Our practice and research focus on conscious leadership to evolve organizational cultures and business practices.

VISION

We view human evolution as moving inward toward increasing human consciousness. We embrace this view to deepen listening and learning, cultivating conscious leadership and business.

PHILOSOPHY

Our firm works with experienced coaches, educators, and executives to explore methods of learning and unlearning that cultivate listening and wisdom. We believe that leadership and learning demand greater wisdom at this time of disruptive change and intense anxiety.

Our three-dimensional approach explores the nature of being to evolve mindsets through contemplative practices for increased awareness and action.

THE BHAVANA STORY

Bhāvanā is an ancient Sanskrit word meaning “to seed,” or “to cultivate”—derived from “Bhava,” which means “being, a state of body or mind.” The Buddha himself chose the word Bhāvanā to describe a process of cultivation: the development of particular mental qualities such as imagination and awareness directed toward intentional change – through what we know today as meditation leading to mindfulness.

At Bhavana Learning Group, we support learners in cultivating awareness and seeding intentional change as they grow the leadership to serve their colleagues and cultures. Our 12 Practices detail this cultivation.

This STORY detail the evolution of our firm.
