Are You Ready To Experience A New Paradigm of 'Community as Medicine'?

Are you someone who...

Is tired of splitting yourself into a work persona and a play persona, and are ready to integrate your creative endeavours with your intimate relationship, family, friendships and show up fully authentically at work or with your peer networks?

Has a vision of a more beautiful world that works for everyone – one that’s sustainable, regenerative and aligned with the UN SDGs?

Recognizes the value of collaboration and co-creation – who is tired of conducting and managing things alone at the top of the hierarchy and is ready to be surrounded by peers; by people who get it, who you can co-create and co-invest with and who are ready to explore and play in a more dynamic and distributed leadership culture?

Is dedicated to continually exploring your own personal and leadership development, illuminating your inner architecture and cutting through the self-deluding BS to keep elevating your excellence?

Is wanting to support your communities to thrive without having to be too hands-on; to dip in and dip out guided by your curiosity and inspiration? 

If you resonate with any of the points above...

…and you want to experience personal and collective evolution, freedom and empowerment, we invite you to join us.

November 11-18 @ Imiloa Institute a pristine
5 star eco-resort in Dominical, Costa Rica.

and we'll see if you're a fit


This is a cutting-edge immersive training experience based on a self-organizing decentralized governance model, the art of surrendered leadership, and integrated relating. 

You’ll experience radical self-expression, a natural sense of flow, and ecstatic embodiment while building community with a curated cohort of other extraordinary individuals.



What I've witnessed in [my wife] most is her taking off her masks and layers of ego in how she interacts with the world. She’s felt safe enough to do this because she's been in a space where she feels loved and celebrated for who she is. So much of that is possible because of the safety and love and holding she’s experienced in community, and I know that's possible for anyone who comes into a space like this and opens their heart… I've witnessed it first hand. It's changed our lives.

When I finally said yes to experiencing the full Light Leadership experience this past Fall, I saw that what they've been creating is a space for full range expression that is oh so necessary in these times of certain change..

I felt held and loved in the fullness of all that I am, in a way that allowed parts of me to express that had been held back for quite some time -- the most intimate spaces of my heart could be held with love, in community.

On the other side of that, I feel the expansion of my own capacity to express more in the greater world, as well as the willingness to do so, in ways that will become more evident as this year progresses.

What Light Leadership has done is built a coherent enough community of intimate connection that we can take greater risks together.

Those who know me well know what I mean when I say I’ve been looking for the source code of human experience. Well I found it in Boulder a few months ago with Light Leadership and life has not been the same since.
