Radical Brilliance Laboratory

Nevada City, CA, with Arjuna Ardagh
February 17-24, 2019

Here is a short video about this event:

This residential one week intensive is a total immersion in the tools and vision described in the book “Radical Brilliance."

We will follow all of the guidelines described in the book, including:
:: waking up before dawn for practice,
:: using "tickle and practice" tools to bring forth new and original ideas,
:: following the principles of a "brilliant diet"
:: taking "brilliant supplements" (provided for you)
:: practices of brilliant friendship, brilliant dinner parties, and co-creation
:: practices of long-term vision
:: principles of "creation vacation"
:: practices for dissolving belief
:: daily sitting
:: mentoring and coaching with qualified coaches
:: and much more… Anything and everything you find in the book (that is legal!) will be available in this retreat

This one-week experience is intense. I-N-T-E-N-S-E. You should anticipate a completely full schedule during your time, from when you wake up in the morning, to when you go to sleep at night. Please do not schedule any work appointments, meetings, or phone calls during this week. This is an opportunity for a complete break from the usual demands of your life, so you can absorb yourself in your own latent brilliance.

By interacting with other participants, you will have the experience of a "mastermind" environment, where you can get support as well as creative challenge from others.

This retreat is limited to a maximum of 20 participants, so there is plenty of time for personalized attention on your specific project.

Please note: this is not a "spiritual" retreat, nor is it a "meditation" retreat. This is also not an opportunity for "working on yourself" or for any kind of psychotherapeutic process. Although we will use many of the tools described in Radical Brilliance, the primary purpose of this retreat is to bring forth your innate brilliance that can be a gift to the world. Think of this retreat as dedicated not to you personally, but to the legacy that you will bestow on generations as yet unborn.
