How to Start a Mastermind Group. Jen Louden + I Jam on the Power of Your People.

You need people.

You can’t, shouldn’t, couldn’t do it alone. Anywhere worth getting to will take a cast of caring, lucid, master minds beside you.

Everything I’ve accomplished has had inner circle support — high-minded, big strategy, sleeves-rolled up kind of support. No secrets, souls-bared, nuts and bolts hashing it out. Late nights in living rooms, emergency cellphone calls on street corners. Power advice by texts. Three-day retreats with coloured pens, calendars out and red wine. You get the idea.

What’s more, not only have my masterminds helped me hurtle myself through space with their genius input, but my capacity to be of service to them has kept me sharp and sincere — feeling useful and alive. Reciprocity is the engine of sustained greatness.

I’m so passionate about the power of brain trusts and pragmatic cheerleading squads, I wrote an entire session on it in THE FIRE STARTER SESSIONS: SUPPORTING CHARACTERS.

So when Jen Louden told me she was running a new program simply called, How To Start Your Own Mastermind Group, I applauded. Literally. “Jenny Bee! What a GRRREAT idea!” So here we are shaking our Masterminding poms poms in this video:

Jen has been in a brain trust for six years with the likes of Michael Bungay Stanier, Mark Silver, Molly Gordon, Michele Lisenbury Christensen and Eric Klein. Whatta power group. Jen is a Teacher’s Teacher — first class and qualified to get you on your own path, with the illimitable power of a brain trust.

Antidepressants, meditation, the Goddess, and antibiotics. Making up your healing path. There’s a time and place for everything. Knowing the right time and the right place is how you become your own healer.

How to be truly wise? Rock your paradoxes.

True wisdom usually holds and transcends opposing points of view. Wisdom knows that there is always an exception to the rule, that there is a time and place, and that a case-by-case approach is divine protocol.

When “sacred” sex goes south. Freeing our bodies…messing with our minds.

Groupthink is difficult to detect in the self-help space because it’s often spun as progressive and undogmatic. It shimmers with a counter-culture glow.

THE LIE OF AFFILIATION. Or…why group-think can really suck.

THE LIE OF AFFILIATION. The Lie of Affiliation says, “Groupthink is good think.” We could also call this The Lie of Being Cool. Join me for lunch on Facebook Live tomorrow [12pm PST/ 3pm EST] and we’ll bite into the dynamics of group-think (it can really suck) and I’ll do Q&A!

White-Hot-Truth

I want you to love and trust yourself more intensely.

So White Hot Truth is about questioning our quest. Not so that we can get all debaucherous (tho’ that might be exactly what your spiritual evolution requires at the moment. In which case, go for it.) so we can craft a spirituality for ourselves that feels inspired and liberating — instead of a checklist for getting holistic and moral approval ratings.

One of the truest conversations I’ve had - Danielle LaPorte-Audio.

Lies. Truth. Porn. Friendship. Sickness. Motherhood. And softness. One of the truest conversations I’ve had.

Like most humans, on the deepest level, I crave to be known. This conversation is a knowing — one of the truest recorded conversations that I’ve had. Being with my friend Jono Fisher, The Wakeup Project founder, is just…so…deeply comforting.

A few things I believe-laporte-danielle

I think we’re obsessed with protein, and sunscreen, and sameness. And we forget, more tragically than most can understand, that consuming LIGHT is how we grow — in union, and with distinction.

Danielle-LaPorte-Divine-Feminine

Misunderstanding the “Divine Feminine.” And Masculine. And the love between them.

The “divine” in Divine Feminine is about wholeness. It’s where The Great Father and The Great Mother are unified. And that divinity then expresses itself through a feminine energy vehicle, upholding and emphasizing the key qualities and interests of the feminine.

Naïve vulnerability vs. Awake vulnerability

Naïve vulnerability vs. Awake vulnerability. Naïve vulnerability wants to be saved. Awake vulnerability is saving herself by respecting her Truth.

Energy parasites and addiction to chaos-Danielle-LaPorte

Energy parasites and addiction to chaos…and other things to weed out of your life.

Women and feminine-identified types specialize in beginnings, not endings. We prefer to nurture, not exclude. This of course is spectacular and divine and… challenging. Because destruction is essential to creation. Something has to die for your dream to be born. And by that I mean… you may need to cut off it’s life/lie supply and send it down the river to die.
