Healing The Divide Through Skillful Connection

4 days of connecting and exploring, where you’ll learn and practice what’s working best in the field of self-development, relationship, facilitation, and how you can implement it in your life and career.

The World Is Hungry For More Connection

In this global, multi-cultural, interconnected world — your ability to relate is essential. Leadership is no longer granted merely by authority; it’s granted in each moment and connection. Now more than ever, our attention on personal and cultural development is critical for the quality of leadership the world hungers for.

(Re)Introducing the Relational Leadership Summit!

Relational Leadership Summit is unique because it brings together leaders and enthusiasts who have been experimenting with relational development practices both personally and professionally, together in the same room with beginners, to share their ideas, inspirations, and most effective practices to discover and collaborate on what’s coming ahead.

Why are we doing this?

Because as leaders in a developing field, it’s easy to get entrenched in our own communities and modalities, and lose perspective on the bigger picture of what’s possible as we help foster relational intelligence. As leaders and innovators, we need relationships with each other so that we can harness the resource we need to go back into the trenches of our important work.

That’s why the Relational Leadership Summit was created, and now you’re invited to be a part of it.

This event is for you if:

  • You’re a teacher or community leader...

    …who wants to bring greater health and new techniques to your culture by learning from others who’ve been innovating with their own

  • You’re a coach, therapist, or facilitator...

    …who wants to see what’s happening with the cutting edge of group facilitation and interpersonal intervention.

  • You’re a consultant...

    …who wants to learn how others are increasing effectiveness, accountability, and trust with their clients (while getting more of them alongside).

  • You imagine yourself...

    …becoming any one of the above and you want to meet and learn from the people who have the careers you’re looking into.

  • You're interest in the cutting edge of personal development...

    …and you want practice and learn some of the most exciting growth modalities that are being effectively applied to help the world grow and heal.

  • You enjoy meeting others who are similarly committed...

    …to self-development, personal practice, and healing their relationship with self, other, and the world.

If this describes you, then you should join us!

What to Expect at RLS 2017

  • Curated TED-like 15min Keynote Presentations from Authorities in the Field

    We’re not in to long-winded talks that hold the audience captive for longer than necessary. Our special guest presenters get straight to the point to share what they’ve learned from their experience in the field.

  • Interactive Breakout Sessions of all Flavors

    This is where we take advantage of all the amazing people coming together, and dive deeper into practice and integration. Twice each day there will be 60-90min breakout workshops with embodiment, authentic relating / circling, and topical discussion options.

  • Valuable Networking and Connections

    We’ve learned that this is where the Relational Leadership Summit really shines. By having practitioners from many different levels of experience and application all under one roof for four days, the innovation through connection can be magical.

  • A Truly Unique Halloween Party

    Why connect just during the day?  This year, the Relational Leadership Summit will host the Masquerade ~ Revelations on Parade, a party that will fill our 14’sqft facility with music, poetry, games, art, creative interaction, contemplation, and individual expression. We’ll have extra tickets available for friends and family to join here.
