Leading As Sacred Practice

Many leaders, facilitators, coaches and more encounter experiences that indicate the presence and importance of the sacred in their work and in peoples’ lives. In fact, more and more groups and networks are forming around the world to respond consciously and holistically to the urgency and demands of our times by paying more attention to the sacred.

For the past several years Holger Scholz, Alan Briskin, David Sibbet, and I have been co-hosting Leading as Sacred Practice Conferences and online programs to provide a space for the focused exploration of topics and questions related to the sacred in our work, using inquiry, experiential activities and reflection.

These annual gatherings have been alternating between Germany at the Beuerhof Retreat Farm in the Vulkan Eifel and California at IONS EarthRise Retreat Center. The participants—leaders, facilitators, consultants, educators and social activists—explore questions like:

  • How do we lead in ways that engage spirit, soul, mind and body in a holistic approach?
  • What is ours to do when fear and reactivity takes us into chaos?
  • In what ways do transformational processes evoke and engage the sacred?
  • What is the role of ritual to create meaning and stability as well as forward movement during uncertain times?

Our next conference is in California, IONS EarthRise Retreat Center.

Our inquiry has now led us to articulate six ways of knowing and leading that embody Leading as Sacred Practice. You can read about these and a larger set of Foundation Principles in this free eBook.
