WisdomGuides.org is an independent not-for-profit group, dedicated to helping men realize their gifts and talents, so they can
serve the world and lead a life that matters. We are completely self-funded and provide our services on a pro bono basis.
WisdomGuides Cadre Adventures are a blend of one-on-one meetings and team workshops. Participants pledge to spend time in solitude, dedicated to study, reflection, and writing a journal. Aside from nominal costs for books & materials, WisdomGuides charges no fees to participants. Travel and other expenses are paid individually.
