FACE IT … LOVE IT

We hear a lot about how amazing Sheryl Sandberg, the COO of Facebook, is… she is extraordinarily smart, is credited with the “adulting” of FB, presented with great clarity at Davos… and yet on the FB board not a single female… in fact this has so fired up a group of young people that there is now a campaign, FACE IT, demanding female representation on their board… In the succinct words of the campaign group “The reason is that Facebook has announced a $5 billion IPO—with a corporate board composed exclusively of white men. We believe that this board of white men should include women of all colors. Because Facebook should go public with a board that reflects its own mission—to make the world more open and connected.
Simple as that.” LOVE IT… and this is why I want to work with young women…

A must see

Our Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) has just undergone a massive facelift and as part of their reopening, they have a video installation called “The Clock” by Christian Marclay. He has taken clips from movies across every era, genre and language and pulled together a 24-hour real-time sequence where every minute is reflected in the movie clip – either it is referenced verbally or via a clock or watch showing the time is shown… WOW! We sat through it mesmerised for over an hour. It is astonishing and intriguing and you can’t really fathom the work and research that must have gone into the creation of this project. What was amazing for me is how he has created themes, myth and story despite the disparate elements all linked together and this makes it all the more compelling for us.

The need for the journey is a call we all hear

“… The labyrinth is thoroughly known. We have only to follow the thread of the hero path, and where we thought to find an abomination, we shall find a god… Where we had thought to travel outward, we will come to the centre of our own existence. And where we had thought to be alone, we will be with all the world.”
Joseph Campbell, The Power of Myth

Creating the content for Boot&Soul camp has been so exciting and I feel that Mel and I have an amazing retreat planned for June…

The Balanced Leader

Creating this work focusing on energy centres has been such a fabulous creative process – it just feels right… I now have to trust others believe and value its merits… And in the words of Einstein: “The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honours the servant and we have forgotten the gift.” My goal with this work is to celebrate the intuitive, the right brain, our inner knowing and the individual’s deep capacity to blossom into a transformative leader.
