A Place for the Heart

the lab Apr 23, 2019
 
What is heart-centered living?

Living through emotional intelligence.

Stepping into what feels right and connected.

Finding purpose and meaning in your actions.

Working intentionally with human energies.

Getting intuitive about the unseen and unknown.

Pulling back the curtain on what is.

Pushing the boundaries of what’s comfortable in order to find what’s right.

Accepting the purpose that rests deep within your soul.

Carving out space to connect to the true essence of humanity.

Creating congruence between thought, feeling, intention, and action.

Welcome to where heart-centered living becomes communal. Any time we bond over ideas, and invite the perspectives of others into our life, we dialogue with the divinely human spark in each other. We reach for the special place of knowing, that deep wisdom, which compels us to share, question, and find common ground over collective experiences.

It’s an approach, it’s a perspective, but it’s also a...

TRANSCRIPT

Jeff: So radical candor.

Lauren: Yeah.

Jeff: Is honesty always good? Is it always a good thing?

Lauren: I think self love is nothing to hide about yourself. Like if you love yourself, if you respect yourself, or even if there's things you don't love or respect about yourself, but you're being true to yourself. Which is self love. You'll tell all. There's nothing you have to hide. Right? If I can't tell something to someone that obviously that means I can't do it. Right? If I wouldn't tell my kid, even my 10 year-old. I'm not proud of it, or I wouldn't want her to do it. Like anything I do or I have to be...

The Leadership Within

podcast Feb 19, 2019

The world is in crisis and humankind is searching for its next class of leaders. But how do we cultivate powerful, empathetic activists? Meet Seane Corn, co-founder of Off the Mat, Into the World, and an advocate for turning inward as the first step in reaching out. For more than a decade Seane has been leading workshops connecting practices such as yoga and meditation with effective leadership. Now she is also teaching a new Commune course, "Redefining Leadership," on onecommune.com.

FULL TRANSCRIPT

Jeff: You've developed a lot of thinking around leadership so I'd start with the basic question of what are the essential characteristics of great leadership?

Seane: I think that leadership should never be kind of mulled down to a specific common denominator because then that will eliminate so many people from feeling as if they have the ability or the skills to be able to be effective in their leadership because they're not this one thing.
