A complete year of breakthrough workshops and a step by step process to transform.


Uncover and Define Yourself

You will be electrified when you discover that the best events and memories of your life are connected by certain emotions and feelings. You will use the fuel of this discovery to find infinite energy to transform and live each day fully.



Power Of Purpose Driven Goals

With your primary emotions as your compass, you can set a direction, milestones and goals. These goals now align with your core emotions. You will feel unstoppable when you get these elements in alignment.  



Uncover and Dismantle Barriers

You will never reach the next level of your life as long as you are beset by glitches in your thoughts and behaviors. We will employ many innovative exercises to identify your blindspots. We will uncover the thoughts and beliefs that have held you back for too long and disrupt the trigger-behavior-reward loops that have you reliving the same story year after year. 



Unleash Higher Performance

After we uncover your driving emotions and natural gifts, we’ll eliminate and bring the saboteurs of your life into the light of day. Now we’ll upgrade the engine that will drive it all. We will spend the most time sharing strategies to take your mental performance to the NEXT Level. These exercises will be your favorite part of every month.


These Meetings Are LIVE Interactive Seminars Online With ZOOM


…and it’s just once a month.

 One Sunday each month we will meet for 2.5 hours to plan the coming month. We’ll workshop on multiple exercises from our 4 core elements: Purpose, Goals, Repairs, and Tune-Ups. This will become your favorite activity of each month as you can feel changes and upgrades taking hold in your life. We all need periodic reminders and motivations to make this year better than any before. This will be your life-coaching experience from two people who have mentored, motivate and inspired thousands of people for more than 30 years. Imagine us working together on YOUR life-purpose, new goals and new future.

    Will This Be Your Story?

    Nothing just goes away…it only gets worse with time

     20’s: Just Mild Annoyances

    As we get older, we typically do not grow wiser. The strategies and negative patterns and coping behaviors we hard-wired in our youth start to show up in our adult lives in our 20’s in subtle and mildly aggravating ways.  We adjust for things like social discomfort, persistent fears and habits that don’t support our success. These personal traits at this point are just mild annoyances. The fact that some people don’t appear to have these annoyances starts to be worrisome.


    30’s Annoyances Become Quirks

    In our 30’s these mild annoyances slowly morph into our personal “quirks”. These begin to slowly shape our life trajectory, limit our professional success, and shape our social engagements. We start to realize and notice these intrusive coping mechanisms more and more. If our career or personal lives haven’t pushed too hard against these “quirks” yet, we might still be a little oblivious to them. In this decade we typically feel that ALL THINGS are still possible for us, even though our habits have already closed some doors along the way.


    40’s: Quirks Become Hurdles

    In our 40’s these quirks have really started to solidify to become “just the way we are”. While we might accept these hurdles as our personal style, we usually know that life might be a lot easier with a different set of traits. It is likely that our “quirks” have now prevented some good things from happening or put us in a bad way personally or professionally. Discontent can reach a peak during this decade and it might start a passion to resolve these issues. Unfortunately it most often leads to defeat, resignation and the burying of the pain below a surface of denial and excuses.


    50’s And Beyond: Hurdles Become Permanent Obstacles

    In our 50’s we have by now buried these “quirks” down deep under many layers of excuses and denial. We have learned to compensate and adjust our expectations of life, and the people around us fully accept our “quirks” and enable us to keep them hidden from all. The stage is now being set for the rest of our lives. We are being empowered to believe 100% that “this is just the way I am”. All life paths and dreams that conflict with our limited beliefs about ourselves become almost impossible at this point. Each year we age, we harden this wiring and pattern, making it more difficult to break the mold.



    17 Modules That Will Change Your Life

    Imagine Making The Biggest Progress Of Your Life In The Next 12 Months

    We know from first hand experience that people need to be guided and encouraged on a regular basis to actually make lasting changes to their lives. We have personally attended many seminars and personal development workshops that were impactful and potentially life-changing. However, we watched the attendees return to their prior patterns within weeks or months of leaving the workshop. Lasting change failed to last for months, let alone years or the rest of their lives.

    This is not an acceptable outcome considering how important an opportunity it was to help those people change their entire future. Master Sheryl and I have trained over 5000 adults in Kung Fu and Tai Chi. Hundreds of them have continued to practice and personally develop for more than a decade, 2 to 3 times a week. These people unanimously credit our program with making huge positive changes in their lives. These are changes that are permanent, not just lasting a few weeks or months.

    With the creation of the THE WORKSHOP we are fulfilling a dream of creating a program that more directly addresses personal transformation and development. We are using our 30 years history of keeping people on a long term path to impart new lessons that go way beyond martial art training. We will help you: discover your purpose, define life-goals, repair behavioral coping behaviors and tune-up your thoughts and psirit for the journey.
