“Something opens our wings,
something makes boredom and hurt disappear,
someone pours a cup on front of us,
we taste only sacredness.”

– Rumi

What Is Distinct About The Vitalization Training Format?


We focus a great deal on learning and being together as a group.

A rising tide lifts all the boats.  By getting to know one another in a group setting, we are better able to support one another’s learning as practitioners, and deepening as individuals.

The bonds we establish with one another support the building of reliance and trust, which allows all of us to take greater risks to learn and develop as professionals and as people.

We share all of our meals together, start and end each day together as a group, and spent the afternoons sharpening our skills as practitioners.
