Design formation experiences of different durations for a variety of purposes and participants.

Use poetry, stories, art, music, and insights from wisdom traditions to evoke the "inner teacher."

Understand and employ the power of paradox while holding a trustworthy space.

Integrating deep listening, silence, solitude, community, and the Clearness Committee process.

Integrate deep listening, silence, solitude, community, and the Clearness Committee process.

Commit to one's own ongoing inner work.

Identify one's own needs, goals, strengths, and weaknesses, and work with a mentor to assess progress toward mutually agreed-upon goals.
