"We cannot rehearse for the unknown but what we can rehearse is how we are together, and how we prepare our communities to be together" - Margaret Wheatley
Over recent months, I have found myself at times numbing out and other times rushing forward as if I could fix everything for everyone. I have meditated and walked in nature, cried, sung and prayed for our whole human family. After months of disruption, it may be that we are even now still discovering how to arrive back to ourselves. Just to be fully present in the midst of all that is happening is an accomplishment. It takes devotion to be present with what is, whatever it is - especially when it is our own unrest.
I am humbled;
Not knowing what it's like to be a nurse on the front lines
Or a family who lost income with no end in sight.
My heart goes out to the many people who are struggling, especially those who have lost loved ones without warning, those who have lost their whole livelihood, and people who are suddenly trying to homeschool children without support. I am concerned about the increasing disparities of health, liberty, and justice that are occurring on a daily basis. I am also aware of the beautiful elements of the human spirit that are arising up and through these times. I am inspired by the creative art, collective imagination, and emergent wisdom that is showing up everywhere I look.
If you are like me, you are probably curious how we could emerge from this circumstance and create a better world than the one we have been living in. Beyond the present challenges there is a wider, clearer perspective; an opportunity to go forward from here. This begins with us coming together to hold the questions that matter. I am creating a space to do exactly that. I invite you to join an emergent online space, a circle of people who are dedicated to community resilience. It begins June 12th. Message me if you would like to find out more.

Creeks, rivers, waterfalls, mountains, birds, trees... and a morning wake up call from a California Black bear. 🐻🏔🌊🌲🌞🐦 My spirit feels renewed by the co-existence of mystery, love, fear and wonder. opportunities to get closer to source not as a form of “escapism” or “bypassing” but a means of cultivating #resilience .
Grateful for the immeasurable beauty of Mt. Shasta.
Thank you for the lovely stay, @mount_shasta_retreat_center. ☺️ Visit this majestic place, y’all. You have plenty of space to practice social distancing 🤍🌿

Winner of the 2020 Coretta Scott King Illustrator Award
The Newbery Award-winning author of THE CROSSOVER pens an ode to black American triumph and tribulation, with art from a two-time Caldecott Honoree.
This poem is a love letter to black life in the United States. It highlights the unspeakable trauma of slavery, the faith and fire of the civil rights movement, and the grit, passion, and perseverance of some of the world's greatest heroes.
The text is also peppered with references to the words of Martin Luther King, Jr., Langston Hughes, Gwendolyn Brooks, and others, offering deeper insights into the accomplishments of the past, while bringing stark attention to the endurance and spirit of those surviving and thriving in the present.
Robust back matter at the end provides valuable historical context and additional detail for those wishing to learn more.
I promise I will fight to bring back the New York I love. This fight ain’t over. And I ain’t quittin. It’s gonna take a lot more than what’s already been thrown at me to stop me from rising again. Let’s go New York. WE GOT THIS. Just another mountain to climb. #perseverance#resilience#fortitude#cantstopwontstop#strong

There is a story about this lilac tree🌳. I think it's worth telling... 9 years ago when I built the addition on my home there was a massive lilac tree in front of the gate to the back yard that was overladen with lilacs every spring filling our home with their sweet aroma. It had to be dug up so that the machinery could get into my back yard for the construction of the addition. I was sad about it. It never grew back.
Fast forward 9 years later and to my surprise in a very awkward location- at my fence line and in the flower garden by the stone patio there was a tree growing. A tree growing with purple buds. There is no doubt in my mind that the 100 year old root system of the original lilac tree found its way there after 9 years!
One word ...resilient.
I don't have the heart to remove this tree. It has proven it's resiliency and it took 9 long years to find it's way to grow above the ground! I'm looking forward to enjoying its beauty in the years to come. #resilience #lilac #wherethereisawillthereisaway #lookforthebeauty #momof4

We're not done until we are incapable of continuing.
Take some pressure off of yourself. To-do lists or wish lists are meant to help you, not make you a slave to them. Work at a pace that feels good for you - check in with yourself to see - everyone’s pace is different.
My pretty girl had an adventurous day. She took a lot of naps - but also explored the back yard and house longer than usual. At 15, she has lost most of her sight - but still has her spunk. We’ve been through some rough times with her collapsed trachea and diminishing eyesight - but I admire Chloe’s resilience.
Chloe has been in my life for 11 of her 15 years. I adopted her when she was 4. She’s had various health challenges all her life - but boy do I love her strength. It’s hard seeing her change and not be as crazy and funny as before - but I love her regardless. She trusts me and that’s all that matters. 💖✨ I’m also thankful for @rootsvet Dr. Lassin for guiding and supporting me with Chloe’s health. You’ve seen me at my most vulnerable with both my geriatric furkids - but have been amazing with supporting their health. It’s been a long journey- but so grateful. Thank you. 🐶

Cheers to almost 3 months of getting by while just trying to get by! Thanks to all of my clients and friends for the daily online training sessions, the hard outdoor workouts, and the zoom meetings with much needed drinks 🍻 I can honestly say that seeing you sweat on a computer screen, or from a distance in person, has gotten me through what is normally a crazy busy time in the training studio. We’re almost on the other side of this...and I can’t wait to have a beer at a Banff restaurant again this weekend ❤️💪🏼 #perserverance#motivation#fitness#thankful#cheers#calgary#dedication#SHR#strength#health#resilience
Even the wisest among us are simply children in pursuit of Truth.

