Earth stewards and environmental advocates are driven by their vision and passionate commitment to protect life on the planet. Vision and passion, while motivating valuable work, also have their pitfalls. Vision can bring with it a sense of enormity and a seemingly endless list of projects. Passion for one’s cause can trigger reactivity in the face of disappointment and the apparent indifference or hostility of outside forces. Both conditions lead to fatigue, stress, and conflict. This not only takes the joy out of work, it also diminishes our effectiveness and can even shorten one’s life.

Mindful Leadership Training is:
Our workshops are lively, engaging, and high impact because participants are actively involved — practicing new skills, discussing applications in their work, reflecting on principles of peace in action.
We draw on extensive research in education, somatics, and human development to provide competency-based training experiences grounded in theory and practice.
Every training, whether a one-hour workshop, an eight-week series, or a weekend retreat, is customized to meet the needs, goals, and interests of your organization.
Practices of mindful communication, management, and stress reduction are fun, relaxing, and based on cooperation. Shared learning experiences of mindful practice create a unified feeling among colleagues and other stakeholders.
Participants leave our workshops motivated and prepared to put into action new skills that make a difference in their personal lives as well as at work.
The foundation of mindful leadership is Sustainability from Within, a grounding in practices of relaxation and mindful awareness. Equally important are attitudes and skills of communication grounded in the sense of our fundamental oneness as human beings. See our full list of TOPICS HERE.
