Mindful futures workshops

Mindful futures workshop are designed to help individuals or organizations:

  • Better anticipate the revolutionary forces of global change
  • Identify what’s beneficial in your organization/life and how to move forward
  • Put our collective angst in perspective with the power of visioning
  • Integrate powerful innovative ideas with body and spirit
  • Expand your organization’s potential

Questions to ask yourself:

  • Are we afraid to see what’s going on?
  • Do we have preconceived notions about the future?
  • What values are my life experience/organization based on and are they realistic?
  • Do I feel empowered about my/our future?
  • Can I/we adapt and adjust to transformational change?

Each retreat typically runs from Friday evening through noon on Sunday. The opening night includes a wine tasting and reception, introductory presentation, and discussion. Mornings both begin with early bird (optional) yoga sun salutations, followed by hands-on personal futures workshop sessions. Second day afternoon workshops are followed in the mid afternoon and evening by “personal time” for spa, massage, meditation, or nature excursions in the area (depending on location).  The workshop features an optional hike or outdoor activity.

Workshops can be scheduled during the work week as well as on weekends. For rates contact info@gaiasomatics.com
