Updating Leadership

We have a major crisis of leadership on the planet today.

While issues of a global scale increasingly demand our attention, our leaders inhabit a tribal consciousness.

In the UK, where I come from, there is such an intense level of political distrust and apathy that in many circles, anyone who even considers entering into political leadership is deemed to surely have some major ego-driven shadow and personality flaws.

For many, the very term ‘leadership’, has associations with being ego-driven, immaturely masculine, body rejecting, hierarchical, dog eat dog…

I’m done with this. I’m pretty confident you are too…

How about we start to dream a different reality?

What would be the impact of leaders coming forth whose hearts were on fire for the one tribe of humanity and the earth as a whole, rather than their own political, religious or economic agenda?

What would be the impact of leaders coming forth who are radically alive rather than depressingly dead?

What would be the impact of leaders coming forth on a solid foundation of shadow work, soul work, purpose work, bodywork, trauma healing, emotional work, mindfulness, and tantric training?

What would be the impact today if leaders came forth who embodied such a depth of human maturity that they had integrated the different polarities of our being that are the usual fault lines of immature conflict – masculine / feminine, mind / body, purpose / sexuality, as well as the different cultures and generations of our single humanity – into a single, integrated expression of power, love and catalytic service?

What would be the impact of leaders coming forth who don’t see vulnerability as weakness but rather as power – as a strength of human nature that profoundly connects us, breaks down the walls of walls of separation, and opens our shared hearts to each other?

What would be the impact of leaders coming forth whose agenda is clearly, obviously, and unmistakably love? Who value integrity above everything else? Whose leadership is an embodiment of their soul and electric transmission from their body?

What would be the impact of leaders coming forth whose motivation to lead could be genuinely trusted because they have offered themselves up to be penetrated and opened by the Power of the One so fully that their very self has been burned through at its innermost core?

What would be the impact of leaders coming forth who hold and wield power from a place where they know that it is not, never has been, and never will be ‘their’ power. Rather, what if they got it is the power of the One that thunders through the hearts, bodies and souls of those who offer themselves up in the greatest act of surrender, giving everything to the Fire of Life to burn through them in service of the whole?

My work and events are part of this update. It’s time. Are you part of this change?
