YOU Want to Change The World

But like many of us, you sometimes find yourself at a loss: things that you would like to see change in your own life feel stuck. How can you change the world outside if you haven't changed your world inside?

There are trainings to get better at leadership, management, organizing, design, advocacy...you name it. But there is no training to simply be a better you.

Until now.

Designed for activists, allies & agents of social change, 27 Days of Change brings a focused "practice period" of daily inner work training to the midst of our fast-paced, modern lives.

This 6-point, 360-degree personal change program—done online, from wherever you are—helps you examine your relationship to yourself, your community and the world.
Want mindfulness that matters?

Join the movement to use inner change to create real social change.

transform the world from inside out.

Here & Now.

 

And This Time...You Have Help

Real Change From The Inside Out

Want change? Focus on what you want to have in your life, rather than what you want to go away. Some studies of human behavior suggest it takes 21 days to introduce a new habit. That’s how long it takes to begin transitioning old memory patterns to new ones. Designed by a master trainer, 27 Days of Change was created with that, and you, in mind. She even built in a little margin for error.

Making a clear agreement with yourself is the foundation of your training. Six areas of intention are focused on. Back by science and 2,000 years of experience, taken together, they’re a complete 360-degree examination that helps you decide what’s working, what’s not, and to cultivate the skills necessary for what you’d like to change.

The Practice Portal is like having your own personal change guru and community of support on your laptop, tablet or smartphone, delivering recorded audio and video talks and sessions to engage and steer you every step of the way. Choose the level of support you need: online community, weekly coaching and even personal coaching. When you’re done, get a certificate to celebrate your achievement.

The result?
Everything you need to design your own personal & powerful change retreat
...from wherever you are.

Six Spheres of Intention

360º Training

Generosity & Open-Heartedness

An open heart is the most precious generator of the energy needed to take up the challenge of changing the world. It's the precursor of resilience and essential for true leadership. Practicing generosity makes the heart muscle strong, resilient and more available for the things you care about most.

Ethics & Harm Reduction

Bring your life into greater alignment with your purpose and values through deeper cultivation of self-responsibility and integrity. We use The Five Warrior Trainings—a compilation of all basic ethical and spiritual codes—to provide fundamental values alignment. Reducing our footprint moves us closer to being in right relationship with the planet.

Reclaiming Relationship & Patience

We all have a relationship in our lives that we would like to reclaim. Whether with an estranged parent, friend or part of our selves, the virtue of patience, coupled with the powerful lens of the Four Actions, empowers us to reframe and re-examine connections that have been frayed or lost so that we may once again find wholeness.

Effort & Behavior Change

With nearly 25 years experience bringing together deep personal and collective practice for social transformation, creator angel Kyodo williams, the “change angel” knows what gets in the way of change—and how to overcome it. Her own rigorous training and practice as a Zen teacher, activist, author and thought leader prepares her to deliver the guidance you need to help you be the best you.

 

Meditation & Personal Practice

Whether it's 5 minutes a day or an hour, it all adds up. Build relationship with yourself, your community and the earth through meditation. Powerful expert guidance makes it easy. Have a beloved practice that you'd like to become more committed to? Yoga. Centering Prayer. Jo Kata. Focusing. If it brings you closer to your self...Bring It!

Study & Wisdom

Focus on a topic at the intersection of deep personal practice and social transformation, create a vision board or write your personal theory of change to clarify, strengthen and deepen your commitments. You'll also get to select a Personal Challenge to focus on an area completely specific to your needs. Discover the Wisdom that already lives within you.

What People Say

"The meditation instruction was a huge breakthrough for me. I’m just now finally getting into short meditation sessions. It’s hard going to make the time and bring the energy. But the rewards are great! "

Dav Clark
Multiple Season Practitioner

"Process and organization of the intentions followed by carefully designed support that had a deep and broad path of exploration."

Winter 2015 Practitioner

"Most useful was making a commitment to practicing with some of my stuck places. The FB group helped me to feel I wasn’t alone with my commitment. People’s comments were helpful. Meeting some practitioners through image and/or voice (in group coaching) was also helpful."

Lauren T.
Brooklyn, NY

"I was surprised by how much actual change this program engendered in my busy busy life. Holy crap this is some strong medicine."

Autumn Leonard
Brooklyn, NY

"I was surprised by how illuminating and useful it was to separate the different (intentions) and focus on just one at a time with a concrete activity on a particular day for a specific amount of time in the place of my habitual vague muddle."

Nan Eisenberg
Retired longtime Community Arts Coordinator, Cleveland Museum of Art, OH

"It surprised me getting out of mental crises so quick... "

Nette Urban Sky
Dipl. Kulturdesign, Germany

"Community is the new guru. "

How the Program Works

Here's how this time-tested, skillfully designed, research-based 360-degree "reclaim your life" program works:

Set Your Intentions

Making a clear agreement with yourself is the foundation of your training. Once you’ve registered, you’ll fill out the Six Spheres of Intention form. Think of it as six lenses through which to look at different spheres that govern how you show up in life.

Daily Reflection

A live webcast Opening Ceremony kicks things off. Then, each day for 27 days, you get reminders to keep you on track and tuned in. Daily Quotes and reflections bring greater perspective and help you discover deeper truths.

Weekly Instruction

Twice a week, receive teachings on each of the six intentions. The short, potent talks are usually an hour or less from a master coach on life and teacher of liberation. Integration days makes sure you have time to take it in...and get a break.

Private Facebook Group

More Facebook? Yes. The private Group is like having your own personal change cheerleading section. People from all walks of life that are walking the same path and invested in supporting your growth.

ZenChangeTM Group and One-to-One Coaching

Amp up your engagement and deepen your support system by choosing the power of coaching as an option. Get specific support for exactly what you're working with in your life right now.

Closing Ceremony

At the end of the 27 Days, we mark our time together with a Closing Ceremony and a transition period to reflect and solidify your learning. When you’re done, get a certificate to celebrate your achievement. 

Why This Matters

We can find greater alignment in our lives by setting a clear intention to practice with intensity for a set period of time. This creates space for the deepened commitment, rigor, and yes, sacrifice, we associate with long retreats, and maybe even monks!

But not everyone can go on long retreats like a monk, so 27 Days of Change is designed to help you accomplish change in the midst of your life…where it is most useful, where it truly matters.
