My perspective on life and my place in the world changed entirely when I went to Breakthrough Weekend. I've never learned so much about myself in such a short time. I walked in feeling broken and I left feeling connected and loved and capable.

Breakthrough Weekend is a three-day experience in Gainesville, Florida, in which you will challenge your limiting beliefs and expand your emotional agility. You will have healthy, supported experiences with grief, anger, shame, forgiveness, and play. Learn how you can discover purpose, connection, confidence, and self-love.


You will participate in small and large experiential group exercises led by licensed mental health professionals and trained life coaches. The exercises are based on a theoretical framework of Alfred Adler and Gestalt Therapy.


After your first course as a student, you are invited to return in future courses to assist. Assisting solidifies and continues your learning and there is no additional tuition associated with it. Our assistants create a supportive and powerful community of wellness.
