Friday-Sunday, 2 nights
Plus 2 nights all-inclusive accommodations priced separately below.
Leaders in every industry must be effective, adaptive, and agile. They face choices that shape our communities, our financial security, and our safety. Yet the high-demand nature of their professional roles makes leaders themselves vulnerable to overwhelm and burnout.
While outward success may indicate no signs of this private suffering, as demands persist over protracted time periods, it is difficult to regain a sense of calm, clarity, or kindness toward oneself and others. Indeed, it is well established that high stress intervals compromise attention, decision-making, and the ability to regulate mood.
This weekend workshop is intended for leaders. It will interweave scientific presentations, group discussion, and practice opportunities. We will examine cutting-edge brain science on the topics of attention, mindfulness, and resilience.
In this exceptional workshop, you will learn:
The course is taught by three experts with diverse expertise and perspectives. Amishi Jha, PhD, is a neuroscientist with expertise on the brain science of attention and mindfulness. Lt. Col. Jannell MacAulay is an active-duty US Air Force pilot with a background in human performance and extensive leadership experience as a squadron commander, combat veteran, and Air Force strategist. Scott Rogers is a law professor and mindfulness expert who has developed and delivered mindfulness training programs for many high performance leaders.
Amishi Jha is a neuroscientist, an associate professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Miami, and the director of contemplative neuroscience for the UMindfulness Initiative.
An internationally recognized speaker, she has lectured at the World Economic Forum and the New York Academy of Sciences, among others. Dr. Jha studies the neural bases of attention and the effects of mindfulness-based training programs on cognition, emotion, and resilience.
With grants from the Department of Defense and several private foundations, she has been systematically investigating the potential applications of mindfulness training in education, sports, business, and the military. Her work has been featured in the Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, Emotion, and PLoSOne, and she has received several awards for teaching and innovation in science, including selection as a Poptech Science and Public Leadership Fellow in 2010.
Dr. Jha has been interviewed on NPR, CBS, and NBC, as well as in nationally renowned publications, including the New York Times, the New Yorker, Washington Post, GQ, Time, Newsweek, and Scientific American.
Lt. Col. Jannell MacAulay, PhD, MS, BS, specializes in improving the performance of members of large organizations through nutrition, fitness, mind-body balance, and optimal medical health practices. She is founder and president of the nonprofit organization, Healthy Body Healthy Life, which builds wellness-oriented communities by employing military spouses to provide holistic wellness outreach, partnership, and resources to military families.
Scott Rogers, MS, JD, is founder and director of the University of Miami School of Law’s Mindfulness in Law Program and cofounder of UMindfulness, the University of Miami’s Mindfulness Research and Practice Initiative. A nationally recognized leader in innovative and accessible mindfulness training for high performance, he is author of several books, including The Six-Minute Solution: A Mindfulness Primer for Lawyers.
