Presence, Purpose, Passion, Power
Our Yearlong Program for 2017
Entering It’s 13th Year!
Now Convening a Special 9 Month (re)BirthVersion
You’ve read countless books on personal growth and spirituality.
You’ve done more than your share of weekend workshops and retreats.
You have great friends.
Yet you still hunger for a community of support and exploration for your deepest healing, exploration, and liberation. And, you’re not finding it in your current practice.
Do you often wish that your friends and loved ones could “get” what your heart’s desire is all about?
Do you sometimes feel alone in your passion for truth, and long to share it with those on the same path?
Or, perhaps, do you have a local group of spiritual friends but often feel unable to be fully vulnerable with them because of the many hats you must wear with one another?
And like many people, you probably wonder if there’s still something holding you back.
You may ask:
How do I
How do I
How do I
experience the ecstasy of
How do I
make every moment
I created P4 as a community in which people could reach beyond the limitations of their current practice to answer the deeper questions of purpose and meaning, to find the the kind of depth, connection and healing that makes a lasting difference in people’s lives.
I’ve been leading P4 communities for over a decade, so the process has had lots of time to refine and evolve.
What makes P4 so wonderful is the camaraderie that develops among the group of 12, the way each member reflects a crucial aspect of all the others, and the way that that everyone calls forth the very best in one another.
Plus, it’s lots of fun.
How Does It Work?
P4 is a yearlong program consisting of just 12 people (In 2017, it will be 9 months).
The program consists of monthly activities focused on a theme, plus two weekend retreats.
Each month we focus on a different aspect of spiritual freedom. There will be monthly group meetings by conference call, calls with practice partners, journaling, solo explorations, and personal interaction with me via phone and email.
It’s a lot of activity but it only takes about six hours per month.
View a sample monthly theme below:
How does the need for approval, and the avoidance of disapproval, keep you from living your deepest truth?
Topics for Journaling:
Whose approval is most important to you? What, if anything, have you sacrificed to get it? What does this particular need for approval tell you about yourself?
On feeling complete as you are right now. When a wildflower blows in the breeze, it just is. The wildflower doesn’t lament about not being a shrub, or about the size of its petals…
The 2017 retreats will be held in May and November near Mt. Hood, outside of Portland. These retreats will expand your capacity for community, compassion, ecstasy, depth, and wild fun.
Is P4 For Me?
P4 is a program that requires commitment. Not “do your homework” commitment, but a commitment to your own awakening, and to the awakening of others who are on this journey with you. If the idea of a commitment like this incites your passion to grow, to heal, and to unlock your deepest potential, then P4 could be a great opportunity for you.
