Everything you do in LYR2 is tied to real work with real results for real people. LYR2 is three times the responsibility of LEAPYEAR at less than 1/5th the cost!

The cost of LEAPYEAR2 is only $6,900 and academic credit is optional. Academic credit can be earned through a number of universities, or it can be left out of your program.  Need-based scholarships are available to bring participation within reach for just about anyone.

Past LYR2 students have held the container for LEAPYEAR students, helped build a 550 ft2 building and bathroom at Maacama, run the LEAPYEAR kitchen, helped students find and land their internships, and raised over $15,000 to travel to north India for 6 weeks to create a "goat bank," fight sex trafficking and support the work of an Indian organization called Guria. LYR2 projects support the journey of LEAPYEAR students, change the world for organizations chosen by the LYR2 students, and help move Maacama toward greater beauty and sustainability. LEAPYEAR2 is your opportunity to change the world while continuing your education in a way that is designed for yourself.

The intent of LYR is to give students the opportunity to:

  • Learn to create and hold a learning “container” for others – practice this with the daily challenge of holding the container for 7 LEAPYEAR retreats and ~50 LEAPYEAR students.

  • Take your personal self-development a major step forward - attaining a higher degree of integration of body, mind, emotion and spirit.  Learn to show up in your fullness each day.

  • Design and carry out a learning plan that is unique to your needs - self-design your education.

  • Gain practical teaching and group facilitation experience while learning skills of creative, embodied leadership.

  • Learn to identify and overcome your personal roadblocks to creativity, wholeness and/or motivation.

  • Practice engaging your imagination and creativity while using your body as a vehicle for experiential, transforming education
