Leadership Embodiment: Cultivating Presence, Confidence and Compassion
Each of us has patterns that arise when we are confronted with a challenging situation. Often our mind understands what is needed to create a more skillful interaction, yet we are not able to do what we so clearly understand.Under duress, the body always wins.
In this session with Wendy Palmer, she teaches us how our body (limbic) learns in a different way and at a different pace than our mind (neocortex). In order to be congruent, our body needs to learn in clear, simple, patterns that allow a shift from reactive survival actions to skillful, creative actions.
Running Time 45 Minutes
