Welcome to a year-long journey exploring Regenerative Leadership practice with a community of kindred spirits

REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED - REGISTER YOUR INTEREST IN THE 2023 JOURNEY BELOW

If you long for a community of Regenerators exploring how to redesign a thriving and regenerative way of living, leading and doing business on this planet - look no more.

We have created this unique 1-year journey as a combination of an extensive deep-dive course in Regenerative Leadership, Live sessions and a virtual community.

We wanted to offer you a safe space to deepen your practice and test out new regenerative ways of working, leading and living. We are here to hold space for and inspire those of you who long to be part of rebuilding organizations and societies based on regenerative principles. We guide you along a knowledge and self-exploratory pathway that enable you to become a regenerative leader and facilitator.

A deep-dive Course, a Community and Virtual Gatherings

Join the Journey before February 4, 2022 and join a unique community of Regenerators travelling together for all of 2022

  • The Virtual Course

    Here you dive deep into Regenerative Leadership in your own space and time. 6 pre-recorded modules taking you through all the main areas of Regenerative Leadership. You get access to all of these modules as soon as you have signed up. This comes with a workbook designed to take your practice deeper.

  • The Online Community

    We have our own community space that you will get access to right away. Here all students from Regenerators Academy are invited to discuss, share and meet each other. You can take part in whichever content topic interests you or start your own topic.

  • The Virtual Gatherings

    We gather LIVE 1-2 times a month for a year from January to December, 2022. All LIVE sessions are being recorded and can be accessed at any time. These sessions will either dive deeper into the topics of the modules or offer you interesting perspectives from regenerative pioneers. All LIVE sessions will give you the chance to discuss in smaller study groups.

Welcome to a journey that will help you broaden your perspective, open new dimensions, expand your horizons, and empower you to play a critical role in regenerating our societies.

The Journey Design

A DANCE BETWEEN STRUCTURE & EMERGENCE

We’ll cover a wide range of fields like evolutionary biology, deep ecology, anthropology, sociology, theology, eco feminism, history, biomimicry, circular economy, adult developmental psychology, emerging leadership frameworks, permaculture, and so much more.

There are 6 core content pillars that take you through a wide array of concepts, frameworks, insights, and business cases designed to strengthen your Regenerative Leadership practice.

These 6 content pillars serve as the fixed structure, our container, and the known pieces of this journey that we then combine by collectively embarking into unknown territory during our LIVE sessions. In the LIVE sessions you will also get a chance to discuss with your study group. 

 

IN OUR LIVE SESSIONS...

We allow natural emergence to happen.

We collaboratively 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. These sessions will also offer the opportunity to gather with your study group to discuss and dive deeper between you. 

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. The guest speakers include Giles Hutchins, Lyla June Johnston, Daniel Christian Wahl, Leen Gorissen, Michelle Holliday, John Fullerton and John Elkington. More will join as we journey along...

Do you want to be a part of the regenerative movement?

IF YES, THEN THIS IS FOR YOU.

For a regenerative transition to happen we urgently need executives, HR professionals, teachers, students, creatives, coaches, consultants, architects, NGO-leaders, politicians, city officials that dare blaze entirely new trails and rebuild our systems in regenerative and resilient ways.

Who is this course for?

  • Executives who understand that a regenerative business approach is the only way to do business going forward and the only way to future-proof their organization.

  • Intrapreneurs deeply passionate about sowing seeds of inner transformation in their organizations yet 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 wanting to compliment their toolbox with regenerative practice, understanding 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 organizations. HR is short for Human Regeneration in the regenerative era.

  • Teachers & Professors who understand that the legacy they leave is one where they have equipped their students to navigate complexities and redesign towards regeneration. The world desperately needs teachers and professors willing to start integrating regenerative wisdom into their curriculums.

  • NGO leaders & Community managers that sees the importance of ensuring NGOs are geared for the 21st century landscape and not lost in rigid bureaucracy and rigidity.

  • Consultants & Coaches who want to include a regenerative approach into their work and offerings to take their clients to the needed next level.

  • Architects & urban developers curious to explore how regenerative frameworks and approaches could improve their work in the field of urban regenerative design.

  • Project managers and team leaders wanting to up level their organizational approaches and frameworks into a mindset geared for the 21st century.

  • Students who feel their education aren’t prepping them to lead organizations into the regenerative era.

What is included?


As this is a journey into unchartered territories deliberately designed to allow for natural emergence to happen you will gain much more than what can be put into words at this stage.

But here are some of the things we can guarantee you:

  • Access to a unique community of kindred spirits on a similar journey. In our community we will share successes, failures, lessons learned, ideas and new inspiration to feel empowered and supported on our regenerative journey.

  • 6 carefully designed pre-recorded modules covering all the key elements needed for you to deepen your Regenerative Leadership practice. This includes recorded sessions, slide-packs and a workbook designed to create space for deeper contemplation and application.

  • A minimum of 20 LIVE virtual sessions (+40 hours of LIVE content) diving deeper into regenerative practice, business cases and insights. These will be facilitated by the course host Laura Storm and guest teachers who are all pioneers in the regenerative field.

