In Person Modules
Our in person schedule is as follows for 2021:
◇ April 30- May 8, VIRGINIA
◇ August 19- 24, VIRGINIA
◇ December 9-12, CALIFORNIA
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 is at our gorgeous California location, Cat Canyon Ranch.
It is highly recommended that you start to plan your travel arrangements early. Please see the logistics pages for each module for details on arrival, departure, packing lists, and shuttles.

Practice & Reading
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!
