This is a pivotal moment of truth for us and our planet. How can you be a more powerful leader, especially in such a difficult time? Today’s guest, Terry Patten, a highly acclaimed teacher and author of A New Republic of the Heart, is here to help you use this moment of extreme urgency to evoke your highest character and values.
This is a pivotal moment of truth for our species. In addition to your own personal struggles, we are on the brink of some serious crises that are affecting us collectively.
It’s normal to need guidance and support these days, to avoid becoming disheartened and pessimistic, and to make choices about where to invest our time, money and consciousness.
For this week’s podcast I brought in Terry Patten, a visionary and teacher who has worked with many of the worlds’ greatest wisdom teachers. He is also a philosopher, author, activist, social entrepreneur, consultant and coach! He, more than almost anyone I know, has his finger on the pulse of humanity’s fate.
- How to use this moment of extreme urgency to evoke our highest character and values
- A new form of spiritual activism / activist spirituality
- The power of a “no-matter-what commitment” to resolve dilemmas
- The path to move beyond postmodern alienation and transcend superficiality
- The new level of transformation and creativity it will take to be effective agents of change
Listen to this important conversation to understand how you can contribute to the betterment of our world, rather than sitting back and hoping for the best!
“Whether or not our fate is destruction,” Terry says, “how your soul responds is of significance!”
Leadership is needed more than ever these days, everywhere from your work to your love life. When you’re done with this one, check out this podcast on How to be an Effective Leader with a Powerful Impact with Mark Nicolson.
