Episode 19: Connecting With Nature in a Virtual World
Have you ever had the experience of being completely stuck on a problem, only to walk outside and have the answer immediately pop into your head? Have you ever laid in bed, stressed about something to the point of sleeplessness, only to wake up with complete clarity? Nature and rest are an incredible, inspiring duo. For Jon Cass, Digital Fundraising and Marketing Strategist of World Wildlife Fund, the importance of nature has never been more clear. At a time when everything feels topsy turvy, he wanted to help people experience the healing power of nature while creating a new way forward for a more balanced world. On today’s episode of Plenty for Everyone we meet with one of our favorite conscious leaders and clients, Jon Cass, to discuss how rest and nature helped him to open up to what’s possible, transcend our new virtual world, and make decisions that are congruent to the mission of WWF.

Looking For The Lotus
Renowned monk Thich Nhat Hanh has famously written, "No mud, no lotus" – the idea that suffering is inherent in each of our lives, and that we can transform that suffering into something helpful and even hopeful.

It's one of our deepest conversations yet – an hour that left all of us awakened, energized, and yes, transformed.

Distilling Conscious Leadership
Distillation is a process that takes us from complexity to simplicity – discovering the true essence in form. For one of our favorite clients, Beam Suntory, distillation isn't just a metaphor. It's the core of their entire business. In business and in life, there is power in slowing down and getting to the essence of our purpose, our strategy, and our goals. When we slow down to reduce the noise and boil down the complexities, we unlock something more concentrated and more focused. Being patient isn't doing nothing. In fact, having patience is an active stage of the distillation process. Join us as we distill conscious leadership and get to the heart of strategy with Andrew Mondzelewski, North American Marketing Director for House of Suntory.

Now more than ever, we need leaders at all levels of society and in every corner of community. We need people who will help us find commonalities, common ground, and consensus. That means allowing ourselves to see the world along multiple dimensions, understanding the power to choose our own viewpoints, and being willing to envision – and work – to manifest something better than what we can see. Join as we explore what it means to be an active leader in the political process and what we believe is being called forth from each of us this fall.

When you are on a river - you can't control the current. Instead of working against it, you have the ability to follow its flow. Notice the forces in your life - at home, in relationship, or at work - where are you meeting resistance and where can you realign yourself to find ease? Our society teaches us that you have to push to prove. What if we let go and flow with the current? Although it's contradictory to what we are taught, nature has grand lessons for us if we attune ourselves to them. Join us for this flowing conversation about how the current is taking us to the places we are meant to go.

From Know-it-osity to Curiosity
Living can be noisy, especially when we are busy. What if we slowed down enough to see the invitation on offer that lives beyond the noise?

We each hold the power to create the parameters of our lives. When life gets busy and crowded, it can often feel impossible to take a break - yet space doesn’t happen until you create it.

Adjusting Your Aperture
Our minds operate much like the aperture of a camera. When the aperture is open, our focus is broad and wide. When the aperture is small, our focus is fixed and constrained. Adjusting our own aperture shapes our ability to see more. And when we see more, we become more of who we really are. Tune into this powerful, uplifting, and juicy conversation with coach and mentor, Barbara Patterson, as we explore the possibilities that emerge when we choose to open our aperture - to be more open, hopeful, resilient, and awake.
