Joining The Hive 2015

Raised by 37 people in 44 months
As part of my commitments to stepping into a new level of leadership and bringing my work to a new audience, I applied to, and was accepted by, the Hive conference: a gathering of global leaders dedicated to transforming our world.

Normally, I would have been stopped by the cost and yet, in this case, my conviction is so strong that The Hive offers me the conversations, peers and opportunities I'm looking for that I am reaching out to my community to support me in making this quantum leap: personally and professionally.

And I'm confident that attending will not only make an enormous difference in my life but in the lives of everyone there.

While there I will be sharing my vision that we all have access to a new reality through listening closely not only to the wisdom of others, of the living world, of spirit and, most importantly, the wisdom within ourselves.  Consciousness and communication, I've discovered, are the fields in which I play.

Hello everyone -

I'm two days away from my upcoming adventure at The Hive and I want to thank everyone again for all the support I've received already: financially and otherwise.

It's been a very intense summer as I've continued to work on refining my sense of purpose and assembling the fundamental ideas I hope to share with my fellow Hivers and beyond. I've also been working on my first book, It's called "Glass Bottomed Boat: Contemplations From Beneath the Surface" and is a collection of observations I've made through my work and my own contemplative practices.

Recently I've found that, much like my hero Thomas Merton, I have a mission to share the great power that contemplative practices have to transform the way we see our world and our lives. Contemplation gives us the capacity to experience communion and connection with ourselves and each other, as well as expand our awareness of what it means to be alive: all of which is critical as humanity faces enormous and seemingly intractable global challenges that affect all life on this planet.

I'm blessed to live a life in which I can dedicate myself to so much contemplation in the midst of raising a family, seeing clients and being a member of my community. And I feel even more blessed right now that I can share the fruits of those contemplations with a new community of friends who share my commitment to creating a sustainable, just and fulfilling world. That is thanks to all of you and I look forward to sharing more upon my return.

Jesi

We did it! My campaign is complete! I'm overwhelmed with gratitude and appreciation. The lessons I've learned in the past 16 days will serve me for a long time: lessons in risk, communication, authenticity, receiving, humility, perseverance and a host of other things I don't even have a name for yet. P.S. It took me 4 tries to correctly spell "perseverance."
Thank you to clients, friends & family!

Today is Day 15 and more thank you's are in order. But even more importantly, I want to distinguish the term"spiritual activism" as the core of my message and my life. When we use compassion and spiritual growth to serve and to share, to make the world a more compassionate and loving place, we are spiritual activists. It is the path of the Dalai Lama, Pope Francis, Martin Luther King, and Dietrich Bonhoeffer. It is a path to remember at a time when it is so easy to dismiss the spiritual path as either narcissistic or dangerous. It is a path to which I choose to give my voice ad my energy. Please give if you haven't already . I'm only 535$ from my goal❤
Thanks and much love to you today☺
