Information about Program:
Radical Responsibility, a forthcoming book by Fleet Maull, challenges us to awaken from the fog of victimization, blame, and self-imposed limitations in order to achieve genuine personal freedom and create authentic and powerful relationships in our personal and professional lives. Through Radical Responsibility we choose freedom and self-empowerment by consciously choosing to take 100% responsibility or ownership not only for what we clearly create in life but also for whatever shows up, regardless of any apparent connection to our own actions. In this provocative weekend program, Fleet Maull will draw clear distinctions between genuine responsibility and the shame-based blaming of self and others that dominates our culture, while challenging the audience to look at all the ways we give away our power and freedom and compromise our authenticity in everyday life. Radical Responsibility is grounded in the recognition of our own innate, basic goodness and worthiness. Throughout the weekend, we will engage in contemplative practices and experiential processes designed to help us connect with and develop greater confidence in our innate goodness and worthiness, giving us the resilience we need to step up to the challenge of Radical Responsibility and embrace a life of authenticity and genuine personal power. This contemplative, experiential workshop will introduce participants to a wealth of practices and skillful means for realizing their limitless potential as awake, responsible, and authentic adult human beings.
This weekend is ideally suited, but not limited for: Business, nonprofit and government leaders and innovators, consultants, trainers and coaches, business and social services professionals, teachers, tech and media professionals, community activists and change agents of all kinds.
