Wisdom 2.0 Breakout 2016


Peoples Stage fb event pic 5

We were voted Top 4 of 96 People’s Stage proposals again in 2016!

“Yin & Yang: A Leadership Dance” ~ Sat, Feb 20, 2016, 11-11:45am, at the Wisdom 2.0 SF Conference.

Improve leadership by balancing yin and yang and using movement/dance to embody it!

Eric’s studied yin and yang principles since 1996. He says they’re often misunderstood and oversimplified. Kim’s an example of yin and yang as a corporate leader and embodiment teacher.

Our focus is
• leadership with more balanced feminine and masculine;
• scrumptious conversation between women, between men, and all together; and
• bodies moving freely, in a welcoming upbeat space. (No experience necessary.)

Eric Kaufmann – President, Sagatica; President, San Diego Zen Center; Speaker; Author; Advisor, WisdomMovement.org.

Kim Arnold – Healthcare Market Leader, Salesforce; Soul Motion Certified Teacher; Leadership Embodiment Practitioner.

Monique Martineau – Founder, WisdomMovement.org; Mindfulness Mentor; Former IBM Wellness Coach; Founder, San Diego Women of Vision & Action.

Don Morgan (Simplicity Leader), Monica Elden (WellBeingEmbodied.com), and others will be on hand to enhance your experience.
