The Renegade Method™ is developed to go from the logic of the conscious mind to the murky and often muddled subconscious mind. Here you begin to unravel the false assumptions that lead to pain and suffering, and shine the light of awareness into those dark and forgotten areas. You emerge feeling more fulfilled, whole and joyful.

In this 3-day immersive retreat, we will explore the Renegade Method™ through the innovative application of the Renegade Map. Once you learn how to work with it, you can apply it to any life circumstance (all the time). Armed with this tool, you will leave empowered for having understood some of the root causes of unhappiness and how to address them directly so that you open progressively to joy, vibrancy, and sweetness in all aspects of life.
