Happy Soul Food Friday!
Upskilling Ourselves to Meet the Moment and Meet Ourselves as well as Others Where We Are At:
Later this month, as part of sharpening my saw to keep growing & to meet the moment, I am going to embark on the Awakening Conscious Leadership journey with XChange.
This program is based in large part on the lifework of my dear departed soul brother Dr Danny Friedland, founding chair of the Academy of Integrated Health and Medicine, author of one of the first textbooks on Evidence-Based Medicine, Master Facilitator extraordinaire, Conscious Leadership Coach for the leaders of Conscious Capitalism among others, and an amazing human being.
As part of my prep work, this vid (below) was shared with me, and I felt compelled to share it with you.
Like Dr. Danny, at our deepest self, we are all trying to navigate and make meaning of suffering, identify our higher purpose, face our mortality, and leave a legacy. By understanding the choreography of asking the right questions, and assembling the glorious order of things, we can find our best and highest use in our short time on this earth.
There is nothing like the fierce urgency of now to reveal the answer to the deep and rich question, we often fail to ask and answer, namely, “What Matters Most NOW?” instead of the more common question, “What am I going to do now?”
If you are looking for mindless release from the ongoing madness, then binge watch your favorite show or use another escapist device to give you relief.
I get it. I do it all the time…
On the other hand, if you are willing to get vulnerable and real with your most authentic self and courageously navigate out of these uncharted waters, buckle up and enjoy the journey!

Thanks to DJ King for connecting me with the Awakening Conscious Leadership ecosystem, to Vince R for the Joy of 4 Seasons, and to all my kindred fellow travelers on this incredible and mysterious journey we call life.
Please pay it forward with purpose!
