Welcome & Terms of Service

Our practices involve looking at and being intimate with the structures of one’s personal reality, including how we make sense of experience, individually and collectively. Carrying over assumptions from other practices can lead to misunderstandings. Read over the following statements to determine whether or not our practice will be a good fit for you.

We see you as a free agent capable of honest self-assessment and responsible choice. This is an invitation to take responsibility for yourself and your experience, including a willingness to set and maintain appropriate boundaries. By attending our events you take responsibility for your own safety and comfort, choosing to leave the practice or participate in any given moment. 

Not Psychotherapy
We do not follow a therapeutic model of diagnosis and treatment. Our method is educational. Our emphasis is relating. Our facilitators and coaches are guides. Our practices are practices of connection and meditation whose aim is to reveal more presence. We do not prescribe choices or actions. We are not psychotherapists; we do not see you as being in a therapeutic relationship with our facilitators. Participants are welcome to speak and explore developmental intentions such as “getting somewhere,” growing, and evolving, but we do not presume these are the drivers of experience. We work in the present moment, assuming wholeness moving to greater wholeness. 

The Expectations of Leadership
Our facilitators act in service of better relating through bringing more presence to what’s happening in the here and now. This may not follow typical expectations of a “group leader,” such as telling people the “right way” to act or making sure everyone gets along. We include the internal experiences of the leaders as part of the process. We invite you to listen to your own inner direction for leadership, and consider others’ responses as feedback to you in the context of the moment.

Is this Right for You?
Our workshops can be intense. We explore the unknown, the volatile, the ambiguous, as well as welcome emotions many deem as “negative” or “inappropriate” such as feelings of inadequacy, anger, sexuality, and joy. We often explore multiple sides of seeming opposites at once, and believe this can reveal an underlying unity of the immediacy of experience. We see bringing awareness to intense feelings as distinct from acting upon these feelings—we may ask you to pause or leave if we determine certain expressions risk leaving the practice of relational presence.

If the above description of our workshops sounds potentially overwhelming or destabilizing for you, if you have mental illness or significant emotional challenges that you feel may be exacerbated by this type of transformational environment, or if you are not sure that you can be self-directed in taking care of your needs during the event, then we advise you not to enroll. Finally, you must be at least 18 years old to attend.

By participating you acknowledge that you have read and agree to abide by these Terms of Service.

Here's what some of our participants say:

Life-changing Leadership

"Level Up ⬆  literally changed my life. It expanded my relationship to leadership, while bringing more leadership into my relating and relationships outside of a formal Relatefulness practice. After only a few weeks, I started experiencing a total deconstruction of self, and the program supported me to reconstruct my identity into something bigger and more meaningful than anything I had imagined previously. I now have the courage to take these practices into other areas of my professional life, and to start developing my own workshops that incorporate this way of being with the other tools I have to share."

- Mercedes J

Total Life Transformation

“What I would have liked to know before starting Level Up ⬆  was how much it was actually going to destroy my current life, in the best possible way… I would not recommend this for everyone… I would recommend it for people that really really want to grow, surf their edges, do their work.”

- Tory G

Being Loved and Loving Others

"I've replaced that [old] story with a deep knowing that I am whole as a being just as I am. And I have a natural drive to develop into more fullness of what I am. I've been trusting more in life, in my capability to birth my dreams and desires into being. I've experienced being supported and changed by a community of incredible, inspiring people. I've been truthful of who I am in relationship - and experienced feeling SO loved in that - allowing me to be more relaxed as myself in this world... I have no idea of how big the ripple effect of this is. I love the videos, the daily contact with the community, the growth and the presence, the 1-1 and 1-1-1 and coaching, and Certification Circles, all of it, it's just making my life fuller in so many ways.

- Josephine R


“I’ve learned a whole new way of trusting myself that has given me the opportunity to be in trust and connection more with other people. Even in my most recent partnership… I still have moments where I’m in my own world, feeling like I have to do this alone, but the minute I take a step and say the thing I don't want to say, it draws in and opens up a more fruitful conversation, as well as it becoming more intimate.”

- Colin M

More Joy in Addressing Challenges With Others

“Level Up ⬆  is perfect for anyone who wants to show up in a way that brings more joy, and also want to maybe address challenges, problems, issues that come up with themselves with others.”

- Alex P

A More Fulfilling Life

“If you want to know more about yourself, are willing to learn ... and it’s not just about leading other people, and you really want to connect with and have a more fulfilling life: This a good way to do it.”

- Alex W

Embodied, Effortless Insights

"I clarified many things throughout the program, most of which are non-verbal. As I pause and let it sink through my body, the most noticeable realisation for me is how effortless leading often felt; and this is something that has really surprised me, given my proclivity to avoid leadership in daily life, mostly "going it by myself". This is something that will likely have the biggest impact on my future self. I would especially recommend this program to people who want to have the mirror turned around onto them."
