10-Day Energy Mastery Program

The Next Practice Institute of Mobius Executive Leadership

Warren Conference Center, Ashland, MA

Many people confuse masculine and feminine polarities with being male or female. People often lack an understanding of how to be with, and engage the energetics of these potent polarities, both within themselves and in relationships. In this deeply experiential retreat, we will be practicing and learning skills that you can immediately use in your daily lives and work.

We’ll start with Lynda’s unique method of teaching “energetic basics”: skills that help you be present with yourself and others and “hold your own space.” You’ll then be diving into the nuance of feminine and masculine energy, first for yourself internally; and then extending those skills to the world around you, enhancing your relationships and interactions with clients, organizations, fellow practitioners, as well as partners, friends and family. You’ll gain feeling more at Home in yourself and walking more easily through your world. No matter how familiar you are with energy work, you will enlarge your skill set in this course.

This program is designed for those who have already done extensive psycho-spiritual work and are now prepared to enter a sincere and intent study of the Unmanifest and Invisible realms and subtle energetic principles of the Universe and to cultivate a mature holding of their own Divine Masculine and Feminine aspects.

The DNA of Exceptional Communication

Dialogix

UK

This is a foundation programme which provides participants with a framework to understand the DNA of human interaction – ranging from day-to-day communication, through to the behaviours that emerge when people are placed under pressure.Using ‘The Dialogix Model’© we will equip you with the skills to be able to get beneath the surface of deeply-engrained organisational behaviours. You will learn how to deconstruct the hidden dynamics of group interaction and link them to observable behaviours in the room – creating an opportunity to recognise and change stuck patterns of behaviour that are not working. Our approach, the science of which is based on 50 years of clinical research, releases the most repetitive, unhelpful behavioural patterns, creating more powerful, effective and high-performing teams and individuals. By deconstructing the invisible structures that sit behind our most volatile reactions, participants will also explore what drives human behaviour in crisis. Through exploration of the role of story and identity, you will learn how to make sense of – and change – the most disruptive patterns of behaviour that can erupt without warning.

The Exceptional Leadership Coach

Dialogix

Wiltshire, UK

Participants of this programme must have attended the Level 1 programme ‘The DNA of Exceptional Communication’ or the Kantor-Dialogix programme ‘Making Change Happen’. Many coaches describe how they feel unprepared to work with behaviour emanating from a leader’s childhood story, or they do so purely instinctively. Unless somebody is therapeutically trained, they may not have suitable models for doing work of this kind, or sense a gap that results in them feeling ill-equipped to do so. This programme will bridge that gap. It provides a model for embarking on childhood story work with a leader, including the work that practitioners must do on their own childhood stories, before engaging deeply in childhood story work with clients. It does so by taking you deep into the inner processes of working with the impact of childhood stories in an appropriate and skillful way.
