Application Process

The Living School application is intended to lead you through a process of self-exploration and to clarify the requirements of participation in the program. The entire application process takes place online and could take several hours to complete.

The application includes the following components: assessing your current situation and spiritual journey, general and background information, and understanding of the program. Some questions require short essay responses in 125-250 words or fewer; a personal narrative is requested in 500 words or fewer.

You will be asked to identify two individuals who can provide recommendations regarding your readiness for the program. Each person will be invited via email to complete an online recommendation form for you. You will also be asked to provide the name of a program witness (accountability agent), someone who, pending your admission to the Living School, is willing and able to be an active presence to your work and studies during the program.

Many who have completed the application process have found it to be a helpful tool in discerning the next steps in their life’s journey, regardless of acceptance into the Living School. One applicant shared, “Many of [the] questions challenged me to reflect deeply upon key life experiences and led me to an understanding of how those experiences helped form my spiritual character and inclinations.”
