You will think critically about the beliefs you have about yourself, the people around you, and your potential leadership ability. You will have meaningful experiences around the topics of honesty, authenticity, trust, integrity, responsibility, forgiveness, acceptance, consciousness, leadership, and your vision for the future. You will experience a different way of relating to other people, both in personal and professional situations, so you learn to judge yourself and others less and live a more loving, connected, powerful, and purposeful life.
