The Way Grief and Love Make Stronger Love
The Courage to Grow: Finn & the leap into the unknown
The moments leading to Cedar’s death were fraught with questioning, indecision, tears, confusion, crazy mind. The Ego was driving thoughts born from fear. Thankfully, by some grace, I was able to help them find their way to the back of the bus so I could be present.
And in that presence the clarity of Cedar’s being, his way of holding that moment, shone through. And in his death, something more was born.
The Herd’s Secret to Finding Your Unique Gifts
When Finn turned 4, his person decided he had a lot to offer and sitting around with two old farts wasn’t going to help him discover his gifts. She wanted more for him and set out to see what was possible.
So often we hold on for comfort, out of fear, instead of being willing to risk what we know for what is asking to be born through us.
Ready for the Turn? When You Know, Act
One of the most impactful lessons I’ve taken from the herd is the brilliance of coming to our unique gifts and talents through Power With leadership vs. Power Over leadership. And it might just be a key to why so many millennials are saying No to the leadership models they see.
Quiet Hearts Can Move Mountains
As I walked over to her, I stopped short about 20 feet away and started speaking to her. She was pacing quite a bit. I had no idea if she would even hear my soft voice. I talked about Echo and a vision of a herd living and working together, and about choice – hers. I let her know this was an invitation and she was free to say no, or yes. I would respect her either way.
Coherence In The Face of Uncertainty
Are you or someone you love a naturally quiet person? In this world fuelled by dominance, the quiet ones are often seen as weak or less powerful than those who are large and in charge, especially when it comes to leadership. We’ve lost sight that quiet can move mountains.
There are thousands of quotes to comfort us, but at its core, there is nothing comforting about uncertainty. When we become aware of it, it triggers us, creates misery, disarms us, stresses us out. And yet, we all know, on some level, that life is fundamentally uncertain. So what does it take to live with it, to thrive with it?
