…I will gaze at the seeds I planted

The corners of my mind were filled with ideas and expectations, of how I thought the Academy was going to function and evolve. None of them came out the way I predicted. Every little thing placed in the “Universe” was a creative masterpiece in itself. Formed of major creativity and relevance for development of the mind, every item, every soundscape, every performer became highly important. Every morning when I woke…

My experience

It was a very slow learning method and you had a certain mode that was affected by the staff members. Sisters Academy was a really wired experience, this abnormal universe that was created by two sisters who thought and believed in a more sensuous way of learning. There was music or some sort of sound in every single class room which could be very disturbing at least for me. I…

My feelings about Sisters Academy

In the weeks of Sisters Academy we explored the different ways of learning, through a very sensuously and esthetic way. There were a lot of different oppinions about this way of learning, some didn’t get a shit out of it, and some others really extended their horizon and learned a lot both in school and about more existential issues. In my oppinion both things are equally important! I think the…

My opinion about sisters academy.

Sisters academy is a special place, a special way of learning. This Is how I experienced, this very different universe. When I first walked into this universe, I was a day late. I had been ill, so all of my classmates had already experienced some of the universe and could tell me a lot about it. I attended the morning assemble and boy was that weird! I felt like I…

My essay about Sisters Academy

When you are isolated in a universe, totally opposite to your everyday life, with all your schoolmates, all your teachers, all in same level, prepared to get inspired, challenged, something happens, something moves. If it is not your learning, it is your ability to learn. If not your excitement about Sisters Academy’s universe, then your excitement towards your daily school’s universe.  But definitely you will move. It is difficult to…

My experiences with Sisters Academy

When I think back at my time at Sisters Academy, 3 things comes to my mind. The first thing is about learning. The Sisters Academy was an educational experiment, to see if students could learn more in another environment. I think my conclusion must be, that people are learning in a lot of different ways. Some learned more than the usually do, but others didn’t learn anything at all. I…

Keep Reading.   Intense I have in two weeks been inter-activated and learning in a different environment than usually, a very different environment. It was infected by the staff and…

How much will you risk at the academy?

After having finished the two-week manifestation, it occurred to me that focus seemed to slip among the teachers’ faculty – from being immerged in the sensuous universe with all the industrious, imaginative, playful thinking and experimenting which it entails to staying in the teachers’ backstage all the time – except for teaching hours and conference. Maybe people sought refuge from speaking an awkward English, or from being confronted with the…

Provoke the teachers!

Why is it so, so important to compete? I know this is my own agenda and I will try to leave that out to give room for The Real…
