Mindfulness & Nature: Inside & Out

Midlife deserves its own reflections,
rituals and relevance.

November 3-10, 2019

We’re tired of the old version of retirement, reverence and irrelevance. So, we’ve reclaimed “elder.” A Modern Elder is the perfect alchemy of curious and wise, with curiosity leading to expansive inquiry while wisdom distills what’s essential. But it’s only through cultivating our wisdom, building emotional intelligence, strengthening intergenerational collaboration, and finding a deeper meaning in our work and personal lives, that we become modern elders. MEA is a place and a school with its own unique curriculum and celebrations for this time of life, so we can all “grow whole, not old.”

Join us this week to connect more deeply with nature inside and out, and integrate mindfulness into your life.

The Nature of Leadership: Canyon Ranch Woodside

Restore your human nature and reclaim
your natural intelligence.

Dates TBD

Are you longing to let go of the stress, busyness and distractions of life and reconnect to a more nourishing rhythm where calm, clarity and wisdom can be cultivated? Join us as we drop in, leave the digital world and re-engage with the natural world to realign, resource and rejuvenate. To find balance in this age of artificial intelligence, we will build your emotional intelligence, using nature based mindfulness practices to give you the human nature advantage. You will calm the mind, open the heart and reawaken your senses.

Join us for a potent time full of playful discovery, quiet contemplation, and personal inquiry.

Solstice Meditation Retreat at the Esalen Institute

What needs to end to make space for a new beginning? How do you resist letting go of things that need to be released?

December 20-22, 2019

Following ancient traditions on this winter solstice, we will take this poignant time to retreat, slow down, and enter stillness, silence and inner exploration. 

During this retreat, we will use meditations, ritual, time in nature, inquiry and group exercises and discussion as ways to explore this theme of transition. Participants can leave clear and courageous in taking the next steps to create an inspired life.

Join us to meet the changes in your life with acceptance and clarity.

What I have learned is that people become motivated when you guide them to the source of their own power and when you make heroes out of employees who personify what you want to see in the organization.

“Learning SIY from Lori made me feel a sense of accomplishment towards understanding myself. She was humble and modest in her presentation. Her words and actions demonstrated how she embodied what she taught to us. She is my inspiration and role model. Thank you for bringing the joy of discovering my strength and offering me the attitude of freedom to offer my kindness in the service to my children in school and beyond.”
