Description

This event page is a for the 4-session series of events entitled "Life Sabbatical at Home." If you're looking to register for the free preview of this series taking place on January 18, 2018, please follow this link!

Are you sensing a disconnect between how you spend your time and what's important to you? Have you been considering taking some time off or setting out on a new path? Are you feeling burnt out? Do you want to reconnect to joy? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, then join Alison Gold for her ground-breaking "Life Sabbatical at Home" workshop series. This program is a facilitated, joyful, communal experience designed to embrace the thoughtful and the fun. You’ll have the opportunity to try out some practical techniques to ask big questions, explore the meaningful answers, and begin aligning who you are with what you do. And we’ll sprinkle food and dancing, creativity, and meditation into the mix too!


ABOUT

What’s a life sabbatical? It’s a period of dedicated time when an individual can engage in an intentional practice of reflecting on key questions they have about their life and how they want to use the answers they discover to align who they are with what they do.

Often, a sabbatical is thought of as a period “off” from our regular routines filled with travel and learning. But, what if we could facilitate an experience, create a community, and support one another to build our individual practices of inquiry, reflection, sharing, joy, and change right here at home?

ABOUT THE FACILITATOR

Alison Gold is the Founder of Optimistic Anthropology. She is passionate about sharing her unique combination of skills and experiences as an anthropologist, cross-sector change-maker, culture-shaper, strategist, life sabbatical-er, experience designer and facilitator with individuals, organizations, and cross-sector collaborations seeking to create a more positive world.

But, who Alison is and what she does weren’t always so aligned. As a high-achieving, type-A, pragmatic Midwesterner, she spent fifteen years working her butt off in nonprofits, government, philanthropy, and cross-sector collaborations. When she decided it was time to leave her last “job” she drew upon her experiences designing leadership development programs for executives and conducting anthropological research, as well as the support of a coach to develop her “life sabbatical.” She decided to focus on how she wanted to have positive impact in the world and what she wanted the rhythm of her life to be. During the seven-month period that followed, Alison visited four continents, eleven countries, and ten US states with the goal of learning something new every day and exploring how she wanted to have positive impact in the world. From her life sabbatical, the answers to these and many other questions emerged.

During and after returning from her “life sabbatical,” Alison found that people she had met and worked with throughout her life were reaching out wanting to understand how she had approached her experience and what she had learned. From these discussions, she started writing about the concept of a “life sabbatical,” listening to other sabbaticalers’ stories, exploring how it could be possible for more people to access the benefits of the process, and developing this workshop.
