Our Living Our Transitions 
from Transitions to Transformations

At a time in history when we are profoundly impacted by the breakdown and breaking open of much that has shaped our way of life, we are called to look inside ourselves as we look beyond frameworks of the past for guidance.

We are the ones tasked to create models and methods that give prominence to the ‘successful navigation of transitions’ as the pattern for transformation of our lives, our communities, and our world. In a series of six dynamic early morning classes, participants listen, observe, interact, and complete exercises designed to prepare us, individually and collectively for the tasks.

Not everyone is ready for this opportunity or challenge. If you are ready, even though slightly scared, know that we welcome you to join us for what promises to be a series of six energizing, intimate, and creative learning sessions.

Classes are 90 minutes, 8am-9:30am CST.
