A Foot in Two Worlds
For years, I felt as though I had a foot in two different worlds.
After completing my Master’s, I launched into environmental consulting. As I went on, my concentration has shifted increasingly to corporate sustainability, organizational development and (always) best practices.
I’ve served all levels of government, businesses large to small, non-profits and other agencies. I worked on my own with clients and as part of teams on single and multi-agency projects.
My work has been as varied as the projects I’ve taken on: gap analysis, program and project evaluations, model and systems development, best practices cultivation, win-win negotiations for conflict situations, stakeholder/public input processes, focus groups, research, policy development, change management, communications – to name a few.
I’ve also given hundreds of facilitations, talks and trainings – with all kinds of groups, individuals, ages and diverse topics.
All of that has left me with a range of abilities:
- Discerning underlying patterns invisible to others
- Shifting people into deeper awareness and clarity
- Communicating complex ideas simply
- Designing breakthrough processes
- Identifying misalignments
- Bringing out of people and organizations what they really wanted but couldn’t quite reach or understand on their own.
My Other Foot
Still, there was the problem of having a foot in two different worlds.
I started ‘mindfulness’ early.
As young as I can remember, I viewed life as a journey of personal evolution.
It wasn’t as though anyone told me. And I never spoke about it. I just focused on self-evolution, awareness. It was the central tenet of my life.
People who’ve watched me work have made comments like, ‘For other people, it’s just a job, but you bring your heart and soul to it.’
But that was nothing compared to the energy I brought to this other side of my life.
As an adult, my search widened and deepened. Inner Power. Awareness. Emotional resilience. Mindset. Energy healing. Meditation practices. Consciousness. Brain states. Flow. And how all of it applied to life experience.
As important as this was to me, I only rarely brought this world into my work and public view.
This is the deeper work I have to share. The path of personal power that deepens expression, connection, satisfaction and authenticity. And it’s an adventure I’m now sharing with you.
