Learning Services

Through Our Ellipses, Holly Masturzo works with individuals, small groups and organizations to create meaningful learning experiences.

Holly designs educational programs, interactive workshops, conversation circles and professional or personal development retreats specific to your needs and focused on your purpose.

These offerings are developed and facilitated in collaboration with you or a leadership team whenever possible. Naming the purpose for the program or event together is the first step in providing a potent learning space for growth and transformation.

Holly believes:

  • Learning is an experience we participate in with all our senses.
  • The creative process challenges us to discover new ways of thinking and being.
  • What remains unsaid is vital material for understanding ourselves and each other.
  • The arts and intercultural experiences can help reveal the wisdom within and around us.
  • We may open ourselves to learning in every relationship and any organizational system.
