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.

The power of contagion

Human beings are contagious, of that there is no doubt. For me, the more important question has always been: what am I spreading?

Mindless contagion (the spread of a thought, behaviour or intention from one deeply habituated/sleeping being to another) will occur, whether I want it to or not. It's called enculturation. It is an essential part of who we are as living, organic systems. Far more potent are the implications of contagion of an awakened collective.

I just got a note from Frankie Picasso - host of Mission Unstoppable blogtalk radio. To date, there have been more than 190 downloads of our Thursday evening radio conversation that included Amy, Lori and Anne.

To me, this is what it's all about. Passing it on. People being willing to share with others an experience that has been meaningful for them. Being willing to declare themselves and be seen by others to have been drawn to and/or moved by something....anything!...that has awakened meaning in their day-to-day life.

When we are 'private' and 'secret' about what we are moved by, we end up stuck with what we've got. How could anyone know the potential we carry? How could the vision ... the dream that could shape our lives .... ever take hold when we are unwilling to do other than just dream?

Intention 2009 will happen - and it will happen because there is a new wave already moving. In this moment, I know that there are now 190 more awakened expressions of that wave....

Breathing is good....
