LIFE COMPASS Just as a compass guides us through uncharted territory and helps us plot a course to find our way, the Life Compass learning lab will help you navigate a path into your unique life-giving contribution in our world. This experiential, coach-guided workshop will provide you the opportunity to pause, to reflect on where you’ve been and who you are, and help you step more confidently into your unique future.

GLOBAL IMMERSION This is a 6-month virtual learning experience that culminates in either a 1-week immersion experience on the San Diego/Tijuana border or a 2-week immersion experience in Israel/Palestine.

CULTIVATING THE NEIGHBORHOOD In an ecological system, every plant, animal, and element is influenced by the others.
