Executive Champions’ Workshop

Society for Organizational Learning

Stowe, Vermont

The Executive Champions’ Workshop (ECW) has thrived over the years because of a growing desire amongst senior leaders from diverse organizations around the world to engage in deeper dialogue with peers who share their aspirations and face similar challenges. With its distinguished participants, this program has consistently created a distinctive space for deep reflection and conversation around questions that matter. The 2016 theme was “Exploring the Connection between Leading Self and Leading Others for Systems Change and Innovation.” The ECW is not a training session. Nor is it a typical conference. It is both personal and substantive in the way that only deep conversation among peers can be. Offered in collaboration with the Presencing Institute, the Executive Champions’ Workshop (ECW) is a special setting for nurturing new thinking and relationships among executive leaders in today’s rapidly changing economic and social landscape. Offered by invitation for executives who are champions of change, the ECW is a unique opportunity to reflect, refocus, and recharge. Facilitated by Peter Senge and Otto Scharmer.

The DNA of Exceptional Communication


Portland Place, London

This programme 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 Shakti Fellowship

Conscious Leadership Academy

Unlocking the Source for True Leadership

Something is out of sync with the example of leadership today.

Feminine energy in leadership is largely absent from our professional lives; and introducing it could help companies become more balanced and integrated.

When women lead differently, something BIG happens.

If you are concerned that too many leaders, men and women alike, are buying into a notion of leadership that exclusively emphasizes traditionally ‘masculine’ qualities, win-at-all-costs and yearn for leadership that is balanced; this course is for you.

Like no other, this fellowship program reveals an archetype that is generative, cooperative, creative, inclusive, and empathic. While traditionally regarded as feminine qualities, we all have them! In the Indian yogic tradition, they are symbolic of Shakti, the energy source that powers all life.

Contemplative Practice in Context: Culture, History, and Science

Mind & Life Institute

Myōshin-ji Temple • Kyoto, Japan

As the “cultural heart of Japan,” Kyoto is home to longstanding traditions of contemplative practice, philosophy, and scientific research. Inspired by this setting, and its location at the Zen temple complex Myōshin-ji, the theme for this first Mind & Life International Research Institute is Contemplative Practice in Context: Culture, History, and Science. This five-day immersive program brings together leading scholars in the sciences and humanities, contemplatives, and artists to examine contemplative epistemologies within a variety of contexts. Plenary faculty presentations will consider how contextual forces that include culture, environment, history, and worldviews effect contemplative practices as well as research on meditation. Neuroscientists and psychologists will describe recent research on the science of meditation, and humanists and social scientists will explore secular and cultural adaptations of meditation, including the history of mindfulness, theories of Buddhist meditation, and the emergence of contemplative studies as an academic field. Presentations will give special attention to the contemplative and intellectual culture of Japan over the centuries, including presentations on the history of Zen Buddhism, the Kyoto School of philosophy, and Japanese contemplative arts. Daily guided meditation sessions and small group breakouts led by faculty will complement the interdisciplinary dialogue of the program.

Returning to Nature: A Retreat on the Four Elements

Vallecitos Mountain Retreat Center

The Buddha frequently recommended practice out of doors, encouraging us to enter the world where tranquillity and silence are so readily available. As our society becomes increasingly speedy and noisy, separating us further from our true nature, this recommendation could not be more appropriate. Drawing on the rich resources of Vallecitos’ stunning natural surroundings, we will participate in this age-old tradition of turning towards nature as a support for spiritual practice.

The focus of our practice together will be the on Four Elements – earth, water, fire and wind. While we are all familiar with these qualities in the external world, we can miss the play of them within our own body and mind and so miss the profound teaching that is pointing to a place of freedom and letting go.

Throughout the retreat meditation guidance and Dharma teaching will be offered on this theme as well as times of silence and opportunity for discussion. Through our practice and contemplation and the support of the natural world, we will create an opportunity for deeper insight to arise into the true nature of what we take to be “me” and “mine”. There will be guided sitting, walking and standing meditations as well as unguided ones and optional daily qi gong.

Insight meditation practice will be supported by daily vipassana and lovingkindness meditation instructions, including walking meditation outdoors in a spectacular natural setting.

