Embodying Leadership Under Pressure ~ Level 1 ~ October 21-22

More then ever before, we need wise, skillful leadership, in every domain of life: our work, our families, our communities. We need you.

Whether you’re a professional, a parent, an active member of society — are you the leader that you know you are capable of being? What happens when you’re under pressure?

At some point, we all lose our capacity to respond skillfully — with our family, partners, colleagues, neighbors and strangers:

  • We say things we regret
  • We lose sight of the big picture
  • We push others too hard
  • We avoid conflict
  • We go quiet, let others pull us along
  • We ignore our core values

Each of us has deeply embedded patterns — especially in our interactions with others. We get stressed. Something triggers us. And we react, falling into the same old pattern. How does that happen? If we could change ourselves with our minds alone, we would!

Is it possible to shift our deepest reactions, without years of therapy? Yes. Through the body.

This experiential workshop offers you practices and tools to become aware of your unconscious patterns under pressure — and truly shift them.

You will learn how to:

  • Handle stressful situations with greater ease and skill
  • Be less reactive and more creative
  • Get clear about your truth and express it cleanly
  • Become aware of what your body is communicating under pressure
  • Listen more fully to others
  • Expand your natural presence, resilience, empowerment, wisdom and compassion
  • Embody leadership

This is designed for anyone who experiences pressure in some aspect of their life.

Leadership Embodiment (LE) draws on the traditions of mindfulness and Aikido, a revolutionary non-aggressive martial art that offers simple yet deep techniques that help you recognize how your mind and body habitually react to pressure. It was created by Wendy Palmer, who holds a sixth degree blackbelt and has practiced mindfulness for 45 years. She is author of two books, The Intuitive Body and The Practice of Freedom.

The cost of this workshop is:
$295 if you register by September 30
$345 if you register after September 30
