ALTRU CENTER workshops rest on a simple, fundamental 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.

The finale of the core 3-part training is the 90-day program which supports you to integrate Parts 1 & 2 into your everyday life. With a team of coaches to support and encourage, you will create an action plan to take your life to take to the next level. You will grow your leadership skills and see how playing team, focusing out, and being in service also supports you and your goals. This is a tremendous opportunity to have fun, make life-long friendships, stretch into a bigger possibility of who you want to be, and have your aspirations take shape in your daily life. The program includes three trainings weekends (Friday evening to Sunday night) plus one Saturday Ropes course along with daily coaching and team activities throughout the week.
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.

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!

TRANSFORMATION OF RACE
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.

SERENITY, PEACE AND BREATHING
Trainer: Rob Israel
March 3rd @ 3PM – 6PM
Breath is the vehicle to conscious awareness, mindfulness and presence and can also 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 share the fundamentals of meditation along with various breath exercises that 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 can 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 mystery of the body, heart, mind and spiritual aspects of who you are.
