Experience yourself again without the impositions, false narratives, and the mask you've been taught to wear to "fit in and get along" that keeps you stuck and limits you from being the leader you are capable of being and at your best at all times ... that's the "NEW YOU" that you'll discover after spending this intense, exciting, and profound week with Dr. Joseph Riggio and Lt. Colonel Al Ridenhour, U.S. Marines (ret.)
◼︎EXQUISITE LEADERSHIP: Rediscovering Who You Are At Your Best

The essence of the Generative Flow℠ 5-day training focuses on reintroducing you to yourself at your best in a way that transcends the limitations imposed upon you before you even knew you were being trained to wear a mask designed to serve and make others comfortable.

The simple truth at the heart of the Generative Flow℠ 5-Day Training:

"You've been brainwashed by political, social, and educational systems designed to teach and encourage you to fit in and be good, even when this means wearing a mask and burying your true self. This stifles innovation, creativity, and, personal and professional growth. Because of this, we experience imposter syndrome, discontentment, and joylessness instead of knowing ourselves and others as magnificent, gifted individuals."

When you get this you'll be powerful, creative, influential... and free.

We'll spend five days together peeling away the layers of learned behaviors, habits, and norms that keep you small and less than you are capable of being. We'll expose and reinstall the purest form of you at your best, your Success Blueprint, so you can begin living fully, joyfully, and, with absolute freedom ... then we'll make sure we layer in all the knowledge and skills you need to personally experience and practice elite leadership for yourself.

◼︎THE ART OF PERSONAL LEADERSHIP: Making High-Quality Decisions 

Your leadership ability begins with how you experience and operate your own life, driving the decisions you make and the results you produce. High-quality decisions simultaneously maximize positive consequences and minimize negative consequences. When you're making high-quality decisions your actions will become more effective and efficient creating exquisite results and outcomes.

The ability to make high-quality decisions also extends to your relationships, beginning with the relationships you choose to be in and those you choose not to be in as well.

One of the most rewarding things of operating in this way is that you'll gain back wasted time you may not even realize you've lost ...

◼︎ LEADING OTHERS EXQUISITELY: PCI - Power | Creativity | Influence 

At the five-day, intensive Generative Flow℠ training at the Fives Beach Resort in Playa del Carmen, Cancun, Mexico we'll share what Joseph calls the Hunter's Gift, our primal ability to use our senses to pick up the signals in the system that makes the attainment of exquisite outcomes commonplace for you, on your own and with others.

The core of the Hunter's Gift is the triad of "Power | Creativity | Influence" that makes it possible for you to manifest yourself fully in achieving your outcomes, and to reach beyond what limits you as an individual need to lead others in realizing outcomes that exceed any individual achievement.

POWER - The ability to decide, focus and act intentionally, and make things happen without hesitation or procrastination

CREATIVITY - The ability to adjust and adapt in real-time to take relevant action to create the results you intend and realize meaningful outcomes.

INFLUENCE - The ability to engage, enroll, and empower others and produces results and outcomes that exceed what you can do alone.


Generative Flow℠ is the culmination of years of Dr. Joseph Riggio's research and refinement in working with some of the most exquisite performers in the world revealing and condensing the keys of what they do that allows them to create world-class results in virtually every field of endeavor including business, athletics, entertainment, the arts, and in their personal lives and relationships too.

Transcending the limits of traditional learning models that are built around abstract ideas and not direct experience makes the Generative Flow℠ training so efficient and effective. You'll get the benefits of the training by engaging in direct experiential sensory-based learning using the SomaSemantics℠ training model that Dr. Joseph Riggio has been using and perfecting for more than three decades.

You'll get what we're offering first in your body, embodying the principles of exquisite leadership performance, and then in your mind, making the connections to how to be at your best in your own life and lead others in creating world-class results and outcomes effortlessly.

Joseph will be presenting this training with Al Ridenhour, Lt. Col. U.S. Marines (ret.) based on using natural movement patterns to reveal the limits of your patterns of awareness and your known and unknown blind spots to exquisite performance. Using movement as a metaphor for leadership action you'll be working with two master trainers who will guide you step-by-step to experiencing new levels of personal and professional leadership.

About Sensory Flow℠
Sensory Flow℠ Training is the primary training modality of Warrior Flow℠ the self-defense/combat martial art developed by Lt. Col. Al Ridenhour, U.S. Marines Ret. We'll use this modality as a metaphor for leadership to enhance and tune your sensory acuity, especially in regard to noticing what others are responding to and shaping those responses in your interactions. Through the physical metaphor of movement we'll also explore how we experience time and build adumbrative awareness that lead to elite performance and create extraordinary results and outcomes on your own and with others. 
The Metaphor Movement


Using the powerful metaphor of movement Joseph and Al will help you experience leading others in a powerfully subtle way that builds trust and confidence.

