Virtual Awareness

Saturday 10am - 8pm

Sunday 10am - 8pm

It is with pride and optimism that we introduce ALTRU Center’s newest training, Virtual Awareness: a 2-day experiential, interactive and empowering journey designed for the current social climate. Designed to create a shift into a deeper understanding of responsibility, creativity, and the power of personal vision. 


Virtual Awareness draws from the foundation of knowledge that is covered in our in-person Part One: Opening Awareness experiential training, but is an entirely different training. This on-line virtual training is a brand new and distinct training featuring unique and inspired exercises. There will be value created for participants at all levels of their transformational journey and no pre-requisite courses are needed to participate. Being newly designed in the wake of the present global circumstances, please join us for this ground-breaking transformation experience.

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.

Masters Course


Join us for a very special event as we host Master Trainer Bettie J. Spruill. The Masters Course is an in-depth experience of the principles of mastery and the practices of living a transformed life of freedom and grace. The workshop presents a thorough philosophical and intellectual framework for transformation. As such, the Masters Course is the foundation on which the Part 1, Part 2, Living Integration and any Graduate Workshops are built. Bettie herself wrote the course based on decades of experience as trainer, facilitator and coach. ALTRU is proud to be the only center in the world to have the author herself teach this course. Don't miss this chance to spend a 3-day weekend learning with the incomparable master herself!