  • Inspiration, thought-provoking ideas and best-practice cases from some of the leading regenerative thinkers and business leaders.

  • Access to a unique library of extra resources recommended for your continued journey: Videos, podcasts, books etc.

  • Access to all the modules, the recordings of the live sessions, the community space and other material for a year (minimum).

Testimonials from Previous Journeys

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 thorugh such a journey masterfully designed and facilitated by Laura Storm – an international beacon of regenerative light and inspiration. 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? Where can I find frameworks and tools to apply it? Where can I find vocabulary for what I feel, I see & understand? All those 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 imperfection (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, most of my 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 UN COMPACT, PROJECT MANAGER


Helped me break the mold.

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. So and too often learning is not applied, you broke this mold and that made a real impact on me (plus I got loads of amazing ideas and insight). Thank you, truly a world-class experience.

What We Cover in 6 Modules

  • Module 1

    MODULE 1: Why we need Regenerative Leadership

    Why is it that we urgently need Regenerative Leadership in the first place? What kind of landscapes are we all navigating within, what are the main challenges for regenerative leaders, and how can we deeply understand the interconnectedness of our challenges and cultivate a deeper understanding of our current context?

  • Module 2

    MODULE 2: Getting to the Root Cause: The Story of Separation

    We need to ensure that we don’t just fix things at a surface level but truly dare go to the root cause of our current challenges. We need to understand what created our current mess in the first place to apply the right kind of healing, solutions, and leadership. If we don’t dare explore this root cause and how the story of separation is infiltrating every corner of society, we’ll then inadvertently keep repeating the same mistakes, over and over.

  • Module 1

    MODULE 3: Learning from Nature

    Nature has 3.8 billion years of experience in designing life – why don’t we draw on that wisdom to build societies full of health and vitality? Knowing how nature designs thriving regenerative systems and solutions is of paramount importance for regenerative leaders. In this module, we will begin to explore nature's organizing patterns and principles which are the foundation for a regenerative way of designing, leading and being.

  • Module 4

    MODULE 4: The Role of the Regenerative Leader

    This module serves as the perfect bridge between nature’s wisdom and the leadership role. How can we take the logic of life and apply it into our leadership and organizational development? How can we truly shift our ways from rigid, mechanistic scheduling and planning and move into regenerative, life-affirming ways? The module presents key concepts and dynamics in ecosystem facilitation and emphasizes the type of questions Regenerative Leaders must ask themselves to steward health, life, and vitality in their living systems.

  • Module 5

    MODULE 5: The DNA of Regenerative Business

    In this module we take all that we’ve learned in previous modules and apply it in concrete ways to our role as Regenerative Leaders and practitioners. We will dive deep into how we build thriving organizations based on the Regenerative DNA framework presented in the book, Regenerative Leadership. This is a rather extensive module as we’ll go through the DNA model in depth, thoroughly exploring every DNA strand, to equip you with the knowledge needed to transition your organization to regeneration.

  • Module 1

    MODULE 6: Regenerative Leadership Capacities  

    This module is designed to be the nourishing, deep inner exhale, and the introverted yin energy we tap into before we go out into this world as regenerative change-makers and transformers. It ties together the final threads of what we’ve woven in the modules before and offers you some practical next steps. 

As Above, So Below, As Within So Without

A JOURNEY THROUGH INNER, OUTER & ECOSYSTEMIC DIMENSIONS

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. 

This journey will focus on how we can create regenerative ripples in our own lives, our projects, our organizations and through our actions have a regenerative ecosystemic impact.

A Regenerative Business Model


This is how Regenerators Academy do our best to create regenerative ripples. The Regenerator’s Academy is based on values of regeneration.

This means that this entity has to create regenerative impact not just for participants, but far beyond its direct circles of influence. This isn’t a traditional course where financial revenue streams only benefit the creator of the course and the course content can only be accessed by those that can afford it.

Designing regenerative ripples has been at the core, which means the following simple rules are in place:

  • Indigenous wisdom keepers and regenerating land efforts receive direct benefits of financial capital generated: 10% of revenue is donated to regenerative projects with a preference for land regeneration and empowering indigenous voices. It’s our responsibility to help them gain access to capital and at its core regenerative wisdom is indigenous wisdom. 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 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 don’t get paid but are expected to happily share their wisdom and knowledge. 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 that mean? It insists 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.

Alchemy between Structure & Emergence

 

Our journey is a combination of known pieces of the puzzle that you dive into during your own time and space, and then a series of live sessions, where we collectively hold space for what wants to emerge. We learn from regenerative pioneers, dive deep together, share lessons learned, and express our reflections around the content pillars.  

Your guide Laura Storm will be the main space holder to guide and deeply sense into where we need to go together as a collective.


Questions You May Have

  • 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 organize deep-dive groups beginning April 2022. Smaller groups of app 8 who travel and learn together in a self-organised way but with a suggested structure from the Regenerators Academy.

  • 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 1-2 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 discount if I sign up after the LIVE sessions has begun?

    No. The price stays the same throughout the year. You will still have access to everything as all sessions are recorded.

  • 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.
