Deep Dive in the Sun with Ken

Being outside matters. Being in motion matters. 
Co-creating together with someone you trust matters. 
Your best life matters

That’s what this is about.

Now that I’ve moved to California, I want to take advantage of the geography of California and offer you a chance to crack the nut you’ve really wanted to crack, to spend some focused time away from your everyday life, to take our partnering to the next level. 

Everyone is different and I can customize a program just for you. Here is where we bring the topic you need to work on the most, the stubborn one, the one that has kept you from taking the big steps you want for yourself. 

What’s the agenda: You’ll arrive the night before and get settled. The next two days will be customized to your specific requests.

Where we’ll be: You’ll select a location and we’ll find an Airbnb or hotel that will serve as our home base. 

The coaching, lunches, and dinners will only be $1000 total for both days. The other costs (hotel, airfare, other food, and transportation) are your responsibility. I’m happy to manage and bill them to you or allow you to book on your own. $500 deposit required.

About Authentic Development

I am a coach. You may have guessed that the work that I do is my life. I love it at the core of who I am and want nothing more than a deeply “alive” life for my clients and for the world. I believe one on one coaching works and helps us to change. I also believe that retreats—specifically with the use of nature and intimate relationships—can be the catalysts that change lives. My life has moved dramatically to deeper stages in the midst of retreats and I am excited to be offering that to my clients.
