In arriving to LaForet, a beautiful area in the Black Forest about 60 miles south of Denver to co-host the Ignite Leadership Initiative, the first thing we did as a hosting team — Todd, Erin, Corbin, myself — is explore the landscape.
We let ourselves wander. Let ourselves pause to reflect together. Let ourselves feel the silence, hear the wind, notice the scat.
I love exploring the beauty of this place. In part, because it gives access to the landscape on the interior too. Fears. Hopes. Crevices of wonder. Medicine trees of intention that welcome depth.
Design of a program isn’t just the outside, is it.
