This is a beautiful blend of vision and trust in uncertainty. These programs focus on the future and developing skillsets for your next season of life. We often get caught up in the concept that professional development is for the present moment, this is about anticipating the growth needed for the future. This development is also about removing obstacles often triggered by our emotional response to the unknown.
Inspired by the Element of Water
Water is The Most Yin
It is everywhere, but has no shape, taking only the form given by containers, river banks and beds of the oceans. Although it is the softest of substances, it can wear away the hardest rock and move around any obstacle to penetrate beyond. It appears both as a solid and as a gas.
Aging is Partly a Drying Up Process
As people age their bodies become dryer, their hair more brittle, their skin withered and their movements less smooth. Their minds lose flexibility. They have difficulty with new information and accepting changes in the world around them. Aging is partly a drying up process, a sign that the Water is weakening and that we are losing our reserves. In spite of Water's flexibility, when it is constrained and not moving, toxins develop and function is diminished.
Water Has The Capacity to Cause Havoc
People who have experienced flooding or powerful waves understand how water can penetrate and sweep away all that lies in its path. After the initial surge, flood water will often become stagnant. Disease and pollution follow, resulting in illness. At the other extreme a drought can be just as devastating. Climatic changes can leave a degree of dryness that inhibits crops, resulting in famine.
