Shattering the chains of beliefs

We're a kind of consciousness on crack, bound by our beliefs and experiences that shape our reality. Our life's journey, with its traumas, triumphs, and challenges, moulds our neural networks, constantly shaping our biology. Everything that happens to us, becomes us. We are, essentially, addicted to our worldviews. The good news? Mindsets are not as [...]

From dismissal to extraordinary

The first employee I ever dismissed – after two serious notices – recently invited me to spend three beautiful days with her and her family in the Balkans. Though I had to let go another 60 staff in the same operation due to budget cuts, Jelena’s case was different. Her position was not at stake, [...]

The Abbot

During a work trip to Nepal, I attended the funeral of the Tibetan Lama, Rinpoche Geshe Lhundrup Rigsel. It was a day-long ceremony at the Kopan Monastery assisted by 900 monks. A long procession carried the Lama’s body to the place of cremation in a meditative sitting position and dressed like a deity. Hours [...]

We had worked side-by-side in Cibitoke, situated in the triangle between Congo, Rwanda, and Burundi, and very [...]

All roads lead to Kathmandu

I remember the scent of the Arabic sweets my mom brought with her back from Lebanon. She kept them in a special cupboard and we were not allowed to touch.
