SIGLA is a an evolving “playground” for the “Living Archetypes” to manifest their traits,
face their woundings, integrate their woundedness to their original nature leading to
the soulful transformation of the Filipino psyche.
Man has yet to learn to be a butterfly, be able to flap his wings in a sustainable way, and be a precious creature in the garden of life.
Our experience in this pandemic is about living in a veritable cocoon. We were forced back into confined spaces, to put our hearts, minds and hands in this mission of coming back to open air with the clear goal of not only survival but thrive in the emerging new world.
SIGLA, the School In the Garden of Living Archetypes, enables individuals and organizations to navigate their new course with manifest intent.
SIGLA offers three movements or core programs: The "SPIN', the "CHURN" and the "FLIGHT"

Truth-Love-Care in Moving On with Meaning (TLC-MOM)
Transformation takes place inside the pupa. Imaginal cells are broken down to create the marvel they are meant to be. Individuals and organizations must be able to review their existing processes to reinvent themselves to remain effective and productive in the emerging new world.

Staying up in the air and being steadfast with the mission requires resilience.
