A New Song for the World
Africa carries such richness in wisdom. When a woman of the Ubuntu African tribe knows she is pregnant, she goes to the jungle with other women, and together they pray and meditate until you get to The Song of the Child.
When a child is born, the community gets together and they sing the child’s song. When the child begins his education, people get together and he sings his song. When they become an adult, they get together again and sing it. When it comes to your wedding, the person hears his song. Finally, when their soul is going from this world, family and friends are approaching, and like his birth, sing their song to accompany it in the journey.
In the Ubuntu tribe, there is another occasion when men sing the song. If at some point the person commits a crime or an aberrant social act, they take him to the centre of town and the people of the community form a circle around her. Then they sing your song. The tribe recognizes that the correction for antisocial behavior is not punishment, but is the love and memory of his true identity. When we recognize our own song, we have no desire or need to hurt anyone.
Your friends know your song. And sing it to you when you forget it. Those who love you cannot be fooled by mistakes you have committed, or dark images you show to others. They remember your beauty as you feel ugly, you total when you’re broke, your innocence when you feel guilty, and your purpose when you’re confused.
(Tolba Phanem, African Poet)
Let’s honour and celebrate the Song of Humanity, of each wondrous human being, and of the World.
Let’s remind each other each day of our Song!
A beautiful world will be in the making. Thank You!

Something to ponder on...
Having a vision is one thing¸ holding a vision is a completely different aspect, realizing a vision yet another aspect, and allowing a vision to flow yet another aspect. Each is a unique ability.
Holding a vision in modern day life can be quite daunting and¸ is mostly absent. Most of the emphasis and attention these days are on realizing visions. Allowing it to flow is yet another neglected aspect of the entire process for a vision to come into being with ease¸ joy, abundance and possibility.
Leaders, who really impacted society in transformational ways across the ages were able to hold their visions and allowed it to flow. We all have the capacity to hold and allow a vision to flow into fruition. It is an integral part of Embodied Leadership. Holding a vision is a very visceral and physical experience in our bodies, whereas having a vision can be mental and spiritual concepts.
Sometimes our visions might feel too big to hold in our bodies, and we are not even aware of this fact, or be aware of how it limits the fruition of our visions. Sometimes we unconsciously sabotage our visions because we have never allowed it to flow like a river flows to the ocean.
Many leaders and executives are exhausted, despondent and overwhelmed because there are almost no processes in place to accommodate the holding and flow of visions.
We would like to invite you to consider and explore these concepts. If your life is not balanced, enriching and invigorating chances are good that you might want to explore the gifts that Embodied Leadership offer you. And you do not have to do it alone...

Lead and Influence with Purpose Series 2015
The word lead comes from the Anglo Saxon word ‘laed’, which means to set out on a quest or to navigate into the distant horizon. It has very little to do with managing and operating an organization.
In 2015 we are going to set out on an astonishing quest to discover and uncover the true spirit of leadership through navigating thought provoking concepts and infinite possibilities. Most leaders, when asked what the true spirit of leadership is, respond with aspects of leadership such as attitudes-, abilities, leadership-, acting- and communication styles, etcetera.
The true spirit of leadership is rich and all encompassing; it delights; it provides both sustenance and direction, it is the force/charge behind our intentions, passion and drive; it determines how we show up in life, how we relate to others and to life, how we interface with life and what we create/build, how we interact and act, how we engage and negotiate life, and as leaders how we influence and impact the rest of the world and our environments.
We are looking forward to sharing these stimulating and exciting events with you in 2015.
