On Feb 7th, I launched The Changemaker Sessions with the theme of “Getting Out of Robot Mode“!
With our world in such an urgent state of trouble, our kneejerk reaction, as people trying to create change, can be to go into pure autopilot in an effort to buckle down and get things done as efficiently as possible.
Unfortunately, this robot mode of constant computing and doing comes at the expense of being connected to our bodies and feelings. We’re so busy managing our lives, we lose the ability to feel our lives.
Why robot-mode is such a HUGE problem…
To be a successful and enduring changemaker, we need to feel inspired, creative, passionate, and compassionate… much of which isn’t accessible if you’re just a walking head. :p
In this first session, we explored why being present and embodied is so integral for activists, social entrepreneurs, mission-driven leaders, or anyone trying to make this world a better place.
This is an area where I constantly have to stay vigilant, so this theme is really fresh and present for me.
Getting out of auto-pilot requires consistent tools
Also, in the session, I shared simple techniques, that I practice myself and teach my coachees, for getting out of the head and into the power of the body, what to do with the pain or overwhelm you might find there, and how to let your body become one of the biggest assets in your important work.
One of my favourite things is gathering compassionate peeps together for soulful learning and sharing, so I hope you’ll join me in upcoming get-togethers.
