Please note: This Intensive has SOLD OUT. Please check out our other Intensives here.


In this session we will look at a new interpretation of the body, and how this interpretation opens possibilities for leaders to produce new outcomes at work in ways that are aligned with their values.  We’ll review the recent neuroscience that shows us that the divisions created between mind and body are false, and keep us from living to our full potential.  Participants will come away with practices that build capacity to take new actions under pressure, and to generate embodied mindfulness in their lives and on their teams. 


Key Content:

  • Introduction to the methodology of Embodied Leadership
  • Review of the recent science around the effectiveness of embodiment practices.
  • Using embodiment practices to produce new outcomes at work that are aligned with your values  

Expected Outcomes:

  • Learn pragmatic embodiment practices to support new actions and conversations in your workplace

  • Delve into the possibilities for change and growth in your leadership and within your organization

  • Articulate the positive impact of bringing Embodied Leadership and mindfulness practices into companies and teams
