Shared Transformation Journeys

The Path

The Personal Transformation Journey

Vortex’s Mission Statement

Our mission is to create a shared transformational space, where game-changing leaders come together to grow into the most fulfilled and joyous versions of themselves; and create a high-impact, closely-knit community.
This is why we have created Vortex, the global personal transformation collective for extraordinary people.
We use cutting-edge personal transformation tools and unite game-changing leaders, whilst adventuring in phenomenal locations around the world.
Every retreat is highly personalised and curated, which allows leaders to rejuvenate, reconnect, and realign.
We understand that every attendee is within his/her own right, a ‘Vortex’. Someone who creates energy - and is a visionary, thought-leader, and multi level game-changer in his/her own field.
Allow us to serve you, so you can serve the planet.

Program

In collaboration with leading global transformation experts, we’ve created a fully-immersive experience designed to uplift participants and create a powerful community.

The onset of the Vortex experience begins with “Vortex Ignite” - 5-day personal transformation retreats held at exotic and inspiring locations around the world.

“Vortex Ignite” flows directly into “Vortex 360”, a bespoke, year-long mastermind program, designed to support the community wherever they may be.

360 day mastermind

The “Vortex 360” mastermind ensures that the personal growth and community building created in “Vortex Ignite” are maintained and deepened over the course of 360 days immediately following the completion of the Vortex Ignite retreats.  This highly curated, online mastermind features:
All participants take turns at having the community “ignite” their personal professional, and philanthropic interests for 1-2 weeks.
Monthly interactive seminars with powerful educational content, recorded for those who can’t attend.
5-6 person “accountability pods”, to ensure that all participants have strong support networks from within the group.
Curation of meetups and adventures for those who choose to attend.

who we are

Vortex has been 33 years in the making.  The initial concept was conceived in 1988, when Chris Traub participated in a 3 month outdoor leadership wilderness training expedition in Alaska with 15 participants. It occured to Chris that most of the key learnings and growth derived from the experience were connected to each team member’s personal mindset, relationships, and ability to fully release and play.
