What Participants Are Saying

“I rediscovered my inherent purpose in life and how I could realize that purpose through my work. I discovered that obstacles were just opportunities for personal and professional growth. I now successfully lead and support my spirited team with a keen sense of possibility. What a precious gift to wake up proudly to my own authenticity and potential.”

“Most leadership workshops engage the mind, but leave the body and spirit behind. Present in the Moment is much more than a mental exercise. To leave body and spirit out is to cut your effectiveness by two-thirds. Naropa brings it all together in a powerful way.”
Ritu Sharma

- International Youth Foundation

“My journey has been one of allowing confidence to emerge and trusting that what I have to offer is sufficient for what the situation is asking of me. In cultivating a mindset of open inquiry and risk, I continue to face and embrace new challenges and opportunities.”
Kim Kita

- Director of Special Projects and Partnerships, Colorado State University Operations
