Workshop Details

People in leadership positions who strive to be inspiring, influential, and highly effective must be exquisitely present, fully alive, and unafraid to know anything about themselves. When you can engage the powerful feelings of others without the need to control or tame them, that’s radical aliveness. When you can learn to hold a space where conflict and challenge are welcome because they serve as doorways to fresh insights, that’s also radical aliveness.
This workshop is designed for established or emerging leaders: therapists, businesspeople, community leaders, health care workers, ministers, educators, social activists, and other professionals who want to learn the principles and apply the techniques of Core Energetics and Ann’s Radical Aliveness approach to bring more charge and creativity to their work.
Participants will work with blocks to leadership, facing conflict head-on, and opening to the unpredictable energy of life. Everyone will be encouraged to lead, take risks, be emotionally honest, shed personal agendas, and help build a dynamic group process where every member is an essential part of the whole. The aim is to become leaders who serve the greater purpose of life.
This group process is unlike group work you’ve done before, demanding courage, committed engagement with others, and a strong desire to discover and develop your leadership potential within an accelerated, intense time frame and setting.
