Evolving your mastery of anything requires ongoing learning, practicing, course-correcting, and unlearning – and the tools taught in our previous courses (More To Life Weekend and Way of a Warrior) require this, too. Like a concert pianist who is skilled but continues to practice to bring forth his/her best, we can choose to do the same. Mastery involves an ongoing evolution of ourselves and a deepening of our ability to respond to whatever Life sends us.

Prior to taking this course, you would have learned how to work with the mind. Evolution of Mastery turns your attention to revealing the fundamental Truth about who you are as a human being. 

During this course, you will work to: 

  • Acknowledge the truth about yourself, others, and Life
  • Practice being clear and resolute of purpose
  • Crack through any remaining beliefs or unconscious patterns that keep you from being fully present to the here and now  
  • Create the life you’ve wanted to live with clear, conscious choices
  • Become masterful in working through blocks, and focus on managing your own development personally and professionally
  • Further your understanding of how we are all connected to each other, to Life, and the universe
  • Balance inner solidarity with a lightness of being
  • Seek the truth, however is it delivered

As this process of mastery unfolds, or evolves, that refinement reveals the authentic and loving human being you are meant to be. And as you open to the depths of your most noble self, you find that you are able to connect to others and to the life you are given in a way that allows you to live freely and passionately.

The cadence of Evolution of Mastery is quite different from the experience at Way of a Warrior or Living Yes!. We'll come together as a small group (no more than 26) and start the day with morning movements to awaken our senses. The morning and evening sessions will be led by experienced senior trainers who will guide you in developing your Mastery through group as well as individual work. Your afternoons will allow time for reflection, writing, walking, meditation, rest, and integration of the work that is unfolding in you.

Your Evolving Mastery empowers you to emerge again and again from the challenges you face with clarity – ready for the next step – stronger, wiser, intentional, and with an open heart and mind.
