Life is a creative adventure. It makes demands. There's the joy of creating new things and the pain of watching cherished creations fail. There's real risks that come with acting on your own ideas and the challenges of communicating with those who not may understand risk at all. But warriors do it anyway. Finding compassionate, nonjudgmental guidance capable of understanding the ups and downs of this process can be life-changing.
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 warriors from everyday adventurers is warriors live to create answers for unknowns. So much so they often focus on it to the point of obsession. Creating and executing in uncertainty doesn't feel like a choice, and when unable to do so they suffer. They see it as their purpose.
We help conscious and creative warriors reconnect to their truth. We do this by facilitating deep learning experiences through compassionate challenge, radical openness, reflection, and group feedback. We build tribes, and then add in a mix of people with the most powerful stories we know to mentor and guide.
We do this purposefully, but without agendas and while challenging you to stretch in ways that only experienced guidance can provide.
Outings for creative leaders and professionals in recovery
Forget fake it until you make it. Embrace real.
Look, we're all in a battle. And to some degree we're losing along the way. So we're all in recovery. No matter how evolved and 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 if we want to be happy, we must find our way back to our core truths.
