HOW IT WORKS

Grow Through Experiment And Inquiry

The heart of AoA is the solo, partner, and group exercises conducted in cohort-based courses. The experiments are simple and powerful. Lean into the intensity for rapid results, or take it slower. You direct your journey.

Experiment and Evaluate

Run our exercises as experiments. You decide what works for you. Experiment, reflect, and watch your capacity grow rapidly.

Whole Brain + Body

Understand your complete experience– thoughts, emotions, and sensations– so you can grow without getting stuck.

Community of Practice

A community of practice is an essential ingredient for rapid growth. The best lessons often come from those learning with you.

Rapid Results, Lasting Change

"Early results in an ongoing study by a Harvard researcher indicate that participants in AoA’s flagship course show a reduction in measures of negative emotionality, an increase in trait openness as measured by FFM, and an increase in flourishing (Dinner, 2010) 3 months after course completion.”

What Our Students Say

Taking Joe’s courses has had a tremendously positive impact on my life. My personal relationships are more fulfilling, my business is growing, and most importantly, I have the tools I need to be a great dad. Seeing these changes happen while taking Joe’s courses feels magical.

I realized that my fear of conflict was preventing me from holding my team at work accountable. I learned a new approach to accountability, and far from creating new conflict, the team loves it. These tools have the powerful ability to turn what might otherwise be a tense conversation into a productive discussion where both sides feel understood.

After taking Joe’s classes, it seems crazy to me that this type of teaching isn’t more widespread. If it were, the world would be a more peaceful, happier place.
