This virtual Calm Clarity Leadership Workshop gives you the opportunity to experience our core leadership and life skills program: "Lead in Alignment and Wholeness" as a two-part workshop:
- Session 1: Thursday Nov 9 from 7pm to 9pm ET
- Session 2: Thursday Nov 16 from 7pm to 9pm ET
Alignment and wholeness means living in a state in which you feel centered and grounded, embody your values, access your inner wisdom and compassion, and harness your talents, skills, and energies to become the fullest expression of yourself. Being aligned and whole is a superpower that enhances your capacity to rise to challenges, nurture meaningful relationships, and enrich your communities.
In contrast, people who don't experience alignment and wholeness can feel stuck—they might struggle to build healthy relationships and create positive changes. In many cases, they may have internalized self-limiting beliefs and become reliant on maladaptive coping mechanisms to suppress, escape, or overcompensate for negative emotions, sensations, and thoughts, and can inadvertently transmit these patterns to their loved ones and colleagues.
This interactive, experiential workshop combines neuroscience and mindfulness to strengthen the neural networks that integrate the brain so that you can experience more and more alignment and wholeness, and increase your capacity to be open, attuned, responsive, resourceful, resilient, curious, insightful, creative, innovative, collaborative, inclusive, and inspiring.
Part I: Know Your Brain Patterns and Triggers
In the first part of this workshop, you will do a series of exercises to understand how you move between three patterns of brain activation:
- Brain 1.0: Your threat system is on high-alert. You feel fearful, unsafe, powerless, and isolated. Over time, you lose hope and fall into despair.
- Brain 2.0: Your dopamine system suppresses Brain 1.0 by chasing immediate gratification, money, status, or a false sense of comfort and control.
- Brain 3.0: Your prefrontal cortex is able to calm Brain 1.0 and Brain 2.0 so you can bring the best version of you to the world, act in alignment with your core values and aspirations, and create positive impact.
These exercises enable you to recognize the triggers that activate these patterns in your everyday life and discern how you show up and interact differently when you are in Brain 1.0, Brain 2.0, and Brain 3.0.
Part II: Boost Brain 3.0
In the second part of the workshop, you will be guided through techniques to build up Brain 3.0 by activating and strengthening 4 key neural systems:
- The Resilience System: the networks for stress regulation and recovery
- The Attention System: the networks for attention, focus, and concentration
- The Meta-Awareness System: the networks for being aware of one’s stories, patterns, feelings, thoughts, and behaviors
- The Connection System: the networks for compassion and empathy
Recording and Hand-outs