You'll want to come with an open mind and heart, ready to engage fully with your body if you want to get everything possible from the Generative Flow℠ five-day intensive training with Joseph Riggio and Al Ridenhour. They'll be using the unique martial art of Warrior Flow and the special training technique it's built on, Sensory Flow, to heighten your sensory awareness, build sensorial sensitivity and acuity, release your natural intuitions, train your perceptual response system, and develop your adumbrative skill.

While the Sensory Flow and Dance of the Elements are primarily based on physical movement, the effect of this newfound physical awareness often generalizes to verbal as well as non-verbal interactions with others due to the more open perceptual awareness and sensitivity to the signals in the system. With this, you’ll hold a greater awareness of the distinctions between people and the uniqueness of their perceptual experience, values, and decision-making, specifically using how they experience and express themselves physically in body-based ways to make these distinctions explicit.

These skills have been applied with thousands of participants in multiple training modalities, e.g.: martial arts, verbal skills training, non-verbal skills training, intuition training, as well as leadership, sales, persuasion, influence, and personal performance training. The prosed premise is that your resultant ability to adumbrate at a higher level will directly increase the quality of your decisions in response to the signals in the system, leading to refined action that more effectively and efficiently drives your intended outcomes. Using this knowledge to create outcomes with, through, and between others you’ll become more facile and precise regarding directing the system to act intentionally and reflectively.

The Gift and the Key Skill - ADUMBRATION: The act of providing vague advance indications; representing beforehand. synonyms: foreshadowing, prefiguration. type of: anticipation, prediction, prevision.

Adumbration is profoundly magical, and the first time you experience it in the context of the training you'll know something extraordinary has happened and that you'll never be able to go back to how things seemed to be before you could access this way of perceiving the world on demand.

You'll have immediate insight into what's unfolding before others can even imagine what's possible, giving you an edge that's irreplaceable. This edge is part of what we'll be teaching called "time-sliding," the ability to move the way you experience time and your place in it, giving you access to positioning yourself effectively in the past, the present, or the future at will. This ability will greatly expand your scope of perception and the amount of information available to in making high-quality decisions.

Most significantly, gaining adumbrative experience and skill will allow you to operate in the future ahead of the space in time that others are operating in a significant way. You'll literally experience what it's like to decide and act in the future, while others are racing to catch up. When you're operating from the future in this way you can position yourself in relation to events that haven't happened yet to leverage and benefit from the possibilities you've organized acting ahead of time. This must be experienced to be fully understood, and you can be assured that you will.

It's All Going To Happen Here ...
The Fives Beach Resort & Hotel
This is where will all happen, at the elusive, all-inclusive Fives Beach Resort and Hotel in beautiful Carmen del Playa,  Cancun, Mexico.

Here's what the Travelers Worldwide website has to say Carmen del Playa:

Playa del Carmen is a gorgeous resort on the Riviera Maya, a stretch of the Yucatán Peninsula famous for its beaches. Visitors to the town can enjoy pristine beaches with sandy shores and turquoise waters.

Visitors love Playa del Carmen because it is a lot quieter than party-heavy Cancún but still offers a great beach vacation atmosphere with plenty of resort amenities. Plus, Cancún, Tulum, and other great party destinations are just a short ride away.

The government has an interest in making sure that the security situation is stable, as tourism in the Riviera Maya is an important government source of government income.

They also say, that although there are the same petty crimes, like pickpocketing you'll find in any tourist destination in the world, "... it is still one of the safest places to visit in Mexico and safe for tourists in 2023."

The resort itself is both extremely safe, beautiful, and totally focused on creating exquisite guest experiences. You'll have access to multiple pools, and swimming on one of the prettiest beach on the Mexican Caribbean.

You'll have all-inclusive access to multiple restaurants serving multiple cuisines, including Mexican, Classic Italian, Thai and Sushi, French Bistro, and multiple bars including the swim-up bar in the main pool ... at no cost to you, just stroll or swim up to the bar of your choice, or make a reservation at one of the many restaurant experiences and you're good to go!

There are some extras too that you can choose at your leisure that may require an additional expense like the fully equipped spa, the multiple beach sport options, or the off-resort curated experiences the concierge will be happy to arrange with you.

This isn't going be just any event, this will be an event you'll treasure in every way for years to come!

Our time together will be very special and memorable beyond what you'll get from learning from and working with Joseph and Al, your time enjoying the resort and all it has to offer, and the extraordinary experiences, connections, and friendships you'll leave this week with and taking home with you.

Our friends at Vacation Jams have also arranged a private invitation to you for the opening of the "Way Down Here" music festival on the night of Saturday, 7 Oct 2023 ... you can find out all about it here: https://www.vacationjams.com/wdh23
