Learn life-changing skills that can dramatically improve the quality of your personal and professional relationships by increasing harmony, trust, and creative problem-solving. Become part of an inclusive and respectful community to help you deepen peace within yourself, in your relationships, and in your world.

In this program, we will provide a place where we can learn and grow in community, and offer a different way to be in the world – where we can be both honest and caring, fierce and tender, and where we can live authentically.

More than just a workshop, or even a series of workshop, this immersion program includes a rich combination of methods and practical tools to support your learning and integration including:

  • Four in-person gatherings (2½ days each).
  • 1-on-1 support session with a trainer.
  • Ongoing empathy support from peers and repeat participants.
  • 90-minute online session (webinar) each month the group does not meet in person.

  • Apply communication tools in a way that comes across as natural and where people see you as being authentic, rather than using a “technique.”
