We Cultivate Conscious
Embodied Leaders

Learn how to integrate these overlooked values
through engaging your multiple intelligences,
developing awareness, and practicing embodiment.

Multi-Dimensional Intelligences

There are many intelligences living within us, but our culture has taught us to overvalue our rational, cognitive intelligence. Here, we engage in practices that bring our other intelligences back to life, so we can know from the wisdom of our whole selves. When leaders connect with all of their faculties - body sensations, emotions, and intuitive, imaginal wisdom - intrinsic power is invoked from within, creating true presence.

Conscious Awareness

With new intelligences available to us, beyond the rational mind, leaders explore their longings, unconscious patterns, and self-limiting beliefs. Blind-spots become illuminated & insights arise, often highlighting one's incredible gifts as well as ways one’s actions are inconsistent with their vision & values.

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure."

-Marianne Williamson

Embodied Practice

If only insights were enough! We could think our way into showing up differently. But lasting change doesn’t happen from the mind, it happens from practicing a new action until it becomes second nature. Here, we don’t just learn about innovative leadership techniques, we experience and embody them together. For example, we don’t simply talk about ways we could hold meetings differently, we actually hold our meetings differently. Participants integrate new values through experiential learning & embodied practices.

A leader is a person who is passionate about a cause, inspires others, and together they craft a future that was once only imaginable.

Increased engagement through collective ownership

Employees with the highest levels of commitment perform 20% better and are 87% less likely to leave the organization.

However, 70% of change initiatives FAIL

most often due to limited engagement,

insufficient investments, & differing visions.

So how do we create sustainable transformative change?

It must be reflected at the personal, the cultural, and the structural levels of the organization. Change at any one level is ineffective.
