When we speak about the educational system, it is expected that this system will have lecturers, teachers or instructors who are properly educated to such a level that they would have mastered the lectured and taught subjects. However, this idea doesn’t correspond with our philosophy at all. We are convinced that if it’s supposed to be a lifelong education, the ones who are leading this education must also educate themselves throughout their life. It means that they can never complete their own education because one, who considers themselves to be complete, doesn’t have the motivation to keep on changing and developing and so can hardly be an example of their continuing growth.

In the framework of Principy Života® (The Principles of Life) is the position of the educator which is considered as a higher level of ones own studies of Principy Života® (The Principles of Life). In order to highlight this fact, we have created a special name for the„lecturers“ – TEKAJEN. This word has been put together from the initials of four Czech words (TKJN = TéKáJéeN). These words are the definition of the basic framework of these follow-up studies:

Trvalý růst (constant growth) is the basic requirement of any person who wants to become a lecturer of the lifelong studies.

Komunikace (communication) is the tool without which growth is impossible. A person only grows thanks to feed-back from the physical reality around them. Without this skill of communication it is not possible to work through this feed-back.

Jedinečnost (uniqueness) is a requirement for constructive communication. If one isn’t aware of the fact that each living creature is absolutely unique, they will never be able to understand others. That happens because they are expecting everybody else to be the same as them and that they see the same things and think the same way. In such a situation one doesn’t have any reason to think about the real meaning behind what others say and instead they install their own ideas in the place of the real content.

Názornost (a living example) this enables them to overcome the differences which stem from our uniqueness. So, to become a lecturer and pass their experience on to others, they need to be a living example. That’s why tekajens are expected to not only pass on some theories to the students which can be found in a textbook. We expect them to show students, through their own example, how the teachings are used in their own lives.

The basic goal of our workshops is to contribute to the ability in people which allows them to eliminate all the obstacles which keep them from being masters of everything happening in their life. It would be against the philosophy of Principy Života® (The Principles of Life), if tekajens were our employees and were dictated to, telling them what to do and how they should do it. That’s why each of them has a contract which obliges them to respect the rules of Principy Života® (The Principles of Life), for example, to maintain the contents of the workshops and the unitary price. However, each tekajen is their own person and each is completely responsible for what they are doing.

If tekajens completed a set education then it wouldn’t matter which tekajen you pick to study with because all of them would give you the same thing. However, we’ve already talked about the fact that in the system of Principy Života® (The Principles of Life) it can’t function this way. People of various ages, with different life experiences and with a variety of former education have set out on a journey marked by the philosophy of Principy Života® (The Principles of Life). Each student is at a different point in their life and that’s why you should choose your tekajen carefully, the best tekajen for one person is not necessarily right for everyone.
