"Trust The Process", she said

It's been almost a year since the thread of a possible retreat design began forming. Since then, I've been leaning into parts only to finding myself shutting down and distancing from them when the frustration that things weren’t progressing started to set in.

Essentially, I was getting frustrated with myself for the lack of progress, as I had given myself a personal deadline to create the retreat, and I wasn't meeting it. I started questioning my abilities and readiness and then...

THE SHAPE OF YOUR LEADERSHIP

Our movements and the way we hold ourselves are strong indicators to our perception of ourselves, the world and our subsequent behaviour. The postures and movements that we do regularly become ingrained. They become our patterns and the filtered lens through which we experience the world. We are all operating our patterns all the time. It feels comfortable and familiar, it feels like home. So we think that sitting or moving a certain way is natural, when in fact it is merely habitual....

THE COST OF DISEMBODIMENT

The distance we live from our body is the distance we live from our self, from our emotional reality.

In the socially manufactured separation of spirit and biology the capacity to feel and sense has been lost. conscience, self-refection, historical memory, imagination, compassion, intuition, energy, and a spiritual truth are less accessible to us when our ability to feel has been trimmed from us. this leads to innumerable problems, including difficulty in building trust, working...

AN UNEXPECTED LESSON: What COVID-19 has taught us about inclusion and diversity

Dignity of life is what we need more of to care, connect and open

The elbow bump has become the new ‘hello’. A wave from afar, the new handshake. We’re living through a time where a simple trip out to the supermarket now involves face masks, gloves, hand-washing and antibacterial gel. Everyone around the world is making a conscious effort to create new habits with the sole purpose of keeping us all safe.

Prior to the Covid-19 era, the term and practice of inclusion was...

CREATING ORDER WHILE BEING WITH CHOAS

Like everyone else, pre-Covid-19, I had in place rituals that helped me stay connected to the world and the people I loved. My life had a structure that helped me work toward the future I wanted to create for myself, it had meaning.

All those rituals helped me feel that I am in control of my life and in-charge of my own destiny. All these rituals made me feel safe, connected and dignified.

Like everyone else, when Covid happen, I felt all kinds of feelings but most importantly, I felt the...

MISSING PIECE, LEADERSHIP THAT CHANGES

Activate your sense of action

it’s been almost two decades since my work with leaders began. My interest in leadership development was merely an interest in making sense of my own leadership journey and why personal leadership matters.

While working with leaders in my capacity as a facilitator or a coach, I noticed that although, they experience big insights, realisations, yet the integration of the new needed shift isn’t so easy, even at times creating more frustration and...

WHAT IS YOUR MEDICINE

All flow from the same source. Walk backwards and you will see what you are here to serve.

This morning, I set to work on my medicine map. Medicine map is another way of looking at what am I here to work on. What is my contribution, but not from the head space of management and leadership model, but from lineage, mother nature ancient wisdom. I have been paying attention to the fractal and patterns that I found myself attracted and fascinated by in my walks, cycling, television watching,...

LIFE AS A LABYRINTH WALK

Sacred, simple and full of wandering twists and turns.

In the last 05 days, I started sensing the spiralling within. Feeling a bit overwhelmed with the various initiated projects and yet, no progress.

I could sense the tightening of the shoulders, a restricted breath, and tightness on the side of my front neck. Most importantly I am noticing the blockage in my throat, which for me, is a sign that I am not admitting something to myself and I am berrying myself under a pile of work to avoid...

THE SIGHT OF A SOUL

Empowerment happens when we inhabit our body.

My mentor Jack Kornfield in his podcast “the wisdom hour” shares the story of a man that lived 10 metre away from his body. In all honesty that was me few years back. The only thing I sensed in my body, was my back aches, my headaches, hunger, anger and fatigue.

Sitting through my body scan meditation, was torture. Every part I connected with, felt numb, numb and number. I have to say, I asked myself if this practice of meditation was...
