Spiritually, culturally and philosophically aspects of Life

Three weeks Summer Course: “Humans, Life and Society”

How do we experience life in body and mind? What are our abilities and limitations as human beings? How are we influenced by our surrounding cultures and societies?


Seasons in Denmark at International People's College a folk high school in Denmark 6

During three – hopefully sunny weeks in Denmark – we will examine life from three different stands: spiritually, culturally and philosophically. We will journey inwards – learning different yoga and meditation techniques, participate in discussions about life trying to find out what ‘a good life’ means and reflect upon what it entails. We will also examine the conditions of life – learn about cultural and philosophical aspects of our existence while exploring the Danish culture and society going on excursions in Northern Zealand and Copenhagen.

During the Summer Course we will also reflect upon the Corona crisis, trying to get a deeper understanding of how the pandemic has influenced our lives. Has the crisis redefined how we approach, analyze, and interpret life? Maybe the pandemic can be seen as an opportunity for us to understand our abilities and limitations as individuals and collectively.

The main facilitors at the Summer Course is Claus Staal and Nikolaj Sahlstrøm, but other teachers at IPC and guest teachers will also be in charge of modules, lectures and activities during the three weeks.

Lectures, adventures, activities, and excursions will be the main components for three weeks that will hopefully become the highlight of the summer.
