What do Practitioners Receive?

After signing up, you will receive a full weekend online training on Respond’s theories and methods. At the in-person retreat in August, you will be onboarded into the Respond network. We will help you connect Respond’s A Theory of Wisdom to your offerings. You will learn how to build a “full stack” Ecology of Practices based on Respond’s DIME method for wisdom training:

  • 🗣 Dialogue: How do I communicate what’s happening?
  • 💭 Imaginal: How do I play with my understanding of what’s happening?
  • 🧘 Mindfulness: How do I step back to watch what’s happening?
  • 💪 Embodiment: How do I sense into the felt experience of what’s happening?

You’ll also have a chance to connect with others, synergize your efforts, and launch a movement to recover wisdom within a scientific worldview.
