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!
