Mindfulness is one of the fundamentals of Presence & Leadership. Wendy Palmer is an internationally recognized mindfulness teacher and all our trainers have practiced meditation for years. We include meditation in the intensive seminars and retreats. Mindfulness helps us become aware of sensation in the body and is an excellent foundation for embodiment work.
The Presence & Leadership Institute focuses deliberately on work life and leadership. We fully take into account the specifics of work in organizations where people are faced with issues such as power, pressure, judgments, time constraints, etc. As a result, we provide tools that allow individuals to center in a very short time (e.g. 3 seconds) and you will practice changing your state under mild stress and in a large variety of potentially difficult situations (receiving feedback, expressing your point of view, facing opposition,…). 90% of the exercises are done with a partner.
In addition, the Institute gives a very large place to the body and our techniques go beyond body scan and observation of sensations. We use the body as a path toward self-discovery, self-regulation, self-unification; it is both a developmental path and a tool to influence our environment.
Mindfulness practitioners and trainers regularly tell us that the Presence & Leadership principles and techniques gave them unique insights and also helped them to live their aspirations more fully in their daily life.
You don’t, however, need any prior knowledge of mindfulness to undertake the Leadership Embodiment training cycle.
