October 20, 2018 - The official opening of The School of Practical Awareness in Lilleoru
We just celebrated the official opening of The School of Practical Awareness.
2018 has been an important milestone, marking a year when our activities for over 25 years led to the opening of a new school. This unique school is dedicated specifically to learning how to use awareness as an active tool in daily life. The representative of the local county Mark Võrklaev stated in his speech: "We are honored to accommodate such innovative and pioneering movement." As a founder, it has been heartwarming to know that while construction work lasted over 5 years, the house has been built entirely by students and volunteers in support of a greater cause. The School of Practical Awareness is located in Estonia (EU), Lilleoru - the main center where I teach and also the home base of The Art of Conscious Change, a signature method that enables people to upgrade their lives to the new paradigm based on consciousness.During the event, Siiri Sisask, one of the most beloved Estonian singers gave a concert that was a perfect match to the new school - deep in meaning and powerful in energy.
The schoolhouse has been built by more than 1000 volunteers, with construction work spanning over 5 years. The building is made of straw-bale bricks, being the biggest of it's kind in Europe and the only public straw-bale building in the world. Volunteers contributed with 40 000 + hours of work, supporting the mission to create the world's first school where people can learn practical application of awareness.
During the welcome speech, I explained the difference from other approaches with a seemingly similar cause: "I do not teach how to overcome problems. I teach how to become absolutely free from them."The doors of the School are now open for all. Welcome!
