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.

[LIGHT WORK] We can’t get to the light, until we understand the suffering.

I’ve struggled for a long time with wondering if pain and suffering were essential to growth. Are they essential to me being a more expanded, clear minded, loving, joyous, sexy human being? Do I have to hurt to get there? Well, I fucking hope not… but I haven’t figured out a way around suffering yet.

[LIGHT WORK] The upside of suffering… sort of.

You see, there is suffering in the sensitivity. It hurts to feel. And we’re raised to strive—to desensitize—and it’s killing us. I think the strength is in opening. That opening to feel is where resiliency is born.

[LIGHT WORK, Ep. #1] Friends, Lovers, and Therapy5

[LIGHT WORK] The union. The bliss. The bind…Friendship is EVERYthing.

I want to go deep into this conversation about creating Fulfilling Friendships. I’ve got lots to say about engaged listening, self respect, breaking up (when necessary), and celebrating our friend-loves. I’ve also got plenty of opinions and practices for self-compassion, deep spiritual devotion, healthier relationships with our damn phones, and better quality sleep.

[LIGHT WORK] Friends, Lovers, and Therapy

I asked about a zillion people what they wanted more of in their lives. The #1 craving, by far: more fulfilling FRIENDSHIPS. We’re connection starved, we know this. Let me give you a peek into my own circle. In this first episode of LIGHT WORK, I use my own friends as how-to examples for creating radical support and sweetness in your life.

Do not doubt the wisdom of your rage

Do not doubt the wisdom of your rage. (inspired by recent events)

Popularity isn’t always true power. Money isn’t always success. Experience does not guarantee wisdom. Question it all. And do not doubt the wisdom of your rage.

GOOD MANNERS and some wuv. We could all use more of them-feature

GOOD MANNERS and some wuv. We could all use more of them.

There are still some basic good manners that should prevail no matter our generation, station, or affiliation. Here’s what it might mean to be classy, kind, and considerate whenever you are able (and we are almost always able).

The most powerful possible Yes to women

…to the dark, the spacious, the sweet, the jaded, the women who live as certain as light rays,
who renovate broken boardrooms and policies with justified anger and overwhelming Love —
Love of inclusion, of ecology, of bone solid Truth — Love of Love.
