We dip deeply into words that matter, words that sustain and shift our focus, and words that change our way of being in this world because they are fare more than words. They are qualities of life. Wonder. Observation. Story. Connection. Curiosity. Grace. Civility. Belonging. Creativity. Joy. Loss. Alignment. Mystery. Patterns. Chaos. Goodness. Freedom. And many more.

- Gathering with administrative leaders and faculty to experience how and why these qualities must have an integral space in education communities. The dialogue and hands on exercises place BEING as the essential complement and balance to ACHIEVING.

Over a lifetime of now decades, we have spoken words such as “wonder,” “possibility,” “grief,” “aging,” “unknown,” “practice,” “belonging,” “alignment” “transition” and so many more words that describe a quality of life. We often use them without paying deep, close attention to their vitality and how they can usher us into new horizons.
As an elder, I am revisiting individual life-giving words with more intention. I am savoring the new, surprising richness of each one. I am discovering not only new depth of meaning, but also leaning into more consciousness of the experience of each word. It is delightful fun, even play. More importantly, I am discovering the way in which these words/qualities feed my soul, interactions, and choices with joy.
There is also a world of the sacred in each word.
Exploring the deeper impact of particular words, conversing, sharing stories and perhaps writing together would be a delight for me to facilitate. It is a coming to metaphorical wells that truly nourish us in refreshed or new ways.
I also imagine exploring a word in a circle of elders in a memory care unit, with absolute confidence that the beauty of shared stories would create unforgettable moments.
Integrating these qualities into family life has the capacity to be transformative…and playful. I believe there is a way in which these also are effective when integrated with other tools for parenting complex children (ADHD, learning differences, etc.).
