A two-hour workshop with Mindful Catalyst and Social Entrepreneur Catherine Pawasarat, building on her 12 Jul presentation on the Gion Festival’s spiritual traditions and sustainability.
Beyond the hype, mindfulness and conscious entrepreneurship are coming together to create the future we seek. Awakening/Leadership is a program for Changemakers in startups, non-profits and established businesses that combines transformative practices to bring the change you want to see in the world to your organization. HUB Kyoto member, environmental journalist turned social non-profit founder and CVO (Chief Visionary Officer) Catherine Pawasarat offers this powerful workshop for change, following on its joint offering at HUB Tokyo on 10 July with Tokyo social entrepreneur and philanthropist John Munroe (HUB Tokyo member).

Ten years ago she helped found the 310-acre Clear Sky Retreat Center in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, where as Chief Visionary Officer she’s helped develop and implement a social business-based program combining mindfulness and leadership.
