Your Host and Master Coaches and The Habits of Health Transformational System (Dr. A’s Habits of Health, Your Life Book and app) by NY Times bestselling author Dr. Wayne Scott Andersen, and will be your guides.  
There are four independent, but interconnected modules.  
Each module consists of four monthly sessions including one all-day, in-person session and three 90-minute virtual sessions. Each module builds on the previous learning and growth, so we encourage you to take all four modules, but you may take as many as you like.

In-Person gatherings will start with our Host Coaches guiding you to recognize your current situation for that topic, contemplate why you want to transform, identify what you want to create, and strategize how to get it. We will break for a catered lunch and reenergizing movement and quiet time. Then our talented Master Coaches will guide you using their gifts to enable you to go deeper in knowing, accepting, and transforming. In-Person gatherings will be:

  • Facilitated by our Host and Master Coaches
  • Located in the auditorium at SouthWest Metro High School, 401 East 4th St. Chaska, MN
  • Run from 9:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. CT on the designated Saturdays.
