Passion + Tools + Boundaries = Radical Rescuer

The world is in pain. Addiction. Mental health struggles. Abuse. Identity crises and non-stop relational drama. How will you show up to help the needs of the people you influence? Unlike any other experience, Rescue Academy will teach you the techniques to launch epic amounts of life change without losing yourself in the process. What will you leave Rescue Academy with? Strategic tools. Personal growth. Tons of "aha" moments, doodles and new friends. But most of all, you will leave with the courage to change the world with love.
