[Video] How to Survive and Save Yourself

‎When you feel cornered by life and feel scared or trapped, how do you meet yourself and make space for change. It’s almost impossible when you find the story is so big it has cornered you or is surrounding you.

What do you do when it feels like there is no way out…

This quote and poem are the framework for todays conversation…maybe you are also becoming more aware of the stories you are carrying and how they cause you to beat yourself up, point fingers, desire rescue and shrink. There is nothing more important that this self-awareness and the invitation to make more space for change.

“The most authentic thing about us is our capacity to create, to overcome, to endure, to transform, to love and to be greater than our suffering.”
-Ben Okri

The conversation turns to the power of uncovering, seeing and how expressive art, can illuminate what is active in life. Art and image is a mirror, it is also energy that allows os to see our stories. This approach to depth and discovery is a powerful tool of determining new direction and moving energy in a way that we can become our own support.

Love After Love

The time will come
when, with elation,
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror,
and each will smile at the other’s welcome,

and say, sit here. Eat.
You will love again the stranger who was your self.
Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart
to itself, to the stranger who has loved you

all your life, whom you ignored
for another, who knows you by heart.
Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,

the photographs, the desperate notes,
Peel your own image from the mirror.
Sit. Feast on your life.

– Derek Walcott
