Seeds of creativity are everywhere. Literally in the air we breath, the food we eat, the earth we walk upon. To be birthed requires many. The seed needs soil, water and light to thrive. An idea arrives to solve a problem, or perhaps to bring more beauty to the world. To heal the broken. Like stands of DNA, the pattern … Read More

Integrity in action. A virtual team working on a project over months, and a breach of trust occurs when a sensitive piece of data is shared outside the team with damaging consequence. The leader immediately alerts the team to the breach, and to a violation of trust within the team. Within an hour the person who enacted the breach calls … Read More

Searching on the beach for answers to questions that for a lifetime will not be silenced. The beach is steady and constant. The sunrise reliable. Beauty chooses her dress each day to be sure she tells the world her story – that while all elements are the same, some days she is magnificent, some days she is dark, some days … Read More

Taking flight. Today I long to. To open wings I did not know I had, to soar high above the noise, the questions, the doubts, the insecurities. To watch the smaller patterns fall away to a perspective more vast than I could anticipate. To move above time lines, dead lines, past, present and future. To ride the thermals. Forces that … Read More

Injury. We think the physical kind is different from the emotional or spiritual kind, and in many ways they are. Soul injury needs as much care and treatment as a broken arm. Both can be healed. And the point is healing. Our origin stories are a form of soul injury. Trauma in childhood (or at any stage of life) needs … Read More

In our world of social media we have created avenues for everyone to become critics. In our business models of hierarchy we have separated the people making decisions from the people working to deliver them. As Theodore Roosevelt so well pointed to, it is not the critic who counts. It is not the person in the Ivory Tower. Unless we … Read More

A good habit to cultivate. Look yourself in the eye in the mirror at the end of each day. Have you lived your day in integrity? Been your word? Honoured your commitments. Have you loved and cared for yourself? Eaten well, slept well, moved your body, been present to beauty? Have you shared your gifts with the world today? Have … Read More

Utility or connection In an initial conversation with another I realised that we were both present for different reasons. She was seeking utility. How could I add specific use to her life and work? I was seeking connection. Did we have a place to meet where we held common ground, where our values and harmonics resonated? As a result we missed … Read More

I have hope for humanity. Perhaps one day we will finally learn that killing each other on a battlefield is not a way to solve problems. Lest we forget.   *April 25th is ANZAC day in Australia and New Zealand, the day the ANZAC forces landed at Gallipoli in Turkey in WWI. On this day we remember all the people … Read More
