Prerequisites prior to arrival at the seminar

  • You must watch the Crash Course (yes, the whole thing)
  • You must complete the self-assessment 


The conference center is both remote and rustic, yet has all the necessary facilities for a great weekend seminar.  Our experience at Rowe is that a sense of isolation from the rest of the world helps to create the right environment for the learnings and discussions we will be conducting. 



Seminar Description

The seminar builds upon the Crash Course.  We will spend minimal time on the details of the existing Crash Course material itself, instead focusing on the larger implications of the material as well as on new data and conclusions.

We will provide you with tools that you can use to identify where people (yourself included) are in the process of adjusting to the new reality.  This will help you take actions to prepare yourself, locate and work with others who share your outlook.   We will provide training on how to go from "alone" to "connected" using the extensive trial and error experiences of Chris and Becca as a model.

In parallel, we will examine the closely held, and often unexamined, beliefs that prevent us from believing our own eyes and taking necessary actions.

The basic elements we will cover are (note: this is not the agenda):

  • The Crash Course major themes, their interconnections and implications
  • Inflation vs Deflation
  • Derivatives
  • Other current events that are currently in the news
  • "Our Story" - What Chris and Becca did to prepare and how they did it 
  • The Six Stages of Awareness (in greater detail)
  • Working through the Self-Assessment worksheets in small group settings
  • Separating facts, opinions, and beliefs
  • Limiting vs. enhancing beliefs - which do you hold right now?
  • The Crash Course Toolbox
  • Predicaments vs problems
  • Naming fears
  • A vision for the future
  • Operating in groups - the importance of community
  • The path forward

Each of these either represents a discrete seminar element or a thread that will be woven throughout the weekend.  We may add or subtract elements before or during the seminar if warranted.
