Power of leadership with the ability to inspire as a businessman lifting up a huge boulder removing a large obstacle and leading by example as a business concept of success and determination.

Life is ebb and flow, and we are currently in the midst of deep transition. Not only is the world shifting around us, but many of us are also experiencing deep personal change. When experiencing personal or global change we may feel a loss of power, or in some instance we may give power away (consciously or unconsciously). Approaching power through the eye and heart of compassion can aide us in navigating life’s sometimes tumultuous waters.

In this experiential workshop participants will:

  • Examine and define power and what it means to reclaim our power
  • Look at  ways we lose and/or give away our personal power
  • Discuss the difference between passive and engaged compassion
  • Practice and discuss “compassion tools” to examine, investigate, and create understanding around personal and global change.

We will also meditate and do a yoga practice for reclaiming our personal power

Participants are encouraged to bring a journal, any questions, an open mind and receptive heart. Participants are also encouraged to dress comfortably as we will also be doing yoga sequences as part of the class.

Open to all. No yoga experience is necessary.

$30 in advance/$35 at the door ($25 for members)
