It’s summer here in the northern hemisphere! And Somba’s are doing it again with their Summer School.


Even if you live in the southern hemisphere where winter has moved in, there is no excuse not to participate in one or more of these exciting, innovative, free beta courses.


This is an implementation sprint in the context of the online business coaching SOMBA. It is about designing, promoting and implementing your own online course in little to no time.  This year I’m participating in the Somba Summer School for the second time (I have been in SOMBA since 2018).

In 2018, my Somba Summer School course was about balancing your menopause dragon. A course for women in peri-menopause or menopause who wanted to regain their energy and vitality with an easy to follow, side effect free, effective, natural way to relieve menopause symptoms. 

This year my topic is : Connect Artfully or heARTfully.


connect artfully



Express your emotions and discover a healthy outlet for your feelings. Connect Artfully is connecting with your heart using art.
It is an Intuitive, intentional and creative practice. It will allow you to connect with your emotions on a deeper level and transform negative emotions into positive. More on the course and sign up here.

This year there are no fewer than 263 courses (here an overview of all of them). They focus on business, creativity, content, nutrition, partnership, mindset, animal training, dance, crafts, music, health, etc.


Despite this diversity, all courses have a few points in common:

  • They all start on 15 July 2019
  • They last exactly 4 weeks
  • They are free for the participants
  • These are new courses that have never been offered before in this format, and the first time on the market


Below is a list of the courses I’m either participating in, or would love to. Some are english and some german – in no specific order – the choice is endless…

My recommendation for the course selection during the SOMBA Summer School

Pick 2 to max. 5 courses that you would like to join:
5 is really the absolute maximum that I would recommend – otherwise the SOMBA Summer School will be a full time job for you 😀

Mix your topics:
I do not recommend, for example, choosing 3 different blog courses. Best is a mix of different topics and genre’s to get the most out of it.

Plan enough time per course:
Calculate roughly one day of implementation per week per course.

Please remember to give course instructors feedback on their courses.

Somba Summer School is a fair give and take: you can try the beta round of classes for free and in return give feedback on how the course makers can improve their course.
You can filter on the overview page for topics, but my suggestion: go to the page and just search with CTRL or command + F for a keyword that interests you.

And now: Happy selecting! 😀
