“I rediscovered my inherent purpose in life and how I could realize that purpose through my work. I discovered that obstacles were just opportunities for personal and professional growth. I now successfully lead and support my spirited team with a keen sense of possibility. What a precious gift to wake up proudly to my own authenticity and potential.”

“Most leadership workshops engage the mind, but leave the body and spirit behind. Real leadership is much more than a mental exercise. To leave body and spirit out is to cut your effectiveness by two-thirds. Naropa brings it all together in a powerful way.”
