The Life Experience School is a Path with Heart
Welcome to the Life Experience Community Website
The Life Experience School is celebrating its 50th year of peace education!
“The school operates under a non-hierarchical (laissez-faire) style of leadership, similar to a Quaker Meeting in order to highlight the unique gifts and talents of staff and students alike.”
– Lewis Randa, Founder
Throughout the day, there is a flurry of activity in many directions here at LES as each person plans their schedule … and the staff scrabbles at times to help them make it happen. It’s an amazing way of going about each day that is open-ended and imaginative, with each person moving about the day within the context of relationships that are grounded in respect and friendship.
The Global Pandemics Bereavement Bereavement Stone has been offered to the people of New York City to be placed on Hart Island, where victims of pandemics over the centuries have been buried in mass graves.
The Pacifist Memorial, the largest peace memorial of its kind in the country, was created as a community outreach project of The Life Experience School and The Peace Abbey in 1994.
