The January 2016 Wholeness Hangout

Dancing with Responsibility: Exploring Wholeness with Hiro Boga

Wholeness Hangout MandalaMy guest for the January 2016 Wholeness Hangout was Hiro Boga, a business strategist, transformational teacher, and energy alchemist. For years I have observed with awe and respect the depth with which Hiro engages with life. When I read her blog post, Dance Me: Responsibility Troll, Meet the Deva of Responsibility, I knew I wanted her voice on a Wholeness Hangout.

I am thrilled to offer you the recording of our conversation, in which explore what responsibility means. For whom or what are we responsible? How can we know? What possibilities are available to us? How can we engage with the notion of responsibility in a way that is enlivening for ourselves, our communities, our planet? In answering these questions Hiro took us on a journey to our deepest selves. Toward the end she led a lovely exercise in energy alchemy.

Some thoughts about responsibility

“I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather. I possess tremendous power to make life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration. I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis is escalated or de-escalated, and a person is humanized or de-humanized. If we treat people as they are, we make them worse. If we treat people as they can be, we help them become what they are capable of becoming.” – Goethe, 1749-1832

Each and every hour make up your mind…. to accomplish the matter presently at hand with genuine seriousness, loving care, independence and justice. Allow your mind freedom from all other considerations. This you can do if you perform every action in your life as if it were your last, putting aside all your wayward impulses and emotional resistance to the choices of reason, and all pretense, selfishness and discontent with what has been allotted to you. See how few are the things which a person needs to master in order to live a tranquil and godly existence. The gods ask nothing more of us.” – Marcus Aurelius

Three questions for the new year from my friend and mentor, Bill Cumming:

What will be brought to you?
How will you respond?
What will you bring to 2016?
