Bringing Feminine Power to the Workplace

Bringing Feminine Power to the Workplace

I am in awe of our human capacity for change, our ability to love in the face of pain and rejection, our ability to move even when we feel endangered, our courage to go where no one has gone before when we are moved by a compelling idea or a nagging question.

My compelling question to myself at the moment is “How do I bring Divine Feminine Power into the work space? How do we create disruptive business models that honor the real needs of resilient bodies, open hearts, curious minds and spiritual freedom?

Move Your Body, Recharge Your Writing

Move Your Body, Recharge Your Writing

Here’s my blog originally posted in Grubstreet Daily, Boston’s acclaimed writer’s community…

Are you aware you can leverage the intelligence of your muscles, skin and bones to produce compelling writing that moves your readers emotionally and physically?

Massage, bodywork and dance are my moves of choice. Many people think of massage as a way to check out of the work world, but it can also help you nourish your creative energy and find the mental focus and physical stamina called for in the crafting phase of writing. You can give yourself a quick massage, but it’s always better when someone else applies gentle pressure and warmth to those achy neck bones or tight shoulder muscles.

Tips that get you moving (and then get you back to writing)…

How Family & Business Constellations Support Inspired Leaders

How Family & Business Constellations Support Inspired Leaders

When my marriage and my business were going through a massive reorganization I finally accepted how my personal life was affecting my business.  Most people still insist they can separate the two but I’ve never seen anyone do this successfully.

Family and Business Constellations offered me the embodied experience of how family issues became my business issues. The process made it possible to choose a new path unencumbered by my own past entangled emotions and the traumas and drama inherited from my family of origin that were bleeding into my private practice in massage and transformational bodywork.

Once the knotted feelings in me unraveled, love for myself, love for the family I built and love for the extended family I was a part of on 2 continents could flow freely again...

Transformational Leadership

Transformational Leadership

 

Vision, courage and purpose are the hallmarks of great leaders.

Transformational leaders blend these qualities with expansive, mindful, compassionate hearts and fluid, flexible, resilient bodies to build organizations and businesses that nourish the balance between life and work. We work to live, not live to work.

I never heard of anyone on his or her deathbed say “I wish I worked more.” We regret missing family time, quiet time and play, connectedness to our bodies and to each other. We keep sacrificing love to labor.

Transformational Leaders understand that this sacrifice is not worth the reward. Love and labor must balance dynamically for life to be fulfilling. We want interesting jobs that make a difference and we want to come home to loving arms, warm meals, lots of hugs and kisses and playtime. Our bodies, hearts and brains need all these activities to thrive!

Body of Love

Body of Love

There are two streams of love flowing through our bodies at all times.

In his Symposium, Plato called them Common Love and Noble Love.

In modern terms I call them Love of Another Human and Love of God, or connection with the Divine Universal Force that nourishes all life.

They are strongest and transcendent when cultivated together.

Love of God is a vertical pillar. It enters your body through the top of your head, a silver light beam that fills your body then exits at your feet and connects you deep in the ground.

You determine the amount of flow by your faith, spiritual longing, understanding and awareness. This stream flows constantly, it is not polarized, and you can drink as much as you want. You just need to tap in...
