More Information About This Event
Who Should Attend?
The Summer Institute is a transformational experience for attendees at all levels of Conscious Discipline knowledge and implementation. If you’re just starting out, this is the perfect place to begin. If you’ve attended a Conscious Discipline workshop, completed the book study or are already an active practitioner, you’ll sharpen your skills and leave with renewed focus and practical tools.
The more knowledge you have about Conscious Discipline before you attend, the richer your Institute experience will be, and it’s not uncommon for alumni attendees to return to Institute to deepen their knowledge and accelerate implementation with new tools and learnings.
The difference between other Conscious Discipline training and the Institute is similar to the difference between taking a science class and then taking the science lab. The Institute is a hands-on, interactive “lab” experience. You will be part of an active School Family for a week, feel the sense of safety and connection it creates, and allow the information to move from your intellect to your heart. This integrative experience is indeed life-changing. Don’t miss the opportunity to attend, regardless of your previous training with Conscious Discipline!
