Education itself creates culture. It is how we embody, pass down, and share wisdom. Springhouse practices vitality-centered educational design. The purpose of this design is to grow and maintain vitality to create a more vital culture. This design intentionally takes care of and fosters vitality in a person, community, and place, eventually growing a culture that thrives.
Education is not school. Education occurs constantly; it is how we learn and live. “School” is a particular context where education occurs. We all go through “school” in some form as we go through childhood, adolescence, and, for some, even further, which means that education is the greatest cultural leverage point we have to create regenerative culture.
At Springhouse, school is the place where we support the vitality-centered development of an individual and a community. It is where we learn how to be builders of regenerative culture.
