Wording The World
What if your sense of purpose was based,
not on the dreams you chase,
but on the life you live?
The quality of your life is not just a result of your conditions, but is in the eyes with which you see it and the heart you bring to it. We all have the amazing capacity to change our experience of life, indeed to change the world, by changing the context within which we perceive it. The word "context" actually comes from the middle English and Latin derivatives "con" + "texere," which means "the weaving together of words." How we word the world (the stories we tell and the language we use to understand and describe our experience) determines the quality of our lives, the possibilities we see, and the choices we make.
The ancients believed in the power of words to create reality, but we have lost respect for this incredible gift. We use words casually and often disastrously and then wonder why our lives are a mess. Wording the world is a way of giving voice to your heart and expressing the life energy that is flowing through you. Our words sanctify experience by naming it, which provides the metaphoric context of meaning and determines what we see, hear, and feel in the literal context in which we live.
What Is "Wording The World?"
The ability to use your language to “word the world” in ways that allow you and others to navigate life effectively. The ability to engage in a genuine dialogue with life, to create worthy encounters with others, and to bring you to life and life to you.

1. The Power of Presence
Presence is the act of bringing our attention to life in the moment. Most of us live in an abstracted world of concern or thought that splits attention, takes attention away from the present, and limits effectiveness in life. Our presence ultimately determines our power to manifest what we want or to charm others and the world.
2. The Gift of Engagement
Presence brings our full self into the moment. Engagement is the ability to enter into a genuine relationship and an honest dialogue with our self, with others and with life. Engagement is the process of bringing our unique self to the unique situation at hand and acting in the world from our core.
3. The Art of Reflection
Presence and engagement allows us to act in the world. Reflection is the ability to take the world in to ourselves, to mirror it inside, and to reflect on what it teaches us or offers to us. Reflection occurs on two levels: 1. Mirroring: to reflect or duplicate the world outside within us, and to embody aspects of the world, and 2. Reflecting: the ability to reflect on what this means or teaches us. This second reflection is part of cultivation.
4. The Craft Of Cultivation
We take the world in to ourselves in the first reflection through mirroring and embodiment. Then we begin to think deeply about it and ponder it in the second reflection. We consider what it teaches us or means to us or about us, what it reminds us of, and what it is like metaphorical in our lives or the world. We use the raw material we discovered through mirroring and embodiment and cultivate it into useful insight, understanding, guidance, or further inquiry. Hence, we cultivate what we received so that it can be given back to the world in contribution.
5. The Charm of Contribution
Contribution cycles back in our presence and offerings. Contribution is not only what products or services we give to the world, but how we charm others by the life we live. We are changed through the process mirroring, embodiment, and cultivation and we bring a new presence back to the world. We have the unique capacity, not only to learn, which all animals and all livings things can do, but to take learning and codify it into a set of “truths” about how to live life and then communicate this to each other. Through contribution we make ourselves and the world better!
We will use writing, drawing, and dialogue and co-coaching to explore the liminal edge of self, the point of contact between us and the world, to master how we interact with ourselves, others, and the world in creating our experience.
