Frequently Asked Questions

General

Who are your typical clients?

We asked Ryzio’s founders, who have been leading similar programs for decades: “We can honestly say we have people of all ages and all walks of life, both male and female. From athletes to entrepreneurs, from corporate executives to life coaches, and from emergency care professionals to actors and entertainers, the program is for anyone who wants more in life and is motivated to change. Also, these are often people who are called to make a difference in the world.”

Does Ryzio have a particular approach?

Ryzio’s approach is based on the latest research breakthroughs in neuroscience, Polyvagal Theory, mindfulness, attachment and trauma, together with traditional and leading-edge practices provided by skilled professionals. We use science-based experiential and applied methods to help you move from where you are to where you want to be. You will learn how to live beyond old programming that may be holding you back, gain skills to calm anxiety, confidence to step into more of who you truly are and bring your gifts into the world. You’ll begin to master tools to help you gain confidence, create more meaningful relationships and be more successful in every area of your life.

How is Ryzio different from other programs?

The latest research from a number of disciplines tells us that in order to change our lives we must do more than learn concepts. We must go beyond ideas and thinking. We must actually experience who we are and what is possible. All the Ryzio programs are based in experience. These include experiences of safety, self-awareness and self-care.

Where can I read more about this?

Here’s an overview of our philosophy from our founders, Ken Bruer and Dr. Marti Glenn. Then try this article and this article, to start. You can also listen to a podcast from Dr. Glenn here.

Do you recommend taking your three programs in sequence?

It is not necessary to take the three programs in sequence. Some people only take one or two of our offerings, and each program may be taken several times.
During our current time of social distancing, we may not be able to offer the 3-Month Experience for a while, and the shorter programs are offered exclusively as virtual experiences.

Why wouldn't I take this program several times instead of moving on to the 3-Month program?

Each program offers unique experiences, many of which build on each other. As with any meaningful endeavor we undertake, we need to map the territory, gather skills and tools and then actually experience the full journey. We are happy to speak with you privately about your particular desires and needs. Call (877) 642-5656 to schedule a FREE consultation.

3-Month Transform with Love Experience

Ok, so tell me about the Ryzio 3-Month program

The Ryzio Transform Your Life with Love Experience includes three phases:

  1. We begin with a virtual coaching session where you will gain clarity about your goals and receive resources to prepare for your Experience. This also helps us craft the most effective program for your individual needs.
  2. Next is the 7-day intensive retreat where you will be supported to reach your goals.
  3. Following the retreat is your 10-week virtual program where you will have weekly individual coaching, group sessions, resources and support to help you integrate and grow your new experience of yourself and your world.

What does it cost?

Your investment for the Ryzio 3-Month Experience is $9,500 and includes both the intensive retreat and the remote program. The price includes all retreat activities, specifically:

  • Transportation to and from Sky Harbor International Airport, Phoenix
  • Your private hotel room at our luxury “dude ranch” hotel facility
  • All meals and snacks
  • Seven days of group and individual sessions and all retreat materials and activities

The remote program component provides an additional 10 weeks of support, including individual and group sessions and weekly support materials.

NOTE: You may arrange discounted rates with the Ranch, should you wish to spend additional nights there after the retreat portion of the program. Many of our clients enjoy taking advantage of the beautiful golf course, full-service spa, horseback riding, hiking trails and nature walks.

Is taking the 3-Hour and/or 3-Day Experience(s) a prerequisite to enrolling in this program?

No, you may enroll in our 3-Month Experience without doing any prior work with Ryzio. We would be glad to discuss your situation with you to assist you in deciding which program is best for you. Call (877) 642-5656 to schedule a FREE consultation.

What does “retreat” mean? Where does it take place?

The Retreat portion of the 3-Month Experience is a temporary step back from the demands of the world. We help you use that time to take a look at some aspects of your life that you may not have been able to successfully address thus far. We do this in a luxury resort in Wickenburg, Arizona, an hour northwest of Phoenix. Your private room, all meals and snacks, and transportation from Sky Harbor International Airport as well as the ten-week follow-up program are included in the tuition.

You said food is included at the retreat—will they accommodate my diet?

Our food, provided by the ranch’s upscale restaurant, is healthy and delicious without being restrictive. We can accommodate vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free diets. Fruit, drinks, coffee and light snacks are always available.

What are the retreat accommodations like?

Rancho de los Caballeros is a four-star “dude ranch” in the desert foothills of Wickenburg, Arizona. The rooms are well-appointed with a Southwestern feel. They have calming desert views, porches, refrigerators, microwaves and free wi-fi. Besides the rambling lobbies and dining areas, there’s a pool and spa, large horse stables and other dude ranch amenities. More on the ranch is available here.

What happens on a typical day?

Each day begins with optional activities like yoga, meditation, or a walk, and then a healthy breakfast.

We meet at 9 a.m. in the Large Group with all retreat participants and staff members present. On most days, you’ll have a session with your personal coach and one or two sessions in your Small Group. You will also have some time to focus on processes that are specifically designed for you. There are breaks, and of course, a delicious and healthy lunch and dinner.

The environment is structured—we’re not here to waste your time or your money—but entirely relaxed, mutually supportive, engaging and often fun.

More about the 3-Month Program

How far away is the airport?

We pick you up at Phoenix’s Sky Harbor International Airport. It’s about an hour by van, a little longer at evening rush hour.

What do we do at night?

Our retreats are intensive. There are sessions each evening, though, of course, there are dinner and snack breaks. But it is not exhaustive. During the day our participants have extended breaks to focus on their goals and experiences. There’s also limited discretionary time to enjoy the facilities.

How many people attend each session?

We have a maximum of 24 clients. Up to nine coaches are on hand for a full session. We maintain a client-to-coach ratio of three to one to ensure that everyone has plenty of individual time with his or her personal coach on a daily basis.

Are computers, tablets and smartphones allowed?

Of course, though they are not used during the retreat sessions. At the retreat you will be taking time away from your everyday life to delve deeply into what you really want and what you need to do to transform your life. We therefore encourage you to limit your contact with the outside world. Except in case of emergency, we encourage you to be as media-free as possible during the retreat and give yourself fully to the work so that you may glean as much as possible from your time away.

How does the retreat end? What time should I plan for my departing flight?

After a final session on the morning of the seventh day, the vans start heading to the airport. You’re safe with flights leaving noon or later on the departure day.

What happens after the retreat?

At Ryzio, we want to ensure your complete success in achieving the full transformation you desire. To that end, your Ryzio Retreat is just the first step in our program that will help you deepen and maintain the experiences and skills you received during your retreat.

Throughout your entire Ryzio experience you will garner and cultivate a set of tools and resources to help you integrate and apply all you’ve learned. The remote portion following your retreat includes video conference calls, audio downloads, and materials to further deepen your experience. During this time you will also enjoy the benefit of on-going contact with Ryzio coaches and your colleagues.

When is the next session?

Scheduled sessions vary. For the most up-to-date 3-Hour Ignite with Love Experience sessions, see the BOOK NOW page. If you have additional questions please Contact Us for more information.
