This is not the time to stop or hit pause on transformation. Now, more than ever, the tools ALTRU Center offers are being called upon to lead and inform an empowered & connected community. Therefore, we are offering new, innovative trainings to meet public need and safety while maintaining the precautions of the pandemic. Join us for online, virtual trainings to learn to take on these challenges using the tools of transformation.

workshop text

ALTRU CENTER workshops rest on a simple, fundamental philosophical principle: each person is born whole and complete, lacking nothing. So no matter what your race, religion, socioeconomic status, or physical gifts and challenges, everybody is born complete. The Center provides workshops, continuing education classes, and other learning experiences to support you to rediscover and return to that original wholeness.



Deepen your understanding and appreciation of the many ways in which race, ethnicity, and cultural diversity have shaped American institutions, ideology, law, and social relationships from the colonial era to the present.

By exploring race and ethnicity as a dynamic, complex ideological and cultural process that shapes all social institutions, belief systems, and individual experiences (worldview) you will expand your capacity to both love more deeply and live more courageously.


Practices of Transformation

Pausing - noticing the meanings and interpretations with openness and presence.

Embodied mindfulness - slowing down to reflect on the microaggressions of racial biases - to hold them in the context of historical meanings and blindness.

Awareness of the interpretations that have become a matrix and appear to be the truth of oneself and the "Other."

Communicating - speaking and listening that invents realities.

Identity - Source.


By being present at the level of Spirit and Community, I/ We transform.

THE 4 pillars of every 7-figure business

Regardless of what businesses you’re in, there are only 4 things that matter to growing any business. When you focus on these four pillars, you grow your business exponentially. When you are distracted by anything else, you are doomed to struggle and ultimately fail. How do I know this? I have built and exited two multi-million dollar businesses ($5 million and $25 million in annual revenue) and I’m currently building my first $100 million dollar business using the exact same principles. 

There is no such thing as “luck” -- especially in business. We make our luck when “opportunity” meets “preparedness.” Are you prepared to bring your business to the next level? These same pillars work for your first $10K, $100K, $1 million. 

Whatever your business, it’s time to take a break from working IN your business and start working ON your business. These 3 hours will help you reframe what truly matters in your business and free you up to work on the only things that create immediate and long term sustainability in any business. Opportunity is knocking. Are you prepared to answer the call? If so, sign up now. If not, be ready to hear about it later from your peers who do.

Part 1 of our training series is about self-discovery. Who are you, once you strip away the trappings of modern life?  Which core beliefs further your goals, and which ones limit you?  Through exercises, games, lectures, sharing, small group work and close-eyed visualization, students have an opportunity to experience how you respond or react to life. This awareness creates new possibilities, new choices and personal insight which begins to clear a path to a purpose-driven life.

Part 2 builds upon the awareness you opened during Part 1 of the training, allowing you to powerfully break through your limiting beliefs and conversations. You’ll reconnect with your purpose and shift your perspective on what is possible, not only in your life, but also in your community. The amazing experiences shared in these 5 days will last a lifetime.

Trainer: Rob Israel

October 8th, 2023 @ 3 PM (3 hours)

Breath is the vehicle to both conscious awareness, mindfulness and presence and also can help us access our unconscious and the hidden material that is the basis of our conditioning. In this 3-hour workshop, ALTRU Center co-founder Rob Israel, will teach the fundamentals of meditation and various breath exercises to support well-being, manage stress and reset the nervous system. We will then have a facilitated Breathwork session and use conscious connected breathing to explore non-ordinary states of consciousness using a proven, known, safe and drug-free methodology. This technology, while already over 50 years old is just now coming to the forefront of personal growth and will take you places that provide clear insight into your identity, your life, your relationships, and your connection with the divine. Join us in this special opportunity to take a deep dive into the unknown and physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of who you are.
