Description

Resilience and Leadership: Tools for Navigating These Challenging Times

A workshop for anyone who wants to respond to stress with greater ease

This workshop will create a supportive environment to better understand your own response to stress and how you can use this understanding to grow your leadership capacity. You’ll have an opportunity to exhale, have fun learning new practices, and leave with practical tools you can put to use immediately. All are welcome and no experience is necessary.

You’ll experience somatic practices with a foundation in neuroscience and martial arts, a variety of exercises that directly affect your nervous system and the deeper layers of stress and tension in your body. They are all gentle yet powerful ways of restoring our capacity to generate wellbeing in ourselves and the world.

In addition to the opportunity to connect with other leaders, we’ll work with our embodied approaches that will:

  • Help you understand how you respond to conflict and stress
  • Transform your stress load with simple embodied practices
  • Practice leading with greater ease
  • Receive support to not only bounce back from challenges, but to grow and transform


Doors at 6pm, Workshop 6:30pm-8:30pm

$10-25 (No one turned away for lack of funds) Two solidarity economy tickets at no cost available – contact elizabeth@climatecompassion.org

Light and healthy snacks will be available
