COMMUNITY AS MEDICINE, with Light Leadership

November 11-18, 2019


This is a cutting-edge immersive training experience based on a self-organizing decentralized governance model, the art of surrendered leadership, and integrated relating.

You’ll experience radical self-expression, a natural sense of flow, and ecstatic embodiment while building community with a curated cohort of other extraordinary individuals.

Are you someone who…

  • Is tired of splitting yourself into a work persona and a play persona, and are ready to integrate your creative endeavours with your intimate relationship, family, friendships and show up fully authentically at work or with your peer networks?
  • Has a vision of a more beautiful world that works for everyone – one that’s sustainable, regenerative and aligned with the UN SDGs?
  • Recognizes the value of collaboration and co-creation – who is tired of conducting and managing things alone at the top of the hierarchy and is ready to be surrounded by peers; by people who get it, who you can cocreate and co-invest with and who are ready to explore and play in a more dynamic and distributed leadership culture?
  • Is dedicated to continually exploring your own personal and leadership development, illuminating your inner architecture and cutting through the self-deluding BS to keep elevating your excellence?
  • Is wanting to support your communities to thrive without having to be too hands-on; to dip in and dip out guided by your curiosity and inspiration?

If you resonate with any of the points above… and you want to experience personal and collective evolution, relational coherence, freedom, empowerment and the space to fully express your
uniqueness, we invite you to join us.


In this cutting edge and fully immersive training experience, you’ll learn how to become acclimated to the felt experience of evolutionary emergence; you’ll learn what it means to become adaptable and emotionally resilient in connection with a group of peers; and to taste what it means to traverse a truly self-organizing, emergent, experience..

In fully embracing the opportunity ahead of you, you’ll have space to let go into the full freedom of your own and others’ emotional expression. You’ll get to release any legacy trauma or conditioning in your system and you’ll go home feeling lighter and brighter, liberated from a backlog of unprocessed emotional content and able to show up in relationship to connect with your loved ones and colleagues with considerably more spaciousness, presence and receptivity.

And as you engage the process, along with the variety of breathwork, movement and meditation, you’ll learn what it feels like to begin operating in a space of relational coherence and to feel yourself step into an embodied experience of surrendered leadership.

When I finally said yes to experiencing the full Light Leadership experience this past Fall, I saw that what they’ve been creating is a space for full range expression that is oh so necessary in these times of certain change..

I felt held and loved in the fullness of all that I am, in a way that allowed parts of me to express that had been held back for quite some time — the most intimate spaces of my heart could be held with love, in community.

On the other side of that, I feel the expansion of my own capacity to express more in the greater world, as well as the willingness to do so, in ways that will become more evident as this year progresses.

What Light Leadership has done is built a coherent enough community of intimate connection that we can take greater risks together.
