Clarity and purpose

in turbulent times

An 8-week intensive to accelerate your path to replenishment, productivity & impact.




This transformational program invites you to:

  • Expand your practices for HEALTH and wellbeing

  • Access fuller capacity & expression

  • Reclaim time, energy and life force for things that matter most

“The nature of health encompasses far more than just freedom from disease. Health is physical and emotional, vitality, flexibility, creativity and resiliency. It is connection to community and purpose with the freedom of expression and ability to find happiness in the face of life challenges. Health is experiencing life from our highest potential and promoting that same wellbeing in others.”         
—Nkem Ndefo

Leadership & Lasting Impact

The last few years have been unlike any other.

We are no doubt in turbulent times of volatility, uncertainty and change. 
Old systems are breaking down. Go-to, tried and true strategies are no longer working. ‘Making it through another day’ hasn’t brought us any closer to what we are yearning for.

This is the perfect time for advancement. LET'S BEGIN!

Registration is by application only and you are invited to apply.

There is only one unique and brilliant you.
Choose to be that because you know it’s inside of you.

You can train yourself into the version of you that you are meant to be.


Being fully you is a choice and a
responsibility; a commitment to yourself, from yourself.
