After a year of research, retreats, recordings, and website development, we’re excited to announce the launch of our Ayni School with two courses: one on Social Movements and the other based on our Seeds Program. These two courses represent the beginning of the Ayni School.

The Social Movements Course dives deep into a comprehensive introduction of our foundational frameworks for understanding social movements including Movement Ecology and Seasonality.

The Seeds Course centers three key relationships that we need to recuperate: with our communities, ancestors, and Mother Earth. We believe we need to understand how these ancestral relationships can provide the guidance and wisdom needed to navigate the social and ecological issues of our times.

For us, the journey of creating the school arrives during a time where accessible online education is more important than ever.  Learn more about the Ayni School and enroll by clicking the link below.

At the Ayni Institute

We are living in a time of transformative change. We believe that the only way to change a system is through building a new one that can meet people’s needs at a higher level. There are many people working to create change; whether they are strong communities, alternative institutions, popular movements, training programs, and others. The Ayni Institute is looking to engage and support those which are creating something special that can bring our world towards reciprocity.  We are deeply guided by the wisdom of these areas: Memory, Alternative, and Movements.
