / or support others doing this, by allowing them to see people in a deeper way and lern to understand the complexity


The space for personal development arises in the group through strong cooperation, where we explore the potential of the human encounter for our development. The Transparent communication is the basis for a deeper understanding of our inner space and the expansion of our perception skills and relationship skills.

Pioneering models and methods as the Integral Model and the Theory U, Dragon Dreaming, Design Thinking, the Holokratie model, meditation and reflection techniques provide the participants with the necessary background knowledge and tools to act as a future-designer.

Some contents are specified, other flexible and follow the interests of the group, which contributes to self-organization for a design-principle of the training.

The broadening of perspective for a sustainable, globally oriented life takes place at inspiring places, „Future-workshops“, communities, ecovillages, … where we experience, what future looks like. Referents inspire with new thoughts. Monthly Online Impulses from Speakers contribute to inspiration and broadening horizons. It is always about inspiration instead of imitation. People who fully live their lives in their ways bring us in contact with the longing for your own potential.

Change processes in the interior and exterior are mindful accompanied by experienced team members, weekly triad sharing are an additional and valuable means of exchange and development of mediated methods. Participation is open to all interested potential future designers. It includes the basic training in the attitude of a coach and can be certified as a Lernkultur-Coach for potential-enfolding. Own projects, which are to be further developed this year are invited to be introduced.

The Moduls – flexible course-design

It held a total of 9 modules, a base module, 5 main modules and 3 electives. The elective modules and the base module are open events, the main modules are closed and only for the annual group.

Each participant of the annual group takes part in the base module, the 5 main modules and 1 elective module.  Elective Module 1 is mandatory for certification for learning culture coach.

Summer-Celebration and SINNPOSIUM are optional and provide the opportunity to participate in the organization of training formats to try things out and transmit  own experiences. The elective modules can be booked regardless of the year group.

Silke Weiss directs LernKulturZeit, co-leaders and speakers from the network of LernKulturZeit accompany the group for certain modules. Monthly online impulses of innovators complement the inspiration this year. Regular weekly replacement in buddy groups to communicate via internal and external processes keeps alive. Tasks to the modules, the work on their own projects and

a final presentation form the structural framework for the reflection of learning experiences and finally lead to certification as a learning culture coach
