Our programs and retreats are designed for experienced and discerning individuals, those who are very familiar with personal-growth work and are ready for what’s next in terms of deepening their degree of fulfillment, maturing spiritual wisdom, and elevating themselves to their highest and greatest human virtues. Human nature is paradoxical and the choices we make about which facets of this paradox we empower and which we rise above are vital to sustaining our well-being and empowering ourselves to be fully alive, enthusiastic and in deep gratitude for all that life brings to us and takes from us. The following programs have been delivered to thousands of individuals around the world for over three decades. (NOTE: All our programs and services are based upon a development model designed by Val Jon Farris called The AwaresSphere. (To learn about its relevance to human and spiritual development, click here.)

The “Sacred Time 5-Day Retreat”  
Join author Val Jon Farris for his 5-day “Sacred Time” retreat being hosted in the UNESCO World Heritage town of San Miguel de Allende. “Sacred Time” is an ancient term used by the Maya, Aztec and Toltec civilizations to describe a way of living one’s life between, below and beyond the confines of our familiar understanding of reality. These exclusive five-day “life expeditions” are designed for professionals, business leaders, executives and successful entrepreneurs who are seeking what’s next in terms of living a deeper, more sacred and fulfilling life.

The “Flourish 5-Day Retreat”  
Join author Val Jon Farris in San Miguel de Allende for his 5-day “Flourish Experience” retreat designed specifically for women.  Step out of the static and story of your life as you’ve known it.  Engage in an intimate immersive, interactive experience to root your life and your gender in deeper meaning, connection and contribution. Connect to the infinite wisdom of the Seed of the Soul ™ that dwells within you to access your deepest calling and highest self. Transform adversity to fulfillment and enjoy a more empowered and joyous life.

Our VIP SupraSelf Life Mentoring Program 
The SupraSelf Life Mentoring Program is a deeply powerful life-changing process.  This transformational engagement reaches deep into your inner greatness and capacity to redefine who you are at the core level so you are fully capable of producing extraordinary results in your life. Our mentoring clientele includes hundreds of Fortune 50 executives, enterprise-level country leaders, global thought leaders and world-class entrepreneurs.

The Stones of Truth 
The Stones of Truth is a powerful journey into the very core of one’s being.  It is an illuminating process of authentic inner and outer reality for all those on the path of human and spiritual fulfillment. The power of the Stones comes from the paradoxical truth that all of Creation as a whole dwells within each of its vast multitude of parts, everything from the micro to the macro, and from all that dwells within, to all that exists without.  In other words, the stone configurations that arise in the readings are a glimpse into the sacred relationship between our finite presence and our infinite nature.

 

Axis Mundi Retreat Center
Located in the World UNSECO town of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, the Axis Mundi Retreat Center offers a diverse portfolio of programs and services including personal development workshops, VIP mentoring, guided expeditions to sacred sites, and world-class leadership curriculum for entrepreneurs and corporate executives. Our facility is also available for rent to host your own retreats and events.

Expeditions Into Spirit 
Experience the adventure of a lifetime by venturing out to some of the most extraordinary destinations on the planet! Our Expeditions Into Spirit combine the thrill of engaging in recreational activities such as sailing, scuba diving, snorkling, hiking at some of the world’s most stunning locations with the enthusiasm of exploring the most remarkable sacred sites on Earth. As with all our programs, the expeditions listed below are only scheduled based on demand. When we have enough interest for a destination we contact those who’ve expressed a desire to participate with details.

 Professional Enterprise-Level Programs
Our enterprise-level consulting, resources and programs have been delivered to over 50,000 Fortune 100 executives, managers and individual contributors. Outdated hierarchical “leader-follower” strategies are no longer viable in a marketplace thriving on collaboration, innovation and dynamic engagement. Today’s leaders must develop the resource of “collective greatness,” a personal and cultural transformation in which every worker becomes a leader within their own right and “owns” the success of the whole.  Our enterprise programs can be delivered in multiple formats and span workforces ranging from 100 to 10,000 employees.

    “I would rarely consider working with someone in this capacity besides my husband but I intuited that Val Jon would lend the objectivity and spiritual altitude I was seeking and I did not question my ‘hit’ Val Jon instantly created a safe, sacred and laser light of truth space. He just SAW me, saw things he could not have known had he not countenanced it from on high. He was loving, insightful, challenging (in a good way) and kept referencing me back to my own guidance.”

    Alisha Hayes

    “Outstanding, the best mentoring I have ever experienced. Val Jon Farris is an experienced coach who teaches from the heart. This mentoring program delivered big value and it showed me things that would be very hard to get any other way.”

    Alberto Golbert

    Latin America Continent HR Director, Hewlett-Packard Company

    “Val Jon completely got who I was on our first meeting.  Using the “Stones of Truth” he helped me to explore some deep issues I had around my well-being, success, and relationships.  It was quite extraordinary.  After we worked together things have shifted profoundly and one family issue around my son that was very painful for me is almost healed and a large business deal that I had written off resurfaced the week after.”

    Carlos Apollonio
