Duration:  
3 days - 3 nights  (Thursday 6PM  -  Sunday 12PM)
With the intensity of these workshops participants often report this to be the best schedule for maximizing their experience.  We always recommend after completing  a workshop that  when participants return home to take a day to process and reintegrate back into life.  

We recommend Phase 2 occurring about 4 - 6 months after the first workshop. It is scheduled by you and your survivor family group. If members of the group decide not to continue, we can place you with another group that is ready for the next phase.
