Radical Responsibility is an approach to work and life that opens the door to inner freedom and resilience, powerful communication, authentic relationships and transformative outcomes.  This training-retreat is for those who wish to learn new skills and deepen their personal resilience and resources for meeting the demands of working with challenging populations.

Participants will train in a variety of mindfulness and awareness meditation practices, presencing, emotional literacy and emotion regulation, state shifting and self-resourcing, deep listening, the basics of motivational interviewing, giving and receiving feedback, and engaging in difficult conversations.

This retreat is designed for nonprofit and business leaders, helping professionals, and professionals and volunteers working with prisoners, at-risk youth and other at-risk populations or for anyone interested in cultivating authentic professional and personal relationships, genuine personal freedom and deeper personal resilience. The training will also address issues of appropriate boundaries and avoiding burnout and/or empathy fatigue.
