Swiss ScienZ School 【A Course in Knowing Yourself】

From the end of the year to the beginning of the year in Switzerland, three courses of the ScienzZ School are being held.Starting in the summer of 2019, people from Europe have been coming to the ScienZ School twice a year, in succession, in summer and winter.


Switzerland is in the middle of a record number of corona infections right now, and several people have been unable to participate due to corona-related issues. In spite of this, however, we have a group of enthusiastic people who want to participate in order to grow as a human being. (We are also taking all possible measures against Corona)

The photo shows the members of the "Know Yourself Course" that ended on January 1.

A 27-year-old young man - "I experienced a transformation in myself by learning from and among everyone.

A 37 year old woman: "I felt like a butterfly flapping its wings, realizing the prison I created and realizing my true wish that was inside of me.
These were some of the comments I heard.

It seemed to have been a wonderful week for all participants to feel the wonder and potential of humanity.

On the New Year of 2022


Happy New Year to you all. I am pleased to be able to work with you this year through the activities of the As One Network.

21 years ago, As One Network Suzuka Community was born in a corner of Suzuka City by a few volunteers. They were eager to "realize a society where everyone in the world can live happily.

A family-like community has been created with various researches and trials since 2001. Now 200 people beyond blood relations join the community. In addition, network activities have been emerging and spreading to the abroad, by people who have come into contact with the community's reality.
And now people both of community and network are trying to create "one world" together.

Especially since last year, new visiters have been increasing. They are trying to create a new future; such as political leaders, government officials, people in the publishing industry, and people who are involved in the creation of eco-villages in various regions around Japan.

In the beginning of 2022, A Chinese Research team asks to cooperate for the rural reconstruction project of East Asia, and the Global Ecovillage Network (GEN) call on to join their international exchange meeting for creation of an intrinsic education programs.

Looking around the world, it seems that there are few communities in urban areas that have been able to operate stably for more than 20 years. It' s also rare to find a community in the world that has the function of fostering human resources to create society.

In this sense, the Suzuka community is likely to attract more and more attention as a future social model.

This year, I would like to meet as many of you as possible and move forward together.
Let's do it together!

October 16-22: Course to know “life”
Oct. 23-29: Course to know yourself

A lot of people gathered and the course was held. The staff (Sato, Hiroya, Jin-chan) who came from Japan to hold the course, the lady who prepared meals at a side dish shop and network members in Korea.
In particular, I was impressed a mother could join the “Course to Know Myself”. For there were many people who supported her twin babies as her babysitters. I was a secretariat, however, it was time for me to feel that was not just a course.

Those who want to participate, those who want to hold the course and make it work, and those who have supported and cooperated with themselves. It was a process where the hearts of those people gathered and realized. I thank all of them.
