Intentional and effective leadership

Due to covid, some of our presenters and guest speakers will be joining us via zoom.

Mot presenter will be hosting a 2-3 hour micro workshop.

Some of our core faculty will be working with you on a regular basis. 

We created a retreat

to allow you to focus your attention and care

on that one thing you must bring to the world...

 

EMERGE: Inner transformation for social impact and cultural change 

Our integrative program is one of a kind. It honours your own initiative and unique vision for contributing meaningfully to the turbulent present and emerging future that is ripe with possibility. You will gain greater clarity on purpose and increase your capacity to achieve it or bring your passion and creativity to life—a community project to alleviate hunger, the formation of a new youth movement, a cultural transformation project, a climate change initiative, your solution for the homelessness or for healing human suffering, that book you need to write, or the documentary you need to produce... Whatever it is, let us help you bring it in to form. The world needs your brilliance, and we want to nurture you and your vision so that you can address that calling.

Cost: Thanks to donors, our pilot residential 300+ hour training program is being offered for as little as $120 a week to cover your accommodation .
