“Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.” – Buddha
Education is a crucial part of our lives. What if you had access to an education that takes care of your being before textbooks, assignments and deadlines?
What if you had a say on how you want to study?
An answer the above-mentioned questions is a school called the KaosPilots, it is not a school for pilots. It is a leadership school where you let your inner pilot take you to your highest potential making it possible for you to reach your dreams. Here is the vision of the school: http://www.kaospilots.ch/kaospilots/the_kaospilots/vision.html
Why am I telling you this you ask, the answer is simple. Sharing is caring, allow me to share my story. I am currently in Switzerland, Europe and am a proud KaosPilot, studying towards my spiritual journey. Based on my personal experience I will tell you what is KaosPilots in my own words. It is a school that tackles education by enriching, supporting a being (an individual) to reach their highest potential and becoming who they were meant to be. It is platform where you allow yourself to transform the kaos from within and letting it be your pilot taking you to the highest heights of your dreams.
It is a place where you matter, your feelings and what you have to offer to the world as your dream. Be it making the world a better place, owning a business and any sense of a career path you choose. KaosPilots allows you to do your own personal development and equips you with the abilities to function in your workspace, organisation and personal values are embraced plus uniqueness is explored.
Here I am becoming who I have always wanted to be in an unrestricted space and where I can be freely creative; putting what my being values first and growing in my own pace. This is to remind those that have given up on their dreams that it is never too late to start over. Those that feel like something is missing from how their lives turned out and to encourage the change makers and stressing that it begins with you. Opportunities are endless, be true to yourself and dare to reach your goals. You surely have those people in your life that encourage you to chase your dreams, they are the ones that remind you that the world is your Oyster. With willingness to risk it all, taking that leap of faith it a great start to claiming your happiness. Knowing that nothing but repetition comes out of our comfort zone is an eye opener. Be ready to get uncomfortable to be challenged on your way to your dream. See I want to die happy and I am at my happiest as we speak knowing that I am becoming who I have always wanted to be and my dream is guiding me.

We learn in a circle so everyone can see each other and be on the same eye level
This is how the KaosPilot education offer the programme to the students:
The programme is rooted in action, and reflects on it. It is not simply an academic exercise, but the training arena in which you can develop the skills, knowledge and attitude you will need to thrive in a world of constant change. The programme is project driven, so all courses are set in practical experience. Most of them involve an external client with high expectations for what you and your peers will deliver.
Students take personal responsibility for their learning and the success of their programme. They are taken from kaos into order, and back again so as to increase their awareness of, and ability to manage complexity, change and possibilities.
The students are followed and coached on both individual and group levels.
In addition there are 3 components supporting the programme.
- The Council Guide training is a course that enhances personal leadership development, working together like a tribe, self reflection and learning the ways of wisdom and decision making councils.
- The outpost in Cape Town is adventure where the students go together with the Danish KaosPilot school to an external classroom somewhere in the world.
- The physical training is a special part of our inner pilot curriculum to train our body and mind.
Here are the good news, the school is accepting applications for team SUI6, we have a Southern scholarship programme ready for those that want to be a change makers but cannot afford to pay for their studies. By all means dare to be different, make that change and apply. The cherry on top is that age is no factor, so if you are between the ages of 21-99 years the time is now to make that change in your life.
