My recent workshop
I lead a lot of corporate workshops. Coaching. Meditation. Feng shui. The main points of them all is to have employees remember that they:
A. Have a choice in this world.
B. Should not surrender to a complacent lifestyle.
C. Work is only one part of the equation.
Last night, at Casper headquarters, I led a particularly powerful workshop called, The Retreat. It's a meditative journey of sound, silence, breath and intention.
The goals are the same as ABC above. But this one is more interactive. It's called the retreat because like any good retreat it focuses on slowly opening up areas of the mind and body that are usually shut down and hidden. How that affects work and life. And then ending on a powerful repositioning back into the world.
As we got to the sound part, I made people use their voice. And as it turns out, it was extremely difficult. Most people are not used to expressing an emotion, thought, or feeling with voice. It could be a sigh, a grunt, a howl, whatever. And several people struggled to find even a whisper.
I get it. It's not normal. But life is not normal. At least it's not supposed to be.
And as people let go more, they began to howl. Throwing their heads back and letting go. Voice! Sound! Air! Release! And that became the new normal.
And in the new normal people chose themselves.
Moral of the story, redefine normal if it ain't working for you. There truly are no rules to normal when you are going for Truth in your life.
