Shambhala Leadership Training Part IV: The Art of Leadership and Inviting Magic (Berkeley)
with Sandra Ladley & Mery Miguez
June 29 / 9:00 AM - June 29 / 4:00 PM
A day-long leadership training in the Shambhala Buddhist tradition. This workshop will provide skills and trainings in support of the path of contemplative leadership. In the morning we will focus on taking leadership as part of one’s spiritual path.
In the morning we will focus on taking the view and practice of taking Basic Goodness and Enlightened Socity as a basis of one’s leadership. In the afternoon we will explore the art of communication and conflict resolution from a Shambhala Buddhist perspective.
How we lead our lives in households and in families, at work and at play, publicly and privately, affects the health of an entire society. Join with leaders in Shambhala to explore our mutual commitment to creating a more sane society through principles of universal leadership.
Everyone is qualified to take leadership training, and it is not neccessary to take the trainings in sequence.
The Art of Leadership will focus on taking the path of leadership as Creative Process, regarding situations as Mandala and applying the teaching of the Four Karmas.
Inviting Magic will explore the Shambhala view and practice of “Court Principle,” and the art of creating brilliant environments that communicate sanity, dignity and decorum.