With the devastating cost of natural disasters to human life, economies, the #environment and built #infrastructure , investing in #resilience is an urgent need. Building resilient infrastructure protects lives and livelihoods and helps to secure the post-disaster economy. Our Jeffrey Fraser and Darren Paul explain why investigating and understanding the natural hazards that could affect new or existing infrastructure is more than strategic; it is essential to assessing and managing risk golder.com/insights
✨✨Emotional Connection ✨✨ “The biggest resource for human beings is to have emotional connection with other people” -EMC leadership
Our biggest resource is having emotional connection. It’s good for our health and mental health. Emotional connection is the key to healthy relationships at home and at work. It’s not easy for everyone to create and it is a skill that can be learned.
I’ve seen it with couples in my private practice and when I was in HR advising leaders to enhance engagement.
Being part of a connected community is your biggest resource at this time.
This morning my husband made his coffee in a Miss Fun cup and after heckling him over what activities “Miss Fun” might be entertaining us with today I went to make my own fun.
Like many leaders I work really hard...and how I find the energy to do it, day after day and week after week, is to make sure I’m making time for fun. This morning it was playing with my shadow (it’s the small things)! 🥳 How have you found your fun this week?

Feedback from my MindScape virtual class has been glowing:⠀
💬 "The entire 2 day workshop was SUPER!. The way the content was presented, the guided journey into the Alpha state and your stories👍!⠀
I've taken this class with 3 other teachers, and I enjoyed this class best! I am going to use MindScape to heal myself of my past & present issues; and also communicate with family members for more harmonious relationships".⠀
- Anita, Hong Kong⠀
💬 "I was so blown away from the MindScape practices and my new abilities! ⠀
I will use MindScape to help in making decisions with my children, my health, my future, which path I should take for career... travel etc.⠀
I would recommend Daphne not only as a Mindscape coach but also a personal coach. ⠀
I feel that your energy is authentic and I truly loved everything about the course!"⠀
- Kristal, U.S.A.⠀
💬 "In this workshop with Daphne, I realised my logical brain frequently wants to place its idealistic standards on the creative brain.⠀
Now I am more able to let go and play a little more in (and with) life, to see and experience life from different perspective.⠀
Life is more juicy when less bounded by logic.⠀
Love Daphne! She selflessly shares her experiences, friendly and approachable, while maintaining a hight level of professionalism."⠀

How failure can be your greatest opportunity for success.
Join me as I connect with an amazing catalyst for inspiring the impossible and making it possible, the co-CEO of @singularityuaustralia and director of UtopiaX, @christina_gerakiteys .
Christina’s mission is to empower and inspire leaders to use exponential technologies to solve humanity's biggest and grandest challenges with a purpose to facilitate the road to Utopic society by opening the hearts and minds to unlimited potential.
Uncertainty, doubt and fear - these are the factors that hinder us from moving forward to our success, especially in this pandemic.
So many are stuck in this constant self-questioning without even taking action to make things happen.
We discuss how to pivot your way and turn things to get better results when you’re facing crisis, problems or challenges in your life.
Christina shares how those hardships and trials she experienced have made her who she is today.
You can get through all these fear-factors if you balance everything, taking one step at a time, walk your talk and live in the moment - have that faith in yourself that you can do it, because you can.
Christina believes that if all of us collaborate and join forces together, we can have this life that's built on the pillars of respect, love and hope.
Christina’s advice, “If you want something, go out and make it happen. Look at all the opportunities that you’ll miss out if you don’t take action now.”
Resilience is putting yourself in as many positions with something great that can happen. And if you put in yourself enough of those positions, something's going to pay off.

⚽️How's this for strength & stability! @bbchino91's football/soccer season had unfortunately been postponed, & we'd just completed 10wks of nicely laid out pre-season training. But in this we both saw obvious opportunity!🔥 More pre-season it is! More time to build robust armour, mental resilience, athletic performance, routine & avoiding deconditioning. ---
⚽️She's currently in the latter half of a hypertrophy phase w some GPP (wk15; just completed power phase). She has worked up to these (2 examples of, as #3 part of a sequence) more advanced exercises, challenging:
✔shoulder stability & strength ✔abdominal endurance
✔posterior chain strength & endurance ---
Training resumes soon so we must cater for the additonal volume, load & fatigue when going into the next mesocycle. Exciting times, Quadzilla! 💪💪
ANXIETY | No-one can tell you, you shouldn't be hurting when you are | Only you can validate it with? 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼
A CAUSE for stress in the body is hidden hurt, swallowed hurt, unvalidated hurt, pushed away hurt, someone asking you "how long will this take?" "you should be over this now" Or YOU telling yourself, "don't be silly" "you shouldn't be feeling like this" "there must be something wrong with me".
We need to validate when something has hurt us.
We need to allow E-motion to flow through us & not to block it.
We need to allow ourselves as much time as needed.
We need to accept hurt & emotions are normal, when we allow them they pass.
WHEN we don't. It's Doesn't go anywhere, we take it with us into our present & future, perceiving similar situations in the same way getting very upset over small things, it's the same hurt. Unaware that a low immune system, getting I'll at the slightest moment. Eczema, itching, etc can be caused by unprocessed stress in the body.
HOW TO PROCESS
You may be waiting for someone to notice you're hurting. It may never happen, you don't have to wait, to validate what you felt or are feeling. You can do it.
Start writing about times you have felt hurt. Get honest, let it out..you validate it," I felt it I honour how I felt".
SELF talk, notice if you are the one stopping hurt, swallowing hurt. Not allowing yourself. Why? Where did you learn that? If you learnt it, it's an opinion, it's a learnt way you tried to cope before but not a helpful one, It's ok to cry. You're always enough, it doesn't make you anything but human.
THERE'S not always a right time & place when you do feel emotional, that's fine, you do not have to show people how you hurt. When you do get home & get an hour to yourself, put on a sad film, listen to a sad song. Let it. Out.
It's also good to talk to someone you feel you can trust.
Helps release stress
Helps with overwhelm
Honours your human needs
