You are passionate about making a change in this world. You strive to inform, to educate, to inspire. And yet, at times your carefully crafted message falls flat. Why?

Too often we, as changemakers, trip over our message—unintentionally employing counterproductive methods that cause our audience to resist, rather than welcome, new perspectives.

Powerful findings from the science of how people change—and why they don’t—have not yet made it to the front lines of therapists, activists, policymakers, and others fighting the good fight. Until now…

Consciousness, Communication & Change (C3)
Become a more skillful, engaging, and effective communicator

In this groundbreaking, experiential in-person workshop, you will explore how the latest research findings in social, cognitive and brain science, along with worldview and behavior change research, intersect with timeless wisdom from the world’s spiritual traditions to reveal the dynamic forces driving human thought and behavior.

Translated into practical tools and techniques that you can apply immediately, this cutting-edge research opens a window into what works, what doesn’t, and how to craft clear, concise and compelling messages that enroll your audience in a powerful new vision of the future. Through a seamless interplay of instruction and guided exercises, you will learn to:

  • Better understand people’s non-conscious motivations or biases
  • Deliver facts or evidence more skillfully and effectively
  • Steer clear of ineffective strategies, such as over-informing or motivating through fear
  • Sharpen and strengthening your own unique voice
  • Root your vision in shared values
  • Enhance people’s sense of membership and community, and
  • Ground your strategies in science

If your job or life’s purpose is to create a thriving and equitable human presence on this planet, this workshop is for you!
