Leadership as a Practice for Healing the Earth

October 17, 2018 6:00 pm @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

  • Sumo

This workshop is designed for people working with environmental issues, climate change action, outdoor education, for those taking leadership roles in business, fundraising, k-12 and college classrooms, as well as anyone concerned about how to support the healing of the earth in this threatening time. It acknowledges that such work, while deeply rewarding, can also sap our own personal connection with the planet we love, as tasks, planning, meetings, and the larger agenda leave us with little room for our own renewal. Jim will draw on his extensive experience in “Nothing Missing Leadership”, a training he offers all over the country, as well as his years of experience directing Windhorse Farm in Nova Scotia, to link embodied awareness and the full range of our senses in reengaging our love of, and connection with, the earth, from which all the rest of our endeavors emerge. How can we nurture the “healing of the earth” unless we also allow the earth to heal us?

In his 50 years as an environmentalist and entrepreneur, Jim has experienced success and failure, and he has discovered that great learning comes from both.

He is a naturalist with a Master’s Degree in Ecology to support his seven decades of nature observation. As a forester, farmer, construction worker and businessperson, he has considerable experience in how things are built — and how they grow naturally. As a student, practitioner and teacher of mindfulness-awareness meditation, he knows inner leadership work.

For the past 28 years, Windhorse Farm has been his practice ground: in business, in community and in the rocks and flowing water of a pristine forested landscape. As a teacher, mentor, coach and organizational change artist, Jim’s work now focuses on leadership and culture change with individuals, and with a variety of groups and enterprises. The particular flavor of his work arises out of his experience in forming — and being formed by — Windhorse Farm (windhorsefarm.org).

The program is free, with donations accepted. Call 740 363-2548 to register.
