Workshop Details

“In this transformative time, we are all called to be leaders, each in our own ways,” says Nina Simons, co-founder of Bioneers and author of Moonrise: The Power of Women Leading from the Heart. Instead of accessing all of our human capacities, often our social conditioning, self-limiting stories and habitual responses to stressful events pull us off balance. How might we cultivate ourselves inwardly to better center ourselves and show up effectively in times of change? How can we amplify the wisdom of our bodies, hearts, and intuition to better support our intentions? How can we bring our best selves to this pivotal moment when so much is calling for reinvention and repair?
During this experiential and regenerative retreat, we will explore full-spectrum leadership through interactive exercises, deep listening, reflective writing, time in nature, storytelling, mindfulness, and embodied learning. We will share practices for ongoing self-cultivation, and explore how to shed what’s no longer needed within ourselves, and develop ourselves toward who we yearn to become.
This workshop is for passionate, engaged people from all stages and walks of life, and people dedicated to cultivating themselves inwardly to better effect change in the world while living joyful, fulfilling, and soulful lives.
