You will experience community and camaraderie through weekend class hours and two immersive retreats. You will be asked to dig deep and share generously. You will have many opportunities to teach inspired and transformative classes to your fellow students. You will expand your skills to facilitate workshops and retreats. You will evolve through applied practice and expanded knowledge. You will be a better teacher and a better student when you complete this amazing and demanding journey.

This program will unfold in weekend modules (one14 hour weekend per month, and one 6 hour weekend day per month) and will include two four-day immersion retreats (Thursday – Sunday) in June and December, 2019.
