Embodied Transformation – Strozzi Institute

Embodied Transformation


This residential program is a benchmark for transformational leadership development, both in the US and in Europe.

What is

Embodied Transformation?

The training is experiential and takes place over four days of practices and reflection. The goal is to develop leaders able to embody the skills of authenticity, integrity, accountability and trust necessary to take skilful and creative action in real time.

One of the main takeaways of this training is to generate awareness about what you practice and how you do it. The nature of your practices reveals you beliefs, values and “Conditioned Tendencies”. What you do and how you do it is surprisingly revealing once you learn to observe yourself from the experience in the moment, rather than post rationalising the experience.

“We are what we practice and we are always practicing something” – Dr Richard Strozzi-Heckler

Observing what you practice is a good way to discover who you are. How aligned are your actions with your goals, personal and professional? If you have the presence and the impact you desire, the quality of relationships you want and general wellbeing, it is as a result of the decisions you make and the actions you take.

Strozzi Institute

The Strozzi Institute is the original architect of the Embodied Transformation program, a unique approach to personal development and transformation that explores realms of learning and understanding that go beyond the cognitive brain: through embodied learning, students acquire a holistic vision of their being in action, as well as developing new abilities and behaviors.

For over 50 years, the Strozzi Institute has delivered innovative training programs and accompanied thousands of leader around the world, both in the multinational setting, as suppliers of major Fortune 500 organizations, and in an institutional framework, including government agencies, the US Marine Corps and NATO, as well as actively collaborating with a number of NGOs.

With Embodied Learning, new knowledge is acquired and used not only by cognitive functions – i.e, the thinking self – but by all parts of our brain and organs; i.e., the feeling self, or totality of one’s being.


Where it is held?

Embodied Transformation is taught in Barcelona in english with residential accomodation in the the historic Masía Can Juliá. With more than 500 years of history, this rural residency provides an optimal setting for teaching and lodging. The property is surrounded by vineyards and forests, giving the opportunity to integrate the learning experience during walks and conversations with others.

Some of the practices require freedom of movement, so comfortable clothing and shoes are recommended.
