This training format pulls students out of their usual surroundings into the bucolic rolling farmland of Central Wisconsin. Set in the gentility - and realness - of the Lazy I Ranch with hosts (and GL manager) Tracy Hovde and Mark Triebold, students attend two ten-day periods - one in June and one in August. Under the eaves of a modernized barn loft, on the soft tree-lined lawn bordered by flower and vegetable gardens, and with the gaze of the watchful Scottish Highland cattle and prize chickens, students witness firsthand how being in nature supports learning and joining together in a sangha. Options for lodging on the property and meal plans are available. Like all of our 200-hour programs, this program offers the same dynamic and highly rated content and experienced senior and supporting faculty who are dedicated to helping you develop your authentic teaching voice.

As you know, I came into teacher training with hopes to find a physical activity to be passionate about. What I am experiencing is so much more than that and I am grateful beyond words. I wondered if you asked yourselves the question that I ask myself; I am a making a difference in my work? I just wanted to express that my experience with the Green Lotus community is making a difference in my life.
