Retreat, Reflect, and Renew: How Do We Practice Authentic Leadership in Times of Chaos and Transition?

Retreat, Reflect, and Renew...in ItalyOctober 11–14
Subiaco, Italy
Register Here

This retreat will provide reflection and connection with a growing community of practitioners of Authentic Leadership in Action in Europe.  Our conversations will be anchored in issues emerging in Europe such as the ramifications of the Greek economic crisis, conflicts in the Middle East, migration from countries at war, and how these issues impact us and our work. We will explore practices and methods that can help us respond with deep authenticity, compassion, and resilience.

Each day we will offer mindfulness and embodiment practice, opportunities to engage in large and small group conversations, walks in nature, and individual and collective expression through music and sound, all within the beautiful expanses of a Benedictine monastary in Italy! Learn more.
