Mindful leadership PROGRAM

Discover your greater purpose & manifest your vision into reality.

Living In The Gap’s Mindful Leadership Program is a 9-month program designed to support and guide heart-centered professionals to reach new heights.

This program is specifically designed for professionals, CEOs, and entrepreneurs who:

Feel called to make a substantial impact in their personal, family, and professional life

Know they are just scratching the surface when it comes to reaching their true potential

Want to explore new ways of being and doing (what got you here won’t take you to the next level…)

Feel like they have so much to give the world but could use some guidance and support

Thrive when surrounded by people who want to make a difference in the world AND live an extraordinary life!

Have an interest in learning meditation, mindfulness techniques, and mindful movement and how they can guide their pathway to success and happiness.

Living in The Gap will guide you in transformational tools for personal and professional development.

You’ll explore heart-centered leadership, community service as a way to give back, and entrepreneurship to allow you to generate resources and wealth to support your dreams.

During our time together you’ll:

Create a vision for your life filled with purpose, joy, and fulfillment

Implement habits in your everyday life that support your goals and vision

Take consistent steps towards realizing dreams beyond what you thought was possible

How to create daily habits that support your ideal lifestyle

Tap into the non-conscious via mindfulness and meditation to reveal hidden blocks to your success

Learn about your “inner archetypes”,  how to work with them to stop sabotaging yourself and spend more time in your zone of genius

Create a detailed “Personal Vision & Plan” and learn to intentionally create your future

Going through this 9 month intensive program has been the single greatest, most impactful thing I’ve ever done for myself.”

The program changed my life in a way I never thought possible, and didn’t even think I needed. I have built life-long connections and friendships from this program. The program has given me the tools to live a better life.

This program held my feet to the fire to truly be the man I want to be. I now feel confident that I can not only achieve whatever I put my mind to, but that I have the tools to be fully aligned every day.”

Profound Purpose Coaching

Living in The Gap’s Mindful Leadership Program is a guide, a roadmap designed to give you tools so you can feel limitless, abundant, energized, creative, on purpose, and unstoppable!

“Living in the Gap offers you a rare opportunity to truly look at what is vs what you want it to be. You learn how to take action and form life-changing habits.”  

Chris Johnston

LC Real Estate Group

“The Leadership in the Gap Program is the real deal. It has brought important things into focus for me including “who I am.”  I’ve been exposed to self-development programs in the past, and the “fire” often fades after a few weeks or months.  LIG provides a framework for ongoing accountability and repetition which ultimately makes growth, development and improvement of your life a habit. The program has helped me to grow in all facets of my life”.

Virtual Zoom Sessions

We’ll meet twice a month for live group Zoom meetings. These live video calls are 90 minutes each. A recording will be available within 48 hours for you to download if you can’t attend live.

You’ll also get:

4 (60-minute) one-on-one mentoring sessions

Weekly accountability calls with your peers

You’ll meet with your peers for weekly accountability calls so you can get support, be inspired and share your progress. Accountability is key to sticking to your new life-enhancing routine!


You’ll establish a daily morning routine including gratitude, meditation, mindful movement and journaling. Establishing a habitual mindfulness practice is where the magic happens as it sets the tone for each day. Get ready to start your day grounded, calm, and anchored in possibility!

Establishing a habit of mindfulness is where magic happens

The practices we’ll teach you will train your non-conscious mind to work on your behalf to break unhealthy habits. With practice you can change the programming!

With these practices, you’ll become more productive, clear-minded, focused and you’ll accomplish more in less time!

Still think you don’t have time for a daily mindfulness practice?

Research has shown that people who meditate on a regular basis have access to more brain capacity thus making them more productive and capable of problem-solving. Meditation and mindfulness practices have been shown to reduce anxiety, improve stress response and sleep quality, increase energy and reduce levels of depression.


(Optional but highly recommended)

You’ll be invited to volunteer with a non-profit or community of your choice. Giving back is not only rewarding but enriching on so many levels!
