Where does spirit meet leadership and action, and where does leadership and action meet spirit?
Bob Dunham over the last forty years has explored how action and leadership are not just external events but how they arise from within.
Rather than the common mechanical view of action and results in the world, Bob has discovered that excellence in action, leadership and impact in the world is imbued with purpose and meaning, with resonant connection with others, and a deep inner connection with life, the world, and possibility.
He sees leadership as a journey that takes us from World, to We, and to the meaning in your own Me. The lesson of the inner Me is to find your power of choice in all things – your capacity to generate. This inner search for your meaning has you face your relationship with your own body, emotions, stories, and being. It brings you to encounter your deepest care, heart, and soul and your relationship with life and what is beyond yourself – spirit - and answer the question “what are you going to do with this?”
Then the journey is a learning in action journey outward from the inner me to connect with others and make a difference in the world. The link is to connect your deepest inner care and what you are called to take care of in the world with your offer in the world and your path of developing mastery in action.
In this Experiential Exploration, Bob will sharing his framing of what true embodied leadership entails. He'll then lead us in experiences designed to help us get in touch with our deepest care, and how this caring is embodied in our bodies, hearts and souls.
