Life is a grand adventure. Sometimes we choose our path; sometimes it chooses us.
What would nourish you right now?

– Dr. David Drake

You don't need to travel alone . . .


In this time when we feel socially distanced in more ways than one, it is important to stay connected. We offer four core events each month; and they are open to graduates, current participants, or those of you who are just getting started. Each one is a safe space to talk about what truly matters with colleagues from around the world and support your well-being. What are you looking for right now?

We offer these events because sometimes you don't need a whole program. You just need to be met with compassion or inspired by a fresh perspective. Our events are oases where you can replenish yourself for the road ahead. Invite a friend and come see for yourself. . .

MONTHLY COMMUNITY EVENTS

Park Benches

A time for rest and renewal


These one-hour sessions are our gift to you and a place where you can just BE. They are hosted by a community member and offer you a time out for peace and quiet. No slides, no agenda, no steps to take. Just the ebb and flow of silence and sharing from the heart in support of your rest and renewal. The theme for each conversation will emerge from those who are gathered. Come have a seat . . .

TAKE A BREAK FOR YOURSELF

Pivotal Moments

A nourishing boost for your journey

 


These complimentary one-hour sessions are a great place to bring a friend or check out what we offer if you are new to this work.

We explore one of our teachings and how to live it more fully in these times. They are hosted by a community member and Dr. David Drake (and sometimes a special guest).

If you want to go deeper, join us for the Third Spaces session two weeks later. Both include simple practices you can take with you.

JOIN THE CONVERSATION

Third Spaces

A guided process to free you to flourish


In these three-hour sessions, we explore the topic from the Pivotal Moments session that month. It is open to everyone; the PM call is recommended but not required. They are like a campfire around which we gather to share our stories. Dr. David Drake will guide you through three simple yet powerful practices to support your growth related to the theme. It is amazing what can happen when we gather this way. The sessions are not recorded to honor their sacred nature.

GATHER HERE WITH OTHERS

I appreciate the delightful space that is held in which we can explore with one another.

– Suzanne B.–

I feel more settled now and with more to reflect on and try out as I leave.

– Grace T.–

Such a gift to have a safe space in which we can share our stories and our wisdom.
