Mindfulness and Leadership: Developing Courage, Clarity and Compassion

Mar 05 - 10, 2017 Begins in 1 month
with Anushka Fernandopulle

Being an effective leader calls on many strengths. Mindfulness develops clarity of vision, compassion leads to a deeper understanding of ourselves and others, and courage supports us in carrying out difficult tasks. All of these qualities can be strengthened through intentional practice. During this workshop, we will reflect on our development as leaders and work on qualities of the heart that can serve us in sustainable leadership. You will be shown practices from Buddhist meditation that can support focus, balance, and creativity.



We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.
