It is our hope that the TLI program will not take much time away from participants’ busy personal and professional life. Participants will have to be at 19 weekly sessions, which last three hours each. In addition to that, the only other mandatory activity is the one-day retreat, which takes place on a Saturday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. There is no homework to take home; but each week throughout the program, participants are assigned light reading prior to each session. An average reading handout is 3 to 5 pages. This is the bulk of the time spent away from home or work for every cohort.
