I found myself here, referred by a dear friend. Love the serendipity as a big question I have been holding has been, “How do I take the powerful healing and transformational work that I am doing and evoke even more passion and desire for growth and change from my clients, helping them to stay inspired and committed to do the work over a long term, so it becomes a lifestyle?”
I knew the answer was integrating adventure based learning and growth. That’s why I’ve been using martial arts and Walkabouts with my clients. And offering long term exciting and face to face adventures.
BUT, then how do I help them keep the fires of motivation alive and encourage growth in between sessions?
I knew that we are all online. And was actually imagining how I would set up my work online in a very rudimentary way to follow a gamified adventure model.
And then, I find this! AWESOMENESS! You have pioneered something extraordinary and so accessible and fun! I am here to build a couple of online adventure trainings and to learn everything I can from you guys and how this system works here!
My two inspirations are…
1. An online adventure based version of a martial arts program that I have been running with kids through a mental health clinic for 6 years. We already have tonnes of fun and teach skills and offer exciting challenges. But, the online layer would add soooo much!
2. An online and real life 30 day challenge to help men who are questioning whether to stay in a relationship, helping them to make a decision that moves them one big step closer to creating true and lasting love in their lives. Challenging them to answer deep questions, go from their heads to their hearts, I’ve already got the spine of content and layout of order, with many men and women who love men telling me that this is super useful and needed. There is nothing like it out there and it will demand a lot of sensitivity and honesty and some risk from participants, so I want to do it right.
So happy to be here to learn and master this adventure based awesomeness!

I love your ideas – especially the martial arts one. My girlfriend is teaching an in person class for kids with special needs and it is amazing. I think the philosophy of the martial arts and working on mental health are really amazing. Looking forward to seeing what you create!December 24, 2015 at 10:36 am #5764

Wow @DavidJ, thank you so much for really ‘seeing’ and ‘getting’ what we’re creating and doing here. Thank you to the friend that referred you here as well. Clearly, right place, right time!!
I’m so curious what lesson you’re on right now?
I love both of your eCourse ideas. So much potential for creating an incredible, transformational journey for people. Once we get to Architekt Forest, we’ll help you narrow in on THE COURSE you’re gonna create.
thank you so much for following your heart and passions up the mountain with us.
2016 is gonna be AWESOME!December 26, 2015 at 9:56 am #5846

Thanks! You guys are so awesome and responsive! I love the email you sent out today about laying low for the holidays and taking the pressure off of launching or big decisions. Wise reminder. Love the bear den and camping adventure metaphors throughout!December 30, 2015 at 1:38 pm #6493

Awesome, glad that resonated David. It’s been a good reminder for myself. I’m used to going none stop. Stopping has been the perfect medicine. I’m sure I’ll be much more valuable to all of you in the new year because of it 🙂December 31, 2015 at 4:57 pm #6596
Your courses sound wonderful. I work with many men who may really benefit from the course you are creating.
Excited to see your course develop.

I loved reading about your ideas. I studied martial arts for many years and I apply it’s principles in all areas of my life.
I can’t wait to see what you come up with in that realm. I also have a few men friends that could use your second idea.
I look forward to getting to know you on this journey,
