Resilient Teams For Challenging Times

Mindful Leadership

These unprecedented times for professional teams call for innovative ways to reconnect, replenish and expand creativity alongside productivity.

 Leadership and team building that incorporate the modern neuroscience and the benefits of attention training within a truly regenerative old growth Florida forest may be the perfect antidote.

Led by our Chief Experience Officer, a certified mindfulness meditation teacher through the UC Berkeley Greater Good Science Center Power of Awareness/Sounds True program. Jewell creates customized, bespoke, deeply impactful experiences for your team to focus, follow-through and build resilient resources towards success.

Reduce Stress

University of Michigan research shows that 20 minutes in nature reduces the key stress hormone of cortisol.

Ground

47% of the time we are awake, our mind & body are not occupying the same space, according to Harvard’s Lazar Lab research. Grounding helps overcome the wandering mind syndrome and arrive in the moment.

Breathe

From migraines to anxiety, many stressors are tied to shallow breathing. While our body breathes 22,000 times daily, few of us tune in for just three breaths. Yet that simple practice is profound to focus and wellbeing in the mind, body and spirit.

Connect

Humans crave connection. We are wired to be in relationship to one another, just like the trees, which we’re now learning, communicate through their root systems. Shared learning during retreats deepens connections and increases the sense of ease and wellbeing.
