In response to the painful unraveling of our world, many are reconnecting to a deeper sense of purpose
and growing themselves as leaders in order to help co-create a more conscious future.

The greatest collective awakening in our human history is underway.

How about you?  Is a much bigger possibility calling forth your unique participation?

Are you ready to make your greatest contribution yet know you must do so in a way that is sourced in our own essential truth?

Is now your time?


If so, come join us at one of our Four Shields of Leadership programs.

We offer you an unparalleled opportunity to relax into your most natural self and access the deep wisdom present there in body, psyche, mind, and spirit.

Immersed in wild nature and drawing on the power of the pancultural medicine wheel, ours is an integral approach to finding the clarity and deep knowing that can consistently guide you in living the life you were born to live and making the kind of bold and enduring contribution that can help co-create the future we’re all yearning for.


Described by past participants as "an essential opportunity for leaders", you will:

  • Crack open your current view of yourself and discover your hidden fire lying within your own story
  • Shatter your "too small" personal and cultural definitions of what it means to be a leader
  • Call forth the fullness of who you already are as well as who you are becoming
  • Courageously weave more of your unique gifts, talents, passions, and wisdom into your leadership
  • Bring that innately powerful authenticity to your work as a leader








Come join us! Together we'll discover how to become leaders who can more artfully navigate our way to a world that doesn't exist yet but that is waiting to be born.

While both the retreat and the intensive take place in nature, neither is physically rigorous and no previous outdoor experience is necessary. Gentle interactions with nature are our intention. If you can walk comfortably on uneven surfaces, you can participate. The depth of your experience is not influenced by your physical capacity.
