I turned 49 years old last week which prompted a fair amount of reflecting on my purpose and what I most want to contribute in my remaining years on the planet. As we teach folks how to do in the Skid Row School, I have re-committed to what I am here to do: support large-scale change leaders in bringing their fullest, biggest, most badass selves forth to create massive transformation on our planet.
You know, no big whoop.
I am a woman on a mission and will continue to tweak the Billions Institute to be even more fully aligned with my purpose in the months and years ahead.
There are over 1,000 people on the Billions Institute mailing list. I’m so glad you are here and hope you will stay. I haven’t written to you much in the past mostly because I didn’t want to bother you.
And yet, I have so much I want to share with you.
Starting today, I will be offering my thoughts to you on a weekly basis.
Even though I teach about the science of large-scale change, I, too, am on this journey with you. I love the human connection that is a natural consequence of authenticity. Therefore, I will not be holding anything back or packaging what I share to be “appropriate.” I’m sure it will even get messy from time to time, but that’s how we learn.
Not to mention I believe those of us who are weaving together the web of life need one another’s presence now more than ever. I truly believe that friends don’t let friends lead large-scale change alone.
If you want a weekly “Becky raw and unfiltered” e-mail with practical pointers about the science of large-scale change plus a healthy dose of personal development, stay tuned. Meanwhile, you can get a bit of a sneak peak about my latest and greatest thinking here.
If that does not appeal to you, unsubscribe now and I promise there will be no hard feelings.
Great big hug to each and every one of you (except the non-huggers),
p.s. In case you missed it, check out our latest blog on Skid Row School alumni Elizabeth Cushing: a force to be reckoned with, bringing safe and healthy play to an elementary school near you!
pps. Check out my birthday present! We commissioned LA artist Colette Miller to transfer to a “step and repeat” one of her famous Angel Wing paintings that she first did on Skid Row but now they are all over the world. We’ll bring this beautiful piece of art to all future Skid Row Schools for participants to take a #spreadyourwings selfie! We unveiled this with our fellows at my little birthday gathering and wanted to share with you these beautiful, radiant human beings. In order of appearance, behold Maša Uzicanin (up top), Katie Hong, Eunice Nichols, Alison Marczuk, Michelle Molitor, Jennifer LeSar, Lindsay Hill, Brigid Ahern, and Dr. Elizabeth Kelly.
We have a few more openings for the July 10th – 13th and October 23rd – 26th sessions of the Skid Row School.
Remember: if you are an alumni and you want to bring back your team back with you as a strategic retreat of sorts, you can come back for free (your team still has to pay but you’re free!) Just use the code “alumni” when you apply for a group ticket and we’ll take care of the rest.
