Laura van Dernoot Lipsky’s talks offer a compelling mix of personal insight and cutting-edge research. Filled with stories, quotes (by wise men and women from Bob Marley to Wangari Maathai), and countless New Yorker cartoons, they have been widely praised as both engaging and effective. Laura’s concept of stewardship is based around the idea that a deeper understanding of trauma exposure and the tools for navigating systems will enable people to do their work better. Her keynotes often touch listeners to the core, but she consistently inspires audiences with laughter and a profound sense of hope. Many participants leave these sessions with a renewed sense of purpose and fresh optimism about the possibilities for transformation. When you want to go a little deeper or when you want to get away, either as a workplace or as a community, this could be just the thing. This workshop aims to offer a practical, holistic approach to caring for ourselves as we do the essential work of caring for others or the planet.
