First it involves stripping back old ideas and beliefs. Beliefs that we’ve all internalised about masculine ways of doing and being. Ways that have been revered in so many parts of the world and which are actually deeply unhealthy. Out of balance. Destructive to our relationship with ourselves, our bodies, our communities, and to the planet.
After stripping back old notions of what leadership is supposed to look like, we’re able to open more fully into a leadership style that’s more balanced, humane, aligned and integrated. It’s a style of leadership that puts humanity ahead of progress. That values connection and community. That knows how to balance the needs of the individual with the needs of the collective.
Today I wanted to share one of those tools with our entire SOV community because it’s one that will benefit so many at this time. It’s the loving kindness meditation drawn from the Buddhist metta meditation practice.
This is something you can take anytime of the day or night. You could take it before starting your day or before going to bed. And if you’re having a challenging time with a loved one, a colleague, or a friend, it’s a great practice to take before interacting with them.
Remember, this is a practice, not a quick fix. You need to take it regularly over a month or more to really see shifts in your perspective and in your life.
