As this month’s full moon shines down and illuminates the valley that is my home here in Santa Fe, I’m thinking about deep change and transformation.
Over the past month, I’ve been supporting the 24 people who are going through “Fall in Love with Your Work.” One of the things I love about teaching this course is watching the transformations that unfold for participants on their way to create right livelihood.
When I first created the course, I didn’t anticipate the deep levels of change that people would go through – not all of those changes directly related to their work. Some of them ended relationships that no longer served them or their partners. Some started exciting new projects, like a meditation group for their local community. Some dove headlong into creative endeavors that they had been postponing for way too long.
I thought I was simply offering a course that might help people get closer to work they would love. But in the process, I started to get how much our work in the world is an expression of our soul. So of course it makes sense that by deeply connecting with our mission and purpose related to livelihood, we would experience a shift at a soul level as well.
Transformation is not about making superficial changes – it’s about radically altering something at a deep level. What makes transformation possible?
These are what I call the“3 Building Blocks of Transformation”…

Re-Connection and Renewal
Interested in bringing mindfulness into your workplace? Re-Connection and Renewal (R+R) workshops and retreats are designed to do just that. This past month, along with my friend and colleague Katya Lesher, I offered a one-day R+R retreat for staff of the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. Get in touch with me to learn more about how you can bring a custom-designed R+R to your group or organization.
