The Greater Reset

This is a presentation I gave recently for a wonderful event called The Greater Reset. In it I talk about the internal discussion many of us are having during this time.

As the world experiences more and more perceived persecution in the form of angry germs, tyrannical lockdowns, and the like—is there more to this victim story? And do we actually have the option to opt-out of this suffering, if we perhaps become more curious and resourceful in our thinking?

This Krishnamurti quote comes up often for me: "It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society."

And it raises the question, do we choose to compromise ourselves to fit in with that profoundly sick society? Or do we choose to find our voice, stand our ground, and hold the container in service of the whole?

If there’s one thing I’ve learned practicing what I’ll call “narrative-based medicine” it’s that the story we tell ourselves matters.

Your symptoms and feelings are personal messages to you, from you, about you. And if we can rewrite our victim stories, and exit the perpetual triangle of Persecutor > Victim > Savior, a world of seemingly endless possibilities opens up for us.

But we have to change our stories first.

It's my hope that this inspires you to take off your proverbial mask and speak your truth. And in doing so, I hope you hear the story you’re telling, and then refine it to match the one you want.
