Fact: Innovation and transformation occurs through collaboration.
So, I am extremely excited to share my latest collaboration with you.
It's Global. It's Fresh. It's Future Focused.
My latest e-book, The New Age Lawyers, is an in-depth series of conversations with 13 innovation professionals across the globe. It explores what is the new normal for a career in the law.
Over "20 questions" you will find out what it takes to live, breathe and thrive in the legal roles of the future.
They say the best things in life are free.
Indeed, The New Age Lawyers e-book is exactly that. And thanks to Elevate, you can download it for free from annalozynski.com. Link in bio.
2 weeks left and I'm back on the track 💪🏼
Here picture from the last year, where me, @pawelzalejski and @yacmen were exploring this wild part of the mountains in Zermatt. No gondolas to get there = no crowds.
A Vinyasa class without a Sun Salute...without a chaturanga...and as much as I love playing with Cat/Cow variations we didn’t do a single movement that could be likened to anyone of these things. We did do pistol squats though, thanks for the inspo @ohtrisha , and we did segment movement while playing with balancing, and we did try to figure out how to use different parts of the body to strengthen and move other parts of the body.
During self-practice time (a few minutes usually at the end of class where students get to get creative and tend to themselves more specifically) I half expected everyone to move into a downward dog but instead people crafted these really interesting and curious movements that truly complimented the work we’d done up to that point. I even heard two students discussing how “gentle on the shoulders” the class was without the push ups and downdogs.
Trying these new variations on what a yoga class looks like is a bit intimidating. How do you provide students with what they expect and want from their yoga classes and also offer up an expanded view of all that’s available just out on the periphery? It’s nice to take a chance and learn from & get the feedback on how it served those who showed up 🙏
ABOUT YOURSELF and others!!! •
Ask yourself why 5 times about that one thing you are giving your self shit about. Keep going if you are still in the deprecating, bully, a-hole to yourself answers, keep going!!! EXAMPLE BELOW
Amber, why have your mornings been so sh*ty this week? -cuz i sucks with time management -cuz I’ve raised punk kids who don’t listen
-cuz my hubby is so xyz and won’t help out
-cuz I’m lazy and not a morning person ☝🏽ALL BULLSHIT☝🏽 but all things I’ve said to myself (judgmental). •
When curiosity takes over and I keep digging, I find a myriad of reasons my phycological self and emotional self have felt velcrod to my bed:
-various big stressors -a few insecurities -some fear of success and of failure
While none of those feel great, at least they’re honest assessments that I can now do something about. Without trashing myself, I can course correct, one of these things at a time, and get back to beasting my mornings! —————————————————
It’s not exactly easy making sense of why we experience what we do, especially the pain. And that’s okay.
Sometimes being told that our thoughts and what we believe is the reason why we feel what we do can feel triggering, annoying and as though we wish to rebel against that truth.
Instead, (and if this feels aligned and good) just rest and be with what you are experiencing. Don’t dissect it. Not right now. Be present.
Be present with you.
You have the answers, trust that they will unfold as they are meant to.
For now, dear one, simply feel in this present moment. Do only what will feel nurturing to your soul.
Because of the work I’ve done, the tools I keep in my belt and all that I know - I find myself at times rolling my eyes at all that “I know to do” and I consciously choose not to dissect, not to do what “I know will support me”.
Sometimes I want to simply feel deeply what it is that I’m feeling. That what supports me most is none of those things - being curious, talking about it, asking the questions...
After gifting this time and the feelings of heaviness subside, and I truly feel ready, I’ll ask the questions and get curious - what thoughts fueled this? Where did they come from? What is their purpose?
First - feel what you’re fucking feeling. Be with it. Allow it. Ease and trust and flow. Fuck figuring it out right now.
Today I choose to feel it all. Tomorrow I’ll ask the questions.
If you need the reminder as I did today to sit and be present with your heart, here it is ❤️.
