The Path into Leadership Embodiment:

If you are interested in becoming a LE Certified Coach you will need to have completed the prerequisites of attending a Level 1, Level 2 and a Retreat Intensive. Below we have mapped out the steps you need to take to help guide you in the process:

STEP 1: Understanding the Fundamentals: Leadership Embodiment Levels 1 & 2

This combination Level 1 & 2 Leadership Embodiment course offers participants an introduction to LE, language, practices, principles and ways to deepen our awareness and explore our patterns that arise when we are in intense situations.

Once we are familiar with our pattern, we apply centering practices to help us shift to a more creative, compassionate and skillful state.

Working in pairs, we chunk down learning exercises to create a lasting somatic imprint in the body. Individual debrief and group discussions add to the learning dynamic. Click here to learn more
