Dashama Sports Team Proposal The format of this show follows the lives of 17 people who come together to live in the Zen Mansion for 30 days with Dashama and a team of experts, with the intention of experiencing a transformational experience.

This show is filmed in a format that follows the entire 30 day journey of each individual (or couple), focusing on 2 specific stories from beginning to completion within each single episode. Through private interviews and candid camera placements, audio recordings (hidden) and group interactions - the audience will witness their struggles, their challenges, emotional, physical and mental breakthroughs through to the end.

The rules of the house:
No negativity in the space.
No cell phones or email/ internet connectivity with outside world (except 1 time per week)
Every one must follow the detox diet
Daily practice of yoga: 4 hours
Daily workshops: 3 hours

1 weekly excursion (swim with dolphins, paddle boarding in the ocean or bay, etc.) designed to help people breakthrough fears and limiting beliefs about the ocean/ water.

Everyone is evaluated by Dr Brown when they arrive, as well as by Dr Vettese. They assess the participants and establish the foundation. We capture these private sessions on camera.

Everyone is evaluated by Dashama physically, to assess the benchmark from which they are beginning this journey.

Each day the classes and group workshops focus is on a different topic (known as Chakras, these are aspects of the human condition that may be blocked, weak, stuck or damaged from the past, trauma, etc). Each week to progress, beginning with the basics and progressing up to an advanced level by the end of the 30 days. Healing workshops like thai massage teach intimacy and loving relationships. Partner yoga workshops teach team building and communication. Detox yoga practice once per week in a heated room to cleanse the internal systems and organs. Meanwhile, the participants have 1 private session with each expert on the TEAM. These are all filmed.

Participants experience weight loss, healing from pain, eliminating prescription medications, mental, emotional and physical healing from past trauma. Equipped with a new bag of tools and techniques to handle life, each of them learns how to handle the challenges that arise and to approach it with ease and grace.

The completion, as we approach the end of the 30 days is filled with emotions as we film the participants and discuss the breakthroughs they have experienced through this transformational journey.

Optional - we bring back the local participants and film the 3 months ‘follow up’ to show how they have progressed and where they are now in their journey. Did they stick with it? Did they back-slide? What are their greatest challenges now? What new breakthroughs have occurred for them since the mansion? This can be edited to complete the season in the 13th episode as season finale OR as 2nd season footage...
