I’m up past 3 a.m. writing this because it’s quite important….
I don’t really think I’m being dramatic by saying the degree to which our consciousness is changed is the degree to which we can make a greater difference.
It means we can build our own capacity for an even larger voice, a bigger platform and for how we show up for those we lead.
And with our own greater consciousness, it’s easy to see the massive ripples that would occur as a byproduct – the impact on the people we serve and even potentially back to our industries and perhaps even the business community as a whole.
Deepak Chopra says, “Consciousness is the potential for all creation. The more consciousness you have, the more potential you have to create. Every thought, word and action is a divine expression of the universe.”
It’s time for us to wake up and step fully into our accelerated entrepreneurial evolution.
Maverick has always been about something greater. It’s not just another “mastermind” or group. And coming together to share new ideas, strategies, and resources; inspiring each other; and even joining up with new business deals is good – but it’s even more interesting how we can help “nudge” each other’s conscious evolution…
So much of the time we’re holding “space” for the people we serve. However, where do we go when we need that for ourselves? Who helps the helpers? Where are the sacred spaces for us to open up, be vulnerable, and do the deep soul work we need to do as leaders?
Get ready! During our time together we’re going to go deep and fast here by…
Re-Connecting to Indigenous
Wisdom, Ceremony and Ritual
Set on and around sacred, enchanting land in New Mexico this transformative experience will build the bridge to merge this indigenous wisdom into our modern world of business and commerce.
We’ll also have special guests join us to go deeper and explore the traditional indigenous shamanic and healing work.
It takes quite a long time to gain the trust of these teachers, and they are coming to facilitate the ceremonies and rituals with one condition….
They have assured me they will share their wisdom here in the enchanted high desert only if it is to be in service of the Earth at this important choice point in our history. It will become your role to help use the leverage of business to make a difference in the world. That’s some of the most exciting and exhilarating work I continue to do. Hope you’ll join me here on this continued journey together.
Truly what serves the collective serves you.
Featured Guest, Pat McCabe, will be helping lead our You’volution Retreat throughout the 3 days.
Also known as Woman Stands Shining, Pat is a Dine’ (Navajo) mother, grandmother, activist, artist, writer, ceremonial leader and international speaker. She is a voice for global peace and global healing. Pat is a beautiful bridge between the ancient & modern world and bridging the sacred masculine and feminine in business (regardless of your gender).
Pat is excited to lead multiple sacred ceremonies with our group over the 3 days. This will be a totally authentic way to connect to the deep indigenous wisdom that serves all of life. There’s a hunger for this kind of indigenous connection because of what’s going on in our world right now. She asked me not to publicize exactly what we are doing because they are so sacred so I cannot reveal more but I promise you’ll walk away deeply transformed.
Pat told me there is a calling she’s hearing for all of us to see your skillset from a different vantage… to utilize all your talents and resources to co-create a thriving world in alignment with indigenous perspective.
Panache Desai is another special guest. Panache was recently picked by Oprah for her Super Soul Sunday program because he’s an incredible teacher on personal evolution…human potential…and accessing your greatest life.
He counts Deepak Chopra among his closest friends, and he’s been featured on Dr. Oz, the Huffington Post, and The Good Life Project.
Panache helps leaders go from anxiety to alignment…alienation to authenticity and replace apathy with action. He helps them to find the peace, balance, and fulfillment we all want within ourselves.
Not only is Panache an incredible person coming to teach and share, but he’s also there with us to learn and grow. It’s going to be really special.
What’s more, I’ll personally be facilitating sessions and discussions around a few topics from my own evolutionary journey:
Examining the “Shadow Side” of Your Gifts and Talents
Mapping Your Mythic Hero’s Journey
Living Your Legendary Legacy and more...
If I know you, you’ve already accomplished a lot.
But perhaps, like me, you also have a nagging notion you can’t shake that you were designed for even greater things. You want to fully put ALL your talents, passion, and resources into something bigger.
I call it the “Cosmic Alarm Clock.”
There seems to be a divine timing to every level of awakening, and everybody goes through it on their own schedule and in their own way. You can’t hurry it.
Fact is, we can either resist this “cosmic alarm clock” or lean into and embrace the transition into something bigger and better.
You probably hear it already or else you wouldn’t be intrigued by this work.
Lately I’m seeing a lot of Maverick members and colleagues in a state of transition. Maybe it’s because I’ve personally done this and come out on the other side that I’m seeing it more and more—but I’m not so sure. It truly feels like accomplished entrepreneurs want to know “What’s next?”
The same thing that got you where you are now won’t necessarily get you to the next destination on your journey. The only way to grow is to continually express your deepest essence of your greatest gifts.
And that’s what we’ll do here, together.
All the best,
P.S. On my 43rd birthday, I was en route to take part in the Virgin Strive Challenge triathlon in Sicily. I had never done anything like this, but it was a great birthday challenge.
I flew overnight to Heathrow and arrived in the UK on my actual birthday. I decided I’d spend the day in Avebury, one of the oldest and most sacred stone circle sites. After an incredibly powerful day there, I came back to my hotel but just couldn’t fall asleep. I saw the minutes ticking away as I had a 4 a.m. flight out to make the first leg of the triathlon.
Finally, I gave up on sleeping and meditated instead. Afterward, I wrote this in my journal as part of my real work:
“…bringing together others (catalyze the catalysts) is my path. I am blueprinted to do this and it is all I want to do with the highest expression of the Ecoverse. It only requires my full commitment, effortless effort – embrace and totally accept I am destined for this. Not in an ego way but as fulfilling for the greatest service to the collective, the individual byproducts are immense…”
And then using my left hand (your non-dominant hand taps into your own higher wisdom), I wrote this even deeper message:
