In today's video, I wanted to share with you a little more about what aliveness means to me:
For the rest of the weekend, I'll be attending the Academy for Leaders, a retreat program from the Center for Courage and Renewal which was founded by Parker Palmer.

I have been profoundly moved and guided by his wisdom and encourage you to explore his writings and contributions both on the Center's website, as well as his columns for On Being. I am profoundly grateful for this opportunity to continue exploring my own wholeness.
I'd love to hear what aliveness means to you! Let me know in the comments below.
