HOW CAN WE LEARN TO LIVE A FULFILLING LIFE?
Bootcamp4Life is a 2-month summer program that allows you to develop competences to overcome challenges in your life. Guided by an international team of facilitators, you will join two immersions in the Swiss alps and in Brazil and work on your own set of tools.
THE FIVE BUILDING BLOCKS
The Bootcamp4Life is about all those things we don’t learn in school. The learning process is based on the following 5 core areas:
Who am I? What am I good at? How can I become who I want to be? Take the time to get to know yourself, find out your uniqueness and strengthen your self-confidence.
What should I dedicate my life to? How can I make a difference? What is my contribution to solve the problems in the world? Explore where to steer your life and career.
How can I find people I can truly identify with? How can I build deeper relationships? Experience how being part of a community can be truly transforming.
How do I deal with stress and anxiety? How can I focus on what matters most to me? Learn tools that can help you deal with complex situations and decisions.
How to keep going even when things are tough? How can I solve problems? Have real-life experiences and develop your power of learning from failure and staying strong.
The program starts in July with a 5-day kick-off event in the Swiss mountains. During the online phase, you should dedicate around 5 hours/ week to the Bootcamp4Life.
The two-week immersion in Brazil is also full-time, so plan ahead to be able to take time off work or your studies.
