New York, New York, United States

Business Details

We support learning cultures that bring wisdom to your leadership.

Bhāvanā is an ancient Sanskrit word meaning “to seed,” or “to cultivate”—derived from “Bhava” which means “being, a state of body or mind.” 

Our firm works with learning and leadership professionals to manage the human side of change by bringing wisdom to learning. At this time of disruptive change and complexity, we believe that leadership and learning demand greater wisdom.

Our ontological approach expands unlearning capacity through contemplative practices to sustain increased awareness and action. Bhavana Learning Group, (previously, Zampella Group, Inc.) works with experienced coaches, learning professionals, and business executives to cultivate learning communities.
