Travels to Cancun cost approximately CHF 1000 – 1500.- early bookers get cheaper tickets. This last ceremony week is designed as a collaborative fundraising as a circle, so that everybody can make it there.
Participants commit to attending all nine ceremonies and to integrate 40 specific tools and practices into their daily life. To deepen the learning from each ceremony, the participants work on assignments in between ceremonies and report back on their learnings and questions. Members of the training circle support each other for their growth and learning.
The commitment during the 3 months in between ceremonies includes a daily practice and self-reporting (about one hour a day), and a learning report every 2 weeks as well as regular communication within the learning teams.
Participants are required to have email and web access. We use a password protected website as the virtual space to receive assignments, post reports, share learnings and to stay connected between our face-to-face ceremony times.
