In this intensive, experiential workshop, participants will be introduced to an integrated set of transformative communication, leadership and community building skills and practices while cultivating greater personal resilience, empathy, compassion and emotional & social intelligence.  The training will include mindfulness-awareness meditation instruction and practice, experiential exercises, coaching and small group discussions.

Participants will train in a variety of mindfulness and awareness meditation practices: presencing, emotional literacy, emotional regulation, state shifting, self-resourcing, deep listening, the basics of motivational interviewing, giving and receiving feedback - ultimately learning better ways to engage effectively with the various challenges we face in our daily lives.
