Join us on campus!
At the Second Breath Center (in Greensboro, North Carolina), we offer courses, workshops and speaker events. Join us for a day, a weekend or a full term! All of our on-campus offerings give you the opportunity to experience the power of our curriculum in person, alongside a community of other students and faculty members who share the desire to live free and full lives, rich with meaning.
In addition to our four core classes — which share the theme “There is no great outer work without great inner work” — we offer workshops and training sessions onsite during the summer and also are available for weekend training at your site. Contact us to learn more. Ready to enroll? Reserve your spot!
Are you coming from out of town? While in Greensboro, there is much to explore and enjoy, from our vibrant downtown with restaurants, breweries, theatres and shopping to numerous parks, bike trails and cultural opportunities.
Featured course: Outward Journey
This class is about discerning your “deep gladness” at your current stage of life. Through reflection, exploration of our gifts, engagement of spiritual practices, and dialogue, we ask: What is the particular piece of God’s dream that has been specifically entrusted to me? What has my entire life, to this point, prepared me for? The work of this class will enable you to live more freely and fully, with purpose and meaning in the world. Learn more
