You have never been where you are today. You have never been the age you are today, or had the experience you have today. At times, you must pause and reflect: Have you created the impact you want? Are you showing up the way you want to? Are you going in the right direction?

Rarely do we allow ourselves the time to stop and look at what is changing and what we need. Drawing on psychological principles, movement practices, and ancient wisdom traditions, we will create a unique environment in which peers can come together for a rare opportunity of intense personal learning, interaction, and exploration.

Our goal is letting go and renewing the self. You will have the opportunity to develop tools, practices, and intentions as a foundation for the next year and next stage of life. Together we will create a courageous and supportive community to make this experiential workshop challenging, safe, enlivening, and nurturing. This is not for the faint of heart and is especially valuable for those who are passionate about having a more powerful and authentic impact on the world around them.
