Less Wonky

The Thing

A school for people and of place.

Do work that calls to your soul, give what you can, and be who you should be.

The pitch is that you join us.

The Dream

In the dream, school pays you to join in, serves the neighborhood as it serves you, and puts beauty at the center of things.

Some Poetry

You do not have to be good.

You do not have to walk through the desert for a hundred miles on your knees repenting.

You only have to let the soft animal of your body

love what it loves.

--Mary Oliver

The Summer Invite: July 1-31

An urban retreat for ex-corporates and creatives.

Work on yourself or a project in the orbit of others doing the same.  Amsterdam is our classroom.

Pay what you can.

Bread, Coffee, Beer: July 9-23

A good cup of coffee served by an owner who knows your name is one sign of a decent world.  Or so we believe.  

Can we ever have enough locally owned bakeries? Coffee shops? Cafes serving a beer brewed near by? Can any neighborhood really be vital without at least one of these?

Lets scale that--the local, the personal, the store front that serves the spirit of the street--with two weeks of sharing and learning for those who make and serve the essentials of the day: Bakers, Baristas and Brewers.  

It will cost 70,000 Euros to do it right and we appeal to independent Bread, Coffee, and Beer around the world so that we can bring thirteen bread-coffee-beer types to Amsterdam to make this real.

A Thought

If the best thing we do is look after each other, then the worst thing we do is pretend to look after each other when in fact we are doing something else.
