Overall Rating
by Eleanor 04.07.2011 -Sofia Diaz

A good friend of mine kept recommending that I check out his favorite yoga instructor, Sofia Diaz, when she next came to teach in Berkeley. I already had a daily Hatha Yoga practice and wasn’t planning to be in Berkeley anytime soon, but after six months of his insistence, I decided to go see what […]

Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) Course

Overall Rating
by Rion 04.06.2011 -Permaculture

Why include a review of a Permaculture course on this site? Permaculture is far more than environmentally sustainable building and growing – it redefines the way that you view problems and their solutions. You are actually reprogramming your brain in a way that incorporates a whole systems approach to challenges instead of just looking at […]

My first foray into Men’s Work started when I was 28. I had met some men in my community that were heads and shoulders above the majority of the population in characteristics such as appropriate self-confidence, integrity, awareness, and life purpose. They inspired me to become like them. When I asked a […]

What if the reason your life is the way it is doesn’t just have to do with what you’re saying and doing, but also depends on what the people you spend your time with are saying and doing? How would that change your relationship to who you choose to be around and how you support […]

Shortly after completing Bhava Spandana Program, I saw that Isha was offering their Hata Yoga program in Los Angeles.

by Eleanor 03.24.2010 -Isha Yoga

I liked Inner Engineering well enough but always had the feeling that I was going to love the next program, BSP. I was ready to take this yoga business even further, and here was my chance. The promise of BSP is to get a taste of what’s “on the other side” so that one can […]

Avatar ReSurfacing

Overall Rating
by Eleanor 03.22.2010 -Avatar

Early on in my exploration of self development and transformation work, I called a friend who had taken every program known to man, to ask him what he thought made the biggest difference for him. Without missing a beat, he said it was Avatar, because it was the most “clean” program he’d taken, meaning that […]

A Weekend Workshop With David Deida

Overall Rating
by Robert 03.14.2010 -David Deida

My first exposure to Deida began with reading Way of the Superior Man. The book is about the tragic loss of masculinity within our culture, and the triumphant rise of men who dare to claim it back. If I can share one story, it would be a simple parable of a man coming home […]

by Eleanor 03.10.2010 -Landmark Education

I was excited to take Landmark’s Advanced Course before I’d even registered for The Landmark Forum. A close friend had told me it was one of the most transformational experiences of his life, and he had participated in all kinds of self-development work, so I was sure this was going to be the magic solution […]
