This Portals conversation continues our discovery of new intelligence and awareness emerging through the people we describe as next-generation leaders, the men and women who are the new entrepreneurs and pioneers in social, developmental and spiritual change.
We’re talking today with Tucker Walsh, an Emmy Award-winning documentary director and photojournalist who has collaborated with many of the world’s leading thinkers and doers and most iconic brands. As Tucker reached the highest levels of career and personal success, he felt what he describes as an underlying sense of "there's something wrong with me." The happiness and satisfaction he expected with fulfilling his life’s ambitions were missing.
Tucker then embarked on a journey of discovery, still ongoing, that led him to the profound realization that even in the darkest of times, he is, and always has been, exactly where he needs to be in a life-long journey of growth and expanding awareness. Tucker describes the practices and beliefs that give him the faith and trust to face any risks and fears with a deep sense of inner guidance and wellbeing in his still unfolding life of transformation.
I felt like it was this new me showing up in the world, and I was doing things I had never done before, like dancing like a crazy person, like I had never danced before. I would spend most of my life trying not to be seen and blending into the background, and all of a sudden I wanted to just fully express myself in new ways. When I come home to this feeling that on a deeper level, on a more spiritual level, everything is perfect, it allows me to show up in the world in a way that is coming from a place of love, because it's coming from a place of gratitude and acceptance. It's coming from a place of celebrating what is.
