I am profoundly grateful for the invitation to be here in China and to guide a series of programs exploring authentic leadership, effective communication, personal wholeness, and professional integrity at House of I (near Yanqing). I am based at this remarkable holistic organization, ecovillage-in-the-making, new property development and sustainable living center that serves as the host for these programs. My home here is located about two hours’ drive away from the bustling metropolis of Beijing. It is a vivid contrast to that thriving city: a quieter, beautiful and serene setting against a backdrop of mountains.
