A transformative journey for seekers, wanderers, and mystic misfits.

What is Spiritual Off-Roading?

A Journey into Unknowing

Explore the wide world beyond stale structures and rigid beliefs. The Spiritual Off-Roading program is a live, 4-month journey into sacred living.

 

A Guide

Be accompanied by an experienced guide who has been there-- who has been through hell and back and is now happily off-roading. Receive the insight and assurance you need while exploring uncharted territory.

 

A Tribe

Find other seekers who speak your language and share the same secret longings. Priority will be placed on forming connections and relationships that will last.

 

Tools for the Wilderness

We won't be showing you a new path out here-- there are no maps in the wilderness-- but we will equip you with the tools you need to explore on your own with confidence... and a bit of sacred mischief. ;)

 

Transformative vs. Informative

Answering questions is nice, but living them is even better.  If you've had your fill of books and courses, join us for the gritty and REAL experience of living it all in your BONES.

LET ME KNOW WHEN THE NEXT ADVENTURE BEGINS

 

Explore the

Wide World of Unknowing

with Confidence

 

(and maybe a bit of mischief)

Are you a spiritual off-roader?

 

Do you crave depth? UNION?

 

Find you’ve outgrown the fences and guardrails, and hunger for the untamed beauty of Unknowing?

 

Are you hungry for connection with kindred spirits?

 

Spiritual Off-Roading was designed by contemplative leaders who were struck by the hunger they were finding everywhere. Seekers and mystic misfits alike were trying to express that inexpressible longing for something wider, deeper, fuller. 

Have you ever found yourself questioning:

What does it mean to be whole? 

 

Am I alone? Does anyone else get this--get me?

 

How do I live in the chaos of this year and let it break me open instead of break me apart?

 

And ultimately, how do I trust the Mystery?

We've designed the Spiritual Off-Roading Program just for you.

We've combined our experience as spiritual directors, professional coaches, pastors, along with our years of falling apart and being put back together--and turned it into a program that you won't find anywhere else.

 

It will provide you with the tools you need to navigate the Unknown.

 

It will provide you with a guide who has years of experience in working through all those sticky spots (craving intimacy? how to be whole? what's my next step??).

 

All with a tribe of people who want the same thing you do.

 

What are you waiting for?

If so, you're not alone.

Life has been completely disorienting. We get it! Our normal routines have not been cutting it. And we're not here to tell you that we have all the answers, the magic formula to make it stop hurting.

But we are here to tell you: It does not have to be this way.

It does not have to be so bewildering. So isolating.

While we cannot take away your personal burden, we can be with you in it, and show you the tools that the ancients have used to survive their own plagues, crises, and worlds turned upside down.

There is so much more life to be lived! The divine is hovering over the deep, glistening with possibility. 

It may feel like a vast chasm, ready to swallow you whole; but what if it were actually a well of mercy?

What if, hidden within the pain, is an invitation to become who the world needs you to be?

Come, join us.

LANDSCAPES WE'LL EXPLORE:
Illustrated Map

1. Vulnerability

Crave connection with kindred spirits? Or long for companions on the journey, with whom you can be safe and vulnerable? In this module, you're invited to meet your cohort, share your sacred story, and use proven methods to craft connections that will last. 

2. Discernment

Ever get stuck in the spin cycle? Perhaps you're discerning a big career move, or how to help your family navigate the current health crisis. In this module, discover the only tools you'll need to make decisions with lightness and clarity.

4. Divine Intimacy

 In the culmination of the journey, discover what it means to open yourself to raw, unadulterated union with the divine. Through the wisdom of the mystics, you may learn that it's different than you once thought.

3. Embodiment

 Your body has a bottomless wisdom that is waiting to be tapped into. Through the grit of sacramentality, attentive body practice, and exploring what it means to be sexual beings, you'll inhabit your own skin like never before.  

EACH MONTH YOU'LL RECEIVE:

Custom Field Guides

Receive video, audio, and/or written content that matches our monthly themes. It will be available on our platform and emailed to you so you can read and watch at a time that works best for you. And, so you can give it all the time it needs to percolate! 

A Campfire Session

Huddle round with your tribe and hear what the landscape has been waking in each other. We'll begin with a shared practice to ground us all, and then have space to dialogue, question, and wonder about this month's theme. 

