The Regenesis School
Continuing education in regenerative development available for alumni of The Regenerative Practitioner Series*.
Enrollment is open now for courses and workshops beginning in October 2022.
Welcome to The Regenesis School
The Regenesis School is an ongoing resource for TRP graduates, designed to support you as you navigate your developmental path in this work. School offerings fall within two semesters: Winter (October – March, i.e. summer in the Deep Pacific) and Summer (April – September, i.e. winter in the Deep Pacific).
Who Are We / Why A School
We are a collegial community of peers, dedicated to evolving regenerative work in ourselves and the world. We draw from a rich and varied tradition, translating living-systems understandings into practical applications. We work with a developmental technology, a cohesive way of working that emerges from and is in integrity with the core epistemology, cosmology and ontology of regenerative development.
We operate from a belief that life is evolving, and that every living being (including ourselves) has the inherent potential to contribute to this evolutionary process. For this reason, we share a collective commitment to ongoing personal and professional development in service to the life that surrounds us, so that our own inner transformations become instruments for changing the outer world.
We avoid trainings or courses that are designed to transfer knowledge. Instead, we seek to enable each of our members to grow their own capacity for thoughtfulness, discernment, caring, and application of living-systems perspectives. We come from diverse backgrounds, disciplines, and life experiences and this is a source of strength and breadth of understanding. As creative beings, we chart our own unique learning paths, consistent with the contributions we choose to make in the world. The role of the school is to provide evolving opportunities to pursue these paths, in the company of other learners.
In designing each course, we emphasize the importance of concreteness by anchoring the learning experience to participants’ real projects and endeavors. We build in depth, so that participants can return to the materials again and again to find new meanings and insights. We reflect the whole of regenerative philosophy even as we go deep into a specific subject, so that coherence of approach can be sustained. And we embrace a spirit of shared, open-ended inquiry—a commitment to regenerating our own thinking—so that we avoid becoming trapped in dogmatic certainties.
Welcome to the Regenesis School. We are glad to have you join us.
Three Natures of Learning Experience
To enable finding the support you need at different phases of your own developmental journey, Regenesis School courses are structured around three natures of learning experience.
Practice Studios: A working practice ground for developing peer-to-peer resourcing capabilities and increasing efficacy in the application of TRP frameworks to real, live projects that members are currently working on. You get access to these drop-in monthly studios when you become a subscriber of The Regenesis School, which also gives you a discount on Mastery Courses and Workshops.
Mastery Courses: Deeper dive courses focused on developing greater mastery in regenerative systems thinking technology and methodology. Mastery Courses run for the length of the semester and include preparatory reading and assignments.
Workshops: Workshops are focused on developing capacity for direct applicability of frameworks and processes from key arenas of regenerative practice. Workshops consist of 2 or 3 weekly sessions.
Three Aspects of Development
The Regenesis School’s catalogue of courses and workshops is designed to provide the ability to move through three different aspects of development that regenerative practitioners navigate through as a nested system. This semester, we are offering courses and/or workshops at all three levels:
In Regenerative Capabilities, we will focus on increasing fluency and nimbleness in applying regenerative ideas, frameworks, and practices across our work and personal lives. The aim is to deepen understanding of the underlying developmental technology — how it works, why it works the way it does, and how different aspects fit together. Ultimately, this will better enable each practitioner to contribute to the evolution of regenerative development in the world.
In Regenerative Business and Practice we will focus on the business dimension of a regenerative practice. The aim is to grow successful, effective, and influential endeavors that work in harmony with their places.
In Regenerative Systems Change we will focus on how to understand and regenerate living systems. The aim is to learn how to create change in the places and fields that we care deeply about through evolving the organizations, communities and ecosystems we serve.

As with TRP, we are able to offer a 40% scholarship/subsidy to any practitioner who would not be able to participate in the series without financial support. Interested practitioners should apply for a scholarship prior to completing their registration form. If you are are awarded a scholarship, we’ll contact you with a scholarship discount code to use when registering and paying for your selected programming via the new Member Portal.
We are especially committed to using scholarship funds to create equity of access to this work and inclusivity within our “community of communities.” For this reason we place special priority on requests from practitioners in the following categories:
- Practitioners who work as community activists and/or organizers serving marginalized populations and/or underfunded communities.
- Practitioners from underrepresented backgrounds, including Indigenous practitioners and practitioners of color.
- Practitioners from countries with low economic purchasing power relative to the US (including Africa and Latin America).
- We are also currently prioritizing scholarship funds for practitioners who have been substantially adversely affected by the current global economic situation.
If you are in one or more of the above categories and a 40% scholarship is not sufficient to make participation possible for you, we encourage you to make a request for additional funds during the scholarship application process.
To apply for a scholarship, you can navigate to the scholarship application link on the Regenesis School Catalogue page, or use the direct link to the application below. If you are requesting financial support, you will not complete the process of paying your course tuition until your request is approved. We typically respond to scholarship/subsidy requests within one week of submission.
