Especially in a time of political and environmental upheaval, how do we discover and more fully engage with the real potential of personal and collective transformation? What is the nature of leadership in a transformational journey of people and communities whose vision is to co-create a positive, sustainable future for humanity and the planet?
In this conversation we get a deeper look at the kind of leadership that can facilitate emerging universal change and transformation. Aviv Shahar is joined by Geoff Fitch and Abigail Lynam, from Pacific Integral and Generating Transformative Change (GTC) North America. Jeff and Abigail recount their personal journeys of change and growth, and many years of leading the transformational experience of groups and individuals on three continents.
Among their insights and learnings:
- My greatest fear became my greatest opening.
- If we don't do anything, we don’t make mistakes. So the idea is to create more and better mistakes; new mistakes, rather than repeating the old ones.
- Humanity is in the midst of a profound period of change; the opportunity of our time requires us to embrace universal human values, ethical action, and engage our evolutionary potential.
- Unless we find a better way to engage generational resources, wisdom, and collaboration, our chances of meeting some of the difficult challenges are dramatically reduced.
- It’s how individuals can show up in the development of the collective; we can bring our greatest potential and fullest selves to hold a space of leadership for when it's our time.
- What makes this possible is we all have gifts and blind spots; we're all on our own evolutionary journey. We're whole and beautiful as we are – and we’re ready.
This conversation is part of the continuing Portals discovery into what is emerging on the frontiers of human experience in this time of profound change. Information about upcoming special events can be found on the Events page. Also visit and subscribe to our YouTube channel.
My wildest aspiration is that in humanity we discover a pathway to our own healing and awakening, and come into a healthy and whole relationship to each other, and to the natural world. Ultimately, that our presence here sanctifies this place, in reality becomes an expression of the sacred. And that's us.
