Sustaining the Soul provides a multi-faceted methodological approach to leadership and the inner life that combines philosophical discussion and hands-on exercises. In small- and large-groups, as well as one-on-one interactions, participants explore spiritual practices, create individual plans to incorporate the practices, and develop ideas about sharing the information with their colleagues. The program is offered in multiple ways to meet the needs of the individual or organization: in-person and online varying from 1-8 hour sessions, to one to three-day retreats. The trainings can be readily introduced into existing leadership development programs.
