It’s easy to go through the day reacting to all that’s happening. What if, instead of reacting, we practice BEacting? In this session, Megan will build on the idea that we have choices, and that it is possible (and preferable) to know and name our emotions as they are, even as we aim towards better (whatever better looks like in this moment). Megan will also set the stage for the rest of the speakers this week.
As the founder of Wholebeing Institute, Megan McDonough leads with divergent thinking and creative perspectives to build organizations and networks that harness the best in people for the greatest good. She has decades of leadership experience in diverse settings, in roles ranging from Alliance Manager of a $300 million relationship at DuPont; to General Manager of RISE at Kripalu, the largest yoga retreat center in North America; to numerous online-learning startups. A yoga enthusiast, Megan has practiced for more than 20 years and taught for more than a decade, and brings that mindfulness practice to her leadership. Her degree in biology, natural science, and nuclear medicine has little to do with her current work, and everything to do with her radically receptive approach to life. She is the award-winning author of four books on living mindfully.
