Radical Responsibility™ & Awakened Leadership: Community Engagement Practices for Creating Enlightened Society with Acharya Fleet Maull
April 25 / 7:00 PM - April 27 / 5:30 PM
Radical Responsibility is the title of a forthcoming book by senior meditation teacher Fleet Maull. It is an approach to realizing personal freedom and creating authentic relationships. It is based on the choice to take 100% responsibility or ownership not only for what we create in life but also for whatever just occurs.
In this provocative weekend program, Fleet will draw clear distinctions between genuine responsibility and the shame-based blaming that dominates our culture. He will challenge the audience to look at the ways we give our power and freedom away and compromise our authenticity in everyday life.
The training will include mindfulness meditation instruction, experiential exercises, dyad work, and small group discussions. Participants will be introduced to an integrated set of transformative communication, leadership, and community building skills.
This weekend is ideally suited, but not limited to for community leaders and activists, teachers, social service professionals, business and nonprofit leaders, consultants and organizational change agents.
