“Leading with Purpose – A Program for Holistic Leadership Development”

Dear Genuine Contact friends,

We are excited to announce that we will be launching “Leading with Purpose – A Program for Holistic Leadership Development” this Sept 21-24, 2009 in Virginia Beach.

Over the last year Michelle Cooper, Marquis Bureau, Donna Clark and Rachel de Assuncao have been working together offering the Genuine Contact trainings in Canada. We are now in the process of developing an advanced leadership development program and want to offer our first workshop during our annual GC fall gathering. We want to use this as an opportunity to get feedback on the content and design of this program from Genuine Contact professionals and others who may have not taken any of the Genuine Contact program. Our intention is to share the resulting design with GC trainers as Foundations 4 of the Genuine Contact Program.

While there are many details to finalize we are committing to the delivery of the program Sept 21 -24 and we will be making it available at a price that is very accessible and developed to cover our costs for space, meals and materials for the training. Since many of you are in the process of making your plans for 2009 including travel to the GC International Mentoring Circle, we wanted to give you a heads up so you can book your travel to take advantage of this opportunity. Why not come on a bit early and participate in this program, contribute to the evolution of the product and add this new program to your own offerings in the year ahead?

If you are interested please let Rachel know at rachel@musango.ca so that we can contact you with further details. We’ll provide further detail to the list by mid-February and hope that many of you can join us!

Hope is a light we keep inside that no one can touch. (Jermaine J. Evans)

Hope is a belief in a positive outcome related to events and circumstances in one's life. Hope is the feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out for the best. [1] To hope is to wish for something with the expectation of the wish being fulfilled, a key condition in unrequited love. [2] Hopefulness is somewhat different from optimism in that hope is an emotional state, whereas optimism is a conclusion reached through a deliberate thought pattern that leads to a positive attitude.

Focusing on Intentions

You are invited to join an international circle of folks who are going to spend some time on Monday, January 19th focusing on their intentions for the coming year. 

This event grew out of guidance that manifestation happens when we open space for ourselves, with intention and desire.  Intention is the masculine, yang energy that moves things forward.  Desire is the feminine, yin energy that draws things in.  When balanced in the heart with love, they form a bright magnetic core that becomes a touchstone for our own choices and an attractor for what we need in order to have the life we want.

A key understanding is that if we have denials present, whether we are conscious of them or not, we need to clear these first.  And so sometimes what we attract is the reflection that will help us clear our denials, in order to manifest our heart’s desire, rather than our heart’s desire itself.  But if we pay attention and allow ourselves to express our emotional response to what comes forward for clearing, we will achieve the healing our innermost self is seeking by drawing these reflections in the first place.

All that you need to do to participate is to set some time, even a few moments, to feel into your desire, and formally express your intent, in whatever way feels good to you.

With healing intent,
