Quiet Park Series: Boundary Waters Canoe Area
4 Day(s) 3 Night(s)
Quiet Park Series
There are more stress-triggering stimuli today than ever before….
Yet we’re operating on the same hardware we always have. The list below are common consequences; maybe you’re experiencing some?
Hi, Anthony Lorubbio here. I’m a two-time founder, three-time CEO, and the guy behind Recal. I experienced some business success early in my career, but along that journey I often felt distracted, disconnected, and lacking a greater purpose behind my work.
I went looking for answers, and I found tools that changed my life. I then began to share them with others and found this problem is massive — there’s an entire field of study into this called the Mismatch Theory of Evolution. In short, modern-day stimuli are overwhelming our ages-old operating system.
I launched Recal, which is short for recalibrate, to get the tools that work for me — breathwork, nature, travel, cold exposure, mindfulness, community, and more — into the hands of people like you to better navigate stressors and live a more fulfilling and intentional life. That’s my hope for you, at least!
You can apply below. Our max group size is 12 (and we may keep it smaller).
If accepted, you'll join other members on our coach-led journey, deep into the tools and pillars of Recal.
Coaching, community, and nature. A better recipe for navigating the issues brought on by our modern way of living.
From here, you'll be equipped to live a more fulfilling, mindful life.
Drop your info below and you'll be directed to the application.
Your coaches are here to guide the way.
Spanning from different backgrounds and each influencing a different pillar of our Mastermind group,
they will help facilitate your hands-on learning, feeling, and experiencing of the methods.
They will be a consistent resource for you throughout the six months and on the Recal trip.
Briony is a certified mindset coach, seasoned meditation teacher, and facilitator across multiple breathwork disciplines.
Tara Jenkins is the founder and CEO of Conscious Revolution and co-lead of the Portland Conscious Capitalism Chapter.
Pedro is an experienced and highly accomplished health, wellness, performance, and breathwork coach.
We believe that living life with intention and purpose means unlocking all of what the human experience has to offer, tapping into what you’re really meant for and not putting effort into a slew of unintentional results.
Our goal is to provide highly productive, professionally ambitious individuals like you with nature and science-based tools to unlock a more fulfilling and mindful way of living and working in the modern world. Our community is full of people that have worked hard, hit the milestones toward success, achieved some financial reward, yet aren’t quite feeling that sense of fulfillment and happiness they expected.
The price is $9,500 per person. This investment includes the entire 6-month hands-on program, including the Recal Trip as our ‘capstone.’
50% of your investment is due after your acceptance.
The remaining 50% is due 90 days in advance of the group Recal trip.
If your employer is covering this investment as continuing education or executive leadership development, we’re happy to provide documentation of the program and its benefits.
We combine adventure travel with breathwork and other mindfulness practices to recalibrate your nervous system. Each trip is co-hosted by a group of independently-owned, racially inclusive, and sustainability-minded outfitters, in tandem with a Recal Coach. You can view our trips below:
