Dōjō - 道場
A dōjō (道場) is a hall or space for immersive learning or meditation.
We honor the Dojo intention to create unique environments and experiences to learn from, challenge, and co-design with one another. At Dojo, sometimes you’re the sensei and sometimes you’re the student.
Staff Success Equals Student Success.
In a world of increasing uncertainty and career anxiety, we need practical and actionable tools to help students and ourselves step into great potential.
We teach you everything you need to implement Looping practices immediately in appointments, classrooms, and newly imagined engagements.
Here is some of what you get:
What Happens At Dōjō
Dōjō isn’t your average training event. You will master the tools and steps for Looping by using them on yourself.
Together, we will use the Looping Method to identify and inhabit shared challenges and personal goals. With intentions in hand, we explore unexpected solutions through a process for creating micro-projects in the form of small experiments.
You leave armed with an actionable plan to take back to your campus and engage your work and students in new ways.

The Mojo in your Dōjō Activation & Celebration
Who attends Dōjō?
Looping Method training is designed for emerging change agents in higher education. We look for people with the guts to explore new ideas and who lead collaboratively with a bias to action. For anyone excited about the University of tomorrow, Dōjō cultivates the mindset and tactical toolset to help bring it to life.
All our learners are actively engaged with students' success. From student affairs representing residence life, career development, or student engagement, or in academic affairs as an academic advisor.
People who work with students in liberal arts, first generation, and international students, find these tools especially helpful for decoding students' prospects and building smart social capital.
What our first class had to say.
"I want to say THANK YOU. Thank you for the opportunity to articulate and put out there my intention. That was truly the first time I said it out loud. It's been in the making for at least 3 years now and you helped me just SAY IT. I've been putting my ideas into action since that day. So THANK YOU for being you and for what you do. You truly have made a significantly positive impact in my life."
“Every single one of the exercises took me out of my comfort zone. I’m leaving inspired by new ways to think about approaching students, new questions to ask, new approaches to take, and even a new mindset to embrace."
"Loved the all the interactive aspects of the learning and that we had the freedom to discuss thoughts and ideas and explore how I would apply these activities in my work in counseling and in the classroom."
"It is so awesome to have really big poster activities to work with! I love how easy they are to use, adapt, and immediately put into practice."
"I wish I had these tools when I was in College!"
