The Virtual Course
Here you will take a dive-deep into Regenerative Leadership in your own space and time. Six pre-recorded video modules will take you through all the main concepts and frameworks of Regenerative Leadership. You will get access to all of these modules as soon as you have signed up. This comes with a workbook designed to help you take your practice deeper.
The Online Community
Here all students from Regenerators Academy are invited to discuss, share and meet each other. This also serves as a rich library of videos, podcasts, books and articles to inspire Regenerators on their journey. We also have the option to join a Telegram discussion group.
The Virtual Gatherings
We gather virtually at least twice a month for a year from January to December, 2023. In these sessions you will have the space to reflect and discuss the material of the course, meet fellow Regenerators from around the world, and receive interesting perspectives from regenerative pioneers. All LIVE sessions are recorded and can be accessed at any time.
This unique one-year long journey is a combination of an extensive deep-dive course in Regenerative Leadership, a virtual global community and stimulating co-created LIVE sessions.
The journey has been designed to help you develop a practice of Regenerative Leadership, test out new regenerative ways of working, leading and living, and meet others on the same path. This is a space for those that are longing to be part of building life-affirming, regenerative organizations and societies.
There are six core content pillars that in pre-recorded modules take you through key concepts, frameworks, insights, and business cases designed to strengthen your Regenerative Leadership practice. These six content pillars are the fixed structure of the Journey.
Regenerative Leadership lend inspiration from evolutionary biology, deep ecology, anthropology, sociology, theology, eco feminism, history, biomimicry, circular economy, adult developmental psychology, emerging leadership frameworks, permaculture, and so much more.
IN OUR LIVE SESSIONS...
We allow natural emergence to happen. In these sessions, we will collectively embark into unknown territory together, exploring themes month-by-month as we sense into our co-created field to explore what theme to target next. It could be a deeper exploration of the intelligence of nature, indigenous wisdom, the story of separation, more business cases, additional frameworks, or a personal sharing of our own exercises from the modules. In 2022 we had sessions on wintering, our role as future ancestors, ecosystem facilitation, radical honesty, collective intelligence cases, business case challenges, transformation alchemists and so much more.
IN OUR SESSIONS WITH GUEST SPEAKERS...
We ask our guests – the regenerative pioneers and practitioners – to offer wisdom designed to strengthen the capacity of Regenerative Leaders. The guest speakers in 2023 include Nora Bateson (Warm Data), Tre' Cates (nRhythmn), Andrew Winston (Net Positive), Kathleen Allen (Leading from the Roots), Tamsin Woolley-Barker (Teeming), Felipe Vilella (ReNature) and Leny Strobel (Decolonizing Sustainability) and Bayo Akomolafe (The Emergence Network).
Executives who understand that a regenerative business approach is the only way to move forward and the only way to future-proof their organization.
Intrapreneurs who are deeply passionate about sowing the seeds of inner transformation in their organizations, and long for a community to learn from, grow with, and be inspired by in terms of where to start and how to hold momentum.
Sustainability professionals who want to compliment their toolbox with an understanding of regenerative practice and frameworks simply because traditional sustainability frameworks are not enough.
HR professionals who understand their important role in transforming their organizations towards healthy, vibrant, living systems, with a focus on offering conditions for inner life to thrive within the organization. HR is short for Human Regeneration in the regenerative era.
Educators who understand that the legacy they leave is one where they have equipped their students to navigate the complexities of the modern world, and to redesign it towards regeneration. The world desperately needs teachers and professors willing to start integrating regenerative wisdom into their curriculums.

Project managers and team leaders who want to up-level their organizational approaches and frameworks into a mindset geared for the 21st century.
Students who feel their education isn’t prepping them to work or lead in the regenerative era.

