16 May Playgrounds, Gardens, Labs, FireStarters~

If you’ve been following me and the projects of Louis Alloro and Associates or SOMO Leadership Labs on any social media in recent weeks, you’ve realized that I have been here, there, and everywhere lately! Philadelphia! New York! Sayulita, Mexico! Oaxaca, Mexico! Cleveland! New Jersey! The playgrounds and experimental labs of my life and work have been expanding, integrating and bursting into new life in many locations and many ways in these weeks, so I thought I’d pause for a minute to fill you in. (Pausing to reflect, clarify and communicate is helpful for me *and* for all of us who...

01 Oct The Goose Story

This fall when you see geese heading south for the winter flying along in a "V" formation, you might be interested in knowing what science has discovered about why they fly that way.

By flying in a "V" formation, the whole flock adds at least 71% greater flying range than if each bird flew on its own. People who share common direction and sense of community can get where they are going quicker and easier, because they are traveling on...

We must help each other be mindful of patterns of delusion that may hurt to uncover. Things that may involve privately delicate matters having to do with other peoples’ lives. We need more honesty. Forgiveness. Transparency. Trust. Starts and ends with nonjudgment. Of oneself first and then,...

21 Sep I’m baaack!

Phew. Wow. What a challenge the past month and a half has been. Have lived the teeter of a downward spiral that left me fast asleep to some of the awarenesses of my higher self. Totally in a pity party and helpless to some extent. Alone. Depressed even. [See past few--and sporadic posts on here for confirmation.] But I'm back. With a smile. In flow. On my game. And boy, does it feel good. As challenging as some of it was, though, I can see some value of "going there" - reminded me that 'thinking your way out' is not always the...
