Transforming the way you live and work in the world

Where to Stay

Located two hours from Boston, Massachusetts and Providence, Rhode Island, USA, Cape Cod is known for its quaint villages, beautiful beaches, and fantastic seafood. Our Center in Wellfleet is located near the tip of Cape Cod, surrounded by woods and the nearby National Seashore. Our retreat-like setting offers a natural environment away from your daily work, allowing you to fully engage in the learning. Take advantage of dunes and beaches during breaks, or plan to spend a few extra days to enjoy golf, whale watching, art and theater.
