Nostos Seminars™

Learning that matters – Living that fulfills!

The Program is transformative learning, NOT therapy, designed for three broad audiences.


  • Persons who engage fully in Nostos Seminars find themselves energized, enlightened, and encouraged to approach their lives with renewed purpose and imagination. 

  • Corporations can expect comprehensive organizational culture transformation when Nostos Seminars are incorporated into leadership and employee training and development. 

  • Communities can come together to prepare official leadership and volunteer cohorts to work in sync to enhance and expand community awareness, preparedness, and fulfillment of identified initiatives that increase community-wide quality of life.


Courses, taken in sequence, build upon each other. Each course is three clock hours in length. All ten courses must be completed to earn a certificate of completion.


Audiences who have found
Nostos Seminars to be transformative:

  • Leaders who have been fast tracked into high performance careers and lifestyles that afford little to no time for self-care, personal development, or relationship building,

  • Front line, essential workers who have become exhausted and/or disillusioned by unrelenting demands or ongoing crises and/or battles,

  • Persons in helping professions who are experiencing “compassion fatigue” or are feeling stuck,

  • Persons for whom at least one addiction has resulted in numerous losses, griefs, and costs to lives,

  • Persons who have come to expect impoverishment as opposed to empowerment or well-being, 

  • Persons already in transition or anticipating a transition, and

  • Persons isolated by circumstances and in need of a learning community that offers a welcoming, healthy place for questions, doubts, inquiries, and monumental changes.
