Inner Axis teacher trainings are designed to inspire teachers of transformation who will help to bring about both personal and global changes.

The capacity for personal transformation is present in each of us, yet it is often hidden beneath the surface, neglected by the demands and routine of our daily life. The Inner Axis training will teach you how to guide ordinary people through the experience of extraordinary transformation.
