PALAESTRA: TRAIN TO BECOME A BETTER HUMAN BEING and do work that matters.

11 May - 31 August

R100

Welcome to the palaestra, a online learning community, a space where we can connect, wrestle with ideas, and train together to become better human beings.

A community of practice, where actions trumps everything.

A Palaestra was the wrestling school within a gymnasium in ancient Greece. A palaestra could exist without a gymnasium, but no gymnasium could exist without a palaestra.

So, this is ours, where we strip away the masks, the pretense, and get skin in the game.

Our Palaestra will be a space where we dig deeper, train harder, and inspire one another to build things that matter.

We will explore innovation, business and be inspired by art and design. Engage in discussion, philosophy and spirituality with online sessions, readings, practices, and disciplines like meditation.

All with this resolve, to live meaningful lives and do work that matters.

“I want you to be better. That’s it.
I’ve worked with multinational corporates, Non-Profits, faith communities and 1000’s of individuals to help them do one thing,
be better humans so they can build stuff that matters.”
