Real LIFE Boot Camp

June 7 @ 9:00 am - June 9 @ 12:30 pm MDT

June 7 -9, 2024
Salt Lake City, Utah

The Real LIFE Bootcamp is a 2 1⁄2 day in-person skill-building intensive for working with people. The proposition underlying this training is that bettering your people skills means bettering your relationship to yourself. It involves awareness, work, play, and not knowing. This training is based on action-learning: learning by doing in a feedback-rich environment. It is highly experiential and engages the group in dialogue and exercises to awaken our understanding and capacity to work with challenging occasions, turning them to opportunities for deeper bonding and growth.

The Boot Camp experience weaves in live demonstrations and unique “pointing out” instructions, making the subtle group dynamics more visible to everyone. And because this is a training environment you will have opportunities to practice facilitating group conversations and receive real-time coaching and feedback from your lead trainers, coaches, and peers.


  • Integral Practice: The ability to seek, take, and integrate perspectives
  • Self Development: Using your own awareness, emotional intelligence, and presence as a barometer for working with your group
  • Attention to Energy:  Sensing the energetic qualities in the room (more than what people say) such as coherence, differentiation, vitality, or sluggishness, in order to better serve the whole.

The Real LIFE Bootcamp will emphasize conversation in the culture wars, because us-versus-them is one of the deadliest forces on the planet, fracturing our relationships and fragmenting our meaning-making.


  • Seeing clearly over group think
  • Creative tension over polarization
  • Meaningful expression over policing of speech
  • Flex flow over identity politics
  • Productive over damaging conflict
  • Human contact rather than ideology


  • 18 hours of live instruction, practice, and Q&A with gifted facilitators Diane Musho Hamilton and Gabriel Wilson
  • Live demonstrations with real-time commentary to make group dynamics visible
  • Sessions to practice group facilitation and receive real-time coaching and feedback
  • Access to mp3 audio files of all teaching sessions
