Discover your greater purpose and manifest the vision for your life into reality




Living in the Gap’s Mindful Leadership Program is a 9-month journey designed to teach heart-centered business professionals, entrepreneurs, and CEOs how to use mindfulness tools to support and guide their vision to reach new heights.

This program is specifically designed for professionals who:

Dr. Eric J. Holsapple, author and business leader, has realized the value of mindfulness as not only a path to personal success, but as a sound business strategy.

Mindfulness can increase company productivity, reduce healthcare costs, and give businesses a competitive edge. It also creates an opportunity for far-reaching influence and impact.

Program Kickoff (August 2023) – This live video session will set the stage for the months to come. You’ll meet your instructors, meet your cohort peers, and get started on your journey!

In-Person Intensive Sessions – Full-day, in-person deep dives that will teach complex material in a safe environment for new experiences and create the space for transformation in a group setting. These will take place at the beautiful Tournament Players Club conference center in Berthoud, Colorado, USA, 45 miles north of Denver.

Fall Intensive – 4 full days, October 3-6, 2023

Winter Intensive – 3 full days, January 24-26, 2024

Spring Intensive – 2 full days, April 25-26, 2024

Video Sessions – We’ll meet twice a month for 60-minute live group video sessions.

Mentoring Sessions – You’ll have access to six 60-minute one-on-one mentoring sessions with our facilitators (in-person when possible)

Weekly Accountability Calls – You’ll meet with your cohort peers for weekly accountability calls to get support, be inspired, and share your progress. Accountability is the key to sticking to new life-enhancing routines!

Time Investment – Expect to spend about seven hours per week exploring mindfulness, attending class meetings, and completing assignments.

Establishing a 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!

The practices we’ll teach you will train your mind to work on your behalf to break unhealthy habits. With practice, you can change the programming. You’ll become more productive, clear-minded, and focused, and you’ll accomplish more in less time.

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.

Volunteering – You’ll be invited to volunteer with a non-profit or community organization of your choice. Giving back is not only rewarding but enriching on so many levels! (This is optional, but highly recommended.)
