We think we come across a certain way and give a certain message. We may even be dressed to match what we think communicates that way to inspire others, to give that well-intended message. We have the powerful strategies and cases to support everything we say. But our bodies have deeply-imprimed ways of communicating what we have long carried in us, silently guiding the words we choose and what we react to. Then like driverless cars, we find ourselves on the uninspiring highways of stress, pressure and the unknown.
Let me bring you on a discovery of your patterns, then the LE principles and practices: towards having your bodies and minds on board-more integrated than split, more powerful than diffused. If you have read the book, we take the learning off the pages to give you the experience of how it is to shift from personality to centre. This is a wonderful primer for Level 1 when we take on your questions that emerge; when we cultivate greater presence, confidence and compassion through embodying our most inspiring qualities.
You emerge from our 4 hours more knowledgeable about the leadership competencies that afford presence, enriched with a compassionate self-seeing of your signature pattern and the centering practice at the heart of Leadership Embodiment-that is yours for life.
Workshop introduction in contemplative pedagogy, students are encouraged to become more aware of their internal world and connect their learning to their own values and sense of meaning which in turn enables them to form richer deeper, relationships with their peers, their communities and the world around them.
In this workshop Dr Kwong Chan will introduce the contemplative teaching model developed by the Griffith Medical School Communication Skills Stream (MaRIS) and explore the art of becoming a contemplative educator.
Meditation is a vast topic, and a 4-hour workshop will obviously not do justice to it. However, I feel that it’s a practical way for anyone to start practicing mindfulness and get a general understanding of it. This workshop is also for all levels of meditators and wellness professionals who want to explore the similarity and differences of both traditional mindfulness and modern science-based meditation methods.
We will also discuss the most common types of mindfulness practiced all over the world to give you a general idea on which one is most suited to your needs and lifestyle.
Besides lectures, the workshop will also include hands-on sessions.
Day 1 will mainly cover foundational aspects while Day 2 will focus on more in-depth sharing, where the speaker will share his personal mindfulness learning journey and life stories.