A Journey that forever changed me.
"Some courses you easily forget and move on. But then there are a few that make such a profound impact on you that there’s a 'before' and 'after'. I’ve just been through such a journey, masterfully designed and facilitated by Laura Storm – an international beacon of regenerative light and inspiration. Laura is a true pioneer within Regenerative Leadership. During the course I was surprised, inspired, motivated, challenged and deeply moved"
- C-SUITE EXECUTIVE
Finding kindred spirits.
"Before starting the course I had questions like: 'Am I wrong?' 'Do I misunderstand the world?' 'Am I alone in the desert?' 'Where can I find likeminded people?' 'Where can I find frameworks and tools to apply it?' 'Where can I find vocabulary for what I feel, I see & understand?' All of these questions were answered during the course. Thank you for that. I learned to not be afraid of my own thoughts. Not to be afraid of imperfections (nature also is). Not to be afraid of believing in Nature"
- CHIEF STRATEGIST & CONSULTANT
Bringing wisdom back to your workplace.
“It has been highly insightful, extremely interesting, and very thought provoking – altogether a very inspiring course. I have talked to most of my friends, relatives, and all of my colleagues about it, and I hope to see the rings spread in the water. I was delighted to see how my boss decided to incorporate regenerative thinking into our new strategy”
- UN GLOBAL COMPACT, PROJECT MANAGER
Helped me break the mould.
"This was hand-down one of the best learning experiences I have EVER had! I cannot recommend this learning experience enough. I have connected with many peers on LinkedIn after the course and I also thought the application of the learning was genius. Too often learning is not applied, you broke this mould, and that made a real impact on me (plus I got loads of amazing ideas and insight). Thank you, truly a world-class experience"
- EXECUTIVE, LARGE MULTINATIONAL
Regenerators are constantly focused on weaving new regenerative ways. They understand that how they show up for themselves and to what extent they apply regenerative principles to their own lives deeply influence their ability to create regenerative ripples through their own actions and leadership.
The Regenerative Leadership Journey will focus on how we can create regenerative ripples in our own lives, projects, organizations and through our actions have a regenerative ecosystemic impact.
Indigenous wisdom keepers and efforts to regenerate land receive direct benefits of the financial capital generated: 10% (minus local VAT) of revenue is donated to regenerative projects with a preference for land regeneration and empowering indigenous voices. At its core regenerative wisdom is indigenous wisdom. It’s our responsibility to help these efforts to gain access to capital. At Regenerators Academy, we’ll publish a yearly overview with the projects and donations we’ve successfully given.
The Robin Hood Principle: Participants from corporations can donate a scholarship position directly through their payment to those that cannot afford participation. So every time someone from a corporation signs up, they immediately free up a scholarship position to someone without the financial means.
Guest speakers are financially compensated for their time and wisdom: Too often pioneers are expected to happily share their wisdom and knowledge without getting paid. In this course, they receive fair compensation for their time and wisdom.
Show up with the same energy you want more of in this world: What does this mean? It means that we do our best to honor cyclical living, compassion, and kindness in our work processes. We take the time to nourish ourselves so we can nourish others.

We offer the opportunity to join a Home Circle of six people to travel with for the year. We will design the groups, introduce you to each other, and offer a structure of reflective questions to explore together to better integrate new ways of being. After the initial introduction the Home Circles are self-organized. This way you get to journey with a smaller group in a way that allows you to create deep bonds, while also getting to meet all the other amazing humans on the journey during the breakouts in the LIVE sessions.
What will we cover in the LIVE sessions? What if I can't attend?
In our LIVE sessions, Laura prepare the theme based on what's most alive in the community. It could be a deeper exploration of the intelligence of nature, indigenous wisdom, the story of separation, more business cases, additional frameworks, exercises or yin-style reflective sessions. In our sessions with guest speakers, we allow the guests – the regenerative pioneers and practitioners – to offer pieces they feel called to deliver to us. All guests are ready to co-create and look forward to interesting sharing.
All sessions will be recorded and posted in the community - except of course for the breakout rooms which are private sharing between those that are there.
How is this journey structured?
This journey is designed with the intention of tapping into the alchemy of structure and emergence. This means that there's some elements that are fixed - the pre-recorded modules that are the known pieces of the puzzle that you dive into during your own time and space. The LIVE sessions on the other hand we collectively hold space for what wants to emerge. We dive deep together, share lessons learned, and express our reflections around the content pillars. Laura Storm will be the main space holder to guide and deeply sense into where we need to go next together as a collective.
How will I get to talk to fellow Regenerators on this journey?
During the LIVE sessions we will always have breakouts where you get to meet fellow journey travellers, in our virtual community you can discuss, share and meet your fellow travellers. For those that are interested we will help you get your own Home-Circle - smaller study groups of app 6 who travel and learn together in a self-organised way.
When do we begin & end the journey? How much time should I allocate?
We have the first LIVE session in January and then we have app. 2 sessions a month throughout 2022.
How much time to allocate really depends on how deep you want to take your practice. If you go through all the modules which I highly recommend it's a total of 15 hours of video sessions and then comes the suggestions for diving deeper and the exercises.
There are no rules. For some, the live sessions and the community deliver the most value; therefore, they may not watch all the modules. That’s fine too – you’ll take what you need from this experience and can always go back and watch a module that we referred to in the live sessions if you wish to do so.
Can I get a student discount or a scholarship?
Yes, the price for students are significantly lower with the options of dividing payments into three segments. We also have the opportunity of applying for a scholarship. See further up on the page the link to submit application.
