Mindful Leadership Journey with Matt Walker & Miraval Specialists

October 18-21, 2018
What do you think of when you hear the word "leadership"? For some, leadership conjures up words like Strategy, Communication, Decision Making, Results. Some may think of leadership in the boardroom or government. Much of what we associate with leadership falls under the tactical side of things.
However, there is another level of leadership that deals with deeper layers of emotional intelligence, self-awareness, compassion. From the executive suite to family life, or simply your personal life journey -- we aim to take a look at those layers of leadership to cultivate a more empathetic, present, and focused you.
Join Matt Walker & Miraval Specialists at Miraval Arizona, as they utilize a combination of teaching workshops and experiential mediums to enrich and strengthen your personal and professional development. At times, Matt Walker will host a roundtable discussion following an image rich presentation. At other times he will focus on refining your personal values and taking stock of how you choose to apply these values: all through the lens of adventure. Additionally, he will utilize the natural space and amenities of Miraval to support our learning.
This exclusive retreat will demonstrate how adventure creates full engagement living and mindful leadership skills.

The Five Elements of Adventure Workshop

75 Min. | A visual presentation that introduces the ‘5 Elements of Adventure’. Adventure in Everything takes five pervasive elements of exploring the world's highest mountain ranges and shows with stunning photographic images and practical insight how to translate the metaphor and experience of adventure to our everyday endeavors. The Five Elements help bring passion, energy, and support growth in our primary relationships, work and professional lives, and life goals. This session introduces the Five Elements of Adventure and includes a series of exercises that participants will build upon throughout the weekend program.

Closing Ceremony and Labyrinth

We will conclude our weekend with a closing ceremony: sustaining adventure and presence. Ceremony held at the labyrinth.

Mindful Leadership, Optimizing Power, Presence and Potential
In this lecture, Brent Baum, a trauma resolution specialist who has worked with over 30,000 trauma survivors, helps us understand the impact of our states of consciousness on leadership, decision-making, and the exercise of power.


Common Ground for Leadership
Join our equine staff to identify what may be blocking your communication as a leader and develop new paths to self-recognition and healthy relationships with people you lead. $45 pp

Intuitive Leadership: Clear Vision, Clear Actions, Clear Relations

Each era brings new leaders and we need leaders with a higher level of consciousness, who can carry a vision, see clearly through crisis and bring a new sense of community where each person understands their role and their impact beyond the organization they work for. The call is for each leader to be aware and awake moment to moment and requires a level of daily discipline that invites everyone to be able to inspire and guide others with a clear set of values. In this two hours workshop, we will explore different methodologies, rituals, and meditations to release old paradigms and open up to new ways of embracing the unstable world we are living in. $150pp


Face to Face with your Leadership Style
Explore your balance between support, communication and self-care as we examine leadership from 30 feet in the air on our challenge course.


Surviving Success
As we grow older, and hopefully wiser it seems like finding time for self-care gets increasingly difficult.  Exercise feels like a constant series of disruptions and comebacks as opposed to steady progress.  The key to flourishing in this environment is to have a pocket full of efficient strategies that allow you to fit in the bare minimum when your schedule does not want to cooperate.  Join Andrew Wolf for a discussion centered on the keystone components of fitness and how to maintain them when life wants to make it difficult.
