About the Event
My first meditation retreat was a week of silence in 2004. I was exhausted, burnt-out, and overwhelmed with the loudness of life that I thought was normal. I just wanted a moment to “pause” - make the loudness and busyness of my own life stop. My initial draw to the retreat was to stop, to hide, to find an escape. I had no idea that my life - and leadership - would change forever. I had no idea that the foundation of that retreat would anchor me more deeply to myself and a commitment to live a lifestyle with greater presence and authenticity - a life that I would not need to hide or escape from.
I could go on, yet since then, my work and life speak to the power of this practice more fully than I could ever describe here. All because I got quiet, got still, slowed down, and went inward. To BE different, I had to DO different. The retreat gave me space to practice do-ing different so I could start be-ing different.
I want to share this experience with you, I want to share Professional Spirituality® with you. While we will not do a week (yet!), I invite you to join me for a sacred weekend of sacred work: YOU & YOUR LEADERSHIP. We will truly do the work of embodying self-transformation for systemic-transformation®
Free of interruption, we will engage in our own container on the beautiful grounds, enjoying three healthy meals each day, the peace of nature, private learning spaces, outdoor amphitheater for talks and wellness body-movement. There will be periods for us to honor the power of Deep Silence. We will learn together, meditate together, and rest together. Of course, there will be space for you to simply BE at your own pace as well.
