A New Way of Experiencing Yourself
The best way to learn about yourself is through living and working together with others.
To live at the Humaniversity full-time as a Student is a thoroughly immersive, out-of-the-box experience. As you live, work and participate in sessions together with other Students, you get very involved with each other and become a close-knit family. Along the way, the habits and feelings that normally limit you in your life and relationships at home will begin to appear. The Student Program is the ideal place to work through these recurring issues, so you can drop old behavior patterns that do not give you what you want. You will get the space and the guidance to find more satisfying and positive ways how to relate to yourself and others, so you can ultimately create the life you want, wherever you are.
During the Student Program you will
- become more and more aware of your emotions and your needs, and become able to express them in a clear, healthy and constructive way.
- become more authentic and able to protect your personal boundaries by saying No when you mean No, and Yes when you mean Yes.
- grow in your ability to form nourishing and lasting friendships.
- improve how you resolve conflicts with friends, relationships, co-workers and family.
- learn to reflect on your behavior, give and receive feedback, and try out new behavior in a safe environment.
- gain more skills working as part of a team as well as a leader, in many different work situations and in the group room.
- experience taking responsibility for who you are, what you do and what happens to you.
- clarify your personal vision of how you want to live your life.
What Skills will I learn?
The Student Program provides the challenge to always find a positive approach to life. For this, it offers you the best support you can imagine.
The Student program is an ongoing program. You can start any day of the year. We recommend participation in the Tourist Program before you join the Student Program. The Student Program takes approximately one year to complete, depending on your personal progress. Participation usually is for one month (or more) at a time. For less than 1 month participation, you are welcome to join as a Guest Student. The minimum commitment as a Guest Student is 12 days.
How Does Day-to-Day Student Life Look Like?
You will take part in daily active and social meditations, evening classes and a weekly Student Day. You will work in the community departments and have individual and group counselling sessions. On weekends you have the opportunity to join workshops to deepen your growth process. One weekend workshop per month is included in the program fee.
The program is designed in modules (Student I, II and III) to help you evolve through distinct stages of development.
The emphasis is on developing emotional awareness. You will explore your feelings and increase your awareness through meditations, sessions and sharings. You will receive honest feedback about your approach to life from your Student family and learn how to relate to others with sensitivity. You will start to experiment with new ways of relating and expressing yourself. By working in community departments, you will practice clear communication.
Now that you have developed a safe emotional base, your focus expands from self-awareness to how you relate with others. You will begin to guide the newer students in the family from your own experience. You will take a deeper look at your own habits and behaviors, and practice different and more fulfilling ways of relating.
In the community departments, such as the kitchen, sanitation, garden, maintenance, laundry and reception, you will learn how to organize and take on more responsibility. You will learn to work as a valuable team-member and communicate to others with confidence, respect and trust.
In level three you will more and more experience being a leader and discover what it is that makes you happy. When running departments in the community, you will manage all practical details and deal with the needs of your team as well as those of the community. You will appreciate that you can take care of yourself, of others and of your environment. You will take charge of your own personal growth process and give your input for the sessions, sharings and activities for the whole student family. You will inspire your fellow students to create a vibrant, loving family that nourishes every one of you. You will start to realize that you can be the master of your life.
The only thing worth learning in life is love. Life is an opportunity to learn love; life is the school. If you miss love, you have missed all education. If you learned the way of love your schooling has been fruitful.Osho, Zorba The Buddha

Fear is just avoidance of what is deep down. Is it pain? Is that what you are really afraid of? Well, then you go to the pain – stop playing around!
