    “It is crucial as leaders that we learn how to manage our energy, and the energy of others, and that we do so with patience and generosity.

Final Note from Summit Producer  

Dear Mindful Leaders,

It’s been two years since we have hosted our annual in-person Summit and I’m thrilled to be able to see you all again! Every year we try to make the Summit better, both for new attendees and returning folks. We are continuing with our wildly popular pre-summit UnConference on Thursday. If you have not experienced an UnConference, it's a one of a kind experience and is entirely participant driven. We have two days of the Summit, filled with practice, insights, research, thought leaders, and of course, fun! You can join us Thursday night for a meet and greet, Friday night for our Welcome Reception, or explore Washington. D.C. and get a taste of the wonderful art, culture, and delights our city has to offer. You'll get a chance to connect with folks throughout the day in interactive sessions, and make new friends practicing together. On the last day you can sign up for our expert workshops and pick two workshops, one in the morning and one in the afternoon.  

There is nothing quite like meeting in person, with the energy, the connection, and the bonds we form. I hope to see you in person!
