Join Team Reboot, meditation instructor and author Sharon Salzberg, and 15 other amazing leaders for a weekend retreat to reboot and refresh what it means to be a CEO. Registration is now open for the Fall 2016 CEO Bootcamp on October 5-9, 2016, at Devil’s Thumb Ranch in Colorado. You’re kicking ass, but being the CEO of a startup is hard. It can be lonely. Long hours. Constant demands. Never-ending-unforgiving-to-do lists. And no manual.
Immerse yourself in the complexity and vulnerability of being a CEO with 15 other smart and courageous entrepreneurs. CEO Bootcamp will be a mix of pragmatic wisdom from Reboot, meditation, yoga, hikes, shared meals and lots of honest conversation. You will leave with greater awareness of your personal leadership habits as well as a customized strategy for being the leader you want to be and a network of peers that you can rely on. Bootcamp will be both rigorous and relaxing. You and 15 other leaders will be led by Team Reboot and meditation instructor Sharon Salzberg through a rigorous and restorative weekend at Devil’s Thumb Ranch Resort & Spa.

Join renowned teachers Sharon Salzberg and Stephen Cope for a weekend of loving-kindness practice (metta meditation) and yoga. The Buddhist and yoga traditions both hold that it is possible to systematically cultivate feelings of loving-kindness, or what yoga philosophy refers to as “friendliness toward all beings.” These two great traditions each developed practices designed to promote the experiences of inner balance, happiness, and equanimity, as well as compassion (karuna) and sympathetic joy (mudita).
Experience on-the-mat yoga practice and sitting meditation that foster loving-kindness, along with an understanding of the importance of metta and yoga in the overall vision of the contemplative traditions. Sharon and Stephen cultivate a relaxed, friendly atmosphere, welcoming people at all levels of yoga and meditation experience, including beginners.

Love and Relationship. It’s a topic that Buddhist teachings often speak of, yet in the modern culture we are often left to our own devices to put our meditative tools to the test in friendship, romantic partnership, difficult family dynamics, and work life. Join friends and colleagues, Sharon Salzberg and Ethan Nichtern for a weekend retreat exploring the many aspect of Real Love.
How do we navigate the complexities of our own needs and desires with the needs of others? Can we really love someone we don’t agree with? What skills do we have to face the inevitable disappointments in relationship? Both Sharon and Ethan offer unique insight from a lifetime of meditation experience – and both are currently writing their next books on the topic of love! Join them for a transformational weekend that will change the way you think about love. Weekend includes formal guided meditation, contemplation, and dialogue.
