Have you ever wondered about the grain of sand in the oyster? When the sand entered it brought irritation to the oyster. The oyster then covers it so that the irritation goes away. How like the oyster we are. We cover hurts and pains in our soul with layers of life and after years we no longer know or understand our core. This is why it is important to peel back the layers of life and rediscover our core authenticity. Stay with me on this journey...
Life is filled with unexpected lane changes. How well do you maneuver through debris fields you encounter? Part of the teaching that will be coming in late October will address 'sudden lane changes' in life. These events impact our authenticity and at times derail our forward momentum. Join us in October to explore this more deeply. Until then lean into your unexpected shifts and keep pressing forward.
Have you ever navigated a route for a trip? We often spend much time researching the roads if we are driving or the flights if we are flying. How much more important is careful navigation of our day to day journey through this life. Have you given much thought to navigating each day. Some do this with the use of Day timers or Google Calendars. Others do this with a list of 'to do' items for each day. While these are great tools to keep us on track with our daily goals they are not all that is needed...sometimes we need to dig a little deeper, peel back the layers of life that have lulled us into a false sense of serenity, and fight our way to our core. This site and this community of people will go on this journey together...the journey to the center of 'you' and 'me' and anyone that is interested in going deeper. Looking forward to taking the journey with you. Watch for the first class beginning in late October. Hope to see you there. Details will be posted here when the date is confirmed.
The definition of Authentic is: real or genuine, not copied or false, true and accurate, true to one’s own personality, spirit or character. That is a definition to spend some time reflecting on. Each of us are at a different place in our journey toward authenticity. Recognizing where we are in the journey is an important discovery. The process of peeling back the layers of life that have clouded our vision is difficult yet it is achievable. Through the website I will be offering classes to assist in this process. Through the Facebook page we will have a place to connect and discuss that process. If you would like to be a part of the Navigating Authenticity Tribe feel free to "like" this page and follow the community and discussion that will develop in the future. At some point we will have a tribe page that will only be available to those who have participated in and/or completed some level of the training available through the website. Until then we will continue to meet here on this page as the teaching material is developed. The anticipated start date for the first teaching class is the last week of October. Details will be posted here as the time gets closer. I look forward to connecting with you in the future and being a part of your journey to the center of 'you'. Have a blast today!
