The first two modules are at the stunning Land Celebration in Gore, Virginia, a beautiful retreat site that features several group sleeping rooms, a swimming pond, a hot tub, a large kitchen and dining area, and a beautiful group process room. The buildings and amenities are nestled on a large rural property with hiking trails, rolling green lawns, three walking labyrinths, and several multi-denominational shrines located throughout the property. It is a beautiful setting for the deepest work you’ve likely ever done. Our third module will be held at Four Springs Retreat Center in Middletown, CA.

Practice & Resources
Regular Buddy Calls
You are required to have a regular buddy checkup call, at least every two weeks, best is the same day/time. During these calls you are practicing active listening as well as some of the tools we are teaching, such as somatic inquiry.
For your reference, here are copies of your buddy protocols:
We highly recommend that you connect with your cohort regularly, several times a month, to practice the many skills and tools you are learning in the ALFT. It should be at least 2 people, but could also be three or more of you, with one or more of you observing and giving feedback. Or it could be a group of you to practice any of the group processes. This is peer lead and peer organized. The sooner you organize this, the better!
LDT Materials (For Reference)
As part of your preparation for the ALFT, we ask that you review the LDT materials, as the ALFT teachings will build on them. Click here for the most current LDT 2022 Folder Materials.
community & mentorship
One great way to stay in touch with the community, practice your skills, and continue your own personal growth is to come staff Upcoming COR Events!

You will have a 1 hour mentoring session each month with your assigned LDT Mentee. It is your responsibility to book these sessions asap.
