A note from David
What an amazing week it has been!
The Lab Launch
We hosted 60 people for the first launch sessions of The Threshold Lab. We explored radical presence, toured the new platform, and started the conversation about the future of our global learning community. There were lots of great questions and an appetite for more dialogue. What also stood out for me was the nervous excitement around stepping into something new yet filled with so much potential for all of us.
As a result, we have decided to extend the series of complimentary open houses through the end of June. Come take the Lab for a test drive so you can see what it has to offer you in terms of:
- Connecting with others with shared interests
- Practicing your skills to deepen your mastery
- Incubating new applications of this work
The Lab and all those who gather there, from visitors to veterans, is the future of The Moment Institute and of professional development itself. We look forward to having you stop by to check it out!
Once you register, you will receive an email with a Zoom link that is good for all remaining dates (June 13, 20, 27) and times (10am ET / 6pm ET).
The WBECS Summit
I returned to the summit to speak about the future of coaching and shared our work with nearly 2,200 coaches from around the world. It was a personal and provocative session that I felt was one of my strongest presentations EVER. While I tipped over some of the sacred cows of coaching for the sake of what I think people and the world need, there was a collective exhale from so many who felt liberated to coach/continue to coach in a more natural and human way. I am confident that many of them will come to join us to travel the path with no path that we are on. I left the audience with the following invitation — that I will offer you as well:
The time is now...
- To commit without knowing enough
- To commence without feeling ready
- To create without waiting for permission
- To contribute without needing perfection
As a special BONUS, I am offering a debrief of my summit presentation on June 16th at 10am ET and 6pm ET (US).
The Post-Threshold Retreat
We have 20 people who will join us for the first Post-Threshold Retreat to be held near Bath in the UK. I am thrilled to be able to work live again and to debut some of my newest transformative work. We are planning on retreats in the US and Australia for later this year! Stay tuned.
I am grateful for all of you who helped us to get to this place and to Emily who has joined our team. I have crossed my own threshold in recent weeks as I am shifting to more of a messenger and mentor mode to stand behind those who are taking this work forward. I could sense this new voice quite strongly in the WBECS session and in working intensely on the Integrative Development book.
The world needs all of us to be present in deeper and more powerful ways. The Lab is the place where we will support one another to bring this to life.
Blessings to you all.
P.S. Another highlight this week was finding out today that for our faculty retreat in October at Ghost Ranch in New Mexico we will be able to meet in the room where thirty years ago I ran week-long experiential workshops on the Shadow. These were the bridge out of my first career and the beginning of a journey that led to Narrative Coaching, Narrative Release and Integrative Development. I have come full circle...
