A 7-day deep dive into human consciousness, providing the insights and skill sets to lead and facilitate transformation in groups, organizations, and communities.


The ART of Leadership is designed for graduates of our Level 1 and 2 courses to deepen and broaden their Authentic Relating practice across all personal and professional domains, and to empower participants to become leaders of Authentic Relating and catalysts of cultural transformation.

This 7-day program is the most efficient, powerful, and sustainably transformational Authentic Relating leadership training anywhere in the world. We've combined and sequenced the most cutting edge training tools and practices to provide participants with a training process that is rigorous, challenging, and empowering.

Participants can expect the following experiences and outcomes from the The ART of Leadership:

  • The practice of Authentic Relating at the embodied level - the equivalent of speaking a language or playing an instrument without thinking about it, letting go of the structures that were necessary early on and learning to flow freely with the practice

  • Depths of self-awareness and insight - the ability to both identify and articulate personal experience in real time, and to track previously unconscious patterns, habits, projections, and stories

  • A set of powerful tools and practices to take out into the world and create contexts of human connection in all social domains, and enroll people into those contexts.

  • A clear sense of purpose and mission in the world - we leverage the group field to reflect the essential values of each participant through the means of expertly facilitated practices

  • Expanded capacity and newfound ability to facilitate groups toward coherence and trust, and to name the un-named in service of cultivating a shared perspective

  • A profound journey of living, breathing, and dreaming Authentic Relating with other staff and participants for five intense days of practice

Participants will have multiple opportunities to step into leadership and facilitation during the course, with rigorous guidance and feedback from course leaders and other participants. If there are any blind spots, distorted frames of thinking, or limiting beliefs, we will lovingly sniff them out and work together to create a new context of empowered leadership.

More information to come ~ apply in advance below!

This year, The ART of Leadership will be held at Freedive Gili on the car-free island of Gili Trawangan, one of the three Gili islands off the coast of Lombok. The facility includes nine beautiful, locally-constructed and designed Balinese bungalows, an open-air yoga shala in which the course will take place, an on-site vegetarian restaurant making home-made, locally-inspired meals, and a pool. The venue is located right on the beach, with numerous shops, restaurants, bars, and lounges all along the beachfront. 


Please note that this is not a high-end luxury resort removed from and gated against the local environment - as part of our commitment to teaching authentic relating as a language of connection and bridge-building, we want to provide our participants with ample opportunities to interact with the cultural and social landscape of Indonesia. All around the venue, local life is unfolding in its own timeless way, with fishermen coming and going with their catches of the day, children playing in the streets, and shopkeepers setting up their storefronts. (For information on getting to Gili Trawangan, head on over HERE.)

The Level 3 course includes a freediving mini-workshop led by one of the most accomplished, medal-winning, record-setting freedivers in the world - and owner of Freedive Gili - Kate Middleton. Kate is the third-deepest woman in the world, and has been teaching freedive workshops for over a decade. The overlap between diving deep underwater and diving deep into our subconscious selves provides an incredibly unique opportunity to interact with our practice of authentic relating leadership in multiple contexts. The freedive mini-workshop will be delivered in two half-day sessions during the retreat, and is included in the retreat price.

  • Home-made, locally-inspired meals for 7 days

My experience with the facilitators was out of this world. The containers they held made opening up very safe and welcoming. The laser-like deepening of their facilitation made it easy to access the places that were yearning to be seen.

“The words that come to mind to describe the weekend are: powerful, connective, transformative, heart-opening, community, humbling, and WOW! We talked, opened, unpacked, laughed, cried and grew, both as individuals and as community.