Individualized Deep Dives

Meet with a guide dedicated to your growth. With a trained set of eyes, they can help you notice patterns of the landscape and where it may be inviting you. Want to go farther up and further in? Select the Accelerated package, and receive TWO Deep Dives each month! Dig deep with one guide the whole time, or hop around to sample each of their gifts.

Traveling Partners

Walk alongside a fellow off-roader and form lifelong relationships! After our monthly Campfire Session, you'll be invited to connect with one of your tribe members in a way that fits your schedule and comfort levels. Everyone is here because they want something real, raw, and meaningful--so we'll provide ample space for that to happen.

Base Camp 

Base Camp is the online platform where you can find resources, conversation, and occasional tomfoolery. Stop in to find monthly content, links to our calls, schedule your Deep Dive, and check in with your other tribe members.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

 

I felt so heard and seen, which is really rare. It was refreshing, and powerful.

 

You gave me an idea of a map of where I’m headed, and I’m not going to stop.

I have had a difficult time finding an echo and companion for the journey into the more mysterious and wild places of my heart, so to find someone as equipped as Kelly felt like a true miracle to me.

I encourage you to open your hands and allow this gift to enter your life, you will receive far more than it costs. I’m sure of it.

Your Questions Answered

How will the group sessions be structured?


At the beginning of each month, you will be given a "field guide" to help you explore that month's topic, or landscape. This will include some combination of video, written reflection, and journaling questions. This will give you some time to chew before we discuss as a group (any fellow ruminators here?). The group Campfire sessions will begin with 5-10 minutes of shared practice. This will allow us to settle into the landscape and give space for shared presence. The rest of the time will be for discussion, exploration, and connection around what the landscape has awoken in you that month. After each call, you will be invited to connect with a traveling partner in the following weeks. This is a chance to connect on a deeper level, get to know your fellow off-roaders better, and unpack all the goodness between the Campfires.




Is there a guarantee?


Yes... The Spiritual Off-Roading Program has a 30-day off-roading guarantee. If you don't receive massive value in this program-- new insights, connections, spaces to explore--just email to let us know and we will refund your program cost. We are confident it won't come to that, but we wanted to make the decision process super easy! Either get the depth you want or you get your money back. It's as simple as that!




Is this program religious? Do I need to be a Christian to participate?


To use the vernacular, you might call this program more spiritual than religious. Or, perhaps more accurate, this program is human, in the most fundamental sense of that word. We’re seeking what it means to be fully human, fully alive. No religion, practice, or path will be preached. The wilderness is expansive. You are welcome to choose to follow a trail, but we will not be advocating any one in particular. Instead, our goal is to equip you with the tools and resources you need to explore on your own!




What if I’m not sure what I believe?


Welcome to Unknowing! :) Your questions, doubts, and quandaries are welcome here. You don’t need to have it all figured out to journey with us. You do not need to believe the same as myself or anyone else in the group; we will all be wandering and wondering together.




Is it OK if I love Jesus?


Absolutely! See above. We will make space for wherever your spiritual views lie.




What times are the group sessions? What if I cannot make it to all of them?


At present, we have arranged for two cohorts to start in September. You will be able to select which monthly call time best fits your schedule on the order page. The options are: Group sessions at 1pm CDT on Second Thursdays (Sept. 10, Oct. 8, Nov. 12, Dec. 10) Group sessions on 6pm CDT on Third Wednesdays (Sept. 16, Oct. 21, Nov. 18, Dec. 16) These group sessions are in addition to your Deep Dives (which you can schedule according to your calendar), calls with your Traveling Partner, and the Field Guides which you can access any time. All group sessions will be recorded and made available to your cohort. You are free to submit questions you’d like discussed or addressed during the call, and we will be sure to address it! Note: more cohorts may be added if there is enough interest! Shoot us an email at info@kdcoaching.org if you'd like to stay in the loop about additions.




Will there be homework?


Yes and no. Your monthly Field Guides are an invitation to read, listen, and watch various resources as we trek through the Landscape. New practices and exploration will be encouraged, both in our calls and on your own. You will also be invited to participate not only in the group calls, but also in Deep Dives with one of the guides and touch points with your traveling partner. We recommend setting aside at least an hour of time to review the Field Guide, though sitting with it may be the best way to hear what it is saying! None of the above are required, but highly encouraged if you want to get the most out of the program. That being said, the highest rule is to trust your deeper knowing: if something doesn’t feel right, skip it!
