LEAD 104: Tools for Meaningful Communities (ANTHRO 104, LIFE 104)

How can we live together and honor both difference and belonging? How do we create community amidst divisiveness and the existential threats of climate change, oppression of marginalized peoples, and our disconnection from ourselves and each other? We are inherently relational and have the potential to heal, flourish, and lead. Leadership and changemaking must be rooted in a commitment to deep inner work that cultivates wellbeing, insight, and wisdom. Inner work radiates outward to shape the systems that create and sustain our societies. In this class, grounded in your experiences at Stanford, you will cultivate skills and tools to enhance your intrapersonal, interpersonal and extrapersonal capacities to enact change for yourself and others. Working in teams, you will learn about and practice building community through the application of interdisciplinary frameworks that provide multiple perspectives on the transformation of the self, our relations with each other, our communities, and societal systems.

LEAD 107: Living Leadership: Ecological and Contemplative Foundations

Given today's climate crisis and the associated stressors on human existence, this class engages the question: What kind of leadership is needed to guide humanity toward a sustainable, just and thriving future? Using the lens of "going inward to engage outward", students explore the relationship between their personal values and beliefs and the leadership they wish to embody, with considerations of collective responsibility, justice, and sustainability. Students deepen skillfulness to navigate these inner and outer realms through nature-based practices, experiential learning, and applying ecological and Indigenous frameworks. Each class also features an exemplary guest (Indigenous wisdom keepers, community leaders, permaculturists, and contemplative teachers) to bring to life hopeful models of applied leadership at the intersection of contemplative practice and ecology.
