In this afternoon workshop, you learn practices that develop presence, which lives at the heart of skillful living and leadership. Together we will engage such as questions as:
- How do we bring presence, awareness, embodiment, compassion, and authenticity into our service and action in the world?
- What regular practices help us to develop such qualities?
- What are the challenges to manifesting these qualities in the midst of action?
Through silent practice, short talks, conversations, and interactive exercises, you will learn about (1) developing and maintaining regular mindfulness practices to cultivate presence and care; (2) bringing these capacities into action and leadership; and (3) focusing concretely on a developing presence and care in the midst of speech and communication as a foundational capacity for leadership.
This workshop is open to all, with or without previous mindfulness experience, who are interested in learning mindfulness and how to incorporate it in everyday action in work and life.
