FALL 2020-SUMMER 2021
The universe is not indifferent to our existence - it depends on it. - Stephen Hawking
A year long authenticity intensive for change-makers ready to step fully into their power.
The world needs leadership now. Is your legacy worthy of the challenges of this lifetime?
The Woodstock Sessions is a year-long centering intensive for senior executives, designed to explore questions of impact and legacy through tools and practices that clear the path to the inner terrain of power, insight, and passion within you. Fostering new inroads, The Woodstock Sessions enable you to navigate the world with greater purpose, clarity, and alignment of your energy in support of the contributions and positive impact you most dearly long to make.
Comprised of pioneering leaders and catalysts, The Woodstock Sessions invite you inward to gather with peers in unknowing, to explore your own depths so that you can activate your power and purpose to more powerfully contribute in all the venues you encounter in the world.
Beyond the competencies you have aggregated throughout your life and career, The Woodstock Sessions are a call to step away from the life you have been told to create, to access and more truly align your energy and actions resulting in a legacy of your own making.
You have felt your own restlessness to more fully contribute. The world cannot wait any longer. Are you ready to respond to the call?
Participants are adults with established leadership in their respective careers, actively participating in the world, who sense that whatever they have built for themselves is an approximation of what they are capable of contributing. They are hungry seekers, and understand this is not a spectator sport, not a retreat, but rather an intensive to support their responding to the call to greater connection with themselves and contribution in the world.
“Without reflection, we go blindly on our way, creating more unintended consequences, and failing to achieve anything useful.”
― Margaret Wheatley
Gather in a circle of intelligent agitators to dig deeply beyond your trained competencies and access your own fundamental strengths. We meet four times over the course of a year in profoundly inspiring locations to ask and explore powerful questions about the challenges facing our world. Learn practices that keep you connected to your truth, so that you can navigate life more powerfully. Be supported by coaching, group learning calls, and accountability mechanisms. In this game-changing year, you'll step beyond the life you've built, and into the life of intentional contribution you are capable of making.
Leverage earth-based wisdom practices, authentic expression experiences, energy work, visioning, movement, presencing, and self-inquiry. Learn how to connect these skills and awarenesses to how you navigate the world for greater impact and satisfaction. You will access emergent aspects of yourself that our culture leaves dormant, and are restless for you to awaken to and act from. Each gathering will ground you in, and build upon these tools. Support provided in intervening months will help you go beyond theory and put them into action.
Your team includes Rebecca Singer, Shaman and lifelong teacher of multiple insight modalities; Tevis Trower, renowned executive coach, leadership and organizational culture catalyst; Aileen Gural, Omega Institute Advisory Board member, creative muse and skilled facilitator; Mike Iannuantuano, drum Shaman, each of whom have dedicated their lives to the inner journey that powers and defines every lifetime.

"A human being is a part of the whole, called by us the "Universe," a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separate from the rest - a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security. "
- Albert Einstein
