Everything that is real, was imagined first. --the Velveteen Rabbit
My intention for this year is: be real. This already has me thinking about how I am relating to reality and what stops me from being real. How often do my judgments, biases, and assumptions cloud the lens through which I view the world around me? When am I simply overlaying reality with pictures from my past and creating a distorted view of what is relevant for this world, today? And the bigger thought: How can I know the answers to these questions?
I'm going to start by defining what I am calling reality acuity--the ability to navigate reality like a rock star. As my gift to you this month, I am including my expanded definition, along with the symptoms that indicate a poor reality acuity; a signal, letting us know we can use some healing and support. As you explore your reality acuity, I encourage you to do so with compassion and an open heart.
I don't know how my intention to be real will manifest this year, so I expect some growth opportunities are coming my way--yikes! For now, let's say YES to being true to ourselves and living life wholeheartedly!
This is my gift for you this month. Enjoy:
P.S. with love. This world is hurting and our kindness matters. Let's be generous with our compassion and serve from our abundance.

From the seminar room: Tyler Scott, core series and more
Periodically we'll ask seminar graduates to tell us about their experiences in the seminar room. Southern Oregon resident Tyler Scott shares about his journey through the core series and Authentic Leader:
"I had almost no intrinsic desire to attend my first Wings seminar. I was asked to go by my boss's boss and thus it was my deep need for external validation and institutional recognition that supplied the impetus to attend WellBeing nearly five years ago.
"It was there, in that room full of strangers--during four incredibly bizarre, enlightening, awkward, revealing, exhausting, and empowering days--that the first dominos fell in what would ultimately lead to a profound change in the way I view myself and my place in the world."
