Maintaining Balance in Daily Life

This workshop will help participants discover how they can best regain their equilibrium when their life begins to feel unbalanced. Being familiar with different leadership and personality styles and theories is critically important to being effective in our lives and communities.

Together, we’ll explore strategies that work for each of us to recognize when we become unbalanced, and identify ways to bring ourselves back into a sense of stability. We’ll be introduced to a tool known as the Personal Preservation Plan to build these techniques into our lives on a regular basis.

One strategy for maintaining balance includes mindfulness awareness practice. We’ll learn the technique together, share experiences, and explore ways to apply mindfulness in our daily lives.

Workshop Objectives:

  • Be introduced to Balanced Leadership Theory.

Cultivating Mindfulness Every Day

This workshop series will introduce you to mindfulness awareness practice. Meditation Instruction will be offered each week. We’ll learn and practice the technique together, share experiences, and explore ways to apply mindfulness in our daily lives.

Mindfulness techniques cause physical changes in the brain that improve our ability to focus and manage stress. Studies show benefits ranging from sleeping better at night to reducing depression and anxiety.

The final week will feature a powerful Juneteenth Compassion Practice.
