New ideas are priceless

Apr 27, 2021

New ideas are priceless and fragile at the same time.  They must be handled with care or they will implode, never to be seen again.  Who we share new ideas with is important during the initial stages. 

Hold your idea close to your chest.  Let it take form and then reconfigure itself.  Give it permission to arise out of the ashes, the swamps, the fresh waters, the blue skies of your imagination.

Ideas are alive.  The lifespan of an idea has to do with your willingness to explore, create and manifest it. 

As ideas accumulate, some are crossed off the list while others build momentum. Every idea is important as they are stepping stones to the ones that will live on to flourish.

Just like inner thoughts, ideas are impermanent. They come and go!

Right Speech is a critical prerequisite to helping all conversations in life unfold with clarity and understanding. I wish something like this were taught to all students in our early K-12. Just imagine how the world would improve!

I loved this course [The Art of Engaged Mindfulness]! It brought me strength, understanding and joy at getting to know myself in a different and more substantive way. I am already using my learning to be a better coach for my clients. My gratitude for this course overflows!

Right Speech is about listening with our whole beings. This class is about more than communication… it is about being in the world fully alive! Thank you!

[Right Speech] was a transformative class for me and Meg Hess was an inspiring and compassionate teacher. I have had an abiding interest in the notion of Right Speech, so I was looking forward to taking this class and curious about how it would unfold. It was very gratifying to see the teachings and practices we learned making a real impact on my listening skills, as well as on my responses to life circumstances and even world events. I am certainly taking away a wider scope of curiosity and the communication and listening tools to more effectively investigate that curiosity, which, in turn, expands the scope of my compassion.

Becoming a Mindfulness Coach: You and Your Clients helped me deepen my day-to-day mindfulness practice. Using the awareness practices and skills from class, I deepened my sense of how well my thoughts and actions reflect my values and I engaged in exercises and dialogue which supported me in making changes and living more fully in my integrity.
