Fight or Flight? There’s actually a third response

We were in New York City last week and experienced an epiphany within our first hour of arrival. It happened on one of the city’s infamous subway trains. (If you’ve been following us for a while now, or have seen our videos, you know that most of our life-changing moments occur on trains around the world!) When we landed in JFK airport last Thursday morning, we were excited, relieved, joyous, and deeply grateful. This trip to NYC to attend our business mentor, Selena Soo’s “Get Known Get Clients Live” event was a homecoming we’ve been looking forward to for a … Read More

With all due respect to Uncle Ben…

Power. What does it bring forth in you? How do you relate to it? And why so? As we were writing this email to you, we spent an afternoon googling for the definition of “Power” and couldn’t find one that was even vaguely close to our #soultruth. From its connotation of control, politics, and manipulation… to Uncle Ben’s “With great power comes great responsibility” in Spider-Man… to buzz-phrases like: Claim Your Power, Step Into Your Power etc. … our stomachs felt like someone whammed us a sucker punch each time we finished reading a definition that just didn’t ring true. … Read More

10 Things We’re Celebrating in 2015

2015 has been an amazing year filled with celebratory moments. As we sat down and reflected on the lessons learnt, the love/work birthed, and the deep deep recognitions we connected with, we found a momentum driving us from one moment to the next: The truth of who we are becoming. It drove us to look beyond ourselves into the endless possibilities of creation, beyond the mould of what society makes of us and expects us to be. It drove us to look within ourselves and be curious of what we stand for. In that, we stepped into our fullness and … Read More

It’s my birthday today and…

That's me! Giving middle-schoolers taller than me high-fives after speaking to them at their Unity (Anti-Bullying Awareness) Week.

I’ve missed you. However our paths have crossed – through the interwebs, at an event, or even in a coffee shop – I’m grateful we met. Having spent the last 5+ years traveling the world – collecting, sharing, and inspiring stories dreams-come-true from the people we meet, I’ve come to know: [bctt tweet=”“Every encounter with each other is a reunion of souls.””] And my reunion with you has left a heart-print in my soul. I’ve spent the last year doing many wondrous things – speaking at amazing events, uplifting communities that have special spots in my heart, creating art that … Read More

3 things we learnt from our #BigMagic experience with Elizabeth Gilbert

#BigMagic by Elizabeth Gilbert

This Tuesday, we went to listen to best-selling author Elizabeth Gilbert speak about her latest book, “Big Magic” at the opening session of Seattle Arts and Lecture’s 2015 season. We were lucky enough to get tickets, and be 2 of the 2,500 sold-out crowd at Seattle’s Benaroya Hall. In addition to being in awe of how an author sold out an opening night (a rare incident!), we were deeply inspired by Elizabeth Gilbert’s message of courage, passion, and creativity. We laughed with her, we Amen-ed at her (very many) eloquent wisdom, and we awwww-ed at the humanity she highlighted in … Read More
