"What if care is the organizing principle of our society? Care that is creative and tenacious, relentless and wholesome, abundant and kind. The kind of fierce love that helped us survive the pain, loss, and heartbreak of 2020" JM Wong
You are invited to join us for a 4-week course where we'll explore how compassion (for ourselves and others) is one of the best ways of dealing with challenging times, as well as a profound foundation for acting to create positive change. The paragons of humanity such as the historical Buddha, Christ, Martin Luther King Jr, Gandhi, and Mother Teresa, while imperfect, give us a model for cultivating compassion and other realizations for a conscious purpose-based life. As the Dalai Lama says: "If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion."
Being a Badass gives us the ability to cut through what gets in the way of our inspired action and enables us to stay the course through the ups and downs of creating meaningful change or birthing something new for ourselves, our family or community.
Each 90-minute session of the course will include time for discussion, as well as effective practices and strategies to support your journey to the fulfillment of a passion project, a dream or change in your life.
Session 1: The Power of Inspired Action – Being both a Buddha and a Badass and how do you access the power of this extraordinary path
Session 2: Rooted in the Heart (Courage) – Connecting deeply with your heart and purpose to discover and ignite your inspired role and greatest contribution
Session 3: Creating a Vision for Ourselves & Our Communities – Acting inspired by wisdom and compassion and supported by clarifying your vision
Session 4: Idea to Achievement – Exploring universal frameworks and strategies for realizing your dreams, mission, or vision.
Bonus: Complimentary 30-minute 1-on-1 Action Discovery session with Shadi to help you discover the most important action(s) for you to take for the fulfillment of your heart's desires in life, work or mission. Next step or first step, this free integration session will give you greater clarity and focus and help you develop your unique strategy for taking inspired action.
