We offer workshops a few times each year, typically in the Bay area and at Esalen Institute in Big Sur, CA. Participants range in age from 18-32 years old. While many people are in different times of their lives they share  a common thread: they are in transition and have a strong desire to live an authentic life. These workshops are highly experiential. Participants are supported by a tribe of  people who are asking similar questions and pursuing a life they want to live.


“I spent six years building a career as a venture capital attorney. I thought this glamorous career would make me happy; it didn't. I arrived at Kerena's retreat Walking an Authentic Path at Esalen Institute feeling extremely defeated and confused regarding my expectations of life; that is, that a line of work, more money, or more powerful friends would make me happy.

Kerena provided guidance and an environment that allowed me to see past these motivations and to begin asking what-- in reality-- made me happy. This was her gift to me: encouragement, support, and the realization that the answers to life's most important questions are under the surface  when I stop and listen.”
