Japan - May 2019

The BLI is pleased to announce a new Global Access Opportunity for 2019, Mindful Leadership Experience in Japan.

A select group of students will join BLI Director and Mindful Leadership Researcher Ram Mahalingam on a two-week immersive leadership journey in Japan. Students will observe and learn about mindfulness practices and contemplative art with a focus on Japanese aesthetics to help build their leadership portfolio to promote peace, dignity, and sustainability in their personal, social and workplace domains.

The experience will include classroom workshops on meditation, conflict resolution and peace leadership. Additional activities include a stay at a Zen Buddhist Monastery, a visit to the World Health Organization, a Michigan alumni event in Tokyo and meet-up with Japanese university students.

Students will train in mindfulness, art, and meditation to develop leadership that promotes peace, dignity, and sustainability in their personal, social and professional lives.

Dates: May 10-25, 2019
