Online course led by Leah Rampy

July 3 – August 28, 2024

Do you yearn to explore a way of leading that is more aligned with your heart?

Join Leah Rampy to reflect on and gain support for contemplative leadership, a countercultural practice grounded in deep listening and compassion.

Whether you are in a formal or informal leadership role, you’ll find practices and support to help you remain spacious, flexible and open to the True Leader, the Spirit.

With hearts wide open, we can see how to lead in a more contemplative way.

Through six modules of content videos and audio, Leah Rampy will explore compassion and power as dimensions of contemplative leadership. This seminar offers space for reflection and support for contemplative practice at a time in our world where contemplative leadership is needed now more than ever.


  • To create a shared understanding of contemplative leadership
  • To explore the concepts of compassion and power as dimensions of contemplative leadership
  • To offer space for reflection and support for contemplative practice
  • To provide resources and support for your contemplative leadership

Listen to Leah’s guided meditation on compassion to give you a taste of the content of the seminar:

“This course helped me slow down to consider leading from the heart once again. It reminded me of the value of continuous practice of compassion in leadership and prompted me to return to our original Source of all power.”

– Karen D.
