What is a MEtreat?

An incredible investment in yourself and commitment to long-lasting growth, our MEtreats kick off with a two and a half day all-inclusive tranquil getaway nestled in Colorado’s breathtaking Rocky Mountains. During this time, you will learn, study, practice and reflect on the principles of Mindfulness.

Our expert facilitators are gifted at creating and leading a psychologically safe space so the connection you form with other participants is meaningful and long-lasting. There are shared accommodations, meals and activities such as hiking, yoga and meditation.

After you return home, we support your commitment for the next eight weeks as you incorporate the Mindfulness principles and practices into your everyday life. You will receive weekly email reminders, tips and advice as well as have access to a private Facebook community of previous retreat participants. At the end of eight weeks, your original cohort will reconvene for an interactive capstone webinar with your retreat facilitators..

Who should participate?

Individuals interested in engaging in content and activities that deepen their understanding of their own purpose, ethics, principles, motivations and conduct. Participants should be open to meaningful connection with their fellow participants who will be sharing experiences, meals and accommodations. 

About Mindfulness for Leaders

Register for: October 17 - 19

Practicing mindfulness is becoming more commonplace. How does it actually help you? Richie Davidson, neuroscientist at the Center for Healthy Minds at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, explains that practicing mindfulness daily increases neuroplasticity in parts of the brain that control cognitive flexibility; executive functioning like planning, problem solving and emotion regulation; and susceptibility to stress and anxiety. The Mindfulness for Leaders MEtreat helps create the space between your thoughts and actions that is needed to instill a renewed intentionality in your approach to leadership. You'll explore how to embrace each moment with its tender opportunity for leading, growing and inspiring. The MEtreat will deepen your sense of self and expand how you function as a leader. You'll find pearls of wisdom that can be directly applied to your personal and professional life experiences.
