Authentic Leadership: The Alchemy of Awareness, Wisdom & Compassion

November 25, 2017

Authentic Leadership Calgary

Join Catherine Pawasarat and Doug Duncan Sensei in Calgary for a workshop on Authentic Leadership: The Alchemy of Wisdom & Compassion.

When you think of leadership, what comes into your mind? Being in command? Driving projects and people forward?

From Catherine & Doug Sensei’s perspectives, the best leadership is possible only when we are authentic and in real touch with ourselves.

Taking authentic leadership of your own life is an alchemy of awareness, inquiry and practice.  From this place of alignment and inspiration you can also lead and support those around you with far greater ease, wisdom and compassion.

In this workshop you will learn tools based in Buddhist and other mindfulness practices to positively influence your connection with self and the world around you.  We will discover how to cultivate self-awareness and powerful communication in order to lead and live authentically.

This workshop will be held on Saturday, November 25, 2017, in Inglewood, Calgary. 10am -3pm. *Please arrive 10 minutes early so we can start on time.

Location: Human Potential 360, Inglewood: 1231 9th Avenue SE – Second Floor

About the Teachers

Doug Duncan Dharma TeacherAchariya Doug Duncan has been teaching the Buddhist path to awakening for over three decades.  Known for his direct and compassionate engagement with students, Doug embraces the full spectrum of the various traditions he employs in order to mentor beings to a more awakened state. His great sense of humour, caring attitude and sometimes very direct involvement makes him an effective catalyst for opening the shadow, for very practical application of the teachings, for humorous and gentle relief when tensions mount and through a diverse range of explorations expands the teachings to include all aspects of life.




Catherine Pawasarat Dharma TeacherCatherine Pawasarat began her spiritual practices in earnest in her early 20s, when she struggled to make sense of personal suffering and international environmental and social justice challenges.  She has trained daily with Acariya Doug Duncan since 1998 in an intensive spiritual apprenticeship that is rare in the modern West. Since the early 2000s Catherine has provided dharma training and taught the path of awakening to hundreds of students, together with Doug and on her own. In addition to Buddhist philosophy and its applications to daily life, Catherine also draws on generative living (a.k.a. sustainability) and the arts. With Doug she is co-founder of Clear Sky Retreat Center in the BC Rockies and Planet Dharma, and a lineage holder for these teachings.
