Program Description

Society would clearly benefit from more compassionate leaders. We are all invited to inspire global change while cultivating inner awareness. Attunement, deep listening, and relational intelligence are among our most treasured and called-for qualities in daily life.

Join Deborah Eden Tull for a 5-day program that will activate your power as a leader for life and work—both personally and professionally. Practice leading with presence and authenticity in order to catalyze long-lasting change in the world and yourself. By cultivating a commitment to personal well-being and accountability, you will create a fertile foundation for bold and effective leadership.

During this inspiring workshop, you will explore:

  • How to wholeheartedly embody the spirit of a mindful leader
  • The necessity of cultivating your own self-care first, before leading others
  • Practices to help embolden your leadership skills with compassion as your guide
  • A deeper understanding of transparency and access to your true voice.

Come ready to immerse yourself in regenerative leadership through meditation and mindfulness, deep listening, time in nature, reflective writing, storytelling, and embodied learning.

You will learn the nine principles for relational mindfulness, which include: Intention, The Sacred Pause, Deep Listening, Mindful Inquiry & Clear Seeing, Transparency, Not Taking Personally, Taking Responsibility, Turning Towards Rather Than Away, and Compassionate Action. These teachings help us to bring deeper presence and compassion to all of our relationships—including the one we maintain with ourselves.
