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.

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.

Beneath our thoughts and what is conscious, lies the world of the subconscious and emotional material that is the basis of our conditioning. How do we get free of something we cannot see? Take a deep dive into the unknown and physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of who you are. Breathwork is a chance to explore non-ordinary states of consciousness using a proven, known, safe and drug-free methodology. This technology, while already over 40 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. What's more, it will take you where you need to go, but only when you are ready to go there.

Trance Dance rituals have been happening since ancient times in many cultures. They allow the dancer to take a personal journey of body and spirit. The combination of intention, setting, breathing, rhythms and dancing while blindfolded allows the dancer to experience a profound spiritual journey.
