This six weeks pushes you, encourages you, and just compels you to find something so deep, truthful, and connective inside you. it’s a process that I can’t believe I waited until I was 47 years old to do. I feel like my life would have been different if I had done this instead of going to college- that would have been a really good idea.

 

You’re put into a situation where you’re compelled to thrive- it’s an amazing, opening experience, and I loved every minute of it.

 

I cannot recommend this training enough. I’ve already told my wife that she needs to block out six weeks somewhere in her life because I want her to do it. I want my son to do it. It’s just great leadership skills, great emotional skills, great people skills- and then there’s the yoga. Beautiful place, beautiful people, very supportive- it was the best experience, and I loved every minute of it.
