"No matter if you’re leading teams or leading yogis, mindful examination of your own experience and the experience of others during a gathering is the key to shifting a “normal” facilitation into a transformational one. Kate and I believe that incorporating mindfulness into each element of your facilitation–from before you even begin, to long after you leave–is the key to creating powerful, life-changing moments for others."
