What if your strategy meeting didn’t need to make sense? No, really! Might sound crazy, but I just came out of one of the most beautiful and empowering business meetings in my life. We met with my friend and collaborator Iris today to discuss our strategy in promoting our online authentic relating circles, which is a key challenge we’re facing right now. As usual, we began with a round of authentic relating (aka our own medicine), where each of us shared how we were feeling and what was alive in our minds and hearts in that moment. We were expecting to do some of that and move on to strategic talks, but got caught by surprise by what came up and followed it down the rabbit hole. And what a crazy dive it was!
It began with a feeling of overwhelment that transformed into a scene involving a zen mouse, a snake with an agenda, some playful swinging and another bunch of weird images. It ended with a feeling of empowerment, joy, inspiration and a calm sense of trust in our own wisdom and creativity. We realised that we’d been limiting ourselves to our rational minds when it came to business and that there was an incredible power in going into those discussions in a way that honours our entire being and our relationship. In trusting that power to help us get the creative energy we need to hammer out the details instead of letting them run the show. Thus our strategy meeting transformed from a rigid stressful thing into a space of empowerment, energy and creativity! It was an incredible shift that we felt was worthy of having its own record in our history of working together. August 31, 2018: the day when we understood how we want to have our meetings. Curious to give authentic relating a shot? Join us on Sunday for an online circle where you will learn the basics of the tools we used to create this space.

About Lessons in Paradise
I believe we already are in paradise, regardless of where we are and what’s going on in our lives. I believe life is a journey towards becoming aware of this and enjoying as much of it as we can in the limited amount of time we have here. The ‘Lessons in Paradise’ vlog is the space where I share my process of shedding patterns and beliefs that obstruct our view in order to replace them with presence, awe and wonder. It’s also my invitation to you – an invitation to connect and journey together by sharing what we are going through and helping each other see through to the greatest expression of ourselves. Drop me a line or comment below or on youtube – I’d love to hear how what I’m sharing relates to your experience.
