Omakase is a Japanese phrase that means “I’ll leave it up to you”. It comes from the word meaning “to entrust”. Many things occur in our lives that we don’t know will happen until they do. We can’t predict the future. We THINK we know what’s coming through, and we plan and organize our lives accordingly. Doing so is certainly helpful, and often necessary. However, the ability to respond to what we don’t foresee with an open, eager, curious attitude is a much-needed skill that can be practiced and developed.
Join us for a year of unpredictable experiences designed to catch you a bit off guard and lead you to delightful and satisfying results. The 2018-2019 May Year Long, “Omakase”, will be filled with profound insights and powerful “ah-ha” moments, which tend to occur when we don’t see something coming. We thank you in advance for entrusting us to provide these experiences and guide you to new awareness and growth opportunities.

Every dream begins with a willingness and longing to disrupt the way it is now. It is typical that when tragedy strikes our emotions flare and we are motivated to take action to alleviate the pain and upset we see around us.

It’s been a season of extraordinary disasters. Hurricanes paired with massive earthquakes and wildfires have left a wake of death, destruction, and an unforeseeable future while racial and political divisions threaten our sense of safety. Many people are also going through personal catastrophes … job loss, death, another relationship failure. Between what’s on...Read More
Sooo… how was Beyond Reasons? I loved it! Well… I loved-hated it. I took it as part of an onboarding process for becoming an employee for Productive Learning, and I have to tell you there were moments when I thought they were hazing the “new girl”, but by the end of the workshop I got it.Read More

A study published in the journal Human Molecular Genetics showed that tea consumption in women leads to chemical changes in genes that are known to interact with cancer and estrogen metabolism.
