Brave-hearted leadership is needed and being called forth; we are at an urgent and disruptive time in human history that calls on our best selves to lead with courage, love and fierce determination.
What is warriorship? What does it mean to lead brave-hearted?
How can we best access this wisdom? And sustain it? And inspire it in others?
How do we develop brave-hearted principles as well as practicewarriorship with more grace and mastery? How can we build a community of diverse warriors who can individually and collectively contribute to transformative change?
This engaging workshop will harness the energy and wisdom in the room to co-create a safe and courageous space to explorewarriorship. You will leave with teachings, reflections, and the inspiration to lead brave-hearted.
We will start the day with bannock, fruit, tea & coffee and move into a beautifully prepared traditional lunch from Salishan Catering.
