Natural Brilliance: Leading from Within
January 23–25, 2015
To lead others, we must know ourselves, where we shine and where we get stuck. Some situations bring out the best of who we are; in others we can’t get out of our own way. During this enriching weekend, we will explore the Five Wisdoms, an ancient Buddhist system of personalities which yields enormous insight into our patterns of behavior, emotions, and relationships. Through a series of postures and creative expression, you see your personal way of perceiving the world, expressing yourself, and communicating. As we become familiar with where we struggle as well as our own unique styles of intelligence and effectiveness, we discover our innate, natural brilliance and learn how to lead from within.
This program is the first in a series of three onsite modules and can be taken alone or as part of a framework for ongoing engagement and certification from the Five Wisdoms Institute.