In addition to individual practice discussions with the teachers, there will be an evening talk on Buddhist practice. To cultivate the meditation process, complete silence is maintained at all times throughout the retreat except during teacher interviews and group discussions

IFS Therapy: Embodying the Healing Wisdom

The Center for Self Leadership

Are you ready to create emotional, mental, and spiritual change? Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy provides a groundbreaking model for transformation, taking an effective and compassionate approach to the parts of you that are stuck in reactive patterns and holding you back from living your best life.

Developed by Richard Schwartz, PhD, IFS draws on systems thinking with the view that the mind is made up of relatively discrete subpersonalities, each with its own viewpoint and qualities. Importantly, IFS also sees people as being whole underneath this collection of parts, the true Self.

Dr. Schwartz has been using IFS in retreat settings for more than 30 years. In this 5-day workshop immersion, you will participate in a variety of inner-focused experiential exercises in both large and small groups.

You will learn:

  • How to use IFS for identifying and engaging with the various parts of yourself
  • How and why these parts swing into action in ways that prevent you from experiencing the happiness and fulfillment you seek
  • To lead your life from the Self, an inner essence of calm, clarity, curiosity, courage, and connectedness.

Discover the new possibilities available to you as you free up energy trapped in parts of yourself with other agendas.

Enjoy spending time in the space of your wise inner self, independent of all the parts, who has been there all along, waiting to support you in becoming all you know you can be, as you experience newfound coherence in the pursuit of your life dreams.

August 29th - August 30th, 2018

Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS): 2-Day Intensive Workshop

The Center for Self Leadership


As a young therapist, I often struggled to get results. I avoided my client’s internal emotions and instead tried to control the difficult symptoms I was seeing – which led to heated arguments and frustration rather than progress.

When I started listening closely to my clients, I finally discovered the answer to healing and transformation …

As clients would talk about their different parts (and how the parts felt pain and emotions), I realized that was the key – we have to free each part from the trauma, abuse, attachment injuries and suffering that they feel.

Since I began developing Internal Family Systems (IFS) 30 years ago, it has been scientifically tested to be effective at helping a wide variety of mental health conditions – such as trauma, addiction, anxiety and depression – which is why it is one of the fastest growing approaches in therapy.

Hailed by Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, IFS will transform your clients’ lives as they learn to heal themselves. No more therapist directives or insights, rather IFS will provide a connection with your client that creates lasting healing.

Please join me for this rare 2-day training – I want to give you the skills you need to use IFS, so you can improve what you’re doing in the therapy room – and see transformation in your clients’ lives.

Deep Healing of Exiles with Richard Schwartz, PhD

Barrett Values Centre


In this ground-breaking workshop you will discover your personal pathway to well-being and flourishing. We will explore the source code of human motivations, and how your ego-soul dynamics condition your mental and physical well-being. We will describe the soul’s journey into 3-D awareness, where the will to survive comes from, and why the soul creates the ego. You don’t have an inner core, a higher self or a soul. You are the inner core; you are the higher self; you are the soul.

5th Annual Mindful Leadership Summit

Mindful Leader

Grand Hyatt, 100 H St. NW, Washington D.C., 20001

What we hope for you:

Discovery – How do you keep up with the latest research? Techniques? Innovation? You will be inspired by work being done in your backyard and across the globe. You’ll hear updates from the leaders in the field and untold stories about ordinary people having an extraordinary impact. You’ll encounter new ways to approach situations that you’ve been stuck in and tools that help implement Mindfulness into your workplace easier. You’ll learn from the best of the best and engage with peers that are in the trenches facing the same issues you face daily.

Growth  – How do you have a greater impact? Work with competing priorities? Not enough time? Not enough money? You’ve got to get creative and hone your craft. You will discover new ways to approach old problems, learn to deliver more effective results with slight modifications to your technique and how to have greater success while avoiding burn out. You will leave with a deeper sense of self, knowing how to apply Mindfulness to your profession with more skills and how to bring Mindfulness into your workplace with greater effectiveness.

Connect –  How do you ensure that when you leave the Summit that you have a support system to fall back on? You’ll be part of a unique gathering of people, all of whom are interested in exploring this emerging path of leadership excellence. We know how important it’s going to be for you to connect with others at this event, so we’re creating an environment that encourages peer-to-peer learning and community-building. In addition to keynote talks, main stage presentations, workshops and mindfulness practice, there will be opportunities for making personal connections through small round tables, organic group discussions and social events. We’ll have time to share success stories, challenges, practical tools and best practices.
