Five Days of
What Right Looks Like
The Warriors' Ascent Program is an immersive experience designed to empower our participants to take ownership of their own healing and control of their lives by giving them the tools to heal and tend the mind, body, and soul. We achieve this with a rigorous five day curriculum that teaches healing skills, inculcates essential lifestyle habits, and builds a sense of community and belonging within our participants.
Exploring the mind: thoughts, feelings, behaviors and cognitive biases
Strengthening the body: yoga, nutrition, sleep
Unburdening the Soul: Cathartic rituals and events; Includes Ceremony for the Dead and the Leap of Faith.
Staying the Course: Self-Efficacy, Self-Actualization.
Final reflections and graduation ceremony.
THE REST OF YOUR LIFE:
You leave with the tools you need to take responsibility for your life, a sense of self-efficacy and self-actualization, and a supportive community of friends that share common experiences and are on a similar journey.
