Authentic Community Leadership Training with Sara Ness and Geof Krum

Become a leader capable of building new community culture

This is an immersive experience that will transform the way you lead and think about community while keeping your spirit and visions nourished. You’ll learn cutting edge communication tools and helpful structures for events and collaborations in an embodied, hands-on way. 

We intend for this to be more than just a training. It’s a 3-day incubator for sowing seeds, weaving dreams and giving you tools to bring learnings and insights beyond the duration of this weekend and into your life’s work. 

The full weekend consists of :

  • Community Connection Banquet on Friday
  • Authentic Community Leadership Training on Saturday-Sunday.

You can buy tickets for these separately or as a bundle.
