What’s next in your lifelong Learning Journey?

These potent times in our lives and world stretch and inspire us to expand the scope of our capacity for learning, wisdom, mindfulness and heart-fullness, in order to skillfully respond to the enormous challenges and embrace the profoundly inspiring opportunities we are being offered.

  • Are you searching for relevant and meaningful transformational learning experiences that encompasses a holistic-integral view of life and are grounded in discerning science, deep wisdom lineage, and real world applications?

  • Are you seeking mentors with high integrity, deep experience in personal AND social/organization/community transformation – who are also accessible enough for you to develop a personal, meaningful, and on-going relationship with?

  • Have you realized that personal transformation without social transformation – and social transformation without personal transformation — simply makes no sense in today’s world?

  • Would you be nourished by the intimate inspirational camaraderie of kindred colleagues who are dedicated to exploration, experimentation, and deep practice within a thriving learning community?

If these reflections are resonant for you,
then the Leveys’ Wisdom at Work Learning Expeditions
are worthy of your attention & participation.

“The work of Joel and Michelle Levey has long been a luminous thread in the fabric of the Great Turning. They embody in many ways this epochal transition to a life-sustaining society.” 

– Joanna Macy, Deep Ecologist, Activist, and Scholar


“There is almost a sensual longing for communion with others who have a large vision. The immense fulfillment of the friendship between those engaged in furthering the evolution of consciousness has a quality impossible to describe.”    ~ Teilhard de Chardin

As the circumstances of our lives, world, society, economy, and environment become ever more disrupted in these “VUCA” times of increasing Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, and Ambiguity, it is becoming increasingly clear that to thrive – in what is also being called “The Time of the Great Unraveling” and “The Time of the Great Turning” – that “business as usual” will not be sufficient for any of us, our organizations, or communities.

As Einstein reminds us, the solutions to the complex challenges in our lives and world will not be found at the same levels of thinking or consciousness that created them! A substantially new level of consciousness is needed if humanity is to survive – and thrive – and the means to personally and collectively realize these new levels of consciousness are available for anyone sufficiently motivated to learn and practice them.

It’s time for a revolutionary approach to developing ourselves for the Journey to come and this Learning Expedition is about realizing our “extra-ordinary” potentials!



We envision this Learning Expedition experience as an intimate, in-depth, on-going, reflective, embodied, and practice-oriented learning community made up of a diverse, caring, kindred souls coming together to form a mutually nourishing community of practice dedicated to bringing benefit to the fields of influence, communities, movements, and organisations that we serve.

Given the rich mix of complex forces, challenges, and opportunities at play in our lives and world at this time, this learning expedition will be inspired by the principles and practices of creative altruism associated with a fierce dedication to awaken to our True Nature and Highest Potentials in order to inspire, activate, and awaken these latent potentials within all beings. The deep science and universal principles and practices at the heart of this curriculum provides inspiration and clear guidance for how to deepen our wisdom and move beyond the barriers of our isolating self-concern, by expanding our frame of reference to care for the welfare of all beings. 


Join Us

Our vision is that the benefit, inspiration, and blessing that each of us receives on this Learning Expedition will ripple out into our world in beneficial ways that far exceed our imagination.

“In this era, to become a spiritual inquirer without social consciousness is a luxury that we can ill afford, and to be a social activist without a scientific understanding of the inner workings of the mind is the worst folly. Neither approach in isolation has had any significant success.”

~ Vimala Thakar



We will gather together for 5 sessions over the course of a year to fifteen months.   Each session-retreat will span 4 days and will include times of teaching and co-learning…deep reflection…silence…heartfelt sharing…and time in beautiful natural surroundings.

European sessions will be held at a variety of venues throughout Europe and the UK depending on the season and availability of suitable venues in beautiful natural surroundings.

North American Sessions will be based mostly at the Leveys’ lovely home and learning center in Seattle with perhaps 2 or 3 sessions in other locations.

Please let us know of your interest as soon as possible. Launch dates will be announced when we have a “critical mass” of people signed up for these sessions - hopefully Spring of 2019.

In addition to our face-to-face sessions we’ll also deepen in our learning via:   

–       Monthly meaningful digital meet-ups on a Zoom platform
–       Weekly or biweekly reflective-dialogues with learning partners
–       Personal mentoring sessions with Joel and Michelle
–       Access to a Slack-site-based treasure trove of mind-stretching and heart-opening curriculum of deep reflective questions and inspiring media that will inform, inspire, and expand the scope and dimensions of our explorations together.

The learning experiences and treasury of inspiring resources for this learning expedition is distilled from a myriad of ancient and contemporary sources and wisdom traditions, reflecting our best curated sense of the most relevant inspirations, accessible resources, skillfull methods, and illuminating perspectives available to inspire our lives and work in these threshold times.

Like all expeditions, this one begins with a clear and thoughtful plan and clear sense of direction.  As we share this Journey and begin to discover the wisdom, gifts, interests, and strengths of our fellow-explorers, we anticipate that this learning expedition will also be shaped through our collective interests and engagement, and that it will morph, adapt, and emerge in its unique form and spirit of adventure.

On our own life-journey we have been fortunate to have studied deeply and widely with beloved and esteemed mentors from many different modern and ancient wisdom traditions, and we’ll offer our best blend and integration of these enlightening, liberating, life-affirming traditions that have such extreme relevance, profound practicality, and deep meaning for our lives, work, leadership, learning, and activism in these profound complex times.
