The West Coast ALIA Community of Practice warmly invites you to join us in a weekend of practice in the art of Authentic Leadership. Recognizing that our community is our greatest resource, our experienced ALIA hosts will create opportunities for self-organizing conversations and skill sharing along side contemplative practices. You will be invited to co-create a powerful experience around the issues and questions that matter to you and our community - both our Community of Practice and the larger communities in which we work.
How do we survive and thrive in uncertain times?
What are the missing conversations that need to take place?
How can we address challenging phenomena like hate crimes, white supremacy and political polarity in constructive ways?
How can we draw on our practice of Authentic Leadership to show up well in challenging situations?
At this gathering we'll enjoy the key elements you've come to appreciate at longer ALIA events: contemplative practice and teaching, embodiment practices and meaningful conversations in a well-held container. We've grown an engaged and emergent Community of Practice together over the last three years. This gathering will be hosted by Morna Haist, Paul Horton, Catherine Pawasarat, Charice Pidcock and Steve Byers. We're very pleased that Susan Skjei, Director of the Authentic Leadership Center at Naropa University, will join us for both days.
To be clear about the dates (since Steve is still learning Eventzilla), the event takes place on May 10 and May 11, from 9am to 4pm both days. Registration will be limited to 60 participants. Lunch is included each day, as well as morning & afternoon snacks. We invite all regional Community of Practice members to attend, and encourage each member to invite a friend, colleague, or partner to register. Please also plan to join us in celebration of our community over dinner together on Friday night. We look forward to the dance!
