9 Month Cultural Design Fellowship

Everything can begin with you. You are the foundation of any change that will happen in your society. ~ Thich Nhat Hanh

The fellowship is the deepest dive Springhouse offers, designed for adults ready to uproot their life and immerse in the Springhouse model of creating regenerative culture. The fellowship consists of deep self-work, study of ecological and social design principles, and on-the-ground application of these principles in either the Vitality-Centered Education Track or the Regenerative Farm Design Track.   

The Springhouse fellowship is an immersive program for adults who are:

  • Interested in creating regenerative culture through authentic, place-based work
  • Ready to commit to the journey of wholeness and personal development within the container of beloved community

Participants in the 2021-2022 fellowship will be considered founding fellows, as this is the first year of the program. Fellows will be instrumental in shaping the program and should expect the change and emergence that comes when creating something new!

Fellowship Tracks

All fellows will study cultural design principles and the Regenerative Farm Design and Vitality-Centered Education tracks provide an opportunity to apply these principles in practice. Fellows commit 15 hours/week to ONE of these tracks, in which they will be supported in applying their learning throughout the year, culminating in a final capstone project in which they will design and implement a life-giving project.

Springhouse Fellows are supported, challenged, and witnessed through:

  • One-on-one mentoring
  • Peer mentoring
  • Springhouse soul-centered adult programs
  • Weekly fellowship meetings
