We all tell ourselves stories about ourselves constantly. Some of these stories are neutral and some are positive, but all too often they are negative stories.
If we tell sad stories about our past, we create depression. If we tell scary stories about our future, we create anxiety. Pathfinders provides a template for looking at our stories about ourselves, then focusing on our strengths to creating more positive stories (based on data and facts, not emotions), to gain personal and/or professional growth. Together with the coaching provided by Michael and Alejandro, the Pathfinders Retreat will help you find the best path for yourself. With other young professionals like yourself, we will share experiences that will build each participant to where he wants to be.
These days, many men feel as if they don’t have a clear vision of their own future. They have a sense that they should be on some specific path. However, they don’t know where that path might lead them, and they feel as if they are on the path all by themselves. Let Michael DeVoll and the Pathfinders Retreat help you see a more positive story forward for yourself by honing your strengths in a supportive, caring group setting.
Experiences
The Pathfinders Retreat is specifically designed for young professional men to feel more connected so they can discover where their path forward in life might take them. This program will include activities that explore individual values clarification, personal strengths exploration, interpersonal connection, and personal goal setting. All of this will be done through activities such as…
Challenging Ropes Course
Interactive Group Experiences
Personal Reflection
Group Discussion
Camp Allen

The Pathfinders Retreat will be held at Camp Allen, about an hour northwest of Houston, on the edge of the Sam Houston National Forest, nestled between rolling hills with two lakes on the property.

There is a certain natural comfort that is created when we are immersed in nature. The waters in the lakes can not only cool you, but also naturally calm and soothe your mind. The fresh air can reinvigorate your soul, the natural sounds clear your thoughts. Many young professionals are stuck in a rut, wheels spinning in place as they try to move forward. Sometimes a change in scenery is all you need to get things moving again. Sometimes a deeper connection with nature with guidance can help. Michael DeVoll will facilitate all the activities as you work with like-minded individuals to discover your path.
