Life is a long process of growth, from the cradle to the grave. The spiral, a natural form, is the perfect metaphor for this. We learn in many different ways: individually, collectively and as a member of a family; we grow in different ways throughout our lives. Yet each step brings us closer to the centre of ourselves; the essence of our being.
At Green Spiral we have drawn inspiration from diverse practices and philosophies: those of free and active learning, compassionate communication, radical theatre, group and family system dynamics, organic agriculture and forest learning. We discovered all of these ideas at many points in our life´s journey – as young adults, parents and as community educators.
We get pulled in many different directions at once, but we learn to listen to our hearts and to move in circles around ourselves. Sometimes we expand outwards, making new friends and gaining new experiences; at other times we turn inwards towards our centre in order to deal with new challenges, love or loss.
And the best times of all? Walking in the spiral among good friends.
We´d like you to join us.
