Welcome to Level 3: Immersion
The ART of Leadership
February 10-16, 2024 | San Isidro de Peñas Blancas, San Ramón, Costa Rica
An 7-day deep dive into human consciousness, providing the insights and skills to lead and facilitate transformation in groups, organizations, and communities.
The ART of Leadership is designed for graduates of our Level 1 and 2 courses to deeply immerse in the practice of authentic relating within a community of practitioners committed to cultivating themselves as relational leaders and embodied catalysts of cultural transformation.
The advanced skills and practices in this training will support you to be on your tender edge where healing, growth and sustainable change happens, all while resourcing yourself in the profound power of human connection and the nourishment of nature.
Part leadership training, part connection laboratory, and part initiatory experience, this week will support you in the unique ways you desire to engage in and contribute to this world. From clarifying your vision and purpose, to facilitating transformational events, to being the embodiment of this work as a gift and inspiration for those you relate to in your life.
Who is this for?
A diverse group of participants thrive in our Level 3 course, including those who simply can’t get enough of Authentic Relating, leaders seeking to integrate relational principles into their current roles, and facilitators and healers who are eager to deepen their embodiment of authentic relating.
For the "can't get enough" Authentic Relater
This is your opportunity to immerse yourself even further in the practice you love. You’ve experienced the profound richness it brings to your life, and now you’re eager to explore more, to share it with the people you care about. In this course, you will find what you’ve been searching for – deeper connections and new depths of Authentic Relating. Join a community of kindred spirits who share your longing for meaningful connections.
For the Leader
This program is designed to support you in integrating authentic relating into your current role of leadership. Whether you’re an entrepreneur, a manager, a parent, or leading and organization or movement, you recognize the value of being relational, connected, and integrated in your approach. You aspire to lead from the heart while maximizing your effectiveness. Level 3 will provide you with the tools and skills to lead authentically and foster a culture of trust and connection.
For the Facilitator or Healer,
This training will help you fully embody your role of service. As a coach, therapist, or practitioner in the healing arts, you understand the importance of leading your clients and students with an integrated, relational way of being. Level 3 will deepen your understanding and practice of authentic relating, allowing you to bring a grounded and transformative approach to your work. If you want to go all the way, it’s a stepping stone on your path towards becoming an Authentic Relating Certified Facilitator through our Level 4 training.
If any of these descriptions resonate with you – or perhaps you have your own unique way of being in the world that would benefit from the transformative experience of Level 3 – you are warmly welcomed to apply.
The ART of Leadership is a transformative program that combines cutting-edge training tools and practices. Led by our Senior Course Leaders along with a team of mentors sourced from our Level 4 Certification program, the Level 3 training supports participants to step into self leadership, carving an authentic and connected path forward in the diverse aspects of their personal and professional lives.
During this immersive training, you can expect to:
- Embody authentic relating at a profound level, where it becomes second nature – like speaking a language or playing an instrument effortlessly. You’ll release the structures that were once necessary and learn to flow freely with the practice
- Cultivate profound self-awareness and insight. Develop the ability to identify and articulate your personal experiences in the present moment, while gaining the tools to navigate unconscious patterns, habits, projections, and stories.
- Acquire a powerful toolkit of practices to create contexts of deep human connection across various social domains. You’ll be empowered to invite and enroll others into these transformative spaces, fostering genuine and authentic connections.
- Discover a clear sense of purpose and mission in the world. Through expertly facilitated practices and leveraging the group field, we will help you reflect upon and embody your essential values. Allowing you to align your leadership with authenticity and purpose.
- Develop your capacity to facilitate relational spaces, cultivating coherence, trust, and shared perspective. You’ll gain the ability to name the unspoken and create a container for collective growth and transformation.
- Embark on a profound journey of living and breathing Authentic Relating alongside our staff and fellow participants. You’ll forge deep connections and contribute to the cultivation of a strong sense of community.
Throughout the course, you’ll have various opportunities to step into leadership and facilitation. Our Course Leaders, mentors, and fellow participants will provide valuable guidance and feedback, supporting your growth and development as an authentic leader. Together, we will lovingly explore and uncover any blind spots, distorted frames of thinking, or limiting beliefs, creating a new context of empowered and transformative leadership.
Level 3: The ART of Leadership invites you to expand your authentic relating practice, deepen your self-awareness, and step into your role as a relational leader and catalyst for cultural transformation. Join us on this transformative journey as we co-create a world of profound connection, genuine leadership, and lasting change.

The Venue - Brave Earth (Tierra Valiente)
Brave Earth (Tierra Valiente) is a burgeoning community, regenerative farm, and healing arts center based in northern Costa Rica. Here amidst the jungle, thermal pools and cloud forest, they are exploring new and ancient ways of living. Their mission is to create a new type of model, a living laboratory, in service to regeneration that is decentralized, resilient and replicable. Their vision to help create a network of communities around the world that are united through shared values in order to create a more unified global field.
They believe it requires bravery to step out of the traditional constructs of globalized monoculture and step into alternative systems grounded in the reality of what is possible when we align ourselves to the wisdom and power of Nature.
Watch their video to learn more about what Brave Earth has to offer, or check out their website for more information on this gorgeous transformational oasis. We are so looking forward to gathering there for The ART of Leadership in March!
Accomodation & shared spaces
Brave Earth’s rooms are inspired by Nature’s design and are created to be spaces that invite deep rest, rejuvenation and connection. Each space has something unique to offer. Their guest rooms are built with different building modalities and materials such as AirCrete and locally-sourced wood, bamboo and clay. Earth walls, floors and natural materials give the space a very grounding feeling, inspiring a deep stillness. Intentional use of organic forms, materials and textures inspire the senses to connect to nature.
Their shared spaces are where we communally gather and are designed to feel symbiotic with the environment in which we are embedded. Gather under the mango tree in the garden, enjoy the outdoor fire pit, share songs and stories under the stars.
KITCHEN & FOOD
Rumi’s Kitchen is a communal dining space, and is also known as the heart of the center. This is where we will gather to share mostly plant-based meals that are lovingly prepared from the organic fruits and vegetables grown on the land or sourced from local farmers; eggs, cheese and fish will be available at some meals. The dining area is connected to an open kitchen and the food-growing gardens creating an intentional link with where the food comes from, the preparation of food and the enjoyment of their nourishing meals.
THE MALOCA / GATHERING SPACE
The Maloca is the central gathering space and is considered the soul of the center. Crafted with intention using sacred proportions and organic materials, this space is both grounding and activating. The central fire sits directly below the octagonal opening that spirals the energy in the structure upwards. This opening welcomes starlight and moonbeams during the night and sunlight during the day. Within the earthen floors is the sacred geometric shape of the Merkaba, the alchemical symbol for union and balance. Copper, a conductor of energy, is inlaid in these wooden strips as well as surrounding the perimeter of the structure to ground the energy into the Earth.
By Application Only
To create the most potent group field, we ask that all interested prospective participants go through the application process. This is to get a better sense of where you are in your leadership path and carefully determine if the Level 3 course is a good fit for you and for the group as a whole.
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 support to help establish the resources and infrastructure our graduates may need to create the vehicles by which the practice can spread.
The ART Leadership Community
As a graduate you will be joining hundreds of fellow Level 3 graduates around the world. A beautiful, tight-knit, conscious and relational network of humans dedicated to living the work in their lives and gifts. You will also be enriched with new and meaningful friendships and connections. Level 3 cohorts of the past have stayed in touch for years (and counting) after their program ended.
