Level 3: The ART of Leadership
February 1 - 7, 2020
The Ark Retreat Center
Surrounded by rice fields and lush jungle, this stunning sacred space of conscious and healthy living backs onto an undisturbed valley, this Balinese retreat center is a magical hidden gem – a place that truly must be experienced.
Visit their website for a gorgeous video tour of the property and retreat space: http://www.thearkbali.com/
During the day we’ll be convening in the spacious open-air yoga shala overlooking the jungle, complete with gorgeous hardwood floors and thatched roof, and in the evenings you might find yourself resting under a canvas of stars with the relaxing chorus of local wildlife.
The Ark’s beautiful pool and exclusive infrared sauna, stunning gardens and cozy common areas, are yours to enjoy during retreat down time – the perfect playground to really drop into self-care and true nourishment of your mind, body and spirit.
The Ark provides organically inspired, delicious vegan meals (vegetarian available upon request), all homemade from the finest and freshest ingredients around. Their Balinese chef, who is highly trained in detox, raw and cooked vegan food and Balinese fusion cuisine, will truly blow your mind! And if that’s not enough, nutritious snacks, fresh pressed juices, smoothies and drinks are available for purchase to stay resourced between meals.

Ongoing Participant Contact
Part of the context of the Level 3 course is to support graduates in sharing the authentic relating practice and its constituent tools and skills with a wider audience. As such, we are committed to providing extensive support to help establish the resources and infrastructure our graduates may need to create the vehicles by which the practice can spread.
Course Leader Track
ART is rapidly growing and we are always seeking qualified Course Leaders, and anticipate identifying candidates for future course leadership from the pool of Level 3 graduates.
