A year-long ZeroOne apprenticeship
A year-long program comprised of four in-person modules, with an additional ‘module’ woven throughout the journey involving home practice, online sessions with Adam and meet-ups with other apprentices.
You are here on earth for a reason. Your life has a meaning and purpose to it that only you can find, and only you can bring forth. As Gabrielle Roth said “If you don’t do your dance, who will?” Your life is that dance.
The intent of this year-long program is to give you the tools to access, clarify and manifest your sense of calling: to know, and find the courage to act on, your unique gifts in this lifetime. To have a movement practice that can help you to bring forth your medicine in the world, whether that’s teaching movement, raising healthy children, or working for a big corporation in a radical way.
You will be apprenticing to the dance, as explored through the entire ZeroOne map – of Body, Heart, Mind, Soul, and Mystery.
* This apprenticeship does not promise new-age wow-factor light-miracles. It is an opportunity to be down-to-earth honest, diligent and generous. To walk the world with both grief and gratitude in your heart, willing to show up and make a difference.
** This apprenticeship is a pre-requisite for taking part in the first ZeroOne teacher training, that will begin in late 2025. You’ll be welcome to apply for that, if you choose.
So you may be interested in LifePaths?
Whether you take part or not, I suppose you have noticed something in my work that resonates with your own path already. To join LifePaths will be a big thing. It will be a strong investment of time, money and soul-level engagement: not suitable for everyone. We want to be as sure as we can that the journey would be a good fit for you.
So even at this stage, we ask you to begin right now to listen to the quiet murmurings of your body, and whether LifePaths is right for you. Yes, use your mind to take in the information that’s coming from us; yes, be intelligent about whether it would work for you at this time in your life; but also, listen to your body’s felt-sense responses to the choice. Read the information we send, then move with it for a few minutes. Breathe deep and move with the question “How would this serve my life-path?” Or you could move with orienting towards this journey, and then move with orienting in some other direction, and pay attention to the feelings that arise within your body in each case. This is a delicate dance we’re doing, already. There are many other ways you can work with me, and all of it serves this purpose of clarifying, deepening and strengthening your life-path, your soul-dream. It’s just that LifePaths is explicitly focussed in this direction. I look forward to seeing you down the road we’re all travelling on, when the time is right.
Description of the program
We will dance deep, breathe freely, speak the truth, listen to the moment and find ourselves in each other, over and over again. The mutual support of the apprenticeship group will be a fundamental element of the journey, learning how to live, love and work with each other for the sake of something bigger than ourselves. You will not be walking alone.
Freeing the Body
18 – 22 September 2024
To free the body is our first step at our year-long journey. We will remember how to dance, freely. Rooting into the instinctive wisdom of our physicality through movement and meditation, getting to know the ways of our body and breath, allowing it to move freely through the four stages of evolution and change:
Circulating, Pulsing, Releasing and Enlightening — all inspired by Being.
Venue: QUINTA TEN-CHI, Sintra
Opening the Heart
4 – 8 December 2024
From the foundation of physical practice, the next step is to open our hearts. We will remember how to love, connectedly. Engaging with the wild forces of love in relationship with each other, we will learn to tenderly turn towards our fear as Dynamic loving, to skilfully wield our anger as Fierce loving, to be deeply cleansed by our sadness as Surrendered loving, to be delightfully uplifted by our joy as Radiant loving — all inspired by the simplicity of Open loving.
Venue: CASA HOLSTEIN, Sintra
Knowing the Mind
10 – 16 March 2025
With the twin polarities of body and heart activated, the time comes for knowing clearly the nature of our mind. We will track and trace the stories of our lives, to begin to understand the beliefs, wounds and blessings we carry. Journeying through the Generating times of conception and birth, the Engagement of childhood, the Transformation of adolescence and the Integration of adulthood — all inspired by the Mystery of our death.
Venue: Enxara Retreats, Mafra
Entangling the Soul
30 May – 8 June 2025
Integrating the holy trinity of body, heart and mind, we will explore how to create entanglement with the world, just like every other life-form on earth. Involving ourselves personally and passionately in the world by doing what we came here to do, we get to see our own shadow nature, bringing ourselves into consciousness physically through exploration of our Sex, heartfully through trade and Money, mindfully through the use of Power, wholly through the play of our Creativity — all inspired by the devotion of Prayer.
Venue: Enxara Retreats, Mafra
Embodying the Mystery
With disciplined home practice, we will focus upon the personal challenges and gateways that arise from our daily lives, supported by regular connection with fellow participants and online meetings with Adam. Step by step we will bring the spirit of our dance into the world, in the form of practical creative actions in service to love, life, and freedom.
