About Us

What We Do

Leadership Embodiment techniques give us ways to access our creative abilities even in stressful circumstances. The LE model includes distinct ways of describing and analyzing how we behave in stressful situations. Using LE techniques, we scrutinize our habitual behaviors, examine the way we sit and stand, and learn how to shift our state of being so we can give more skillful responses in our quest of uniting mind, body and spirit.
