Weekend of October 19–21 The Art of Leadership:


Communication, Creativity and Vision Ronald Alexander


In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities While in the expert’s mind there are few.


—Suzuki This workshop is for individuals who are inter-


ested in exploring an intensive experiential process to become more effective as mindful leaders both in personal and professional life settings. Designed for entrepreneurs, executives, managers, and others committed to improving their communication and leadership skills, it is especially intended for those open to doing deep personal work to transform the self. The major areas of focus will be resolving conflict, developing trust with those who feel threatened, addressing blind spots in self-esteem, healing blocks in creativity, and building support for transforming vision into reality.


The workshop includes Gestalt open-seat work, sharing feedback on leadership and communica- tion styles, improving coaching skills, develop- ing the unconscious to creatively solve prob- lems, mindfulness meditation practice, and role- playing exercises for real-life work situations. We will also explore the functions of building and shaping mindstrength, a power tool for change that enables you to enter and lead from the state of Big Mind, Wise Mind, and Open Mind. Enrollment is limited to thirty-five par- ticipants.

Civilized to Death Christopher Ryan


Comedian Louis CK said, “Everything’s amazing, but nobody’s happy.” In this workshop, we’ll explore why this is so by looking at points of con- flict between the creature we evolved to be and the “civilized” life we’re expected to live in the modern world. These conflicts create psychologi- cal, emotional, and physical trauma from which we all suffer to some extent every day of our lives.
