Nicole Havelka Consulting

Upcoming Events

Nicole’s events are for everybody, in every kind of body. All bodies can and should practice self-care in a safe, respectful, even playful space. Her restorative yoga sessions, webinars, group coaching and special events are all designed to help you relax so that you can become the best leader you can be.

Community is also at the heart of what we do. With each event, you’ll build relationships with people in a wide variety of jobs, geographies and perspectives. One things binds us: we want to connect with a diverse group of mindful leaders who want to defy the trends of exhaustion and complacency. And we don’t want to do it alone.

Two of the monthly events — Yoga/Meditation of the Month (3rd Sunday, 8 PM ET), and Brown Back Lunch and Happy Hour Networking events (4th Tuesday, time varies) —  are free. Please come get to know us!

Get more community support in the Mindful Leaders Lounge Facebook group, and through the resources and updates in weekly emails.

Making Meaning in the Chaos
A multicolored chaotic background with the word meaning popping out underneath a magnifying glass. The words, "Meaning Making in the Chaos" and the subheading, "healing retreat • Oct 2, 2021" along the bottom.

You are likely exhausted, frustrated, afraid and grieved because of the chaos of the past 18 months. You’re probably tired of videoconferenced gatherings. That’s OK. Bring it all here.

Join us for a three-hour retreat to defiantly gather: Leaning into the fears, frustrations, exhaustion and grief in order to heal through creativity, find our purpose and discover how we might serve our communities in this time of chaos.

The gathering will move between the larger group online session and a small group experience that can gather virtually online or in person in your own home or community space, depending on your comfort level. At least one online small group will be led by a person of color to create safe space for PoC participants.

In the gathering, you will experience:

  • Stories of healing through creativity
  • Deeply relaxing mindfulness practices
  • Creative practices that will help you make meaning
  • Small group discussion and activities

You are exhausted, and that is exactly WHY you should gather. You need to satisfy that primal yearning to connect with creative spirits who want to make meaning — and change — in the chaos.
