About the workshopâ€¦
This workshop uses mindfulness of body and posture as a metaphor for cultivating resilient leadership presence. You may be a leader in your organisation, family or community, or simply wish to enhance your self-leadership â€“ this workshop will be of benefit if you wish to develop a steadier presence in the push and pull of life.
Leadership Embodiment, developed by Wendy Palmer, draws on principles from martial arts to develop capacity to be present, confident and compassionate, even when pressured or stressed. This two day â€˜Level1â€™ workshop introduces a four-part practice for becoming centred, a resourceful state in which we are better able to see a bigger picture and then choose to act with more skill and grace.
In the workshop, we will explore how we lose our composure and clarity in a variety of scenarios and we will practice recovering a more resourceful state. You can expect to gain insight into your habits and patterns when you are under pressure, and to experience an alternative way to face demanding circumstances or charged situations.
In experiencing the power of this approach, a leader from the NHS said:
â€˜I truly found a real strength and energy from learning the connection between mind and body and how to use that energy and focus to cope with everyday situations never mind the stressful ones!â€™
What to expect and what to bringâ€¦
We will be moving around and will be making gentle physical contact with each other on hands, arms and back. You should wear comfortable clothes and flat, comfortable indoor shoes or bare feet.
Our work will be mainly experiential, with brief opportunities to share learning after each activity. The workshop will begin at 7pm on Friday 18 August 2017 and end at 4pm on Sunday 20 November 2017.
Mostlyâ€¦just bring yourself and be ready to explore and have fun!
