An Alt*Div Learning Journey Includes

Before we ever meet, we use the tools of Open Master's to invite big questions and listening to our guiding why; why we are here, and what might be calling to us this year, and beyond. A series of welcome calls and peer mentoring in June and July introduce us to each other and help us hone in on our shared questions and hopes.

Participants launch the year with the support, celebration, and accountability of the group.  Major touchstones  throughout the year include monthly check-in "Family Calls", mentor circles, and affinity groups and projects around shared themes. In the first half of the year we focus on  Foundations  of our spiritual practices, community, and self-directed learning. In the second, we  focus  and dive deeper into the questions and areas of interest that have risen to the top.

AUGUST: A one-week process of translating purpose to action; goals to plans. Because we recognize this community to be a major source of support and accountability, significant time is invested into the relationships, shared interests, and common values of the group.

The end of the year is a "sending" into what's next: a ritual of transition more than an end. We do the work of harvesting our learnings as a gift to each other and the larger community, as an opportunity to show appreciation and acknowledgement, and as opportunity to welcome the next group(s).

Each individual’s “program” in Alt*Div is unique, and is designed around and supported by:

Your LEARNING GOALS:

  • A personal learning plan you will craft with our help and that of the community, perhaps including...

  • Exploration of new (or old) spiritual practices

  • Individual or group projects

  • Reading of sacred texts

  • Solo journeys

  • Creative expressions of what you are learning to the public (through art, writing, and other means)

Your COMMUNITY:

  • Monthly “family calls"

  • Participation in affinity groups

  • Peer mentoring relationships throughout the year

  • Leadership, hosting, or organizing roles in the community itself (our community is led from within)

  • One-off offerings related to what we're learning (such as book discussions and skillsharing)

  • Building relationships with mentors and elders in our community and beyond
