The rationale for this course is to develop one’s own life-cultivating (i.e. sustainable) leadership in relationship to the long arc of social change and transformation that existed before our time and will continue after us. We will explore ways of managing time and energy, rediscovering our agency amidst unpredictable and chaotic moments, and leading in a way that honors the leadership present in any given moment, as well as the leadership that preceded and will follow such moments. This course is in-person, interactive, and rooted in Taoist and Zen praxis. Students will be expected to complete readings, reflections, and activities that will deepen their leadership practice.
