Time: Multi-day Event
Notes: This workshop is part of the Academy’s Foundational Program series

Dance artist, Martha Graham said: “there is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening, that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique.”

An attitude of learning – as a lifelong practice – is what feeds that vitality…

During this workshop, we’ll evoke insights from experience, and explore the many different ways in which we, as human beings, are constantly learning if we simply stay awake to ourselves and to the moment.

We’ll ask, “who am I as a ‘learner’? How do I stay connected to my own learning and transformation? What enlivens me? What shuts me down? How can I encourage and support others?”

This workshop is part of the Academy’s new Foundational Series. These five one-day workshops expand upon some of the topics of our popular Evenings of Exploration and explore the overarching question: Who Am I? You can take the workshops individually, or you can take the whole series.

Each daylong workshop is designed around an exercise from the first phase of the Academy’s foundational training: Leading by Being, and will introduce you to the Academy’s learning model and some of the methods and theory central to our work. Through experience and interactive dialogue we’ll discover how the intentional practice of learning can lead not merely to the accumulation of knowledge and skill, but also to personal transformation and the expression of our innate gifts and unique qualities.

Join us for this adventure in ‘learning as a practice.’

Supported in part by the 1440 Fund, an advised fund at Silicon Valley Community Foundation.
