Our Mission:

To accelerate individual, community, and global progress by rapidly advancing personal empowerment and leadership education.

Our Impact:

We empower individuals to become the best human beings they can be: Socially connected; strong physically; healthy and resilient emotionally; wise intellectually; and personally responsible. Strong effective leadership is a natural outcome when people embody these qualities. 

Our Unique Format:

Our weekly seminars and workshops are typically an hour-long making them brief, potent, and powerful over time. Most other programs are expensive and intensive, lasting all day but for just a few days.  Our format is brief but regular allowing for deep learning, retention,  and time for relationship building. This promotes powerful lasting change. 

Our Respect:

We reinforce common values while honoring unique cultures, individual differences, and personal preferences. Every person, every culture, brings something to the world we can learn from. We strive to dignify the humanity in all people.  

Accessibility: Our programs are of tremendous value so we charge accordingly. However,  finances will not be a barrier to participation. Where there's a will, there's a way.

Our Vision 

People will live in harmony with each other and with earth.

People will enjoy a robust sense of capability.

Integrity and authenticity in leadership will be the standard. 

Confidence in our future will grow.

Civic engagement will increase significantly.​

Healthier living will reduce medical costs.

People will be less dependent on governments or charities to meet essential needs.

All people will appreciate the privilege being human truly is.
