& guidance


A Creative Adventure

A creative life is an adventurous one. There's the joy of creating new things and the pain of watching cherished creations fail. There's real risk when you act on your own ideas and the challenge of communicating with people who not may understand risk at all. Finding compassionate, nonjudgmental guidance capable of understanding the ups and downs of a creative process can be life-changing. 

The Conscious Adventurer

Creative, action-oriented people are everywhere in every profession - from art, business, media, and tech worlds, to fringe and traditional trades and warrior cultures. What separates conscious adventurers is that they live to create answers for unknowns and often focus on this to the point of obsession. They live to execute in uncertainty. Exercising creativity doesn't feel like a choice, and when unable to do so they suffer.

What we do

We connect conscious and creative people to warrior energy. What does that mean? We help people reconnect with their truth. We do this by facilitating learning experiences through compassionate listening, radical openness, group feedback, and challenge. Storytelling is the key to a larger process of reflection that informs exploration and growth. We then add in a mix of people with the most powerful stories we know to mentor and guide.

Importantly, we are not here to change or fix you. We're here to support, challenge, and nourish you. We can do this without agendas and while challenging you to stretch in ways that only experienced guidance can provide.

Couples - Cultures & Teams

When push comes to shove, creative partnerships do best. They secure the trust needed for innovation. But creativity isn't a button to push - it's the ear mark of genuine connections. In this six hour workshop you'll get in touch with the inner dynamics that create authentic communications and meaningful relationships. Discover how to relate in ways that spur conscious cultures to come together and grow.

Couples will find a path to reestablish intimacy, improve connection, evoke trust, and forge the security that encourages freedom in creative partnerships. 

Woke Warriors Reboot & Recovery Experiences

Outdoor excursions for creative leaders and professionals in recovery

Forget fake it until you make it. Embrace real. No matter what our job or role, it's easy to lose touch with the reality of who we are, what we are, and how we serve -in other words, the truth of ourselves. But we must find our way back to that core truth. Woke Warrior Intensive 3 day reboots offer you a chance to do just this. With the basic ingredients of nature, time, and radically honest storytelling and group feedback, we'll help you find you way back to a real and clearer you. You'll also get the chance to take your next step through time-honored wisdom and rituals that are the hallmarks of ancient warrior cultures. 

*Our Woke Warriors Recovery Experiences are limited to sober professionals with at least 6 weeks of active recovery under their belts.
