Seven Practices of a Mindful Leader: Mindfulness, Sensory Awareness and Zen Practice

Apr 07 - 12, 2019 Begins in 5 months
with Lee Lesser & Marc Lesser

In our world of busy-ness — of more, faster, better — this retreat offers time to stop, reflect, and renew. It is a time to step fully into the richness of our lives. Together we will follow a gentle schedule of sensory awareness practice and sitting meditation interspersed with talks, Zen stories, and journal writing, as well as small group and large group dialogue as we uncover how these stories and dialogues may be utilized to transform our way of being in the world as leaders.
