"It is easy in the world to live after the world's opinions; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; but the great wo/man is s/he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude."  A quote by Emerson, slightly updated.

    IN PROGRESS 12-MONTH ONLINE PROGRAM: AGENTS OF CHANGE PROGRAM FOR WOMEN

    WHY THIS PROGRAM NOW:

    The art of movement by Ken Browar
    • The complex times we live in call us - to step up and out, to bring about changes with greater skill and greater heart, to expand our presence and purpose - for ourselves, with others, in and for the systems in which we operate.

    • Each participant brings her own unique change questions to light in the program, and transforms them into new ways of doing things in her work and life, a creative project that demands to be fulfilled or an intention that needs the support of others.

     

    FOCUS AREAS:

    • Changing Self - Growing Self-Awareness and Developing Past Inner Limits

    • Changing With Others - Interpersonal Dynamics and Creating High Value Teams

    • Changing Systems - Leveraging Systems Dynamics for Lasting Change

    • Strengthening Presence and Purpose - Developing Inner Resilience, Nurturing Head-Heart-Body, Clarifying One's Purpose and Its Expression At This Stage
