2017. I remember the day Michael told me he wanted to organize Walkabout Now. His vision resonated a lot with what I do: help individuals, leaders and organizations become more conscious.
Fast forward to the end of 2018. We're catching up over lunch and I'm eating a delicious Phô when Michael tells me: "Remember Walkabout Now? It’s happening! Are you interested?" I felt a familiar warmth in my heart and I knew that was the answer, there was no need to think. Of course, I was in!
I guess the main reason is that I believe we need to raise our level of self-awareness. Most of us were never taught how to communicate, how to listen to our bodies, how to express our needs, how to set our boundaries or how to heal ourselves and that leads to a lot of suffering. In the workplace. At home. Within ourselves.
This need to grow and learn has become even more important as humanity is facing the biggest challenges of our time: our own survival.
But there is hope. I see more and more people around me who crave for more. More meaning. More impact. More fun. More love. They want a life worth living. Some give up. Some explore.
I chose to explore and all along this journey of self-discovery and growth I met fantastic people and received a lot from them. It’s time to give back and that's why I happily joined the team.
We need more events like Walkabout Now. Co-created. Emergent. Where everything is optional except respect, compassion and a desire to explore and grow. I’m grateful I was offered the opportunity to join such a wonderful team and I can’t wait to meet you on the island
