We aim to stay small as an organization, since we believe it is the best way to stay true and authentic to our message. As a result, we give away a much of our message through podcasts, daily readings, and product and resources available through Tribe membership.

We have filled our U.S. events for the past four years, and we have accomplished international events in Australia, South Africa, and the UK. We now have finished a UK men's retreat in September of 2018, and then one in Australia in December of 2018, and are planning another women's retreat in the UK in 2019.
