Advanced Topic Modules
Gazing practices: How can we expand the container of our awareness and open the door to our innate consciousness spontaneously? When we gaze into nature, the radiance of the world becomes apparent and the radiance inside ourselves unfolds. This expands our view of the world, helps us metabolize our experience and helps us integrate our life/work experience with the essence of who we are in a deeper way.
Working with the elements: We will focus on practices that boost the vibrance of our life force energy, thus helping us to sustain optimal physical and psychological health. This heightens our presence, effectiveness, and impact as leaders, and supports our capacity to attain that which we desire for ourselves and others.
Archetyping/dreaming: We continue the work we began in Wisdom in Leadership I but take this work further. The archetypes that we connect with during waking and sleeping hours expand our world view and bring forth qualities in ourselves that help us to engage more creatively with what matters most to us. This encourages synchronicity and community resulting in a more enjoyable and–dare we say–
Why This Work Matters
Consciousness expands our capacity to perceive—and navigate—the subtle, often unseen aspects of our situations that lead to greater clarity and effectiveness. Adult development theory, for instance, suggests that our tendency as leaders to “skill ourselves up” in the face of challenges is no longer enough. Instead, we must be willing to move beyond our default solutions and toward our growth edge. For many of us, this includes unlocking our consciousness.
We also know from complexity theory that our work as leaders goes beyond the obvious, beyond cause and effect. As we evolve, we must also experiment with what we’re learning and how we turn inside to access our inner knowing. To do that, we need ways to explore our subtle bodies and see what’s present—inside ourselves as well as in evolving external systems. In a world where complexity reigns, we must cultivate a capacity to see beyond the obvious and adapt to rapid change, all the while maintaining our equanimity. We can then meet every facet of our lives from a creative state of mind rather than a stressed, limited mindset. We are then able to show others by example and inspire them to do the same, enabling our whole, integrated system to evolve.
The Advanced Topics series is a three-week program for those who have completed Wisdom in Leadership I. Underpinned in phenomenology, adult development, meditative concepts and practices, and wisdom tradition, our program aims to support the growth and development of leaders, coaches, and HR practitioners who are ready to embrace a more holistic approach to leadership.
The group will meet for three sessions to learn, connect, and explore in community. At each meeting, we’ll use everything from poetry, parables, meditations, and story to tap into our consciousness, cultivating deeper awareness of ourselves, others, and the energetic field. In between sessions, you’ll have optional reading to support your practice. Throughout the program, we’ll explore our being and doing, our inner and outer—all in service of being our authentic selves more and more.

We will meet weekly on Mondays for three consecutive weeks.
