In this weekend retreat, Mirabai Bush and Gopi Kallayil, MBA, will offer practices and perspectives adopted by leading companies, such as Google.

Through this exploration, you will discover that you can recover from adversity more easily, create new possibilities, and lead organizations to flourish.
Tune into your inner technology and bring empowered connection into everything you do.
Mirabai Bush is cofounder and former executive director of the Center for Contemplative Mind in Society, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to encourage contemplative awareness in American life in order to create a more just, compassionate, and reflective society.
She has designed and led mindfulness trainings for corporations such as Hearst and Google and developed programs in contemplative practice for journalists, lawyers and judges, higher-education faculty, environmental leaders, social-justice activists, and the army.
She studied with many contemplative teachers, including Neem Karoli Baba, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, Kalu Rinpoche, Kanai Sensei, and others. She is a coauthor, with Ram Dass, of Compassion in Action; author of the CD and e-book Working with Mindfulness; editor of Contemplation Nation: How Ancient Practices Are Changing the Way We Live; and, most recently, coauthor of Contemplative Practices in Higher Education.

An avid yoga practitioner, triathlete, and global traveler, as well as a Burning Man devotee, he has spoken at TEDx, Renaissance Weekend, the World Peace Festival, and Wisdom 2.0.
