Remember the freedom, exhilaration, and peace you felt on your bicycle when you were a kid? Why can't you feel that every day? You can!

The path to peace is as easy as riding a bike! So hop on your bike (included in the workshop fee) as you are treated to a tour of the West Palm Beach art scene followed by reflection time.

Today's political and economic climate is weighing on people in business, government, education, and non-profits. It has affected the individual, family and community at large. How do we get in alignment with what used to make us feel alive, yet at peace?

How can we find centeredness in our dividedness? How can we find equanimity in the media maelstrom? How do we rise above it all?

As employees, we all want to understand how our talents and contributions are of value to the organizations we serve. When we are aligned with the organization's overall goals, we and the organization thrive. When we are not aligned, either we, or the organization or both, find it hard to survive.

Similarly, when we have inner peace, we feel balanced. When our peace is out of balance, we struggle to find peace in our relationships, families, and workplaces. The genesis for world peace is individual peace. It is important to learn techniques to develop peace practices, so we may bring it to our families, friends, workplaces, communities, our nation and the world.

Easier said than done, right? Wrong. This workshop helps you develop your personal peace acumen, enabling you to see it's ripple effect in your work, and throughout your life.
