The Concentric Circles of My World – Guest Post by Henry Kimsey-House

My world is configured in concentric circles of consciousness and responsibility. In any given moment, I am choosing what to pay attention to, what gets the brightest light focused on it, which circle is calling for action and which circle is planning the next leap. At the center of these circles is mySelf, the solid core of spirit or soul or purpose that connects me to the universe and all off life, that one that knows and teaches all the other circles what’s up, while at the same time being completely patient and benevolent. This I Am...

Leadership and the Wisdom of the Body

Posted by on Jul 1, 2013 in Motivation | 2 comments

Leaders who are working to change a habit or improve interactions with people, or otherwise develop leadership capacities must do more than read a book. Change is a mind/body experience. Most people who want to change take the cognitive approach; they plan and reframe thoughts to stimulate action, but there is another, often overlooked, approach called somatic training that provides a powerful access to change. The word somatic simply refers to the body.  Somatic leadership training is based the principle of mind/body integration. Mind/body...

What Howls in the Middle of the Night?: Our Perceptual Filters

I remember a cool summer night in my hometown on the North Shore of Lake Superior. My brother and sister and our families were visiting my parents, and were sharing old memories until well past midnight when we heard a very strange noise. It was so strange, in fact, that we were all startled out of our easy conversation. I remember feeling alarmed, and then one-by-one we retired for the evening. After everyone turned in, I even locked the door–something we never did in our small, sleepy town. The next morning, while enjoying my mother’s...

Butterflies and Asteroids: Your Transformative Presence

We may set our sights on transforming the world, but in truth, we are always a transformative presence in the world. Whether aware of it or not, even the smallest act has an impact. From a first “good morning” to a family member or seemingly mundane activities in your work, it all matters. It all counts, and it all transforms. The famous idea in chaos theory, the butterfly effect, provides an example of the transformative power of living organisms. In the hypothetical example, the course and power of a hurricane is impacted by a butterfly...

Finding Aliveness: Dancing in the Garden House

There are times in life when I feel totally and completely alive. The forces that create body-mind synergy align, and total joy emerges.  I experienced this recently when composing a creative project while sitting near the fireplace on a wintry Minnesota day. I was recovering from routine surgery that had resulted in life-threatening complications, and more surgeries.  I left the hospital so weak I could barely walk. But the warm fire, beautiful snowflakes, hot chocolate with whipped cream, and the joy of being with my family created a...

Changing Habits: Horses, Bayonets and Five Easy Steps

You swore you would change. It would be different this time. You even wrote down a plan. In five easy steps you would abandon your old habit forever, and you would experience a new freedom and success.  Wow! Were you ever excited! The only problem is, it didn’t work. You soon got off track and left your five-step plan in the dust. And you ended up in total breakdown, at least in this one area of your life.  How could this keep happening to you? Are you simply destined to fail? Past performance is not your destiny. Thousands of people...

The Summer of ’86, Structures, Breakthroughs

Posted by on Mar 20, 2012 in Blog, Motivation, Welcome | 0 comments

I bought my first car for $150.00 in 1986. I remember feeling happy that despite a large hole under the gas pedal (nicely covered by sturdy mats), the car had a great stereo. Looking at the car from the back, it definitely leaned to one side. I was never sure what the lean was all about, although a few people warned me the car might not be too safe. I took my chances. Overall the car was pretty good to me for a while, except for the muffler which fell with a clunk in the dormitory parking lot. After trying unsuccessfully to convince a few...

Goal Implementation Intentions

Goal Implementation Intentions

Won’t it be great at the end of the year when you can say you did what you said you were going to do? One way to increase the odds that you will follow through with your diet and exercise plans is to set what researchers call implementation intentions. An implementation intention is simply an if-then statement outlining how you will deal with an obstacle. The best way to set implementation intentions for diet and exercise is to identify why you engage in an undesired behavior (the obstacle) and have a substitute behavior in mind. Let’s...
