Women and Emerging Futures

The next wave of my own evolution lies in exploring the potential of women to profoundly shape our world. Not only if women can but if women will...do what is required to make the difference. This demands redefining our notions of 'leadership' and reclaiming meaningful expression for women. To progress beyond historical notions of evolution through incremental change, we must redefine what it is to be human - and women are the key.

Choosing to trust

The end of our first full day and we are all different. More awake. More open. More curious. And perhaps most important, more willing to engage - whether we know how to or not.

As we went through the day and I listened to these women discover their dreams and share their lives, I found myself wondering what the essential element for accelerated evolution was/is. Courage? Determination? Curiosity? As much as these made sense to me, I was mindful that without the simple act of choosing - the act of declaration that it is so - those other experiences are not sufficient in and of themselves to change the course of a life from one being lived to one worth living.

Choosing. Declaring. The act of making visible what far too often remains hidden inside us. The act of choosing/declaring reveals to the world the intention that we carry in the privacy of our own minds. Once we choose, the choice itself becomes the marker for the road we travel.

An Emerging Future demands that we trust the sensory cues in our own body. Doing that is a choice - and nothing more. It may well be THE one that profoundly changes the quality of our lives.

Breathing is good....
