About Away 2 Be

We Connect People

Conversations are the first steps to solving the world’s greatest problems. Away 2 Be creates meaningful relationships so that these conversations can begin and flourish. We accomplish this through one of three approaches: yoga, interactive workshops and international travel.

Our “personal, local, global” model encourages dynamic curiosity about one’s self, one’s community and one’s planet as pathways to creating sustainable, positive change.

About Susan Lambert

After twenty years of non-traditional teaching throughout the world—including nearly ten years in American classrooms—Away 2 Be Founder Susan Lambert formed a diverse understanding of how different people learn most effectively. The most poignant and significant aspects of her teaching experiences were the relationships they created, so she set out to develop a unique instructional method that uses the relationship itself as a keystone of learning. Away 2 Be is Susan’s vision for creating personal, local and global connections that result in real-world humanitarian benefits.

When she’s not teaching and traveling for Away 2 Be, Susan serves as a consultant and liaison for The World Leadership School out of Boulder, CO, TakingIT Global, based in Toronto and Causeway in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Susan has conducted hundreds of educational and team-building workshops, incorporating global themes and sustainable practices to improve people’s lives at home, in the office and beyond.
