The intent of our work is to help stimulate and support the rebirth and renewal of learning and education in America.
To achieve our mission, the Academy exists as a non-profit educational organization developing and disseminating a transformative curriculum and methodology – our learning field inquiry approach to learning – through an integrated set of programs, conferences, organizational practices and research. The over-arching intent of our work is to help stimulate and support the rebirth and renewal of learning and education in America. In the words of American poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti, we are seeking to foster a perpetual ‘rebirth of wonder’.
The Academy’s work is centered in the research, development and implementation of a particular model, or pattern, that we believe is fundamental to all learning – we call it the learning field. Our work and this model have grown out of our experiences as artists, educators and consultants.
Since the Academy’s incorporation as a 501(c) 3 in 1998 we have been actualizing this work through core trainings and ongoing seminars, workshops and consultancies in Sedona, Arizona, Big Sur, California, Santa Fe, New Mexico, New York, and Europe. The model continues to be refined through these programs and our ongoing engagement in the world.
