Learning to Be Brave. Conversations that Heal.

Posted by on 8:20 PM in Uncategorized | 1 comment

Like you, I imagine, I’ve been having conversations. Asking questions. Trying to understand. I’ve been saying that we need safe spaces where these conversations can be held, so the truth can emerge through our deeply socialized defenses. “Safe spaces for deep conversations are hard to come by.” So the other day, I was speaking with an amazingly smart and creative friend who told me that she doesn’t believe in safe spaces. Rather she said she believes in brave spaces. This got me to thinking… … about the difference between a safe space...

Black Men Speak: A Conversation for Humanity

When George Floyd was killed, people began hitting the streets in protest. And I started to stir from a long slumber – the sleepy comfort of not knowing what I did not know.  Perhaps like you, I started making phone calls, asking questions, having deep and sometimes difficult conversations with black friends around the world. Some of them challenged my good intentions: “The time for listening is over, Katherine. What are you going to do?” I started to study and learn. And I started to listen… to that deep knowing we...

Create a (r)evolution. Start with your own life.

“A riot is the language of the unheard.” – MLK There is a great deal of adrenalized action in the world today. It was inevitable. We will never have peace in our societies until all our voices can be heard, no matter how uncomfortable those voices make us. There is going to be anger. There is going to be error. There is going to be misunderstanding… because we have not been listening. There is growing evidence that the only way we will heal from an intolerable shared history is to sit down at the table and tell our stories and have them...

“Go to your room.” What Mother Nature Needs You to Think About Now.

Posted by on 12:13 AM in Uncategorized | Comments Off on “Go to your room.” What Mother Nature Needs You to Think About Now.

“That’s enough, children! Go to your rooms. And before you come out, I want you to think about what you’ve done to get here. Reflect on the consequences of your actions, and think about what you need to change to get along with each other. Is this really how you want to be?” This Sunday is Mother’s Day in the USA. And recently as I’ve reflected on our current circumstances, it’s all started to feel like it did when I was a child and things got a bit wild and I just wasn’t listening to my Mother. I’ve been having the sense...

The Life In Your Years: Making Meaning in Every Decade

Posted by on 7:01 AM in Success, Uncategorized | Comments Off on The Life In Your Years: Making Meaning in Every Decade

I’m just about to get on a plane after a week in Houston, Texas for my cousin’s 80th birthday. It’s the place where I was born, so I’m thinking a lot about my life to date. I’ve lived six decades so far, and I am moving deeper into my seventh. I hope I have many more, but nothing is certain.Each decade of life brings a developmental task we need to complete in order to move forward in our lives in strength. If any of these tasks are not achieved, we move forward in life socially, psychologically or emotionally crippled, with parts of...

This post was first published on March 15th, 2018. But as Money & Abundance have been our theme this past month in my mastermind group, I thought I'd bring it out to share with you here.

She is a master of Marketing knowledge, and we share common values for human beings and the planet. So we often talk about the intersection of money and meaningful...
