Trauma-Informed Leadership in Community

Findhorn Foundation & Community

JANUARY to JUNE 2022  

The Findhorn Foundation, in partnership with the Pocket Project, will be offering this 6-month course with the aim to increase our awareness of individual, ancestral and collective trauma and deepen our understanding of its impact on us as individuals, on our teams, and our community.

Each of us is called to step into our inner leadership and responsibility so that, together we may cultivate our community spirit and host our guests within a healing architecture. During this course, we intend to strengthen our practices for resilience, compassion and vitality and open up to an increased flow of creativity.  

You will gain access to a wealth of online recordings and materials which will be deepened in our sessions together and grounded in inner reflection, practice and small group work

& introduction to this course

When experience meets us in our open, vulnerable and responsive aspects, it becomes water, fluid life. I can respond to my life circumstances as a leader. But if snowflakes fall onto ice and my life experiences meet me in my trauma, I can’t respond to the life circumstance, and then we call it a problem, a difficulty, a challenge…

 

This course will Give you access to

Tools for the cultivation of mindfulness and spaciousness - nurturing awareness, self-growth and compassion

Trauma-informed guidelines and practices, inspired by the Scottish Government Trauma-Informed Practice Toolkit

Increased ability to engage more skilfully with relational challenges and respond more adequately to symptoms of stress and trauma

Willingness to engage with difficulties as the way, rather than in the way, thus cultivating curiosity and wisdom

Increased capacity for relational and systems sensing as we meet our guests, neighbours and the environments we serve

Access to a global network of like-minded conscientious innovators and change-makers

If everybody looks through broken glass, then together, we are looking at a world that looks broken. When I notice my crack in my window, and you notice yours, and we start healing our cracks, then we begin to look at the world through clear glass. And that’s what trauma healing does. It starts unifying the world.
