Distinct from self-knowledge, self-awareness is the capacity to be present to your experience as it is occurring, and is your most powerful leverage for change and real response in the world.
CREATIVITY & INNOVATION
Knowledge comes from the mind. Wisdom arises from intuition. Increasing your access to intuitive wisdom impacts creativity and your capacity to innovate.
CLARITY OF MIND
Cultivating a state of awareness that is both fully relaxed and highly alert helps to bring greater clarity to all that you do. This, in turn, increases a sense of wellbeing.
The highest form of leadership emanates from conscious leadership, meaning moment to moment awareness. Contemplative practices help us come more fully into the present, unleashing fresh ways of perceiving, spontaneity, clarity, and a more consistent sense of well being. I work from the ground up, letting your specific context and truth inform me. Together, we listen both within and without, seeking clarity through direct apprehension.
It is a great honor to offer this work. — Jan Birchfield
