122: Manifest systemic change, starting with yourself with Rebecca Lefebvre
Episode 122. "It's not enough to just sit there and come to an awareness about it; you literally have to do something about it.” ~Rebecca Lefebvre After a year that’s spanned 42-odd months, the first episode of 2021 is a conversation steeped in practical magic, the kind that can recenter individuals and rehabilitate entire social structures. That’s a tall order, I know. Luckily, Rebecca Lefebvre BSW, BSN, RN is an expert with a gift for interpreting ancient tools and applying them to 21st-century challenges. As all those post-nominal letters indicate, Rebecca knows her way around modern systems: social work, science, graphic design, public policy, small business ownership. She understands what makes personal and public systems tick. And what has thrown so many of them out of whack. At Avec La Vie, her online shop, Rebecca curates a collection of products for conscious, purposeful living she created to restore individual operating systems. My favorite is her trio of lush, boxed card decks. With each nature-inspired deck, Rebecca gently ushers the querent through stages of contemplation, healing, and transformation. Collective Wisdom, the beautiful bi-monthly magazine that Rebecca began self-publishing in March of 2020, is another outlet for her interest in resetting our collective outlook. Each issue she says is a place where science and spirituality unite around insights, opportunities, and activities. Rebecca’s creative artistry and professional expertise are the perfect antidotes to the year that was. I’ve got my deck ready...
