School of Embodied Leadership
6-Day Immersive Course and Webinar Series
Petaluma, California
Permeating all the activities in the School of Embodied Leadership is the notion that in order for a leader to be at their optimal level of performance, they need to be emotionally, spiritually, and physically fit. We believe that only through the synergistic integration of these three elements can a leader achieve their full potential. It establishes the ground that gives credibility to your declarations and it is the capital for developing trust with others. The impeccability of this unification creates a leader that is capable of decisive action, emotional maturity, and embodied vision. This course will dramatically increase your self-confidence and focus your talents into purposeful action. 
To become an Embodied Leader, it is important to have mental discipline. You need to be able to concentrate, release negative thinking, calm and settle your emotions, remain open to possibilities, think through difficult situations, and visualize positive results. This course will develop these skills of emotional intelligence and focus.
To become an Embodied Leader, it is important to be physically fit. This means possessing strength, agility, flexibility, coordination, and endurance. You do not have to possess this level of fitness to be in the course and we will teach you how to balance this area in your life. You will learn new and innovative ways to maintain a high level of fitness.
To become an Embodied Leader, it is important to have values on which you are willing to stake your life. This requires reflecting on, thinking through, publicly declaring, and embodying the values you deem most important. This course will ask you to focus on what you care about and what you are committed to achieving.
