Fleet Maull will be teaching a weekend program offering innovative leadership training. Radical Responsibility & Awakened Leadership will include talks, discussion and exercises in mindfulness-based emotional intelligence (MBEI), effective communication and leadership skill building. Those working in the public sphere will learn effective ways to engage with the challenges they face.

Fleet Maull, a former drug smuggler, radically transformed his life and launched two national organizations while serving 14 years in federal prison. By the time of his release, he had become a renowned meditation teacher, prison reform activist and end-of-life care educator. He is a pioneer in mindfulness-based prison programming and founded Prison Dharma Network, Peacemaker Institute, National Prison Hospice Organization, the Rwanda Bearing Witness Retreat and the Center for Contemplative End of Life Care.

Today Fleet Maull works tirelessly for social transformation as an author, social entrepreneur, international peacemaker, management consultant, leadership trainer and executive coach who catalyzes profound transformation in individuals, organizations and communities.

He is an Acharya (senior teacher) in the international Shambhala Buddhist Community, a Sensei (senior teacher) in the Zen Peacemaker Community and a certified trainer with Partners in Leadership, New Line Consulting, Peacemaker Institute and the Center for Council Training.