We’ve ended many timelines of our old stories running us from the shadows. Stories rooted in our experiences as young children and teenagers, stories in which we carried our trauma and pain, and also our seeds of genius, are transformed. We can trust now that we have the tools to heal, that we are supported, and that we are prepared for the larger work there is to do. We are no longer the wounded healers, we are the master healers who continue to refine our skills thru devotion to our craft. Yes, healing continues. Transformation continues. The alchemy of shadow and light, water and fire, as above so below, as within so without, as the cosmos so the divine human continues.
As we are starting these new timelines, new stories, the key is presence. Stay with it. We can meet ourselves each day with wonder. Let us tune into our hearts. Let us meet our people as if we are discovering who they are anew each day.
Be curious. Be playful.
“I wonder who I am, what I know?”
“I wonder who they are, what they know?”
Open the heart and connect, bond, bring absolute presence and attention, and listen. Leave out the comparison and competition. We’ve not known each other in the way that is possible now; from a place of
increased wholeness and holiness, sovereignty
and heightened intuition.
Go so lightly, bringing our whole selves along, including the delight of our inner child and the keen eye for justice that our teenage self knows so well. Bring the spark of life, the Eros, bring the incredible resilience flowing thru from our ancestors. Bring the radiant being who is rooted self surety.
Speak words of gratitude; that each interaction with another teaches, inspires, redirects, creates, reveals, and is yet another opportunity for bonding and belonging. There is true unity which we are now catching glimpses of and it WILL engender change of the miraculous kind.
Hear the heart’s desires.
Live the prophetic poetry and mystical music of this embodied life.
18,000 of you following this page. Wowzers. Thank you for listening to my voice 🙏❤️. I know—weird 🧐image for this kind of post. I woke up to my wrist like this, this morning🤷♀️. I’m pretty sure it’s a Ganglion Cyst. It doesn’t hurt much (yet). I’ve had developing arthritis for some years, and on-and-off issues with neuropathy, Ulnar Tunnel Syndrome, and Torticollis (Read “Choosing Hope & Turning Toward The Pain” to read about some of it, at link above ⬆️). I haven’t had one in a while but used to also get ocular migraines, where half of my face would go numb, along with half of my vision missing, & slurred speech (Scary, I know, & yes, TIA/strokes were ruled out). Chronic pain sucks & hard-to-explain body symptoms are annoying, but I’m not looking for sympathy in this post. Relatively speaking, I’m not experiencing nearly the pain I used to & not nearly what some folks continue to experience. I feel very lucky & grateful (& aware of my privilege/access to healthcare) for this body of mine AND sometimes it’s frustrating when it doesn’t work (or look) like how I’d like it to or like how it used to. These issues with pain, neuropathy, together with PCOS have flavored my recovery in interesting ways. In some ways, they’ve strangely helped. Being able to connect some of the body symptoms to pure genetics (arthritis & neuropathy runs in the family) & being able to be curious about how bodies function, change, respond, adapt, freeze, fail, degenerate, decline, heal...has opened me up to different ways of experiencing my body. At times, it’s involved a mix of grieving & radical acceptance. This. Is. My. Body. It is what it is. I don’t always like it. I work really hard on caring for it & respecting. I love it (intentional, action, active verb). Which sometimes means radically accepting its flaws & inabilities, & seeking to appreciate its abilities. Anyhow, these were my thoughts this morning when I woke up to this lovely bump. Here’s hoping it stops growing as it has across the day. Can you relate? Let me know below ⬇️ or above ⬆️ in stories.
And, oh yeah, thanks for listening to my voice ❤️🙏.
Holding down the fort, expanding her mind (and miles) while her fellow Explorers are prepping for the SAT!🚴🏻♀️🖼💫. Thank you @guggenheim for the fantastic Scavenger Hunt, and thank you to, @citibike , our @ymcanyc staff, and friends for joining in!
Good luck to our studying Explorers, you’ll nail it!💫.
