The Lead Guide Society

Adult Apprenticeship to Learn the Art of the Guide with a Society of Fellow Guides

With experience comes understanding. Join me for seven weeks of deep, experiential learning to discover a Flex model firsthand. Your journey begins with online modules that you complete independently when convenient. Step two is a live, in-person retreat with great food, an aesthetic learning space, and a lead guide accompanying you through a Flex model. In the last phase, you'll complete your work and prepare to move forward confidently as a guide in your modern school.

  • Experience a Flex studio for yourself in a retreat setting

  • Learn skills to enable you to be a confident guide.

  • Become part of a society of like-minded people.
